Royal Retrospective – Victoria at the Polar Music Prize

Yesterday we discussed this year’s Polar Music Prize. Today we are taking a trip down memory lane with Crown Princess Victoria.

Victoria usually goes quite a bit outside of her wheelhouse for this event, and we’ve had some pretty interesting looks from her.

Last year was a one shoulder gown by Stylein, from their A/W 18 collection.

For 2017 Victoria wore a custom made gown by Diana Orving.

In 2016 Victoria paired a Ralph Lauren dress with a necklace from H&M’s 2014 Conscious Collection (although she did blend into the white carpet…).

In 2015 it was a gown by Dagmar.

2014 included some more H&M, with a dress from their Conscious Collection.

2016 is definitely my favorite (so far), but she’s had some pretty good ones. What do you guys think is her best?

Which of Victoria's looks was your fave?

Victoria and Daniel in Vietnam

Crown Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel of Sweden took a trip to Vietnam last week, to draw attention to the 50 years of diplomatic relations between the countries.

Victoria and Daniel met with Vice President Dang Thi Ngoc Thinh at a reception at the Presidential Palace in Hanoi. Victoria wore the butterfly dress from her 40th birthday.

Later that day, and an outfit change later, the couple took to the streets to visit a few shops.

And one more change later for the official dinner.

At the reception Victoria received a gorgeous piece of fabric. Can’t wait to see what this becomes.

On their second day, they visited the UN Country Office, and later attended the Sweden-Vietnam Business Summit.

A bit of fun with a street vendor.

The couple started the last day of their visit with a trip to Ho Chi Minh City.

Afterwards they, and the delegation from the Sweden-Vietnam Business Summit met with some young entrepreneurs. After their meeting they attended a dinner with Mayor Nguyen Thanh Phong.

Overall it seems like a pretty successful visit, with some interesting dresses along the way. I’d have to say my faves are the yellow floral and the last pastel one.

What do you guys think of the trip?

I have to admit that I’m not overly fond of the unrelieved burgundy from head to toe. Coat, scarf, trousers, gloves, and shoes? It’s all too much. I wish she would have pulled in some of the colors that Daniel, Estelle and Oscar were wearing. Burgundy coat, pink scarf, navy trousers, black boots. Anything to tone it down a just a titch.
