Yes, it definitely looks like Chanel, as does the jacket.

LOVE the jacket and blouse goes well. Problem with the pants.
Don't like her hair like that

princess gertrude 06-04-2012 09:06 PM

Love the jacket & blouse, the pants are not the best. I can't help but be so proud of her, loosing what looks like about all the baby weight she gained during pregnancy.

Kit 06-04-2012 09:20 PM

the hair is dreadful, I love Victoria but this is an absolute no-go. The rest of the outfit is okay but nothing special.

LadyFinn 06-09-2012 02:30 AM

Victoria's jacket is from swedish Mayla.

Nice dress, I like the pattern very much. And since I and many Finns wear dark colours also in the summer, the darkness of the dress doesn't bother me. And she is wearing her diamond teardrop again.
The dress looks to have a similar model as this one from Marc by Marc Jacobs.

I think Victoria looked lovely. And so happy! :flowers:

Its a lovely dress with a very soft print but unfortunately its not a dress I would like to see on a royal at an official events, its to casual.

Duke of Marmalade 06-16-2012 01:11 PM

I like the dress and I think its ok for the event. Not liking the return of the inevitable ponytail.

IloveCP 06-16-2012 02:00 PM

It's an ok dress, nothing more.

Daria_S 06-16-2012 08:15 PM

I think Victoria looks nice. Not a fan of the dress, but her smile more than makes up for it.

The dress is nice, nothing special but ok.

bertie5252003 06-16-2012 11:40 PM

I like the beige ... the pants I agree are not her best look though all the colours look great together. The black dressis boring and does not a thing for her. IMO

Crown Princess Victoria on her birthday at Solliden today, July 14, 2012, looking lovely in a very light blue:



** Full view ** Full view 2 ** Upper part **

princess gertrude 07-14-2012 05:29 PM

Victoria looks fabulous! The dress color is wonderful, the cut is great and the cardigan is nice. And her hair looks great tied back in a simple low bun. And of course the best is having Estelle and Daniel with her! Can't wait to see even more of this sweet little family.

Daria_S 07-14-2012 08:52 PM

I think Victoria looks lovely in light blue. Her coloring is dark, so when she wears paler shades, the contrast's great. I really love the cut and color of her outfit. She is glowing with happiness.

MichelleQ2 07-14-2012 09:42 PM

Any information on Victoria's earrings? I'm not that familiar with her jewels. Those earrings are stunning.

MARG 07-14-2012 10:46 PM

Victoria really knows how to pull out the stops and today she was a vision of
happiness and joy. Her chic pale blue ensemble, while pastel, was not pallid and it's depth of colour highlighted her colouring. The style of the dress was very elegant but I would love to have seen it without the cardigan. The deeper royal blue of her sandals was a lovely and very flattering counterpoint, or pop, of colour.

Victoria's hair was a triumph of elegance over necessity. Small children and long or loose hair are an "accident" waiting to happen and Victoria ensured that her birthday photo call with Daniel and Estelle never missed a beat. With her hair softly pulled back into a low, stylised, bun-like up do and her gorgeous earrings and necklace, she looked absolutely fabulous. (I was going to say "adorable" but that is a description best left to small children, in this case, Estelle).

Needless to say, her fabulous megawatt smile was and is her pièce de résistance. Her obvious joy in her family and her life is one of her most attractive attributes.

LadyFinn 07-15-2012 01:09 AM

As said before, the pale blue looks very good with Victoria's dark colours. The dress looks very lovely, I hope to see it sometimes without the cardigan.

What could possibly be wrong with the cardigan? It looks like every other cardigan, ever.

Frelinghighness 07-15-2012 08:27 PM

Not a fan of cardigans on grown women. This one covered up the bodice of what looks like a very elegant and well fitted dress.
Love the hair and earrings and color.

I agree; I don't care for cardies.

Me either, she's a beautiful girl and the whole look is ruined by that jacket thing.

To me, it casualizes the outfit.

casualfan 07-16-2012 10:35 AM

I disagree about the cardigan. The event is meant to be rather casual and friendly, and if there was a chill in the air, it's no surprise she needed a sweater.

IloveCP 07-16-2012 04:19 PM

I think she looks lovely! I love the color.

This summer have been quite cold in Sweden this year, so the cardigan was probably needed due to the weather. Better with a cardigan than goose bumps.

I like this dress on Victoria, it's something different, and I like the colour combination. This "thing" at her ponytail is too girlish though. The shoes are beautiful and suit well with the dress.

dazzling 08-04-2012 02:14 PM

Its a nice, simple summer dress and it suits her with her new tan IMO. I don't like the shoes, they should've been solid color since you have the blocking going on in the dress.

