Princess Madeleine: Our Fashion Favourites


In our latest fashion feature, we take a look at our favourite style moments of Princess Madeleine of Sweden:

The outfit Madeleine wore to Princess Adrienne’s christening in 2018 is probably my favourite look of hers ever. The sheer, cream-coloured Giambattista Valli dress was perfect for a June christening with its floral print, and the dangling cameo earrings were a lovely touch (I adore the Swedish cameo tiara). The flower headband literally tops it off for me, just so lovely and summery.

The Nobel Prize Ceremony is always an excellent fashion event, and last December, I thought Madeleine looked stunning in a hot pink Angel Sanchez gown. The bold colour and voluminous skirt delivers some 1980s vibes, and the sheer illusion panel gives the impression of a strapless gown until you see the row of buttons marching down the back. The pink shade looked perfect with the Swedish Aquamarine Kokoshnik Tiara and dazzling diamond chandelier earrings.

Princess Madeleine is one of my favourites when it comes to royal style. Rarely does she make a fashion misstep, and outfits usually look gorgeous on her. So, it was tough for me to select just two fashion favourites.

My first choice is the one-shouldered Grecian greyish/white gown by Jenny Packham with sequins on the bodice that she has worn more than once. I love the one-shouldered look and the sequins that peak out in the centre of the bodice. It compliments her figure so well, and it is an outfit that is truly a representation of Madeleine’s style – classy and polished with just a hint of risk.

This will probably forever by my favourite combination Princess Madeleine has ever put together – the custom Fadi el Khoury creation for the Nobel Prize Ceremony in 2015. I loved everything about this look from the dress to how the Aquamarine Kokoshnik Tiara matches and glitters perfectly alongside the glittery gown which featured buttons down the front and sheer long sleeves.

She also re-wore the entire outfit a few months later for a tea party with children at the Royal Palace for her patronage Min Stora Dag (My Big Day) which is like the Make a Wish Foundation. The tea party had a theme of princesses and princes, and the children came dressed as little royals. They received a wonderful surprise when Madeleine showed up in all her glamour and sat on the floor with them for photos after the tea party.

My two favourite outfits of Princess Madeleine are the floral Giambattista Valli dress she wore at the christening of her youngest daughter Princess Adrienne and the black lace dress she wore at the Valentino show in 2013.

I had an extremely hard time choosing my two favourite looks because I think Princess Madeleine is one of the best-dressed royals at the moment. She is not afraid to take risks, and her outfits are very versatile. The diversity in her fashion choices can also be seen in the two looks I chose. She often wears dresses or pantsuits in soft, pastel colours often with flowers. The dress she wore at the christening of Princess Adrienne is a great example. The headband with flowers made her look like a real angel.

At the same time, she is stunning in a more sensual black dress. The combination with the red lips and white pearl earrings make the look even stronger. If I may suggest one point of improvement, I would say that she should wear more Swedish designs. There are so many talented Swedish designers, and Madeleine often chooses big international brands such as Valentino.

My first choice is the blue Fadi el Khoury gown from the Nobels and princess tea party. This dress is an absolutely perfect match for the aquamarine tiara, which is a stunner in its own right. On Madeleine it looks so regal. And it will always have a special place in my heart because of its appearance at the tea party, which is still my absolute favourite royal engagement ever.

My second choice is the Valentino dress from the christening of her son, Prince Nicolas. This dress has such gorgeous colours done in a beautiful pattern. The colour palette complements both Madeleine and the fall timing of the christening. This is a case of a great look picked for the right occasion and wearer.
