  1. The one thing about the Japanese royal women is they all look so dignified. And their clothing is exquisite. I admire that they are staying true to their culture and traditions and are resisting attempts to look like everyone else.

  3. Masakó really branched out or has never been more alive since she has become the empress. What a lovely and classy woman. Her husband always supported her and it shows. She looks wonderful in her kimono.

  9. Everyone looks great but just once I'd like to see THE MEN dress in traditional clothing for these types of events. I admire the King and Queen of Bhutan. They *both* show up in traditional dress.

  14. I have just read all the comments and when I came to the end, I felt very peaceful. No criticism, no suggestions, only praise and admiration. This dignified couple and its court seem to offer inspiration and I very much hope to see even more of them.
