  1. Well, why were a skirt...

  2. I assume she wore pumps for the indoor part of the event and opted for sneakers only for the outdoor walk in unpaved areas, but still, the sneakers strike me as a very unfortunate choice. Either go for other types of flat shoes that don´t clash with the elegant flared skirt (i.e. ballerinas or mokkasins, just like the other ladies wore), or choose a simple sheath dress that works with both pumps and sportier shoes. Some dresses can be styled both elegant and casual, but this skirt cannot, I´m afraid.
    Also, I find the small brown patch on the skirt´s waistline very distracting. A fashion designer surely must think of things like that when cutting up the fabric?

  3. H&M is simple not a flagship for Sweden. No good cuts and very mediocre quality. This t-shirt is a real disaster.

  4. I've always thought that Oscar favored his father, but in the first photo here, it is clear that Oscar favors his mother very much too.

  5. The makeup amd the genuine smile are perfection. This T-Shirt is a miss, it is illfitting, because there is no form, it is just hanging on her. She can do sooo much better.

    1. Geweldig, niet waar. Sneakers wanneer je in je vrije tijd een poosje in een museum gaat rondlopen en mooie pumps bij het officiële gedeelte van je bezoek. Beide passen prima bij haar outfit.

    2. Ik heb de foto's voor de tweede keer bekeken: niet te geloven wat een wansmaak!

  7. Globally not good. Although sneakers are now accepted more or less in all circumstances. See the website of many fashion designers. I agree with Monty, personally I buy very very rarely at H&M.

  8. The outfit might just have passed muster if it were not for the shoes. Totally wrong with the skirt. Agree with Vanessa that if she needed to wear flats/trainers for the visit, she should have chosen a different outfit. Love the first photo where she seems to be glowering at her own reflection :-)

  9. Love the skirt not so much the top. Her smile is everything.

  10. Yes, from pics on another forum, I think she did wear blue heels for the seminar. They helped the skirt look a bit better. How unfortunate that she chose such large, clunky sneakers for walking about and the continual, unflattering, severe hairstyle make the whole a real miss for me.

  11. Hilfe! Vergiss Tina Törnquist, Victoria!
    Wie kann man nur diese 3 Modeteile miteinander kombinieren?

  12. I do like her...also CP Mary from Denmark wore they sneakers during their official visit in Rome

  13. Well at least she's not wearing another suit. But then goes and wears an equally as unstylish outfit.
    I really wonder who is styling her? They should be fired.
    There's something about Victoria that just looks so manly.
    Even her posture in picture 9 is masculine.
    And this is a recent change. A few years ago she looked and dressed a lot more feminine.

    1. I prefer her with the suits. They are contempory style, this outfit far less. This is unattractive for her.

  14. OMG a disaster from head to toes. She needs help.

  15. Obviously none of those criticizing have problems with their feet or knees. As one who deals with both, I often HAVE to change into sneakers or I'd be in a wheelchair for weeks recovering from one walk. Maybe it was just a few minutes. She obviously doesn't make her outward appearance the focus of her job. She does a wonderful job with those she is interacting with. Let's try to focus a little more on meaningful things & not just her looks.

    1. Since this is a fashion blog, I am afraid you may be complaining to the wrong crowd. The problem with her sneakers is that she made a very poor choice. Of all the millions of shoes in the world that are flat and comfortable, she chose her actual athletic shoes. To successfully wear sneakers with a dress or skirt, they need to be a little more visually attractive and sleek, a lot less athletic and clunky. Victoria can afford to dress well and get some guidance if she can't do it herself. She looks like she has given up and really doesn't care. That was not always the case. It doesn't have to cost more to dress in a flattering way. I think the way she presents herself can be a distraction to her good work.

    2. This website has fashion in the title, not royal interaction. While many can appreciate the engagements carried out, this is also about fashion.

      Delete
    3. ...as this is a fashion blog, then we comment on royals style choices.
      This footwear was not good. Period. You can have very comfortable flats, and not get any foot problems from wearing them.
      To choose Adidas with this skirt...what was she thinking?
      This skirt combined with those sneakers made her look dumpy. Add her usual flat hairstyle. Meh, meh, meh.

    4. Well said, chardonn8r, many times the way any royal presents him or herself can be a distraction to their good work.

  16. The very first photo of Victoria is one of the best photos ever .

  17. tevreden met de sneakers, het is mode, waarom moet zij altijd hoge hakken aan dat kan pijnljk zijn.

    1. I do not agree!! More young and fresh in trainers....Nobody wears those heels nowadays, it is a totally nonsense....and very bad for the healh....stop the nonsense!!

