Crown Princess Mette-Marit of Norway In H&M Conscious Collection - amfAR Inspiration Gala New York 2014

HRH Crown Princess Mette-Marit of Norway attended the amfAR Inspiration Gala New York 2014 held at The Plaza Hotel on Tuesday (June 10) in New York City.

She wore a black floral-patterned sleeveless dress with a high-low hem from H&M’s Conscious Collection, styled with nude pumps and a hot-pink clutch for a pop of colour.

You may remember that this isn’t the first time we’ve seen this dress; both Emmy Rossum and Spanish actress Leticia Dolera have also taken this frock for a spin on the red carpet.

Princess Mette-Marit also isn’t the first royal to don this collection; Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden has too.

Royal Wedding Guests 1

There were many more guests who attended the wedding of Princess Madeleine of Sweden and Christopher O’Neill this afternoon in Stockholm, Sweden.

Princess Mette-Marit of Norway: The princess was my favourite of the guests, looking divine wearing a soft pastel-blue Emilio Pucci tiered lace gown with a delicate cape. The look was styled with a matching clutch and amethyst tiara.

Princess Charlene of Monaco: The princess, who attended the ceremony without her husband Prince Albert, wore another Akris gown during this royal celebration. On this occasion she wore a strapless ruched mocha coloured peplum gown which she styled with a chiffon shawl draped over her shoulder while carrying a crocodile clutch in the same mocha hue.

Royals Party

Many other royals joined Sheikha Mozah bint Nasser Al Missned of Qatar to watch the water pageant to celebrate the inauguration of King Willem-Alexander of the Netherlands after the abdication of his mother Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands in Amsterdam, Netherlands.

Princess Mabel of Orange-Nassau: The princess was three for three when it came to her designer of choice: Viktor & Rolf. Her dual-colour white-and-pink gown from the designers’ Spring 2013 collection featured yet another bow, this time at the waist. If this dress feels familiar, it’s because US Marie Claire editor Zanna Roberts Rassi wore it during E’s pre-Oscar red carpet coverage.

Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden: Aside from her first Elie Saab purple number, the princess has stuck to a fairly neutral colour palette. On this occasion, she added a cropped fur jacket to a dazzling gold gown styled with metallic-gold pumps and a matching clutch.

Crown Princess Mary of Denmark: Standing out in red, the princess wore a red Jesper Høvring long-sleeved gown with a beautiful tiered skirt. Ruby Parure earrings and a bouffant updo completed her look. This gown is a repeat; the princess first wore it during her wedding celebrations back in 2012.

Crown Princess Mette-Marit of Norway: A mint-green gown capped Princess Mette-Marit’s trio of looks this week. The Valentino gown was clearly the stand-out piece, but I prefer her Giambattista Valli and this ethereal gown.

There was yet more fashion to be had from our favourite royals, who joined Sheikha Mozah bint Nasser al Missned at the inauguration of King Willem-Alexander of the Netherlands yesterday afternoon.

Crown Princess Mette-Marit of Norway: Valentino would be considered one of Crown Princess Mette-Marit’s favourite designers, so I was not surprised to see her don one of their looks for this festivity. Her Fall 2013 white-and-blue gown featuring beaded embroidery, which was presented as a mini dress, was decorated with royal family orders and accessorized with another delightfully subtle tiara featuring ivory-and-blue lace floral accents.

Crown Princess Mary of Denmark: My queen opted for a Charlotte Lynggaard white silk dress with a floral print on the skirt and waist, which she styled with the same Prada pumps and Bottega Veneta clutch. On this occasion, she added a blue netted fascinator instead of the more traditional tiara. While this might be considered fairly laidback, she is the epitome of elegance.

Queen Beatrix Of The Netherlands Abdication State Dinner

Many more royals took to the red carpet at Amsterdam’s Rijksmuseum for the dinner thrown by Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands to celebrate her abdication and her son’s investiture yesterday evening.

Crown Princess Mary of Denmark: As always, my heart did flutter when I saw Mary on the red carpet.
Looking nothing short of spectacular and every inch a modern princess, she wore a Birgit Hallstein gown, a designer she has worn a few times before. Her off-the-shoulder blush gown with an embellished bodice was accented with a satin waistband, with a Bottega Veneta clutch, Prada pumps and her wedding tiara completing her look.

Princess Mette-Marit of Norway: While this gorgeous floral confection didn’t take to the runway, the pretty print is distinctive of the Giambattista Valli Spring 2013 collection. I really love the simplicity of this look, as much as the more showy gowns at this event. Even her tiara was slightly modest compared to the others.
