  3. Silvia used to be a very beautiful woman, She has excellent dress sense and of course, she still is goodlooking, That is why I find it a pity that she looks not as good as she could.....
    I think that gray hair would look very flattering on her, as well as another hairdo. This hair colour is too harsh and the hairdo emphasizes the wrong things......

    1. A hair style change is always possible, possibly an improvement, but NOT grey hair at this stage. Her wonderful body shape is quite harmonious with this hair color, or possibly a bit lighter color. In addition she has wonderful strong hair which makes this styling quite well adapted. Grey hair would not make her look as good as she could....

    2. Yes, Lily T. - I've often wondered how Silvia would look with natural gray hair. A wall of very dark hair actually makes us older women look older (and we're really not fooling anybody with so much hair color). Sometimes Silvia looks good, other times not so much; but gray hair and lighter lipstick would soften her look even though she's got Brazilian blood. ~Laurel~

  4. Queen Silvia is beautiful. There is nothing about her appearance that is not perfect. I applaud the Queen's involvement in such an worthwhile program. We must do more to protect our children.

    1. I agree with that fully. She is such a gentle and soft-spoken lady but at the same time very passionate and determined in her efforts. She has indeed a powerful charisma.

    2. I fully agree. I hadn't thought of children being at greater risk right now due to the current situation. This conference is so important, and Silvia is a champion in her efforts.

  6. @Mary T: dark hair turns into a very nice shade. of gray usually 😉.... and gray hair often makes younger instead of older as I found out to my surprise.

    1. I would never agree that grey hair makes you look younger. Grey hair is a sign of age. Not all grey hair grows in soft or an attractive color. And it does not always grow in in an attractive way. I will say that hair being colored too dark at an advanced age does age a woman. I think it going to lighter shades of brown or adding highlights and lowlights to soften the color help immensely.

    2. The face, neck, and hands are also tell-tale signs of age; coloring the hair with lots of dark color will only accentuate the wrinkles, so women who do that are not fooling anybody. I get compliments on my gray hair, I will never color it. Hair color lightens as we age, and fighting against that isn't always a good idea especially if going to the very dark extreme.

      I admire Queens Elizabeth, Margrethe, Paola, even Princess Beatrix for staying gray(ish) or light. They have embraced their age and look appropriate. Subtle makeup as well.

    3. Thanks for this dialogue. I admit it is not a black or white matter. Moving to a lighter color than the natural one is indeed recommended, does not mean going as far as grey. To look good with grey hair you need to have everything else perfect, in short to reduce attention to hair; trendy glasses frames, or make up can help... And it is better to have smooth hair rather than frizzy. From Laurel's list, Paola and Beatrix moved to grey at a later stage. I appreciate Sonia of Norway, Sofia of Spain for their choices, and recently Caroline of Monaco seems to have revisited hers, however not as far as gray.

    4. I fully agree, MaryT. There is an art to aging gracefully.

  7. Outfit is wonderfully composed, color and shawl/pashmina, necklace and all. I am the first to promote natural gray hair, but somehow she is an exception, maybe because she has so much hair, not very typical for women her age. Another possibility is that she has, let's say, 70-80% white, the overall effect in this case is not salt-and-pepper any more but a kind of dirty-looking whitish-grey. (-Ann.)