I completely agree with you, dress and shoes are great, this hair ornament thing not so much.

Daria_S 08-04-2012 05:40 PM

I think the dress is all right; it's appropriate for the occasion, but nothing to write home about. However, her usual smile is absolutely delightful. She looks so happy.

Love the shoes and dress.

Correct but I love the shoes, if something needs to go its the dress, too much going on, not pretty at all.

I dont mind the ponytail in general but these childish looking cheap hairclips make the look horrible to me.

IloveCP 08-06-2012 12:48 AM

Hate the colors combined. Not a great look.

The hair clip is awful as usual.

The more I look at it, the more the hair ornament looks okay to me. A little girlish, yes, but it's great to see her. Also, not a completely boring ponytail.

It looks like she and Maxima need to trade shoes. Maxima's always look too small, and these look just a little large.

No, I'd say it looks the opposite to a fake tan, it looks as if she's been walking around with bare legs but with her feet in sneakers.

Boris 08-15-2012 03:27 PM

Very nice dress, and it finally came to Victoria's mind that a ponytail might look more appealing when using her own hair instead of juvenile accessories to hold it together.
The platform-sandal-stilettos are ghastly, far too high and almost manage to ruin the look.

casualfan 08-15-2012 03:41 PM

I have no problem with the shoes. They are simple, and the platform is surely more comfortable than pumps. The platform isn't even that high.

Krisotter 08-15-2012 03:54 PM

Oh, I almost forgot, a very un-Victoria light shade of nail polish as well. I like it!

Prinsessan 08-15-2012 04:59 PM

The shoes are really terrible. I have always liked that dress on her, but something is bothering me this time, though I can't really put my finger on it. I think a light, sheer cardigan/jacket or something of that kind might have looked nice.

Daria_S 08-15-2012 05:25 PM

Those shoes look like death traps, and the only nice thing about them is the shade of blue, otherwise, hideous. The dress is very nice, as well as the accessories.

IloveCP 08-15-2012 05:40 PM

She looks elegant. I love the color and the cut. However I dislike the shoes.

Artemisia 08-15-2012 05:45 PM

The dress is lovely and suits Victoria both in colour and style.
The shoes, however, are not such good choice. They are not bad on their own: it's just I never liked open-toed shoes for official engagements.

A tad harsh . . . maybe we could just bury them! Incidental an elegant young woman from my work just fell off her fabulous heels . . . she broke her ankle . . . it might have been worth it if the shoes were to die for but they weren't. They looked much like these clodhoppers!

I think all the bracelets on her wrists look like junk but the earrings look lovely.

Frelinghighness 08-15-2012 08:21 PM

They win ugliest shoes on the boards award!
Great color and cut of the dress

Duke of Marmalade 08-16-2012 04:18 AM

I dont find the shoes as horried as other posters but they are certainly not a good choice for this kind of event. I absolutely love the dress, colour & draping, a classy brooch would have been a nice touch.

What I find horried is the messy hair despite the ponytail, is there no spray or comb in Victoria's bathroom?

dazzling 08-16-2012 08:21 AM

I don't care about the shoes, there is nothing horrible about them besides that they are platform. The dress is pretty but it doesn't sit well around the was it area, the belt seems to high up.

Do you have a pic showing "messy" hair? I don't see that at all in the pics posted here.

Also, the waist of the dress sits high because it's empire waist, so it's supposed to.

Absolutely; the dress is so stark that a nice pin would look perfect. (But then she should not wear those bracelets).

I never like her hair, it always looks strained away from her face in that boring ponytail. If she had a flattering haircut, it would soften that angular jaw and she would look so much prettier.

(But I don't like the hair styles on any of the Swedish royals: the Queen has helmet hair and Madeline looks like those ancient posters of Farrah, imo.)

Princess Luna 08-16-2012 10:43 AM

The dress and the shoes is just fantatstic, but i wish she would do something about here hair. That ponytail is so boring now;)

I think the ponytail style looks messy because of the cowlicks - to me it looks unkempt. Adding to that the the ponytail is so boring and doesnt look as if it was done with some effort

Well, I'll agree that I prefer when she wears her hair in other styles, but am I wrong that it seems like her hair is thinner in front (looking like a cowlick)? This is common in someone who's just had a baby.

dazzling 08-16-2012 01:58 PM

I don't find her hair messy at all or unkept. I actually like the ponytail this time round, no clip shown or elastic band. Moreover, a fringe or a softer front cut would suit her, also a new haircut with a style. Her hair seems the same for ages.

