Style Inspiration: Victoria, Crown Princess of Sweden, Duchess of Västergötland


A little Princess was born 23rd February 2012, named Estelle Silvia Ewa Mary, Duchess of Östergötland

Seems their first little Prince or Princess is due to arrive in March 2012 – many congratulations!

I love reading about Royals in other countries and was really impressed by Victoria’s wedding. Her gown, veil and crown looked absolutely stunning. Some 6 months after her marriage, she attended the Nobel Peace prize in a breathtaking Ellie Saab dress (top photos). I mean just look at her! The back is even lovelier! She wears another nude Saab creation off the runway with extra ruffles added at the hem. But she’s not afraid of colour. The peach, fitted dress she wore to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s wedding proved her confidence and ease in her own skin.

I had no idea then how far she’d come to get to this point knowing nothing about her personal trials. As a young woman, she suffered from Anorexia and was treated over a period of time in USA which gave her the chance of anonymity during her treatment and recovery. The above photo, I believe shows her at the height of her illness. She’s 34 now and looks amazingly happy.

    I prefer the Ellie Saab gowns to anything else she is wearing, she look fab in those! I don’t really take a great deal of notice of foreign royals, but this is one stylish lady!

    She is beautiful! Anorexia is no joke and almost impossible to get over. I’m so impressed with her style. i think Kate Middleton could take a page out of her book and try something different every once and a while
