  2. Empress Masako is a lovely lady. She and the Emperor seem very happy. Masako's gold suit is gorgeous, and her gold and pearl brooch is a perfect complement, along with her pearl necklace and earrings. Her hair is nicely styled. Happy Birthday, Empress Masako!

  4. Adorables et lumineuses photos de couleur Champagne... On peut voir la superbe broche composée de perles qu'elle a déjà portée... Bon anniversaire à Masako et que l'avenir lui apporte que de bonnes choses... Belle allure de l'empereur toujours vêtu avec classe ; la couleur de sa cravate est bien harmonisée avec celle de son épouse !!!

  8. Eyes are the window to the soul and you can see her lovely soul shining thru, along with the wonderful smile, the elegant silk suit, and jewelry to accompany her inward beauty.

  9. Lovely suit and fabric, lovely jewels, lovely hairdo, perfect smile. Very elegant, very simple, very understated (in a positive way). When we talk about Japanese royals, we don't see any outfit from some famous designer or fashion house. Yet they tend to dress very nicely and that's what I like so much about them. What a refreshment! If you look at any public engagement of some European royal lady, all that media (all media, not only fashion media like this board) talk about is who's designed the outfit. The reason why that royal lady performed this engagement is always somewhere in the background and less important.

  11. Such a beautiful and elegant woman. I find the court photos quite stiff and formal, but even so their love for each other shines through. (V.M.)

  12. I do wish they would take photos in other places, other than these odd staged photos. I am sure the wall must be nice, but it looks like a pegboard, and the daughter had her photo taken in the same 'set'. Maybe this couple will modernize the way photo's are taken and do away with the staged sets.
