Today, we will be looking at what Silvia wore to leonore’s christening.
Hair/ headpiece: I like Silvia’s hair and the headpiece…except for the netting/veil thing. It just doesn’t look right. 1.5/2.
Accessories: simple but they work for the outfit. 2/2.
Outfit in general: yes, it is basically Madde’s dress but with a slightly different design and color. But silvia pulls it off. Maybe, it is because this dress is longer and suits her better. However, I wish that the dress wasn’t long sleeved. 1.75/2.
Suitability for event: for an event where she is just a proud grandmother, this outfit is perfection. 2/2.
Suitability for wearer: silvia is a bit of a fashion horse, so this Valentino dress is great. But, I wanted a bit more. I don’t know what, I just want more, 1.75/2.
Overall, silvia gets a 9 out of 10. A really great outfit to celebrate her second grandchild.

"The Bests" p2 PART 2

I have now been here as a royal fandom member for a bit over a year. Over that year I have been able to follow and see some amazing blogs, as well as talk to the amazing owners of those blogs. Many here on this list I call my friends. These people put so much hard work into making their blogs as amazing as possible. They do spams that make us all smile, they make beautiful edits and they make wonderfully creative GIF’s. I’m so proud of all the nominees in this category and in every category! I’m also so proud of those who weren’t even nominated! Everyone in the fandom is truly wonderful and amazing! With out further ado here is part TWO of the winners for “The Bests” category. 

Best mixed blog: 1000picsofroyalty 

Best Monaco/Casiraghi blog: Casiraghitrio

Best European royal family blog: Kronprinsessa

Best in smaller nation: Claireofluxembourg

Best fashion blog: Thecrownoutfits 

Best GIF’s: Crownprincely 

Congrats to all of the nominees! Yeah, I didn’t win, but it is all good! I am just going to work on being the best blog I can be. Massive congratulations to the crownoutfits!

Today, I will be looking at what proud mama Madeleine wore to her daughter’s christening.
Hair/ headpiece: I would have died to have seen her hair in more elegant waves than this. I also detest the veil thing because of the pink accent points. It just looks weird. .75/2.
Accessories: subtle but can’t really do necklaces or big earrings with this outfit or hair. 2/2.
Outfit in general: I like the color, especially with her coloring. But,  this whole outfit makes her look just blah, especially with how short the dress is. 1/2.
Suitability for event: I think it is way too short for a church event, especially if you are holding the center of attention. 1/2.
Suitability for wearer: it is Valentino, but it just makes her look too young. I want Madde to look fabulous and not so-so. 1/2.
Madde gets a 5.75/10. If this dress would have been longer, I would have loved it. But, unfortunately it isn’t.

I will be inducting Victoria’s outfit from leonore’s christening to the royalredcarpet hall of fame. As soon as I saw her enter the church with estelle in tow, I was giddy with excitement for how awesome she looked. I love the flower headdress, especially after I found out that it is a slight replica of what silvia wore to Carl Phillip’s christening. I love how the dress looks on her both in structure and color. I just love this outfit. I know some people hate this outfit, but I have to strongly disagree. 
What are your thoughts?

For our final d-day celebration retrospective, we are looking at the duchess of cambridge.
Hair/hat: I was wanting something a little more elegant from Kate’s hair. I kinda like the hat, but it is a little awkwardly placed. 1.25/2.
Accessories: I like the bouquet, but I am missing something big to complete the outfit. This outfit is calling for a brooch or a statement necklace. 1/2.
Outfit in general: I like the color. But, I don’t like the collar and knee splits. I wish this outfit was a little less rigid. 1/2.
Suitability for event: this coat feels a little too wintery for a outside spring/summer event. 1.25/2.
Suitability for wearer: this is standard Kate fare. 2/2.
Catherine gets a 6.5 out of 10. I was wishing for a little more from her. It is nice but a little blah. 
Tomorrow, we will be going to Sweden and celebrating the christening of princess leonore.

Today, I will be looking at Camilla’s outfit from the d-day celebrations.
Hat/hair: this is standard Camilla fare. But when she does it right, like she does here, it is quite elegant. 2/2.
Accessories: props for her wearing a brooch to honor her honorary military appointment at a event honoring the military. 2/2.
Outfit in general: I like the white. However, in certain pictures, the white appears to be a bit sheer. 1.25/2.
Suitability for occasion: I think it looks quite fresh for this event. 2/2.
Suitability for wearer: clean, simple, yet has some bling. This is pure Camilla. 2/2.
Overall, Camilla gets a 9.25/10.

