Well, I think the style awards go to Margrethe and Victoria, although I am thrilled so see Mette Marit in such a lovely colour - she couldn't have gotten further awar from her normal dark colours!

The opera house looks fantastic, very modern but still appropriate.

She looks thin in this pic ;) Maybe its because of the posture...

I hope we'll see a better view of her dress without the jacket. It seems nice.

Wind is sometimes not a lady's friend! :biggrin: Without the jacket, Mette looks really nice! But the real star of the show is Victoria! My, my, my, fantastic! Nothing out of place :smile:

Actually the press seem to disagree with you. They were prasing the chancellor's look.
And, honestly, I was positively surprised as well.
We usually just see her with pant suits. The gala look was somehow really elegant.
I liked the green jacket she wore. IMO the dress looked really elegant in videos.

The Queen obviously loved the Gala opening :D and the Chancellor welcomed the Press in German. ;)

She had an Audiance in the Palace in the morning and visited the Much Museum in the afternoon.
So she was invited to attend the opening of the Gala as well.

No, they didn't take any.
I guess the agencies were just not interested in sending photograpers to the airport as they knew there'd be better pics in the evening. ;)

Unfortunately many of the pictures of the Chancellor were taken from above allowing a look at her decolletage that is not the most appealing. At some point in most womens lives the breast muscles do not allow for a perky view and at that time a slightly higher neck line looks better. Other than the revealing peek she looked very elegant.
Victoria - stunning. She has found her style and she will eventually follow her mother's elegance.
Congratulations to Norway on your beautiful Opera House.

I agree but apart from that all ladies look lovely. I particulary love MMs, Sonjas & Victorias style & outfits - very elegant and appropriate to the occasion.

CP Victoria looks so elegant. She has such poise.

Victoria is her usual wonderful self looking beautiful as always and I'm not quite sure what to think of Queen Sonja's dress yet, maybe when there are more photos of it :flowers:

Indeed! Mette Marit looks very beautiful and elegant!!! :flowers:
