Princess Madeleine lights up the night…

….from here to Mars, probably.


February 7, 2019: Princess Madeleine of Sweden attended a fundraising dinner held for the benefit of The World Childhood Foundation. King Carl XVI Gustaf, Queen Silvia, and Prince Carl Philip were also in attendance.

It’s almost as if she woke up and decided that she would teach a course in royal glamour, isn’t it? Her more recent efforts have tended to the flowy and filmy end of the spectrum, so much so that I was concerned she had decided to dress out of Auntie ZsaZsa Gabor’s closet forever. But tonight the old, sequiny, shiny and utterly gorgeous Maddie returned, laid it down, and walked right over it. Bravo.

The slit does make me squint a bit. It’s not hanging in an entirely flattering way, but it’s a small detail in such a sea of glamour. I cannot leave without mentioning the finishing charming touch. Take a look at her shoes. Don’t groan at the plastic, just take in the sparkly stars. They will always be my kryptonite. Princess lessons on a grand scale, indeed.
