Dutch Gala Dinner

The Dutch hosted a dinner for their royal and non-royal guests tonight and there were tuxedos, gowns and tiaras. In other words, my favourite kind of dinners.

Hereditary Grand Duchess Stéphanie opted for an Elie Saab dress which has similarities to the Saab dresses worn by several women at the pre-wedding gala in Luxembourg last year. All of them were Ready to Wear, so I'm inclined to believe that this one is, too. If we throw away the wrap (and all other wraps she owns), we'll be in business. She topped of her look with the Grand Duchess Adelaide Tiara which is made of a large central sapphire and diamonds and makes quite the rounds on Luxembourgish heads as of late.

The event also gives us the chance to introduce some of our new editions to the blog, Hereditary Prince Alois and Hereditary Princess Sophie of Liechtenstein. What better way to introduce people than by admiring the tiara on their head?! In this case it is the Habsburg Fringe Tiara also described as "the fringiest fringe that ever fringed" (by Order of Splendor, which you should also consult to have a look at all of tonight's fashions once it becomes available). Mady by Austrian jeweller Köchert, it came into the Liechtenstein family via the Hereditary Prince's grandmother Archduchess Elisabeth-Amalie of Austria and thus we have the explanation for its name.

For pictures of more bejewelled ladies and dashing gentlemen, have a look at Hello!, Belga, PPE, Getty Images, Semana, AFP, Hola, Zimbio, Berlingske and pretty much all over the internet. A video of the royal guests arriving, can be found at NOS.
