When I first discovered Mary's attendance at the Design Awards 2016 I have really been looking forward to the 22nd of September. Now, working with design almost everyday this award show has been so interesting to watch. Great to see who would win and the nominated designs. For Mary to attend the show is making it even better. Two of my favourite things gathered at one event. It is the interior magazines BO BEDRE, Bolig Magasinet and Costume Living who hosted the show in People's Theatre, in downtown Copenhagen. At the arrival, as guest of honor, she was warmly welcomed and guided to her seat from where she later entered the stage presenting Designer of the Year. The award was then given to the company Norm Architects. Congratulations from me to Norm Architects and all the other winners, here! By the way this is the first time Mary is present at this award show. Seems like they all had a wonderful evening with much to celebrate.

These days Mary keeps impressing, and surprising, me with her outfits! First thing I noticed is that it seems like she enjoys wearing lots of prints lately. Am I the only one noticed that? Nothing bad, I love it. Think it's great she teaches us to wear prints and patterns more often. More important how to wear them. This new black printed maxi dress can only be described with one word: elegant. Without looking overdressed she accessorized the new Alice + Olivia maxi dress with golden earrings from Dulong Fine Jewelry featuring plenty of diamonds and a brand new Georg Jensen collier. It was a Royals & Fashion I found the ID on her dress, just to make sure then I wasn't the one identifying it. Actually I think it's the first time we see Mary in their design. I often wondered if we would ever see her in one of their creations and now we have. Reminds me a lot of her Etro gown, especially because of the print. Do you like it? Perfectly matching the dress she had chosen a bright blue Prada clutch and a few bracelets from among others Cartier. She also dazzled in a pair of new black sandals which was, also, identified by Royals & Fashion as Aquarzzura. I'd never heard of Aquarzzura before but I have already fallen in love with their shoes. This model was made in collaboration by Aquarzzura and Poppy Delevingne -therefor Aquarzzura (x Poppy Delevingne). I also noticed her wearing some kind of dusty lilac nail polish.  Even though I had hoped for some kind of glamours updo, this will do. Lovely curls!

Day 3. United Nations' General Assembly in New York

Wednesday, September 21st

As member of the United Nations Population Fund is Crown Princess Mary in New York from September 19-21st to attend the United Nations' General Assembly (UNGA).

Program: New York
  • 8:15 am. Crown Princess Mary spoke at Deliver for Good: Investments in Girls and Women to Achieve the SGSs. 
  • 11:30 am. The Crown Princess attended a guided tour in the Great Northern Food Hall 

This her third, and last, day in New York. Since Monday 19th Mary has been in New York. As member of the UN's Population Fund has she attended United Nations' General Assembly or abbreviated to UNGA. From early morning Mary was on the go. First she attended Deliver for Good: Investments in Girls and Women to Achieve the SGSs where she gave a speech and was highly committed to the panel discussion. The meeting was followed by a visit to the Great Northern Food Hall couple of hours later. The Great Northern Food Hall opened in June 2016, aiming to promote northern food in New York and comes as idea from chef Claus Meyer. She attended the Great Northern Food Hall along with Prime Minister Lars Løkke Rasmussen and Claus Meyer himself. Judging from their faces and smiles, seems like it was a great experience for all of them. 

Two pieces of clothes I never get tired of! The white v-neck blouse and full floral skirt embraces her figure beautifully. We have seen both the Hugo Boss blouse and Dolce & Gabbana skirt before, even together at a visit to Africa, I believe in 2015. Sure you remember it more precise than I do. I have never been good at floral printed skirt but since Mary wore this the first time, I've been in love with them. Can't get enough of them now. So I'm thrilled she's wearing it again. Her outfit was styled with a new necklace and a pair of golden hoop earrings from Dulong Fine Jewelry featuring lots of sparkly diamonds. About the necklace, then I haven't been able to get a good view because the lack a good pictures. Doesn't look like something she usually wears. Think I see a ring on her right hand but I can't identify which one. Of course she was wearing shoes as well but I only get a short glimpse. According to Royal & Fashion Mary wore a pair of new Gianvito Rossi pumps and I think she has found exactly the pair she was wearing. But take a closer look and let me know what you think. You do not hear me complain, still I would love to have seen her hair in some kind of updo or maybe some curls. Anything actually. 

...and Mary is now back in Denmark after three great days in New York.

Day 2. United Nations' General Assembly in New York

Tuesday, September 20th

Crown Princess Mary is in New York from September 19-21st to attend the United Nations' General Assembly (UNGA).

