  1. She really is slim and in great shape. She has female curves and a pretty face. She usually looks splendid in casual clothing and outdoor gear. I cannot understand how a lady, with her looks and her ressources manages to dress so poorly in more formal attire. Her daywear seldom fits her properly, her style does her no favour and the items she combines often leave me wondering why. Maybe she should have become a mountaineer instead of a princess.

    1. Well, I know this is a delicate topic on this blog to talk about sizes, because you are quickly suspected of 'body-shaming'. Which it is not, it s talking about facts and talking about which style is best for a body type. Mette is not slim, from what I see in pictures, which is difficult, it is better to see a person live, she wears a German 42/44, this would be 16-18 in UK and 14-16 in USA.
      This would not be of any problem, if she got her clothes in the right size, but she usually buys one size too small. She has a sportive figure with broad shoulders and strong upper arms, most of her clothes are too tight on the shoulders and upper arms and seem terribly uncomfortable. Like the blue coat dress she wore the other day. She also has a biggger cup size. This means she probably cannot simply buy and slip in, her clothes need adjustments on the torso part. A good stylist would know this and a good tailor could fix it. Problem solved and she would look much better (and slimmer) I just don't get it why nobody tells her. Or maybe she is resistant to advice and just doesn't care. I gave up on her :-((

      I mus disagree @ Vanessa S, this outfit is not a good one. The jeans don't fit well - you can see it with the wrinkles pulling up on the thighs and seem to be a poor quality. Which is a shame. Because jeans are great. With a pair of jeans in the right cut and colour you can make any woman look good and cheat one size down. Brax is one of my favourite brands. The Fjäll Räven jacket is too short and the colour does nothing for her with her light blonde hair, it washes her out. The cut with the four front pockets is also not the best for her. There would have been many outdoor jackets that would have looked miles better.

    2. I agree, Beth. The right cut and color of denim can completely change how a woman looks in them. Mette is not big, she is the size of the average American woman. So many women get stuck in a rut, wearing the same style year after year, and resisting a necessary size up. I think she would definately benefit from a stylist.

      You are also exactly right about the color of her jacket. She would look much better in some color so she wasn't so washed out. Something else a good stylist would give her some guideance on.

      Many women would benefit from alterations, but Mette clearly needs them being different sizes on the top and bottom. Enough money is spent a royal wardrobe that they should be quality pieces and should fit well.

  2. Agree. MM excels at more casual outdoor events in dress and manner. I am also puzzled by her box-like, too-tight upper torso daywear and formal wear. Another poster mentioned that clothes should be fitted from the shoulders downward--perhaps that would help. But she and Haakon seem a good solid match together and have a lovely family, which is all good.

  4. MM is a beautiful women along with the Duchess of Cambridge and some other royal ladies, no question imo. But her fashion choices are not always on the same level as..
    Slim or not is not so important because of her nordic beauty.
