Princess Ingrid Alexandra went to reuse it Their own party.
Wearing a dress that Princess Mette-Marit first wore in 2005, she set the stage for the rest of the evening.
– Sends an important signal. Perhaps especially because she chose an extravagant, luxurious design during Thursday’s state gala at Deichman. Wearing her mother’s Alberta Ferretti dress, KK Magazine’s fashion editor Edda Elise Enarsdóttir says she meets in the middle of the zeitgeist.
Homemade prom dress
Several other guests also opted for reuse and sustainability this evening.
Vintage and reuse in the wind as part of the green wave, and it is right and important for the royal family to lead by example. It’s more than just a trend, says Einarsdottir.
She refers, among other things, to Minister of Justice Emily Inger Mehl, who sewed her own dress.
Prime Minister Jonas Gahr Store also went for reuse, telling NRK with relief that he was wearing his grandfather’s suit.
Three generations of reuse
Queen Sonya wore a yellow dress that she first wore in 1997, when she received it as a gift for her 60th birthday.
It has been proven that the dress was dear to the Queen, who wore it on several occasions.
Crown Princess Mette-Marit wore a pink dress specially designed for her by Norwegian designer Peter Dundas.
She has worn the dress several times, such as during the wedding of Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden and her husband, Prince Daniel.
However, the KK editor is missing out on more Norwegian styling during the Christmas party.
Norwegian Fashion Week is around the corner, and I would like to see the princess in Norwegian design for the next occasion. Einarsdottir thinks she would probably be a very good ambassador for Norwegian fashion.
Princess Märtha Louise also wore a dress designed by Queen Sonya.
– All eyes are on her
Famous fashion designer Marianne Jimtigaard was in no doubt about what she thought of her dress choice for tonight:
– This is a good picture that our future heir to the throne is truly the princess of her time. I think it’s great to see you making conscious decisions. And then, you shouldn’t wear such beautiful dresses more than once only, Jemtegård tells NRK.
Ida Elise Einarsdóttir adds that this isn’t the first time the princess has chosen to reuse.
– She chose her mother’s clothes several times for formal occasions. The princess will be Norway’s first modern-day queen, so all eyes are naturally on her, says the fashion editor.
So she thinks it’s gratifying that the princess was inspired by her grandmother and mother.
