It depends on the visual awareness of 'profile completeness' to be useful to the users needs. I don't know the exact business domain you're dealing with, but there are some cases where there are useful attributes that aren't required, but are helpful to know (or at least understand what's not complete). Things like 'mobile phone' might be good to see blank, ...

Probably the two key deciding factors for me would be (other than the physical space available to display the information, which affects readability): use case for the information level of accuracy required You will find that if it is just something that allows the user to take a quick glance and perhaps to do something quickly, then the graphical ...

a third solution is to include the required information into the field captions and not use the labels. More elegant. Be sure to use a color code to facilitate the idea of "not filled" and "filled". The grey VS black model is something common.

So you would need to do something with the focus or a live region to ensure that the user is informed....

I think the way I'd look at this is that a status label is communicating a single piece of information (in your example a status) but a label is potentially communicating several concepts together e.g. Active & Beginner Both have the capability to include semantic colouring, but I wouldn't rely on that alone to communicate the message. You could happily ...

I think you are close to two good options; in both options, you'll want to remove the "Delete" button next to the first dropdown (allowing the user to delete additional dropdowns, but not the first one.) You say that language isn't important, but you might want the Add button to be more like "Add additional country". The version on the ...
