Royal Outfit of the Day: February 14

Crown Princess Mette-Marit wore this pink tiered gown with an embellished belt to Crown Princess Victoria's pre-wedding events and afterwards for other events, including these official portraits.
I thought we needed something for Valentine's Day, something appropriately frilly and pink and red. And when you need something froofy and pastel, your girl M-M always has you covered. Mette-Marit has a series of these sorts of gowns, and this one like most of the rest comes from Norwegian designer Peter Dundas at Emilio Pucci. I fall for them every time, because 1) they suit her and 2) they are so different from what she wears to go about her daily business, and I'm a sucker for someone just openly getting their princess on. This one makes a great base for her red accessories (red stones in the earrings, plus the red ribbons involved in her sash and family order), and it makes a perfect Valentine treat for us on this February 14th.
