National Day Gala: Tiaras and Hey, I Know That Dress

It's not National Day in Luxembourg without a sparkling gala event to round it all off - and thankfully we are visually blessed this year.  Ch-ch-check out Tageblatt and the cour for more pictures. Before we get to the tiaras and gowns, get our facts out of the way: Invited were members of the government, the bureau of the Chamber of Deputies, the Council of State, representatives of the judiciary, heads of the administration and foreign ambassadors and they were received by a rather small numbers of members of the Grand Ducal Family: Grand Duke Henri and Grand Duchess Maria Teresa as well as Hereditary Grand Duke Guillaume and Hereditary Grand Duchess Stéphanie.

Both the Grand Duke and Hereditary Grand Duke looked their dashin selves sporting the Ordeer of the Gold Lion of the House of Nassau. Grand Duchess Maria Teresa wore a red gown by who seems to be her new favourite designer: Yves Dooms. I can't say I object cause this lacy number looks trés chic. The Grand Duchess also sported the Belgian Scroll Tiara and small diamond earrings.

Hereditary Grand Duchess Stéphanie wore a purple dress previously worn by her mother-in-law during a state visit to Sweden several years agon in 2008. I must say that I love the sentiment (always have, always will) but I find this to be a less than successful attempt at clothes sharing. It looked smashing on Maria Teresa almost ten years ago, but it would have needed a proper fitting for Stéphanie. On the tiara front, Hereditary Grand Duchess Stéphanie sported the Oval Amethyst Parure, she has worn twice before.

What else happened today? For our previous National Day coverage, have a look here.
