  4. I was at Court Pomp in May. Although I was expecting a much larger showcase, the exhibition was amazing! The gowns, the jeweleries... I was totally blown away. I wish we have some thing like that in my country.

  5. Oooh, thanks so much for the images. It was the most beautiful show I've seen. (Except maybe the Met's Dangerous Liaisons.)

  6. I was there but was a bit disappointed. It was definately to crowded, to dark, without any fresh air to concentrate on the displays. I was already very tired from visiting the palace, I should have vistited the exhibition first. But I bought the exhibition catalogue, so I can check on all the details I missed, while I rushed through.
