Wedding Wednesday: Mette-Marit at Royal Weddings

For the birthday girl (she turned 40 on the 19th), a retrospective on some of our favorite Norwegian queen consort-to-be's royal wedding guest looks - both at the weddings themselves and for some assorted other wedding events:
The Dutch wedding one just makes me sad. A raincoat and a funeral hat. (And look at her taunting us because she's got the arm candy, bad outfit and all.) Her complete 180 for her sister-in-law's wedding is almost comical in comparison, like an overcorrection that went straight into Disney territory.
She's refined that step into Disney territory over the years, still loving a pastel with some frill for her fancy tiara-sporting royal weddings, but substituting tulle volume for train length. (I do love her in those pastel gowns, oh I really do.)
The tiara count comes in at two for the Amethyst Necklace Tiara (Sweden 2013 and Denmark 2004, Part 1) , one for the borrowed Queen Maud's Pearl and Diamond Tiara (Sweden 2010) and the rest for the Diamond Daisy. Conclusion: Time for the birthday girl to get a diadem upgrade, wouldn't you say?

Which look is your favorite?
