  2. Das würde ich mir zu gerne anschauen! Ich liebe es, die nun so allmählich in Vergessenheit geratene Schneiderkunst zu bewundern. Die Königin sieht toll aus. Das schlichte Kleid und diese wunderbare Kette passen so gut zu ihr. Sie ist auch ein Mensch, der mit dem Style-Gen zur Welt kam. Ich meine, wer würde sich an Quietschegelb trauen und damit super aussehen als eben diese besonderen Menschen. Vererbbar ist es leider nicht.

  3. The vintage gowns and dresses are gorgeous. Today's designers should, perhaps, incorporate some of the old design elements in today's fashions. Queen Sonja looks very nice but I'm not sure about her neckwear. Is it a necklace, a scarf, or a combination of the two?

  5. Queen Sonja always looks well put-together, whether dressy or casual. And what a lovely display of beautiful dresses from a bygone era.

    Is that flouncy yellow dress the same one that Queen Sonja loves to wear?

  6. Queen Sonja looks amazing. The sleek white dress and pale stockings and shoes, accented by a vivid pop of color at the neck, is a very striking look -- one that would be wonderful on a woman of any age. It is something I will try to remember as I attempt to grow old gracefully.

    Fascinating exhibition! Would love to see it.

  9. I like the scarf. It is unusual and gives just that right amount of color to her ivory outfit. Clothing, hairstyle, make up -- all magnificent.

  10. Queen Sonia looks magnificent in this dress and the necklace/collar is just perfect. However, I am bowled over by the dresses on display. I would love to be able to visit this exhibition. It looks amazing.

  11. I don't generally follow her a lot (though always thought she has good aesthetic sense) - but this time, WOW. Spectacularly gorgeous !!!

  12. The pictures from the staircase is quite meaningful. If you look closely you'll see a painting on the top of the stairs that Sonja really loves. The painting has 22 steps. The painting represents how Queen Sonja felt when marrying into this royal, manly and military-like institution. King Olav didn't find it necessary for her to have an office, so she just wandered around aimlessly from room to room. It took 22 years for her to get a permanent office. The 22 steps represents the years of challenges she had to fight and overcome.
    Queen Sonja made sure that an office at the palace was ready for CP Mette Marit when she married into the royal family <3

    1. Thank you for this very interesting inside view. I know, she had had a hart time at the beginning, and this story gives a rather good impression, how difficult it must have been.

    2. You’re welcome:) My sources are from an article with the Q and CP did with the VG newspaper here in Norway. I also went to see this exhibition where the guide mentioned the same story as well :)

  13. A beautiful dress, beautifully tailored. And I love the pop of colour that the necklace provides. I think she looks great here. (V.M.)
