1. Norway's royal ladies collectively win this week's top spot for me. At a gala for members of parliament, Queen Sonja wore Queen Maud's Pearl Tiara and the Drapers' Company Brooch; Crown Princess Mette-Marit wore her diamond wedding tiara; and Princess Astrid wore Queen Alexandra's turquoises. Perfection!
