  1. Deux styles différents.. La reine a beaucoup d'allure dans cette robe de couleur prune mais des collants/bas de couleur grise très claire seraient plus élégants ; elle peut être portée avec n'importe quelle autre teinte.... Collier et bracelet bien assortis !

    1. I like very much the 7/8 trousers when they are tight, not flattering when wide and here they are a bit too long. So no ban but good choices.

    2. I think it's low to comment on the fashion of non-royals. We're here for royal fashion, so we should stick to that.

      Totally agreed with MaryT.
      7/8 trousers look nice with high heels décolletés.

  6. white stockings? short pants? both ladies know better. However, the Queen looks lovely as usual, except for those white things on her legs.

    1. They are not white they are grey/light black. This is the fashion our old Queens follow. We see these light pantyhose on Margrethe, Silvia and Elizabeth too. We see this all the time, nothing new here. I have even seen Mathilde in these light one.

  7. Q Sonja's legs! This is a lovely outfit, until the distraction of the color of her stockings. She really needed to stick with a nude leg. The recipient of the award is a prime example of how clothes can make your body look better or worse. Her clothes are making her look so much bigger than she is. Her shirt is too big, and those pants! They are too big and have no shape. She could be tiny under that sack of fabric. I would love to see what she would look like in clothes that were a good fit for her body, and a nice hair style.

    1. I agree! Elegant and beautiful as always and she is looking much younger than her age.
