In true Nordic princess fashion, Mette-Marit loves her white, and sometimes I love it too, especially when it's truly clean and simple. (Or, of course, in amazing wedding dress format.)
That said - I never, ever, object to a shot of vibrant color.
Not every gala appearance of hers is magical, but when she's on point, she's one of the best.
Sometimes her penchant for ruffles can be a bit tiring, but other times...
She also has a track record of excellent maternity style:
(You know, I didn't intend for this post to be so pink and purple and blue, but I guess I have a Mette-Marit fashion type.)
There's something that I love about her even more than the gala gowns, though: SHOES.
If you can believe it, though, my absolute favorite Mette-Marit appearances don't involve tiaras or shoes (well, okay, shoes are involved, but you know what I mean).
Making a national costume look less "costume" and more "everyday" is a talent, I think, and this one has it in spades. Here's to many more stylish years!