Daria_S 08-16-2012 05:25 PM

I love how she styled her hair. It looks perfectly neat to me; no loose strands, and it's out of her face. I see plenty of professional women style their hair in this fashion for work. It's functional and appropriate.

bertie5252003 08-17-2012 12:40 AM

I love the whole look including the shoes she looks fresh and relaxed just gorgeous IMO .. I mean her hair is always an issue but I think she looks great this time .. I do know what you all mean re the ponytail situation it is really boring but I think the outfit outshines the hair IMO

Boris 08-23-2012 07:55 AM

IMHO this overall look is 'practical' enough for a quick ride to go shopping for groceries by bicycle, but a far too casual and unappealing choice of outfit for an official engagement and such a nice occasion.
It makes August feel like October and makes Prince Daniel in his very appropriate suit and tie look overdressed.

Im not sure it's too casual. After all, they are opening a walking path at the zoo.

I'm not sold on the shoes, however. And Daniel is a bit overdressed, but maybe he had another engagement/appointment for later in the day?

Daria_S 08-23-2012 04:07 PM

If Victoria ere going for a stroll in the park, this look would have been great. I think a different color and style of trousers would have been a better choice for an engagement. The shoes are plain awful.

Prinsessan 08-23-2012 05:29 PM

I think her outfit is fine for the occasion, but agree that it makes Daniel look a little overdressed in his suit.

Frelinghighness 08-23-2012 06:58 PM

If she had a different jacket/sweater/blazer, maybe in a knit, it would be ok.
Just because it's a Moncler jacket, and presumably expensive, doesn't sell it for me. It doesn't look chic or expensive.

Well if you judge by the weather in Sweden the recent days you could think it´s october... ;) Daniel look way overdressed for such an occasion imo.

Prinsessan 08-25-2012 03:03 AM

Now that I've seen a video of the whole thing I think that Daniel was indeed overdressed. It appears they were walking/hiking along the whole path and I think Victoria's outfit is totally appropriate for that.

If they had been just walking at their love path, Victoria's outfit would have been fine IMO, but this was the inauguration of their wedding gift they received from WWF. The inauguration has been delayed for two years. Victoria could have had a nice pant suit, that would have been appropriate.

Nice dress and look for Crown Princess Victoria at the Mercedes-Benz Stockholm Fashion Week in Stockholm today, August 27, 2012:

kathl29 08-27-2012 09:31 AM

Loved the dress for Fashion Week - well fitting and a great colour for Victoria.

I really don't like the hat for the Bishop ordination. It looks like a satellite dish on the side of her head. The suit is not really that well fitted either - it makes her look much bigger around the waist and hips than she actually is.

LadyFinn 08-27-2012 09:43 AM

I like the recycled suit she wore yesterday. And she had nice shoes too.

I like the fascinator too, it has great colours. But she should have woren it like she did once before:

Today's dress at the Fashion Week opening is absolutely beautiful, the colour looks great on her. Her bun looks lovely, but she has too much gel and a little too much make up.

the fascinator worn at the church service is lovely which when worn the way Victoria did over the eye it looks very silly.

Yesterday, August 26, at the ordination of a new bishop in Uppsala Cathedral, her look was a bit questionable as to her little hat ;)

:eek:- From the side it looks like a phone headset- no words for the front- was she making an unfashionable attempt to protect herself from bees/flies? Next time, try bug spray....;):lol:

The un-fascinating fascinator at the Bishop’s ordination was placed at such an idiotic angle that it’s funny at best (all wrong for the occasion) and at worst so ghastly that you think someone got creative with silly photoshopping… those who are into the ‘Find a caption!’ game should have a field day.

Today’s cocktail dress comes in an interesting color but has a terrible fit of the top, her hair is glued to the scalp far too severely to be flattering to Victoria’s face shape, I find her eye make up heavy-handed and those odd gladiator wrist pieces are a strange way to accessorize… combined with rather ugly YSL platform sandals, not an elegant overall look, IMHO.

I agree with you about the fascinator from the church and the fit of the dress from Fashion Week. I like her accessories, though, and I think the hair was slicked so severely because she was going for kind of a futuristic look. Not my favorite though, I must say.

I think CP Victoria tried to make an extra effort for the occasion of opening the fashion week - but in general, the notion of 'Extra Effort' is often ill-advised as it tends to produce unfortunate and out-of-character style results.

I quite like her outfit from the bishop ceremony, except the hat, it looked ridiculous! I like it much better this way.

Her outfit from the fashion show is not my favourite. The dress looks too big or ill-fitted, not sure. Though the colour is beautiful on her. Also don't like the shoes.

From a distance her hair and make-up look great, but this...

The hairdo is very unflattering! Nothing worse than a paltry bun, IMHO.
