Best of 2012 - Events: Diamond Jubilee

This year, Queen Elizabeth II of Great Britain celebrated her Diamond Jubilee (60 years on the throne). It went from June 2-June 5. I apologize for not posting anything from the Jubilee. I was going to after the Jubilee. But, I got bored and I didn't want to do that. Then, it was too later. So, I just forgot. So, here's the Diamond Jubilee:

Best of 2012 - Others: Photoshoots - Individual

Best Photoshoot
Princess Madeleine of Sweden
Madeleine looks a bit awkward, but still looks fabulous! The clothing is amazing! The earrings are a favourite of mine. The hair fits Madeleine, even though I don't like her hair colour...

Best Shot
Princess Maxima of the Netherlands and Princess Estelle of Sweden
It was a tie, I orgionally just had Maxima, but then I remembered cute little Estelle's photo. Look at her! In the leaves, with her hood on and the little puff ball on the end. Aw! Then, Maxima looks fantastic! The photo is celebrating 10 years as a Princess of the Netherlands. Purple suits her, (as I've said) and I'm liking the bling.

Best Clothing
Princess Josephine and Prince Vincent of Denmark
 Can these two get any more cute? It's the twin siblings of Denmark on their first birthday in January (the 8th to be exact). Josephone's pink dress looks cute, with her pink bow in her hair. And, Vincent, aren't you looking handsome? A blue plaid shirt, looking snazy!

Worst Shot
Princess Madeleine of Sweden

Yes, a girl who has the best photoshoot can also have the worst shot. The reason? She's far away, you can hardly see her. The outfit looks terrible, and her hair when it was blond and not brown.
Worst Clothing
Crown Princess Mary of Denmark
I like Mary, and I normally like her clothes. These though, the blue shirt I don't mind, the pants look terrible. The shirt with the pants look very bad together. Not to mention the beige shawl, and the same pants (on the left picture) together - No, just no.

2012 Outfit Reviews: Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden

I have no idea what happened, I thought that I posted Crown Princess Victoria for Outfit Reviews... I guess not. Anyways, this will be the last outfits review. I'll start posting other things tomorrow, and so fourth.
Best of 2012
With Victoria, I say it's hard to chose a favourite outfit. But, in the end, I had to, so I went with this purple number. She looks fabulous! Purple suits her, and I want to see this dress agian in the New Year.
 Victoria had some outfits that really floated my boat (:3). Anyways, the green number looks awesome (I should find a better word than, 'Awesome'). The next outfit looks rather nice on VIctoria. After that, the black lace number would be my runner-runner-up outfit (meaning my 2nd favourite outfit), and the last one is an Elie Saab (I think) number, at Swedish Fashion Week (I believe). The alst, is a repeat Elie Saab (that's a fact!) from the 2010 Nobel Prize Awards. I don't even mind the Six Diamond Button tiara.
 Worst of 2012
The last outfit is by Malene Birger, it's not a favourite, I know it's maternity wear, and it's not easy to look fasionable while being comfortable. Sometimes it works. Others, it looks like this.

2012 Outfit Reviews: Princess Madeleine of Sweden

Best of 2012
 Madeleine wore a Albert Ferrari green dress to announce her engagement of Chris O'Neil. She looks great in green, especially that green. I hope she wears that dress another time, and soon!
Princess Madeleine looked great in the blue dress to the concert after the Opening of Parliament. On the 16th, Madeleine wore the blue evening dress to a wedding in Switzerland. The next evening gown was... I don't remember, but it's one of my favourites that she's worn. The last outfit, was originally my favourite, the gray coat looks great.
Worst of 2012
When I saw this dress, I kind of liked it. Later, I realized that I hate it. The designs look random and totally made up (that's what most prints are but, they don't match anything). The sleeves don't look bad, but the beads on there looks weird. Long story short, this dress looks terrible!

2012 Outfit Reviews: Princess Mathilde, Duchess of Brabant

Best of 2012
 This dress and the orange dress below were hard to chose. But, purple (I say) looks good on everyone. The design of the dress looks nice and the shade of purple looks awesome.
Like I said above, about the dresses. The next dresses were in Vietnam Mathilde and Philippe. I love all the styles of the dresses, it's always nice to see something different.
Worst of 2012
This is a no brainer. I don't like stripes, especially black and white stripes. The white jacket softens the looks, same with the purse, it still looks hideous! And the shoes... oh the shoes... they're matching the pants and shirt...
