Mette Marit is always beautiful because she's always smiling :)
I like her clothes! :)

Artemisia 09-05-2012 11:55 AM

A perfectly appropriate and nice look considering the event and the venue.

bertie5252003 09-05-2012 03:21 PM

Nice look for the engagement ....

Prinsessan 09-05-2012 04:00 PM

Love the combination of blazer and jeans, and I think the look would be perfect with a different t-shirt (without print).

Think we've seen that boxy black jacket before. don't think it goes with the skirt at all, completely different textures.
Like the shoes, but not with this outfit

Daria_S 09-06-2012 10:40 PM

I love the jeans and blazer combination. It's appropriate, but still casual and comfortable. Love her ballet flats too. As for the second outfit, I like the color of the skirt, but nothing else. Mette-Marit does indeed have a gorgeous and genuine smile. It lights up her entire face.

fortimo 09-07-2012 02:26 AM

Do you think, does she buy her clothes sometimes in secondhand-shops? Before her marriage she loved to buy so, and sometimes their clothes seems to be secondhand-clothes... I have the feeling also by this purple rock and the black jacket.

bertie5252003 09-07-2012 02:31 AM

Odd outfit IMO the heavy jacket the flowy skirt the summery shoes all pretty alone but an odd combo.

I love this outfit. Everything in it. from the jacket to the shoes and I love when she wears dark colours, it makes her hair (which I love) stand out

dazzling 09-11-2012 02:08 PM

Lovely suit! Isnt this recycled?
The detailing on the hem of the skirt and jacket is quite pretty.

4Pam 09-11-2012 10:05 PM

Great suit! Love the details!

Daria_S 09-11-2012 10:19 PM

I don't mind the suit, but do wish that the detailing wasn't there. Not quite to my taste, but she's able to pull it off quite nicely.

I agree. I would have prefered the suit without the details. It would have been great as a plain blue suit to me.

Yes it's recycled. She wore it e.g. in 2006 during the state visit from Bulgaria, in November 2007 and recently at the Holberg Award, June 2012. She also wore only the top part with trousers in 2006.

bertie5252003 09-12-2012 03:38 PM

I love this suit I am not ctrazy about the heavy hose but the colour of the suit is really flattering and it is a classic IMO

Very dark outfit, but she looks nice.
She's worn it in 2009 at the Holberg Award in Bergen.


Last week she went to the christening of her niece - full view
The skirt is the one she wore in April at the Global Shapers meeting, the blouse was already worn in October 2010.

dazzling 09-15-2012 02:02 PM

Its a noce suit even though recycled a few times. The overall look is too dark, one gets the winter feeling looking at those pictures.

CrownPrincess5 09-15-2012 02:21 PM

She would've looked 1000 times better if she had done something with her hair and wore a little makeup.

NoorMeansLight 09-17-2012 07:52 AM

It's a nice suit, I like it on her. A little more effort with her hair would be good indeed.

The black and white outfit is lovely. I also love the purple purse.

NGalitzine 09-24-2012 06:07 PM

The King and Crown Prince have been wearing black ties and Princess ML has included black in her wardrobe at recent appearances so it would seem they are observing a form of family mourning until after the funeral of the kings sister.

A very glittery dress for a lunch/daytime event IMO. The necklace is just wrong with the dress and such dresses are not meant to be worn with jackets.

NoorMeansLight 09-26-2012 09:36 AM

I like the jacket and the accessories, the dress not so much.

Isn't the dress the same she wore at her official engagement photo?

WOW, it's to her credit that she can fit into it 2 kids late.

It was great to see her and her son attend the CGI (Clinton Global Initiative) meetings.

Artemisia 09-26-2012 02:17 PM

Great she still fits in her pre-wedding dresses, but I'm afraid I never particularly likes this dress: it's too shiny for me.
Otherwise, I've found most of Mette-Marit's sartorial choices during this trip quite nice and elegant.

Wow good eyes! Unbelievable.
On National Day she also wore a suit, she's worn 11 years before.

The jacket is elegant but I never liked that dress.

Daria_S 09-26-2012 08:25 PM

That is one shiny dress (but the color is very flattering on Mette-Marit). I do like the jacket. Kudos to her for staying in such great shape and fitting into a dress that she wore prior to having two children.

sofajr 09-27-2012 11:13 AM

I think those are two different dresses.
More than that was way too thin those days :ermm:

I'm quite sure, it's the same - I put them side by side.
I agree, she was really thin back then...

Larzen 09-27-2012 01:30 PM

When she wore it at the engagement everyone commented it was way to big for her and a very fumpy choice for such a young woman, so its not so strange she still fits it, I think she has shortened it a bit now.

bertie5252003 09-27-2012 02:13 PM

I am not being mean but I really doubt she can still fit that engagement dress maybe with alterations but the photo at the time of engagement surely says it all.. IMO of course

tlklhm 09-27-2012 02:22 PM

The neckline is different.

