Picture Perfect--Princess Madeleine of Sweden and her husband US-British hedge fund financier Christopher O' Neill

As I previously talked about HERE, the youngest child of King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia of Sweden got married in a lavish Royal Wedding this past Saturday. In that post, it was all about Madeleine and her GORGEOUS Valentino Haute Couture wedding gown, designed by the (not so much) retired couturier Valentino Garavani.
Now, it's time to discuss the Guests, most all Royal, and one fabulously chic former Swedish reality show star...Let's get to it:

Parade of Princesses--(left to right) Crown Princess Mary of Denmark, Princess Martha-Louise of Norway and Crown Princess Mette-Marit of Norway

Queen Silvia of Sweden (with her dashing son Prince Carl Philip, Duke of Värmland)--Queen Silvia who is of course, the mother-of-the-bride, looked the part in a jade-colored silk organza gown with embroidered silk lace and Swarovski crystals. She styled it with Queen Sofia’s tiara, plus she wore the Order of the Seraphim on a ribbon with a brilliant grand star. The Queen gets major FAB points for this entire look. Very well done.

Victoria, Crown Princess of Sweden, Duchess of Västergötland--Crown Princess Victoria wore a lilac-colored silk organza gown with layers of hand-dyed tulle accented with pearls and Swarovski crystals in amethyst and pale grey opal by Swedish couturier Fadi el Khoury. She accented her stunning gown with Princess Lilian’s Boucheron tiara and corsage, with the Order of the Seraphim on a ribbon with grand star (just like her mom, Queen Silvia). Her husband, Prince Daniel, who carried his wife’s clutch and Estelle’s pacifier, wore a tail coat with the Order of the Seraphim on a ribbon with grand star, while young Estelle attended her first big occasion wearing a white dress

Mary, Crown Princess of Denmark, Countess of Monpezat--Crown Princess Mary--The princess wore a bright pink lace gown with a matching chiffon cape that featured a satin hem band. A blue-and-yellow sash, royal order family brooch, silver clutch and a stunning diamond tiara completed the look. I loved the color and the exaggerated capelet.

Mette-Marit, Crown Princess of Norway--Crown Princess Mette-Marit of Norway wore a pale blue glacé gown that also featured a capelet from the Italian fashion brand, Emilio Pucci. As you may already know, the Creative Director of Emilio Pucci is Peter Dundas and (you guessed it!) he's from Norway. He's popular with the Norwegian royals, darling. The gown is pretty, I just feel her neck looks a bit "cut-off" by the high-necked capelet.

Princess Marie of Denmark, Countess of Monpezat and Prince Joachim of Denmark--Princess Marie of Denmark looks quite beautiful in this pale pink fit-to-flare gown. The lightly embellished gown has a fitted waist, see-through silk organza  top/neck section with drop shoulders. She looked very "Disney Princess Lite".

Princess Tatiana and Prince Nikolaos of Greece and Denmark--Princess Tatiana née Tatiana Ellinka Blatnik  (in case you didn't know) was born in Venezuela, is of Slovenian-German descent and comes from an aristocratic family. Before her marriage to Nikolaos, she worked in the pr and event planning department for designer Diane Von Furstenberg. The Venezuelan born princess wore a very pretty gown in a pastel blue--similar color to Crown Princess Mette-Marit of Sweden. The strapless dress features ruching on the bust which knots and drops in a full gown-skirt. She looks young, fresh and very "Princess"-like.

Marie-Chantal, Crown Princess of Greece, Princess of Denmark--The always stylish Marie-Chantal, accompanied fashion designer Valentino (who is Honorary president of the fashion brand and, more importantly, also designed Princess Madeleine's wedding gown) and Giancarlo Giammetti on a private jet to Sweden (as you can see from her Instagram photo above). At the wedding, Crown Princess Marie-Chantal did a no-no and wore white (Mon Dieu!) but I think she looked pretty flawless. Her simple high necked gown had an embellished neckline, waist  and sleeve hem; had gathered pouffy glove-length sleeves and a fit-to-flare sheath silhouette.

Princess Theodora of Greece and Denmark and her brother Prince Philippos--Theodora is the youngest child of former King Constantine II of Greece and Anne-Marie of Denmark. She wore a sequined light blue gown with a high boat neck and cap sleeves. I like the sparkle of the gown and it fits her well. I only wish it was longer and actually "kissed" the floor.

Edward Earl of Wessex and Sophie, Countess of Wessex--The British Royal Family were represented at the wedding by Prince Edward and Sophie, Countess of Wessex. Sophie wore a pale pink (pastels were BIG at this wedding!) gown and matching clutch bag with a blue-and-red Royal Victorian Order sash. The gown had a heavy embroidered lace top section. The dress looks a bit mumsy but I do love her hair and the pointed heels.

Princess Märtha Louise of Norway-- The Norwegian princess wore an Emilio Pucci gown designed by Norway-born designer/creative director Peter Dundas (just like Crown Princess Mette-Marit). When we think of Pucci, we think of ultra mini, uber sexy dresses; however, both styles he designed for these princesses are a bit of a departure. But, as you can see, Dundas can do "Royal Couture" quite well. Märtha Louise's lilac-colored off-the-shoulder gown featured light applique as well as full pleated back train. It was dramatic and quite elegant.

Princess Charlene of Monaco--Princess Charlene (sans her husband Prince Albert II) wore a strapless ruched mocha colored peplum gown with a chiffon shawl draped over her shoulder. The gown was from the Swiss luxury brand, Akris.

Stéphanie, Hereditary Grand Duchess of Luxembourg and Hereditary Grand Duke Guillaime--Stéphanie wore a golden sequined and ruched fluted silhouette gown with a square neckline. She accessorized it with a gold clutch, golden jewels and tiara, and a light peach-colored shawl.

Princess Takamado of Japan--Princess Takamado is a member of the Japanese Imperial Family and widow of Prince Takamado who was first cousin to Emperor Akihito and seventh in line for the Chrysanthemum throne. It's nice to see a member of the Japanese Imperial Family not wear stark white (or be covered up like a nun, a la Crown Princess Masako). The princess wore a bight turquoise gown that had a full skirt shape and sequined lace torso section.

Sofia Hellqvist--Finally I wanted to discuss this lovely lady, Sofia Hellqvist. Hellqvist is Swedish Prince Carl Philip's (yes, the HOT one--seen on the top of this blog with his mom Queen Silvia) domestic partner aka "Steady Girlfriend" and therefore (kind of) part of the Swedish royal family. She was a model, beauty pageant winner and a reality show star (At a Girl!). She really stood out at the wedding, not just by her stunning beauty, but by the simple, chic gown she wore.  Sofia chose a pale-lavender crepe-back satin gown with a cowl and drop-shoulder neckline. She accessorized it perfectly with the gold "leaf" earrings and sequined clutch. One of the BEST of the guests!

the brown peplum gown was my fav. I thought it was different and still elegant. I agree about Sophi's dress, she looked perfectly put together.
