King Carl Gustaf and Queen Silvia kicked off a visit to India yesterday.
For the first day of this visit, Queen Silvia wore a new, leaf-shaped royal blue headpiece trimmed with lovely handmade flowers with beaded stamen centers.
The colour is ace on Silvia and the headpiece’s smooth surface contrasts nicely with her lace dress. The flowers are also a fantastic touch. I’m less certain about the shape and placement- it works well with Queen Silvia’s hairstyle from front view but less so from the side. It’s nice to see her experiment with the more traditional calot shape she often wears but I’m just not sure this shape is a great one.
