Month in Review: Crown Princess Pavlos and Tatiana Blatnik, June

Here's what 2 of the most stylish members of the Greek royal family wore in June:

Marie-Chantal, Crown Princess Pavlos
  1. King Constantine's 70th Birthday Party, 2 June.  The party was held at M-C and Pavlos's house, so there weren't any good pictures of her.  Can't see much here, but I like the hairdo.
  2. Diane von Furstenberg and Claridge's Launch Party in London, 23 June.
Tatiana Blatnik 
  1.  King Constantine's 70th Birthday Party, 2 June.  This dress is Amanda Wakeley, see here.
  2. Arriving in Stockholm, 17 June.
  3. Private dinner at Drottninghom, 17 June, a) on the Andrew Gn runway and b) in Stockholm.
  4. Pre-wedding dinner and concert, 18 June.
  5. Crown Princess Victoria's Wedding, 19 June.  Obviously a custom design here, but you can see the similarities in the tone of the tulle and the floral embellishment with this dress, from Herrera's Fall 2010 RTW collection.
  6. Diane von Furstenberg and Claridge's Launch Party in London, 23 June.  I'm guessing this is DVF, on account of the function and the fact that Tatiana works for her.  We need more royals that work in the fashion industry.
Best and Worst of the Month
I read that Carolina Herrera is on the shortlist for making Tatiana's wedding gown, and I hope it's true!  Tatiana didn't put a foot wrong this month.  I love her already.  This frothy dress was just perfect for the Swedish wedding - not too much, not too little.  Marie-Chantal, on the other hand, wasn't enough at the DVF party.  The dress is plain, and I don't get the combo with the tan/brown shoes.  I'm disappointed we didn't see her at the wedding festivities; surely that would have been the sartorial high point of her month.

UPDATE:  Found another one for Tatiana - from Princess Madeleine's World Childhood gala on 30 June...
...and we have a miss.  I think this is Diane von Furstenberg.