Program: New York
  • 7:15 am. Crown Princess Mary attended the meeting World Leaders x Young Leaders side event along with among others Foreign Minister Kristian Jensen. 
  • 8:30 am. Crown Princess Mary was present, as member, at a meeting with High Level Task Force for ICPD.
  • 11:00 am. The Crown Princess attended the meeting Girl, Uninterrupted: Increasing Opportunity During Adolescence.
  • 1:15 pm. Crown Princess Mary spoke at Stakeholder Commitments to Safeguard Maternal Helath During Humanitarin Crises: Presentation of the 'Safe Birth Even Here' Campaign as patron of UNFPA. 
  • 5:30 pm. The Crown Princess Mary attended the reception Celebrating progress toward ending child marriage.

Along with both young leaders, representatives from among others governments, the private sector and academia, the Crown Princess attended morning meal at 7:15 am local time that gave all of them the opportunity to exchange experiences and knowledge which was the main reason why they were all gathered over a common meal. With paper and pen she, very committed, attended a meeting with High Level Task Force for ICPD which she is also member of and has been since 2012. In the afternoon it was time for her to participate the Stakeholder Commitments to Safeguard Maternal Helath During Humanitarin Crises: Presentation of the 'Safe Birth Even Here' Campaign as patron of UNFPA where she gave a speech. At this meeting she was sitting next to the Executive Director of the United Nations Population Fund, Dr. Babatunde Osotimehin, whom she met with after the meeting. It was at a reception at 5:30 pm local time she attended Tuesday's final event. I bet such conferences is worth a lot for attendances as Mary and of course all the other representatives taking part in some of the events in New York. 

I doubt I have to say that of course the cause of matter is way more important than Mary's new dress. But to make sure, I want you to know that her committment is worth much more than what she's wearing. End of story. Most were dressed in classy black blazers, white and grey. Simple, minimalistic colours, much use by Scandinavian women. Not Mary. The Crown Princess radiated in a brand new, bright red dress! Featuring a print I had a hard time figuring out what it should look like. First I thought about exotic birds. What was your first thought? It was at Royals & Fashion that I learned it is from ba&sh. A brand she has worn once before. Really interesting print. The more I look at it, I think it looks like flowers. What a strong dress to wear at a conference like this. Would love to see what shoes she wore but I have not been able to find a photo that shows them. It was with jewellery from Dulong Fine Jewelry and Cartier she styled her outfit. Oh... and of course the stunning beige (maybe even nude) leather bag from Prada. A strong, though quite casual look on her second day in New York.

Day 1. United Nations' General Assembly in New York

Monday, September 19th

From September 19-21st is Crown Princess Mary present at the United Nations' General Assembly (UNGAin New York.

Program: New York
  • 7:00 pm. Crown Princess Mary attended the reception Celebrating Solutions. Keeping up momentum for girls & women organized by Women Deliver. 1

Three busy days were ahead of Mary when she on monday arrived to New York to attend UNGA - United Nations' General Assembly. She is accompanied by Foreign Minister Kristian Jensen. They were both guests of honor to attend a reception with Women Deliver in the evening. Here they attended the launch of a new campaign entitled Deliver for Good focusing on girls and women's rights and health. According to Billed Bladet, hundred ideas and solutions from the Women Deliver conference, hosted by Denmark couple of months ago, were presented at the reception. Mary is present at several meeting and other activities during the three days in New York. The Crown Princess is not the only royal family member attending, also Crown Princess Victoria and Princess Madeleine of Sweden, King Abdullah and Queen Rania of Jordan, King Felipe and Queen Letizia of Spain are attending UNGA. So, as you see, our Crown Princess is not the only one committed to make a difference.

It was more of a private reception she attended in the evening. Only a few picture have been published which makes it way more complicated to identify what she actually was wearing representing Denmark in New York. What I see is a brand new horizontal striped skirt and a sleeveless black blouse. Because the lack of quality photos haven't I been able to identify the skirt but it looks very interesting. Any ideas? Let me know what you have in mind. Think she is wearing a thin black belt to embrace her waistline. About the blouse. Well I have no ID, yet, but I am pretty sure it is the same as the one she wore attending the INDEX: Award 2015, here. What do you say? -Is it the same. To me they look quite similar. No photos showing her feet, so unfortunately I can't tell you anything about her shoes. My guess would we a pair of black pointed pumps, maybe from SAND Copenhagen or Gianvito Rossi. This time I'm only able to ID two bracelets which are from Dulong Fine Jewelry and Cartier. Am I just the only one or would you love to have you own Love Bracelet from Cartier? When looking at her earrings I think it could be a pair of golden earrings from Dulong Fine Jewelry. Great way to start a three days visit.
