Surely an 'Imperial smile'.

She is as fashionable and good looking as ever!

I always wonder why the Japanese royal family dresses like it’s 1900. Like… the rest of the royal families in the world dress in modern fashion for the most part. Genuine curiosity, is it a mandatory thing, just like the style? Would be curious to know the actual reason.

I kinda like it

People of Japan are known for their dignified looks and pleasant manners. Empress Masako is showing the way. May good health and happiness accompany her each day of her life.

Well, Japan is probably the most conservative country in the world. Nothing ever changes here. Conservatism has some positive sides, but I think they push it a bit too far here.

No more empress Masko, finally we see her smile. Japanese are a bit slow on the uptake.
