In part two (or part three if you count the open post) of the coverage of Prince Oscar‘s Christening, which took place at the Royal Chapel of the Royal Palace yesterday, May 27, let’s look at the fashion from the royals in attendance: Crown Princess Victoria, Princess Estelle, Princess Madeleine, Princess Leonore, Princess Sofia, Queen Silvia, Crown Princess Mette-Marit, and Crown Princess Mary.
The star of our show, Prince Oscar, wore the traditional Swedish Christening gown (you can read more about that here if you haven’t already). His mother, Crown Princess Victoria, wore a bespoke white version of the “Emily” dress from By Malina (the non-bespoke version is $290). Victoria wore Kreuger Jewellery “Amiral oval pearl earrings” (15000 SEK or $1,796), a white feather-y Philip Treacy hat, and white Gianvito Rossi Gianvito 105 pumps ($695.00).
I’m not sure I love Victoria’s outfit, but I do love that she went all matchy-matchy with Princess Estelle. Estelle wore a white dress with flower details and carried a a floral bag from Charabia Paris. She also wore her very own white fascinator and string of pearls.
Princess Madeleine wore a pink Roksanda Ilincic “Margot cotton and silk-blend dress” ($2,190), a pink flower hat, and diamond earrings from Queen Josefine’s Diamond Stomacher. She wore nude Jimmy Choo pumps ($595.00). Love the hat; the sleeves not so much.
Princess Leonore wore a blue and white dress and a white bow with her two French braids.
Chris O’Neill and Prince Nicolas, who was not loving the photogs.
Prince Carl Philip and Princess Sofia. Sofia wore a blue Antonio Berardi “Cape-back stretch-crepe dress” ($1,540), carried a blush pink studded clutch from Valentino ($776.40), and wore nude Saint Laurent pumps ($595.00). While I think the color looks good on Sofia, I’m not really loving the dress design. Capes are cool, but I don’t like how the fabric sits on her shoulders in front.
King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia. Silvia wore a blush pink dress, shawl, and hat. Her clutch comes from Jimmy Choo (originally $1,450.00, now $725.00 at FarFetch), and her shoes are also Jimmy Choo (originally $895.00, now $447.00 at Neiman Marcus).
Crown Princess Mette-Marit and Crown Prince Frederik.
Mette-Marit wore a green dress with a peter pan collar (Ugh. Adult women need to stop wearing peter pan collars). She accessorized with a diamond headband (love!), diamond and pearl earrings, and an aquamarine and diamond brooch.
Crown Princess Mary walked in with Crown Prince Haakon. Mary looked amazing – this is my favorite look from the event. Mary went with a black and white silk floral dress from Max Mara‘s 2015 collection. She paired it with a giant navy hat with a cream flower from Susanne Juul, Gianvito Rossi “Mesh-paneled suede pumps” ($308), and earrings from Dulong Fine Jewelry.
Princess Christina was there in an odd black hat-flap thing. It looks like a black clam is eating her head.
