Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden is one of those royals who can often slip under the radar when it comes to fashion.
Sure, the likes of Duchesses Catherine and Meghan often steal the show with their slew of incredible ensembles - but sometimes we need a good reminder that Victoria is right up there with them when it comes to the style stakes.
Oh, and her latest outfit is case in point.

Attending the revered Nobel Prize ceremony in Stokholm, Sweden on Tuesday, December 10, Crown Princess Victoria was joined by her parents King Carl Gustaf and Queen Silvia, as well as Prince Carl Philip and wife Princess Sofia for the glamorous event.
And while all of the royals looked incredible in their own right, it was the future Queen of Sweden's showstopping dress that really caught our eye.
Featuring a multitude of black and white embossed fabric, the stunning brunette's dress featured a unique puff sleeve on one shoulder, while the other was exposed with a falling sleeve which sat halfway down her upper arm.
The incredible dress is believed to be created by a Swedish-based designer, Selam Fessahaye, according to HELLO!.
To top off the dramatic look, the Princess wore a dazzling bejewelled headpiece, which is believed to be the Baden Fringe tiara.
Needless to say every eye in the house was drawn to Victoria's unique outfit choice - we're certainly coveting it!

Ever the style maven, Victoria's sister-in-law Princess Sofia also looked incredible for the event, opting for a teal blue off-shoulder gown which featured bold puff sleeves.
She wore her own stunning tiara with the ensemble - it featured an incredible set of diamonds, and was embellished with blue jewels that matched her dress to perfection.
In a rare display, the royal's unique upper back tattoo was also on show during the ceremony.

And as per usual, Queen Silvia was radiant as ever in a heavenly Elie Saab haute couture gown.
The stunning beige creation, which featured sheer detailing and floral print embellishing was absolute perfection on the Queen of Sweden.
There's no denying it, this family has some seriously good fashion sense!

The Nobel Prize is a highly anticipated event in Sweden each year.
Recognising those that have made incredible leaps and bounds in areas including chemistry, physiology and physics, the ceremony in Sweden brings together some of the world's most influential people.
The Nobel Peace Prize itself is usually awarded in Norway's Oslo - but that's not to say Sweden's event is any less glamorous.
The Swedish royals followed up the poignant ceremony with a banquet. Well and truly making the most of those impressive dresses!
