Pretty in Pastels for the Polar Music Prize
This evening, the King handed out the Polar Music Prize to German violinist Anne-Sophie Mutter, Mark Johnson & Whitney Kroenke from Playing For Change, and Grandmaster Flash at the Grand Hotel in Stockholm.
The Polar Music Prize was founded in 1989 by Stig "Stikkan" Anderson- the publisher, manager, and lyricist of ABBA. The award is one of the most prestigious awards in music as it is given to individuals, bands, and institutions and is awarded to a musicians in a variety of genres from around the world. The King has been presenting the award for many years. Previous winners have included Yo-Yo Ma, Led Zeppelin, Joni Mitchell, and Elton John- to name a few.
Queen Silvia wore a new pastel, paisley gown which she paired with pearls from her jewelry box, including a pearl bracelet which features her royal cypher in diamonds on the clasp.
Crown Princess Victoria wore a new custom pink tulle dress from up-and-coming designer Salem Fessahaye. Her dress featured a belted waist with voluminous tulle bodice and hi-low skirt. She paired this with her Dior Patent Leather Pumps and pink statement earrings from the Ingy Stockholm. On her wrist she wore her classic combination of Ebba Brahe and Sophie by Sophie bracelets.
Her bag we first saw the Crown Princess carry in 2011 to the wedding of Catherine Middleton and Prince William. The bag comes from custom made bag designer Rayna Cunningham. The Swedish designer created the bag out of 3 pieces of delicate Salmon Fish Skin which was “melted” together to create such a beautiful bag.
Princess Sofia wore a new floral gown from Dolce & Gabbana which she paired this with red and gold accessories. She carried her gold Puccini quilted clutch bag with her Daniele Tortora pumps from Marzio. She continued the gold theme to her accessories opting for a new pair of Gas Bijoux earrings sold at Deisys in Stockholm and on her wrist, her Ole Lynggaard Circus bracelet could be seen. Upon her head she wore a floral crown made from individual flowers from Eivy Flodin.
