Sustainability and conscious choices stood out among the dresses worn at the Banquet. In the lead went the princess Victoria, who is queen Silvia's gown from the nobel Banquet in 1995.
fashion journalist Nina Campioni call Victoria's choice "absolutely incredible". The queen's Nina Ricci dress in gray, green and pink with a big bow on the back is "a smart choice, and once again shows that Victoria is a role model when it comes to thinking".
another who bet the environment was culture - and demokratiminister Alice Bah Kuhnke, who wore a dress created by sidenplagg submitted to the Stockholm Stadsmissions second hand stores. The dress will then be re-used even more then it is available for rent at Stockholms Stadsmission.
The buzz among the Nobelklänningarna was a veteran of the genre. Sara Danius design in orange and Schiaparellirosa with extra everything stuck out like an exploding flamingo among pingvinbergets frackprydda gentlemen. "Perhaps no man in the street will jump on or pull on an ordinary evening, but talk about cool and wonderful!", commented Nina Campioni.
Other trends was the color red, both the princess Sofia and fysikpristagaren Donna Strickland bar strong red dresses. Many also chose to emphasise the sleeves and shoulders, partly through the marked shoulders on the dresses, and partly by having only the shoulders.