Then I guess the dress looked better on her the first time around. Maybe because she was slimmer, dunno. :ermm:

Prinsessan 09-28-2012 08:34 AM

I have to break ranks here, I think the dress looks quite good with the blazer over it. It takes away a little of the glitteryness of the dress. The only thing I really don't like are the necklaces.

The only thing I dislike would be her choice of footwear. Everything else is all right.

Al_bina 09-29-2012 03:16 PM

There is something quite amiss about Crown Princess Mette-Marit's outfit. The make-up made her look over-baked.

SPRING 2012 READY-TO-WEAR Burberry Prorsum jumper top
Runway picture

I actually think she looks good, the jumper top colors work well, the skirt is a nice shade and matches the top. The only miss is the shoes. the necklace doesn't look out of place and I love her hair and make up.

NoorMeansLight 09-30-2012 09:25 AM

I don't care for the latest look. Besides, I find it truly inappropriate for her position.
If she worked for a fashion mag, this outfit would be just fine. But being a Crown Princess and representing your country and showing up at a public event like that... a big NO, in my opinion.

Bensgal 09-30-2012 09:37 AM

The shoes simply ruin the look for me.

casualfan 09-30-2012 10:04 AM

The dress is cute. The shoes are not. I don't think it's inappropriate.

Naggi 09-30-2012 11:59 AM

She shoes are awful. But I like the colours of the outfit very much.

kathia_sophia 09-30-2012 01:12 PM

i dont get the royals and this type of shoes/ankle boots, whatever, they are so awful and ridiculous with that dress, they dont match AT ALL!!!
ankle boots do fit jeans or tigh pants, not dresses, why MM had to follow Victoria's ugly shoes last year...

Style guru 10-03-2012 08:43 AM

Unfortunately the link doesn't work from the breakfast meeting in New York so I can't see the shoes. Love the outfit on the model.

As for her dress at another occation in New York, dark velvet with seethrough sleeves, is alright. Rather gloomy but could have been alright if it hadn't been for the SANDALS! Who wears sandals in October in New York? Well, royalty yes, but it is so ignorant of the rules of style.

Yellow and white are a nice combination. The fabric of the dress is too shiny though.

I wish she chose a different top. The one she's wearing looks a bit casual. Overall, I think Mette-Marit looks all right.

dazzling 10-11-2012 01:47 PM

Thats a lovely top but way too casual for the lunch IMO. The overall look with coat on looked nice.

bertie5252003 10-11-2012 01:57 PM

It is nice but I agree too casual for such and event the wife of the Finnish PM is very stylish though. And those shoes are my pet hate.

NoorMeansLight 10-11-2012 02:12 PM

The Day 2 outfit is quite nice, although I find the blouse a bit casual.

Frelinghighness 10-11-2012 11:05 PM

Day one navy coat, very nice cut with the horibble tights and brown pumps?? And then a maroon clutch too??
Day 2 looks ok with the jacket, black tights again, but the blouse is too tight and casual for a state visit. Almost insulting, imo.

Prinsessan 10-12-2012 04:57 AM

I liked the blouse when she wore it the first time, but for a state visit it is really inappropriate, looks far too casual.

dbarn67 10-17-2012 11:14 AM

I don't like this look for an official appearance. It's too casual and while the pieces are nice
individually they don't work together IMO. And what's up with that stunning pendent on a red string?

4Pam 10-17-2012 11:59 AM

Great outfit! She looks very nice

biboquinhas 10-17-2012 12:44 PM

She wants to look trendy but the outfit looks just horrible, she is more a classic girl not a trendy fashion one...she doesn't look good!

royalist 10-17-2012 12:59 PM

MM looks good and confortable. Love her boots!!

dazzling 10-17-2012 01:18 PM

With the jacket the look is quite fashionable/magazine simple style especially with the leopard print bag. Without the coat this is just another casual look.

bertie5252003 10-17-2012 02:33 PM

I hate boots like that ... she looks awful bar for the pretty pink jumper IMO

fortimo 10-17-2012 04:22 PM

It is not a bad outfit, very frish and youthful... But MM seems in this like an IT-girl. So I think it is not the best choice for a crownprincess.

Daria_S 10-17-2012 10:38 PM

I'm on the fence with this one. I do like how the ensemble looks with the coat, and feel that it's appropriate for a visit to a school (comfort is almost always the key when dealing with kids), but, when the coat comes off, something is missing.

Frelinghighness 10-17-2012 11:06 PM

I don't love the boots myself, but I think it's a fine look for a school visit.
