  1. Not a big fan of this outfit but she looks attentive.

    1. Agreed. Something in the background appeared to be a gray bow in the 2nd pic. Glad she didn't make that choice with a cheerful dress.

    2. There is a grey bow in the second pic, but it's not a mirror of victorias dress, it's a bow on a (guess) window, door, cupboard door or something like that.

      I like the dress, it's not a woooow-outfit but it looks fresh and nice and I like the idea of wearing these old dresses, because they are still 'up to date' and it's good for the environment

  2. She certainly stands out. A bit too flashy.

  3. She is a splash of color in an otherwise drab room. Good for her!

  4. Would love to see the whole outfit. Maybe more pics will come later. It certainly is bright and makes her stand out.

  6. I actually really like the dress! Nice with colour, it's summer after all. She really does look like she's genuinely interested and invested in these environment and ocean problems. Many in the field do say that she has very big knowledge and interest too. Good for her!

  7. That´s way too 80s for me - the broad diagonal stripes, the shoulder/sleeve shape, the neon pink, and she even appears to have shoulder pads. None of this is good. The whole thing is probably tea-length on top of it all which is the least flattering length for any woman. The pink may be fresh and I´m all for colour, but I agree with those saying that it´s not really suitable for the conference setting she´s in, and this particular colour combination makes me think of peppermint or toothpaste or a huge concrete mixer. Totally random, i know, and it may just be me, but I have no love for this outfit.

    1. Yes the dress looks very retro …… and I think it is one of Queen Silvias from the 80s she has borrowed!

    2. I think some of the 80s is back In fashion, isn't it? I see my young collegues wearing clothes like that.

  8. Vanessa, do you think she would look much better with open hair? At this moment the dress looks a bit "brutal", but with her feminine, full hair??? ;)
    But it's nice, that she looks what her Mum has to share in her closets...

    1. Good question. Thinking about it, I would say that normally I´d be all for her hair open, at least sometimes, I think it would soften her features immensly and look very attractive on her. In this particular case though, I think it wouldn´t make me like the dress any better. Instead, it may in fact make it look even more out of place because her hair style is the only part of her look that says business which I think is right for this work meeting. The dress, apart from being ugly to my eyes (of 2017), is a casual dress best suited for a private sommer outing or something, not for a crown princess attending an international business conference. But again, that´s strictly my opinion.

  9. Too bad the front wasn't a solid pink like the back.

  10. I think she was making a statement of the importance of recyling for the evnironmental conference she was attending. But the dress appears to gap at bit at the back, but she loooks good in the colour.

  11. It would be better if the stripes were blue and white, like the ocean. The pink is a bit too bright and doesn't seem to fit her well.

  12. Her mother wears the same dress on a photo when Madeleine is about 1 year, which means the dress is 34 years old.

  13. Very important and 'hot' subject/topic of the Conference that she attended.... Plastics in the seas/oceans!

    1. Terri, the theme is on the table since decades! And nothing has changed. Just worse. Talking and money wasting... - By the way; her Mum looked better in that dress in 1984 than Victoria. The CP should have worn her hair like her mother on that black-white photo too.

  14. I was thinking as I scrolled down that Victoria looked well groomed, but that I didn't like the dress, it looked like something from the 80's and sure enough, it is!
