Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden In Vintage Nina Ricci – 2018 Nobel Prize Banquet

Fashion Blogger Catherine Kallon feature Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden In Vintage Nina Ricci - 2018 Nobel Prize Banquet

Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden attended the Nobel Prize Banquet at City Hall on Monday (December 10) in Stockholm, Sweden.

The royal wore a beautiful vintage 1995 Nina Ricci ball gown, which paid a very special tribute to her mother Queen Silvia, who wore the same dress to the ceremony back in 1995.

If ever a gown deserved a re-run, it was this one. Just look at the detailing on the back.

Princess Victoria teamed her look with a voluminous updo, similar again to her mother’s original look, and the E. Wolff & Co. ‘Forget-Me-Not’ Connaught Tiara.

The only real difference is that Princess Victoria didn’t wear a necklace.

    *gasp* A royal in a tube top, baring her shoulders like her mother before her. Where are the protocol police?!

    On a less sarcastic note, I honestly wondered if that was a tube top at first glance of the daughter . I see it isn’t but I cannot overcome that first impression. I’ll pass.

    Is there a category of “best vintage look” in the BDOTY poll? I can’t remember if there is one, but I know that this dress would certainly earn a spot there.

    I find it amazing that the colours are such a soft palette and yet so striking.

    Also, not a fan of taffeta, but it so happens sometimes that the material, the design, the wearer and the occasion come together so perfectly that it’s like an epiphany: “oh, so that’s what taffeta is all about. I get it now.”

      The red dress is stunning! Night 2 is smaller and has fewer photographers so I’m not sure if Getty will have anything. Regardless I’d love to know who designed it if anyone knows.

    The Nobels festivities were clearly a success yesterday! All the ladies looked wonderful and there’s another gala dinner (with tiaras!) tonight in Sweden for the Nobels Laureates!

    I also really loved the Crown princess of Norway (Mette-Merit I think?) in Fendi and Andrew GN, she was so chic too!

    I love that she was paying homage to her mother

    Knowing the history I like the look a whole lot more.

      +1 beautiful tribute

    Oh my, I know it’s huge and taffetta and all but I just love it. It just screams „princess” in such a classic, vintage way. The colours are beautiful and unique and the back is stunning. It’s also very sweet when you look at the comparison since the Queen and the Princess look so alike – the resemblance would be even more striking if you chose the pic of Victoria walking down the stairs as the main one.

    She looks stunning.
