...THIS. This is a most perplexing frock. I actually love the shape for her. There's a little train on the skirt to take it into definite gala gown territory, perfect for tiaras and orders. So, why select colors that have so much color clashing potential? I mean, they're soft colors, but they don't go with a whole lot. Even the basic dark blue of the Icelandic Order of the Falcon feels jarring. The red of Norway's sash would have been worse. MOST PERPLEXING.