Today, we will be looking at queen Margrethe’s outfit at the d-day celebrations.
Hat: Since she only has a few strands of hair appearing, I can only judge the hat. I dig the hat. If anyone can pull off a hat that has the square top, it is daisy. 2/2.
Accessories: she has a purse and a couple of brooches. I wish that the brooches were slightly bigger, but because these are seemingly brooches commemorating the danish military, I shouldn’t be complaining at all. 2/2.
Outfit in general: I really like daisy in blue. It is a color I don’t see her in too often, but she should wear more. I even like the top she has. Unlike max and Liz, daisy is actually being quite subtle with her patterned outfit. 2/2.
Suitability for event: I think this outfit works for the type of solemn summer event. 2/2.
Suitability for wearer: I wish to have a bit more of theatrics from daisy. Other than that, it is pretty perfect. 1.75/2.
Overall, daisy gets a 9.75 from 10. A pretty great outfit. Two more outfits from d-day and then we will discuss some outfits from leonore’s christening.

On behalf of prince George’s first birthday (where did the time to?), we will be judging what his great-grandma wore to the d-day celebrations. Hat/ hair: the hair is standard Liz. I will give her some props about her hat being a bit modern for her tastes. I don’t like how the area around the brim becomes netting. 1.75/2. Accessories: your normal Liz accessories (pearl necklaces, boxy purse, gloves, and brooch). However, the brooch is amazing. 2/2. Outfit in general: I kinda like the lime green color on her. However, this outfit is best when she leaves the coat on. For the big picture of all of the heads of state, she took it off to show her quite busy dress with a pattern of flowers that didn’t look right on her at all, especially at this event. 1.25/2. Suitability for event: coat on, perfect. Coat off, not so much. 1/2. Suitability for wearer: similar to above. With the coat on, this outfit is great, but without it, not so much, 1/2. Overall, queen Elizabeth’s outfit gets a 9/10 with the coat on, and a 7/10 with the coat off. But, of course, it is queen elizabeth, she doesn’t care.


Beautiful brooch!!
Queen Victoria’s fringe brooch,made in October 1856 by R & S Garrard
It was left to King Edward VII and often worn by his consort, Queen Alexandra. Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother wore the brooch for the coronation in 1953.

Thanks for the info!

Sorry for the picture being blurry, it was hard to find a good picture of Maria teresa at the d-day celebrations. But, here we go.
Hair/hat: I like the flip she has with her hair. It makes her look extremely chic and youthful. The pillbox hat though is placed a little awkwardly. 1.75/2.
Accessories: I love the simpleness of these accessories. I really dig the brooch. I also like the fact that the clutch has both black and white in it to tie the whole ensemble together. 2/2.
Outfit in general: the outfit feels a little awkward. The cardigan looks both too big and too small. The top is just a little too tight it seems. I do like the stark contrast between black and white. 1/2.
Suitability for occasion: I think this is a strong outfit for a summer event that is honoring the dead. 2/2.
Suitability for wearer: mt looks pretty solid in this outfit. She is one of the few royals that can be extremely strong in her daytime events. Despite the awkwardness of the fit, I feel like this is right up her alley. 1.75/2.
Mt gets a 8.5/10 for this outfit. It is a good outfit and I wish I had a better picture of it for y’all.

Max,max,max. I really wanted her to be awesome at this event, which is her first major international event since becoming queen that includes royals (yes, I do need to clarify.) Anyway, what has me so frustrated with her?
Hair/hat: I do realize that wind was in play on this day, but her hair was kinda of a mess. Maybe that is due to her “hat”. I will be honest, I hate these “hats”. They just like fabric thrown on to kinda cover the head. I would have preferred maxima in a turban or no hat over this look. .75/2.
Accessories: Everything was good…and then she whipped out the aviators. Okay, she does look good in them, but they do not look good for this event or for this look. 1/2.
Outfit in general: I like the coat. Yellow is a good color to convey the solemnity yet joy of d-day. The dress/skirt thing is just a little too busy in general. 1/2.
Suitability for event: this outfit is great for an outdoor summer event. But, and this is an important but, this event celebrates a very momentous but dire day in world history. As such, I think this outfit is a little too unrestrained (if that makes sense). 1/2.
Suitability for wearer: Who are we kidding here? Maxima is the only person who could even attempt to pull all of this off. 2/2.
Overall, maxima’s outfit from the d-day commemorations gets a 5.75 out of 10. If only this was just a regular royal event and not a big battle commemoration…
