Royal Wedding Guests

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.

Inauguration Of King Willem Alexander of the Netherlands Party

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.

Inauguration Of King Willem Alexander of the Netherlands

Royals 1

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

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.

Luxembourg Royal Wedding Gala Dinner Guests

Here are some more looks from the gala dinner which took place prior to the royal wedding of Prince Guillaume of Luxembourg and Stephanie de Lannoy at the Grand-ducal Palace in Luxembourg on Friday.

Princess Marie-Chantal of Greece: She looked stunning wearing a gorgeous Elie Saab Fall 2012 Couture gold embroidered tulle gown. But as you know I’m not a fan of mixing metals, so the tiara works against this look for me.

Princess Mette-Marit of Norway: Returning to her best, Princess Mette-Marit of Norway looked beautiful wearing a red Emilio Pucci gown with embellished details and a flowing chiffon skirt. Everything from the accessories to the rouge lip colour works for me on this occasion.Read More…

Crown Princess Mette-Marit of Norway In Emilio Pucci – Gala Dinner For Queen Margrethe II of Denmark

Crown Princess Mette-Marit of Norway attended a gala dinner last week to celebrate Queen Margrethe II of Denmark’s 40 years on the throne at Christiansborg Palace Chapel in Copenhagen, Denmark.

She is regarded as one of the most stylish royals.

On this occasion she wore a custom Emilio Pucci short-sleeve gown which was inspired by the Spring 2012 two-piece look worn by Gwyneth Paltrow at the 2011 Emmy Awards.

Her embroidered white dress with royal official effects was styled with a bejewelled headband instead of an over-the-top tiara like the other royals who attended this event, proving that she is very much a modern royal.

Monaco Royal Wedding Guests

Naomi Campbell wore a one shoulder Alexander McQueen ombre floral embroidered dress to the Royal Wedding of Prince Albert II of Monaco and Princess Charlene of Monaco at the Prince’s Palace of Monaco.

She accessorized with an matching fringed shawl, an Alexander McQueen skull clutch and a peach coloured fascinator.

I was starting to tire of seeing fascinators as we’ve had an overload of them since the British royal wedding, but I love how this one complements the floral embroidered and the bottom half of her McQueen gown.
