  1. Looks like Mette-Marit is wearing a t-shirt under a bed sheet.

    1. I do not agree, to me she took the right choice and is elegant as Princess Charlene of Monaco.

  2. It shows again that royals can use old clothes. This dress from Valentino is from 2008. Live and learn Mary, Letizia etc

    1. Letizia???? You are looking at the wrong queen. Letizia repeated his clothes more than any royal and in her wardrobe no Haute Couture clothing.

    2. You make me laugh, no one reuses her clothes more then MM. Using a outfit 2-3 times the year it is bought and then never again in nothing to salut. When Letizia comes in a 10 year old outfit as MM does all the time, she will get cred not before. No haute couture? Are you kidding? Her favorits designers are Felipe Verla, Carolina Herrera and Nina Ricci.

    3. Anon 8:53: Felipe Varela, Carolina Herrera and Nina Ricci are not haute couture designers (though Nina Ricci has been in the past). This is reflected in the price of their clothing, which is lower than that of haute couture designers. Letizia is a great supporter of her local, lower- priced “couture” designers – I have seen some Hugo Boss designs she has worn on the rack in my city’s main department store; I am not sure whether Letizia has ever worn haute couture, even for gowns.
      Some of the younger royals wear haute couture occasionally e.g. Camilla, Mathilde, Mary, Victoria, Maxima; and others wear it more regularly e.g. the Monaco royals, Sheikha Mozah, Rania, Lalla Salma --and Mette-Marit.

    4. Check the dresses from the designers and what is written about them. All are hc designers. Stop the nonsense. Of course she wear hc. Are you kidding how can you be a Queen go to royal weddings, birthdays, state visit and not wear hc. Google her wardrobe and you'll get an update!

    5. Anon 00:01: People easily confuse the two - and some designers deliberately fail to clarify the point-- but there are major differences between couture and haute couture, not the least of which is price.

    6. Both Mary and Letizia wear clothing repeatedly, and both Mary and Letizia have clothing altered to make it look different. Both have had gowns altered two maybe three times to change the look of a gown. Sometimes the alterations look great, sometimes they looked better before they were altered.

      Sure they buy new clothing, but they mix the new in with their existing pieces, and they also wear gowns or outfits with different accessories to give their clothing a whole new look.

      Most of the Royals do.

    7. As Hello wrote after the Us tour: and her recent tour of the United States, where she showed off a series of glam Haute couture pieces from one of her favorite designers, Felipe Varela.
      Don't know what you call these dresses, but the rest of the world Calis it HC:

      you need to learn to google, alle over the web included pages from the designers, newspapers, fashion pages these designers are HC. Stop the nonsense. You can protest as much you like, but as long as L comes in special custom made dresses it is called HC. The diffrence is that only a few designers are invited to be a part of Chambre syndicale de la haute couture, it doesn't mean they don't make them.

    8. Arrêtez-vous avec vos bêtises. Felipe Varela n'est pas et n'a jamais été Haute Couture. Il fait des vêtements prêt-à-porter, très bien faits et chic, mais prêt-à-porter, comme les prix observés dans son site Web.

    9. You stop the nonsense as long as you make custom fitted dresses special to someone it's HC. Strange that the rest of the world included newspapers, tv, fashion magazines and others writes that he makes HC, but of course you ladys now more the them tha...

    10. Thanks Anon 23:02. Anon 00:01, 18:05 and 14:18: Custom-made gowns are available from local high-end couture designers in every western country in the world. Just because a gown is custom-made, does not make it haute couture.
      I would not take anything written about fashion in Hello or OK magazine as having authority. I very much doubt that the so-called "fashion" writers in these magazines have had any fashion education. The same applies to fashion articles in most online or print publications; and of course, the majority of fashion blogs.
      There are only a few big-name, internationally-respected journalists (in the English-speaking world, at any rate) who write exclusively about high-end fashion. These writers sit front row at every single important fashion show. What they do is a fulltime job, and all are employed by internationally esteemed publications, usually specialist fashion magazines - see below for examples. http://www.vogue.com.au/fashion/fashion+shows/haute+couture?adkit_ref=/fashion/fashionShows/hauteCouture
      http://www.businessoffashion.com/fashion-week/
      http://www.fashiontimes.com/articles/20069/20150415/ulyana-sergeenko-ilja-show-couture-paris-july.htm this article describes the induction of a Russian couture designer into the haute couture fraternity earlier this year 2015.
      If you want to dismiss reputable sources, while at the same time upholding gossip magazines, TV reporters etc as repositories of fashion wisdom, that is of course your prerogative. But I highly recommend that you don’t ignore the world’s “fashion bibles”. As well as being reliable, they are hugely interesting and informative.
      And it would be much nicer if you could put your view more politely in future. I am sure you are able to express your disagreement, without describing my comments 3 times in a row as “nonsense”. There is absolutely no need to for rudeness.

    11. Yes what doesn't you say to show how one of the biggest shoppers in the royal world just buy non excpensive clothes...yeah right! It's funny that he makes custom fitted hc dresses to L and you still can pretend she doesn't wear hc. It makes me laugh. Call him what you want, but since both Elle and Vouge has called him a HC designer before in their magazine, I 'll go for that, not what you to ladys mean.
