  1. She looks good here in all three outfits. The white dress, albeit a bit girly, is flattering her.

    1. I agree. I like how she has honored her hosts by wearing their scarfs. Appears to be a good visit.

  2. The white dress is rather nice and seems to fit her well. Lace, but with of edge.
    Is that a national costume in the last photo? Sometimes visiting royals try to reference the national clothing of their host country. M-M did the opposite!

    1. At the last photo she is at a reception in the Norwegian embassy and is wearing a Norwegian bunad. Very appropriate. She have honoured Ethiopia every day with color, dress, scarfs and jewlery. So give her a break!

  3. The lace dress is nice. It has a modern twist and it fits her well. Again struck with how much better MM looks in casual outdoor clothes in first pictures. She seems to love being outside.

  4. The second picture is strange, with Mette-Marit dressed so casual and Haakon having a suit on. But on the other hand I am not really sure wether his suit is casual or formal.

  5. El primer conjunto no me gusta. Mezclar lunares, rayas y blonda no es buena idea. El segundo es bonito pero me parece infantil en ella. El tercero es un traje regional y es muy bonito
