It's very nice to see how the Empress is honouring the national colours of the countries she visits by coordinating her clothes. In Sweden she wore a blue kimono with the gold obi rather than her usual pink kimono; I was wondering how she was going to handle the Lithuanian national colours, but the pink kimono with the green and gold obi was an elegant way to do it.

excellent observation, Elspeth! i didn't even notice that. now i have to go back to look at the pictures you described.

and Diog, it must be my screen but i can't see the red assymetrical lines, if indeed it has, the dress would look more elegant.

here's a very neat article about the empress's outfits in the Baltic States.

The Empress is excellent in courtesy.

The Emperor  was given the Lithuanian Grand Cross of the Order of Vytautas the Great, --- in return, the Emperor gave the Lithuanian President the Japanese Order of the Chrysanthemum.

I wonder if Israel honored Mr. Chiune Sugihara for his humanitarian act for the Lithuanian jews?

For both the Japanese and western wedding outfits, there's no real difference between the Empress and her daughters in law. You can't tell whether you're looking at the 1950s or the 1990s in those pictures.

i know. i'm so confused on their styles of gowns though. they all look like the fairytale princesses when they finally appear in state functions. is it a japanese take, or just the IHA's antiquated policy?

Well, the Japanese formal kimono is based on the clothes that were worn during the Heian period, which is more than 1000 years ago now.

http://www.iz2.or.jp/engl...fukusyoku/wayou/index.htm

My husband has visited Japan quite a lot for his work, and he said that the Japanese seem to be very impressed with 1950s-era American culture, which may be why the western-style wedding clothes look the same now as they did in the 1950s. If you look at websites of Japanese wedding clothes (which I do quite a lot because I collect wedding kimono), you can see that the western-style white dresses and cocktail dresses are really quite old-fashioned by our standards.

I like the Empress's dresses as well. But you forgot to mention those cute, little dish hats she wears! I could never get away with wearing them but they look nice on her. I like how she matches them to her outfits or location. I loved it when she wore a giant shamrock on her hat when she visited Ireland last year!

In general I like the way the Japanese royals dress. They may not follow fashion trends but they are always immaculately dressed and ladylike.
