Here is one from Getty of the Queen with her eldest child behind her arriving at the Polar Music Prize:

I get the impression that the King is "in the mood" where he just doesn't like the media. Good that Victoria makes up for it.

Unfortunately so far the agencies with big pics havenīt photos of the Royal ladies at the polar music prize. But IBL has thumbnails. And what I can recognise is great. Victoria doesnīt wear a) a ponytail...b) pants....c) black.

Here are the thumbnails...and now I will go and will wipe the puddle of water (-> tears of joy) up ;)

Dear Lena, thanks a lot for the pics & your funny words!
My deep sigh of relief must be echoing all over the continent as well... I can't believe it: Neither black, ponytail nor glasses on CP Vitoria?!
We're blessed. She looks DAMN good with her hair like this and WITHOUT glasses- her new square ones are absolutely hideous IMO, making her look like an ill-fitted middle-aged extra on the set of 'The Matrix'. So good to see her appear like this: Fresh, young, sexy, and at ease.
And wait a minute, new outfits both for her and Queen Silvia?! They FINALLY went shopping, and they didn't buy pants - Thank God.
In other words, both mother & daughter look great. Queen Silvia is a class act again. And even if CP Victoria isn't interested in fashion, as she has stated a few times too many, she still should enjoy herself at public engagements in the clothes she's wearing - and this time, it looks as if she finally does. Can't wait for bigger pics.
(It seems that Victoria has been hiding great legs under all those pantsuits and oversized skirts. Hope we'll see more of them - it doesn't hurt a 'regal' appearance, just take a look back at Princess Diana or at CP Mary nowadays.)
Again: What a relief. (I'll join you cleaning up that puddle of tears of joy, Lena.)

I agree with both Lena and Boris - how surprising and wonderful to see Victoria dressed in something that is not black or unflattering and made for someone quite a lot older, without those uggly big glasses and without a ponytail! Wow, God must have been on our side tonight! :D

I watched the Polar Music Prize gala on TV tonight, they showed bits of the gala with the music performances, when the recipients received their prizes and then they had interviews of the recipients of this year's prizes from their homes. The royals really seemed to enjoy themselves, and especially Queen Silvia (she and Gilberto Gil, one of the prize recipients this year, share the Brazilian heritage). The Queen was all smiles and even sang along with Gilberto at their seats (not in a microphone, just for themselves) as artists performed one of his songs on stage.

You are welcome, Boris. After reading your post I must say, itīs not me (not that Iīve ever thought Iīm), who is master of funny words, but you. Nice comparison of Victoria and "an ill-fitted middle-aged extra on the set of 'The Matrix'" :D
I agree, that she has great legs...and should show them more often...and just look, how much more beautiful, she looks with "open" hair. She simply isnīt a type for ponytails...


Wow, God must have been on our side tonight!
True! But as you say "tonight". After these ups and downs, Iīm prepared for the next round of "black-in-black, honed with a little ponytail" Well I shouldnīt meet the trouble halfway...but after watching the time after Australia, one tries to be carefully...

wow, Victoria looked fantastic! I hope there will be some larger photos soon!

ursulajohanna 05-24-2005 05:49 AM

Lena, many thanks for posting the little pictures from IBL from Polar-music-prize-award.
Do you see pictures from the queen by World Childhood Gala 25.04.2005 in New York and pictures from Meeting Mentor-Foundation 21./22.04.2005 in Genf? In newspapers I haven't find any pictures.
Many thanks for your help in advance.

Seegerpress has many but for some reason my computer only wants to save them as bmp so I have to reduce the size to save them as jpeg:confused: .

Anyway here is one of Victoria, not in pants, not in black, not with glasess, not with severe ponytail and looking truly sensational...Silvia and Lillian also look wonderful but they usually does. I so wish Victoria will look at the pictures and see how much better she looks with the hair this way and continue to wear it like that:)

Itīs good to see that others have come to this conclusion. Makes one feel a tad better in oneīs opinion. Ha ha ha. Thatīs okay. I was prepared to stand alone in my belief. ha ha ha. Thanks, Larzen, Marezdote and Lena for these wonderful photos. Itīs good to see the family out and about especially Lillian. But as for Victoria, I just might quote an old song from Berlin, no not Irving this time, but Iīll just say that she can always "take my breath away..."
