When Crown Princess Mette-Marit appeared at Queen Margrethe’s 75th birthday celebration yesterday in chunky gold headband, I was reminded that this headband has been changed up several times with the use of different ribbon trims. Don’t get me wrong- a changed ribbon does NOT elevate this headband to the status of a hat but it gives us something a little out of the ordinary to debate. Which version of this headband works best, do you think?
Version #1: With a side bow in oyster silk worn at Queen Margrethe’s 70th birthday celebration, April 17, 2010.
Version #2: With a wide navy silk side bow at King Harald and Queen Sonja’s 75th birthday celebration, May 31, 2012
Version #3: Woven with a navy ribbon tied at the side in a bow for the Luxembourg royal wedding on October 20, 2012
Version #4: Woven with a red velvet ribbon and worn yesterday at Queen Margrethe’s 75th birthday lunch
UPDATE- Version #5: Woven with black velvet ribbon which continues around her low ponytail. This was worn for the Nobel Peace Prize Ceremony on December 12, 2015
Which outing of this golden headband to you think works best?
