Angry Birds, I’m pretty sure everyone reading this has at the very least heard of the game. The mobile gaming hit has been downloaded millions upon millions of times. Yet, I’m pretty sure there’s only one of this dress. Not only is there one, but it was worn during the Finnish Independence Day celebration at the Finnish Presidential Palace.

Think of the coverage we provide the United States Independence Day, and then all of sudden you start feeling bad for this woman. Judging by her many facial expressions in the pictures, this wasn’t her idea. Or maybe it was, and she got a kick out of the whole thing. For anyone who has any kind of eye for fashion, probably doubts that.

The pictures are almost painful.

    Finns are not smiling all the time like Americans do. You don’t usually see anyone smiling in the line to greet the president. Unless you’re a politician or a director of an important organization (and therefore getting invited just about every year), it’s often a once-in-a-lifetime event to get invited. You know that in just about every Finnish household they are watching the gala on TV, criticizing people’s etiquette mistakes and clothes and you’re just about to shake hands with the President and her spouse (our current President is female). So I think people are a bit nervous, which makes them even less likely to smile.

    She’s looking happy in the picture where she’s shaking hands with the President’s husband. And in another interview piece later in the evening when the official greetings part is over and everybody is more relaxed, she’s smiling in a very pretty way. Even an American would recognize that expression as a happy face. But I do admit that you pretty much have to be a Finn to recognize her happiness in these pictures.

      She looked particularly nervous compared to the other beautiful women that was there! So I wouldn´t say Finns don´t smile, many were smiling and enjoying themselves while waiting :) But it´s probably pretty boring waiting for ages in line before you can shake hands with the president for 2 seconds. So that´s probably one reason that people look a bit concentrated :) But very brave of here to wear that dress!
