Nobel Ceremony 2016

POST WILL BE UPDATED WHEN MORE PHOTOS AND INFORMATION IS AVAILABLE  

It is the most sparkly night of the year! The entire Swedish Royal Family attended the Nobel Prize Ceremony in Stockholm this evening and all of the ladies brought out the best jewels in the vaults! 

Starting with Queen Silvia, she wore a new sparkly gown which can only best be described as a bedazzled Kaftan with sleeves and a train. It was interesting to say the least- I felt that it had too much going on. Someone else described it as a "walking disco ball" and I think that is accurate (looking back at my tweet history, I originally made the same comparison). 

Queen Silvia kept with her tradition of switching between the 9 Prong Tiara and the Leuchtenberg Sapphire Parure by choosing to wear the full Leuchtenberg Sapphire Parure this evening. I would be fine with the choice if it wasn't for her dress having an ice blue undertone. Nevertheless, no one can say that Silvia did not glisten tonight! 

Moving on to Crown Princess Victoria, she wore a custom gown from H&M. This one shoulder gown was exquisite and the jewels she choose really complimented the gold designs of the fabric. What was extremely special about this gown was the materials it was made out of. H&M informed me that,

"It’s a unique dress in jacquard made of sustainable materials for the Crown Princess. The powder grey dress with a golden medallion pattern has a one-shoulder design and a long train. The dress is made of a lyocell and organic silk mix, while the underskirt is made of tulle and the lining of recycled polyester and organic silk. Recycled polyester is made of recycled PET bottles. Lyocell is a sustainable material made of old textiles or tree fibers." 

Victoria choose to pair it with her By Malene Birger clutch, gold Gianvito Rossi pumps and wore the Napoleonic Steel Cut Tiara which she paired with accessories from the Cameo Parure. 

Princess Sofia was a vision in green satin this evening. Her dress was a custom creation by House of Dagmar and while many others were not a fan, I liked it. 

She debuted a new (to her) tiara by wearing the small steel cut bandeau. This tiara has only ever been seen on Victoria a few years ago and not much is known about the history. She wore the same emerald and diamond earrings which she wore last year (borrowed from the Queen) and carried her black DvF clutch. I am extremely curious to get better photos of the brooch on her sash, because from afar I do not recognize it. 

Finally, Princess Madeleine. Madeleine proceeds to wow us more and more every year. I am not sure how she does it (or how her go-to Nobel Designer Fadi el Khoury does it!). This blush pink gown features organza and chiffon with a dramatic skirt and drain. 

Madeleine choose to wear the Connaught Tiara for her second time ever, having only worn it before at Victoria and Daniel's wedding in 2010. She carried a new clutch from Marchesa and wore a pair of pearl drop earrings from the Bernadotte vaults. Her sash was held on by the diamond bow with pearl drop brooch also from the Bernadotte Collection.
