  3. Princess in pink is my favourite, her dress more modern. I wish they would did have to coordinate so much with the unused gloves, fans, pearls pearls, same posture, holding their hands the same way (likes soldiers). Makes them look so rehearsed, its unrealistic. 👯😕

  5. The tailoring and detail of Princess Kiko's dress are just gorgeous. Gotta give her my "best dressed", but they all are stunningly attired. The ladies' pastel hues make this balcony appearance a spring bouquet.

    1. Yes, luckily one has her pony fringes on the one side and one on the other!
      (Nobody freak out, please, that was a joke.)

    2. They're wearing the exact same jewelry too.
      It's so sad and odd that they're not allowed to have their own individual style.

    1. No, she did not attend any of the official ceremonies. Only adults do. The young lady wearing the pink gown is Princess Kako of Akishino, the younger daughter of the crown princely couple. Also the second in line to the throne, Prince Hisahito of Akishino did not attend, as he is only twelve years old now.

  8. The new Empress Masako looks stunning. A beautiful dress it shines like her face today.May she be happy, so she'll be able to do her job. All the ladies look great.

  9. The young Akishino Princesses look als she were dressed in armor. It's a pity we don't get to see Princess Takamado better; that lady always manages to smooth the protocolary rigidity mantaining the required formality.

  10. All the dresses are bespoken and made from exquisite material. So rare these days. And, because I love the 60ies style it is fine with me.