    2. What kind of shoes? That's what women wear nowadays, a modern woman as the other ones. Not a show..

    3. Sneakers are the new high heels - I am glad for it!

    5. There is time and place to wear high heels and time and place to wear trainers.

  19. 1. Crossover-Dressing ist zur Zeit eine Moderichtung. Ich mag's und finde den Look mit den Sneakers der guten Stella frisch und modern. Mit den Pumps wirkt es irgendwie altbacken.
    2. Wer schon einmal auf der Akropolis war, weiß, warum die KP Sneakers trägt.
    3. Victoria trägt meist Röcke oder Kleider, wenn sie in offizieller Funktion unterwegs ist (das ist dem royalen Protokoll geschuldet). Ich gehe davon aus, dass der enge Zeitplan einfach keine Zeit fürs Umkleiden erlaubte.
    4. Farben, Accessoires harmonieren. Der Rock ist aus der Conscious Linie von H&M. Das Modeunternehmen versucht wenigstens, andere Wege zu gehen. Das braucht Zeit.
    5. Nein, Victoria benötigt keine Stylistin, sie weiß sehr gut, was für ihr Leben und ihre Rolle passt. Ich glaube, sie setzt andere Prioritäten als ein Modeopfer. Und genau das gefällt mir so an ihr.

  20. I must be the only one that loves the whole look. When I saw the tennis shoes I nearly cheered. Finally, a princess who bucks ridiculous expectations and dresses for comfort during engagements! Alas, only partly true. Just think what they'd do for women's feet if royalty wore tennis shoes. I happen to think tennis shoes look good w everything except evening gowns, but I'm American.

    1. In Europe women wear them also, only older ones can say that nonsense about shoes...In fact I never see heels, imagine countries as Holland, Germany, Austria where people ride bicycles every day...

    2. There is a time and a place to slip on sneakers. For the walking tour, it makes sense. She just made a poor choice in the type of sneakers she chose. It doesn't sound like you noticed that she wore blue pumps for the seminar. I am American as well, and would never wear sneakers everything. There is an appropriate, comfortable shoe for every foot. You also get what you pay for. I am not talking about paying for a designer shoe just to have the name, but better shoes typically cost more money. It is the same with sneakers. I am a firm believer in dressing for the occasion.

    3. I do, I do, I do agree with Chardonn8r !

  21. I agree wwith analysis of anonym 3.13. Victoria has other priorities than paying large attention to her clothing style.

  22. No. Just no.

  23. Well done Chardonn8r for your sensible take on this. Flat shoes CAN look smart but you generally need to make more of an effort than with a trusty and reliable, if sometimes dull, pair of court shoes. I also agree with Anon 1.16 that the outfit is improved with smart shoes. You don't need towering stilettos--I personally cannot manage anything like 4 inch heels anymore-- but even a low heel looks smarter than a trainer and can be really comfortable.

  24. Her choice of shoes shows her to be a sensible and wise woman. Those "athletic" sneakers (aren't all sneakers kind of athletic?) are probably the most comfortable choice for a walk among the ruins etc. Furthermore, didn't she break her ankle a couple of years ago? That may have her with left a chronic ankle problem. Ballerina-like flat shoes may not have enough shock absorbtion, either. And to my eye, these sneakers don't look that bad at all, they look playful and fun. She may not have had enough time to change her whole attire in between the events, but great that she didn't have to walk in her heels the whole day through!

    1. That's right, people here have not visited Athens....and the slopes, the Acropolis is very high..the heat, humidity for a Scandinavian, her make-up has melted...

  25. Fashion, yes but
    Victoria differs from the other (crown)princesses in one remarkable aspect: she is the only crown princess in her generation who will be the reigning monarch. She is expected to be more than just a fashion victim. For the other crown princesses (future queen CONSORTS) bearing children and dressing fashionably can be considered as being enough, but for a reigning queen there are also other requirements. Victoria knows that and chooses her way differently from the others.

  26. I completely agree. CPV is my favorite blood-royal by far because of the qualities you articulate so well, Anon.

    Having visited this very site at this time last year I can attest that there is nothing wrong with CPV's attire. The heat and humidity can be actually fatal for those unaccustomed; Athens is utterly urban with severe air quality problems among other issues. This isn't a breezey Greek island! And I like the shirt. Fresh but cut so as not to wilt or cling.

    Greece deserves a little love. Hopefully CPV can help!

  27. The sneakers are OK, but not with that skirt, way too matron-like.
