Tiara Watch of the Day: Triple Tiaras in Sweden

The Swedish royal family is here to keep us in sparkle for another week! (A true public service.) They held one of their regular Representation Dinners last night; King Carl Gustaf, Queen Silvia, Crown Princess Victoria, Prince Daniel, Prince Carl Philip, and Princess Sofia attended.


That's a pleasingly orchestrated color palette, isn't it? All muted and tailor-made for that Order of the Seraphim sash and accented with diamonds galore. Princess Sofia's gown ties the whole group together. She wore her Emerald and Diamond Tiara without the emeralds again.

Feels like Queen Silvia uses this basic gown shape often enough that I can no longer tell when one is new or repeated. That's definitely a case of "if it ain't broke, don't fix it," though, because this is really flattering on her. She finished it off with the Connaught Tiara.

Crown Princess Victoria kept this weekend's fringe fest rolling by repeating the Baden Fringe Tiara. She wore an H&M Conscious Exclusive dress we've seen before, but...

...I'm gonna go ahead and say that not every full-length gown is capable of handling a tiara event. This seems too casual. Besides, one never wants one's sash to be smushing one's ruffles.
