  1. I love MM

    But too many shades of purple going on here. I do love that coat. Not a fan of the dress with the up to the neck tied bow. Seems all the ladies are wearing this now. Anyway to me this is too much going on in one look.

  2. It's always a pleasure to see Princess Astrid, Mrs. Ferner. The lady surely loves colour in her clothes and I'm not going to blame her for it. Princess Mette-Marit looks lovely in lilac

  3. Agree with Diane to much going on here. Don't have a problem with the purple theme as we know fashion loves matchy matchy. Like that she still uses her 10 year old Alberta Ferretti coat and almost 10 year old Prada bag, she obviously loves this bag since she uses it a lot. Goes well with her Prada shoes. A lesson to be learned to some of the others you don't have to buy a new outfit every time. So to the pièce de résistance the dress. This dress is difficult to judge since we don't see a lot of it. It could be great on the other hand I have now idea why these bow tie dresses/shirts are so popular. I'm not a fan. This outfit would have worked perfectly with a classic simpel pencil dress. BUT I love love the hat.

  4. I agree with you Diane and Louise. All the pieces are nice and MM is well coiffed of course but it's just too much. This dress needs a solid colour coat or the coat needs a simpler pencil dress. I think nude/natural tan tights could improve the look (the coat is just of a too light lilac for these "heavy" thick aubergine tights).
    But she wears a hat and I so would hug her for that :)
    Now that you say I too fail to understand the sudden madness about bow/tie neck clothes everywhere. It's really not the style that suits a lot of ladies. Specially the dresses that have such high closure and small ties. The bigger, dramatic bows somehow work better in my opinion.

  5. I think Mette-Marit is beautiful, however this ensemble is really bad. The coat is beautiful (although too intricate for my taste) but all that purple together is just too much. The coast looked lovely when worn the first time, simple and elegant, not so fussy (even with the feather fascinator).

  6. Fussy-bowed dress might have been OK without the elaborate coat. The coat would have been OK if she had closed it over the dress. Together--too much. Colored tights are very 80s, a look I'm not thrilled to see return. But the actual colors are nice on MM.

  7. Lo siento por M-M, pero no se puede usar un abrigo de hace 10 años cuando se tienen 2 tallas más que antes. Las mangas le estallan y los bordes se quedan a 15 cm de distancia. El vestido morado es feo, lo mismo que las media opacas. La cosa que lleva en la cabeza es, sencillamente, ridícula. Fracaso total.

  8. I'm inclined to agree that there is a lot going on with Crown Princess Mette-Marit's outfit, but I actually think she's pulling it off. It helps the the color is gorgeous on her. (I wonder if purple is a favorite of hers, as - correct me if I'm wrong - the only colored stone tiara she wears is amethyst.)

  9. Miss pictures from the castle dinner in the evening. By the way, I like the coat. Very nice to see a picture where our royal princess Astrid is participating!
