Märtha's dress for sale
The Princess donated the dress to UNICEFs 50 years jubilee auction, which started Thursday, and the bids have already started to come in on the much discussed dress.
International media hated the bright yellow dress the Princess wore to the wedding of Crown Prince Felipe and Letizia Ortiz in the end of May of last year.
Negative adjectives like horrid, vulgar, improper and canary yellow were used, but the Norwegian fashion expert Kiki Sørum claimed the colorful dress was a brave choice.
«She is brave and dares to be herself,» said Sørum to VG after the wedding in Spain.
«I think she should get credit for that. In contrast to Mette-Marit, Märtha dares to look different. I think Princess Märtha Louise tops the ranking of the fashion princesses in Europe.»
The dress is in the size 36-38 and is designed by Tuilp & Tatamo. UNICEF hopes the dress will collect at least NOK 30,000 (USD 4,725).
Princess Märtha is the ambassador of UNICEF in Norway, and in the end of October, she visited the organizations head quarters in New York City.
A number of Norwegian artists have contributed with artwork to the UNICEF auction which ends November 18.
