  1. Photo #1 - dress is okay.
    Photo #2 - whoa, that see-through skirt is not a good look for a funeral.
    Photo #3 - yikes.
    Photo #4 - maybe Mette-Marit's dress wasn't that bad after all.

  2. Again a sad occasion for the CPss. Her friend was not very old. MM wears a nice dress.

  3. A see-through dress at a funeral? For shame!In any case, that dress won't look nice anywhere, for any occasion.

      I totally agree, Lizzie, a sea-through dress, and mini by that, are totally unsuitable, for a funeral. MM was always dressed elegant, and proper, in the past, at funerals

    2. Agree with both of you. The dress itself looks very nice. If it only had a proper, longer lining... That could've made the dress more appropriate.

  4. I like CP Mette-Marit so much but have to agree that it’s not a good dress for a funeral.

  5. From a scandinavian. Nothing wrong with dress. MM dresses like everybody else here in our part of the world. She have a big heart. She care about the little man and those who struggle. She dresses nice and still she gets criticized no matter what. It's embarrassing to see who mean people can be on this blog.

    1. As this is a fashion blog, all the opinions about fashion are allowed. No one has attacked MM or put in doubt her good heart. In fact, it's completely posible to be a wonderful person with no sense of fashion. In this sad occasion, her dress is a disaster.

    2. Anon 9:52pm - We all have different opinions, views, likes, dislikes; and we are not all Scandinavians, so our cultural perspective is different. /Julie/

    3. I agree with the original comment; the standard of criticism in these comments tends to leave a lot to be desired. The most judgmental commenters do not seem to understand how appalling their criticism can come across. This is the case even when the comment is strictly fashion related. /AA/

    4. From one scandinavian to another - I totally agree. I could use this dress at a funeral.

      I know this is a little off topic, but I think people should know what's considered appropriate in a country before they judge. I come from a country with no hat/fascinator-culture (except for the royal family) and I think that the british royals wear lots of ridiculous stuff on their heads. I don't get it, but I understand that it's a thing there so I respect it and keep my mouth shut.
      I've been reading this blog for some while now and I've observed that some people like to criticize the Norwegian royal women whenever they're wearing black tights during wintertime. If they observed with Norwegian eyes they wouldn't have reacted at all, because it's even normal here to wear wool tights under pants here whenever it's cold. Also, Oslo tends to be extra chilly during the winter because of the cold (obvi) and then a freezing wind added on top of that which makes it ten times worse. So don't criticize our tights.

    5. As a scandinavians I must say, this is not a suitable dress to a funeral.

    6. Maria can hide behind this is a fashion blog, but strangely enough where MM get criticized for her dark tights other get not. Where MM get criticized for her length on her coat is to short vs her dress others get not. Where MM get criticized that her sleeves are to right others get not. Example MM get criticized for her long waistcoat, but Mary get praised for hers. So give us a break. We are not blind. And I have been in funerals where some woman are dressed like MM are here, som have pants and some have Jeans. So completely agree with the others here.

  6. If you knew the artist you would not judge MM's dress for being unsuitable!
    Always see fashion in context, please!

  7. It is obvious from the photos that "everybody else" in Scandinavia does not dress the way Mette-Marit chose to dress on this occasion. Please don't make the mistake of calling people "mean" for commenting about fashion on a fashion blog. Most of the people here admire this lovely and warm-hearted Crown Princess, and praise her fashion choices when we think they do justice to her beauty and position. That does not oblige us to praise every outfit she wears, or refrain from comment if something seems inappropriate.

  8. It’s an eyelet dress with a lining. It’s not sheer. She is attending the funeral of a friend. Judging M.M.’s dress at funeral is frankly tacky.

    1. The lining of the skirt is too short

    2. And the top os too tight.

    3. Maria: Mette-Marit's dresses are usually too tight on top (same with Maxima and Mathilde) I would find it quite uncomfortable. /Julie/

  9. These days you can hear rockmusic on funerals, some people would like to be buried in colorful coffins and some people want no mourning clothes to be worn. So what‘s wrong with the dress of Mette-Marit? She‘s wearing black - like the others. Obviously there was no other dress code.

  10. I like her dress, even for a funeral, just because part of her thigh was seen, does not mean anything, it was a lovely dress.

  11. I don´t like the see-through-thing either and agree about the missing length. That comes across vainly imho, sorry.

  12. I love her dress and would love to know the brand to buy it myself. Only he shorter lining is mini. If she wore a slip or had a longer liner sewn in, it wouldn’t be a mini dress. The eyelet goes to the middle of her knee. I think the dress is appropriate for the funeral of a rockstar.
