Mary's 9 Most Memorable

October 8th 2003: This was truly a special day. Finally the two of them were ready to show their love to the rest of the world on a press conference at Amalienborg, announcing their engagement. October 8th is one of many memorable days also when it comes to most memorable outfits. Feminine curls, rosy cheeks, that champaign coloured Kenth Fredin dress with matching coat and Valentino pumps in the same wonderful brown colour. The first day of many incredible outfits!

May 13th 2004: Yet another magnificent pre-wedding outfit we must never forget, is this bright red evening gown featuring that huge bow the back of the dress designed by Uffe Frank and tailored by Birgit Hallstein. With perfectly matching red shoes and Queen Ingrids ruby parure this is truly a remarkable outfit that will always make me impressed.

May 14th 2004: This might be the biggest of them all! Her ivory wedding gown. Like the red evening gown is her wedding dress designed and created by Uffe Frank and Birgit Hallstein in collaboration with the bride (of course). The gown is a mix of 100 year old lace, pure silk, innovative sleeves and edgy layers. Paring both past and present, Mary's wedding gown will be one of my favourite royal wedding dresses.

October 18th 2005: Around two years, after their engagement, we have this memorable day when a proud and extremely happy Crown Prince couple showed their first born son to the rest of the world. Despite this was only three days after she had given birth to Prince Christian, she was beautifully dressed in a classic black dress with matching tights and low pointed pumps And of course the kerosene coloured Hugo Boss coat.

January 23rd 2006: Three months later is was time to invite friends and family to the christening of their new little prince which was name Christian Valdemar Henry John. Her first child and the first christening of her own four children. Mary was in the most adorable dusty blue blazer featuring a white hemline and a printed Hugo Boss skirt. A very typical 2005/2006 Mary-outfit. It was also the first time we saw her floral hair piece which, by the way, perfectly matched the Yves Saint Laurent pumps. On behalf of the christening, Mary received the brooch as a gift from her mother-in-law Queen Margrethe. No doubt that it was a memorable day.

April 23rd 2007: The following year a little princess was born a few days after her grandmother the Queen of Denmark. Radiant as a shiny star Mary adored me and everybody else in a dusty Hugo Boss blouse, dark jeans and Prada pumps. Throughout the pregnancy her hair was short, a hairstyle I sometimes miss very much. Casual and stylish at the time only a few days after she'd given birth to her second child. Still, after nine years this is one of my most beloved memorable outfits.

July 1st 2007: Here we have an ultra feminine and pretty outfit I will never forget. Dusty colours seems to be a favourite choice for Mary at christenings and this dusty purple dress makes everything perfect -3/4 sheer sleeves, fine pleating at front and a lovely round neckline. Quite some years ago Mary found out who well nude/beige goes with colours and this is a brilliant example. What makes her outfit so feminine is sure the Rasoulinia peep-toe pumps and floral hairpiece from Salon by Malene Birger as seen the year before. Almost delicately she had chosen a necklace and a ring from Dulong Fine Jewelry such as a pair of diamond earrings. Very romantic.

January 14th 2011: For sure it came as a surprise to everybody when we were told that the Crown Princess was expecting twins! I almost freaked out when I found out. Nine months later the most adorable Prince and Princess were born. Proudly the twins met the world press carried by their mom and dad, who were clearly moved by the situations. It was with glistening eyes, matching rosy cheeks and a ruffle blouse such as a long black cardigan and trousers Mary warmed my heart on this memorable day.

April 14th 2011: At previous christenings Mary was dressed in dusty colours, feminine prints and romantic materials but this time everything was completely different. Almost, because once again she wore her Salon by Malene Birger hairpiece to make her 60s updo even more magnificent! When the twins were christened and given the names Vincent and Josephine, Mary was wearing a still unidentified bright blue dress. Everything classic, maybe even vintage style, we know and love was gathered for the party: white pearl earrings, the inherited brooch and not to forget her nude Prada pumps. Good-looking, mature and on the top of her game Mary impressed everyone in her eye catching outfit.

Reception for Danish Athletes

Friday, October 14th

Crown Princess Mary attended, along with Prince Christian and Princess Isabella, a reception for Danish athletes having participate in the Olympics and Paralympic in Rio de Janeiro. The reception took place at Christiansborg Castle. Queen Margrethe, Prince Joachim, Princess Marie and Princess Benedikte were also present at the reception. 1

More than 200 Danish athletes, coaches and representatives of the Olympics and Paralympic were invited by Queen Margrethe to attend a reception at Christiansborg Palace on occasion of their participation at the Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, couple of months ago. One by one the guests arrived just as the royal family did around 12:30 pm. local time. First Princess Benedikte, then Prince Joachim and his lovely wife Princess Marie, followed by Crown Princess Mary who arrived accompanied by Prince Christian and his sister Princess Isabella. The Queen arrived as the last just as as rules prescribe. The Crown Prince has been involved in an accident on a trampoline which is why he wasn't attending as scheduled. It caused a fracture of the cervical spine. The fracture is treated with a neck collar, one he should be wearing for about 12 weeks.The best of luck from me. Hopefully he will get better soon.
  Instead we had the pleasure of two of his lovely children at the reception which by the way was broadcasted live on Danish television. All the guests were welcomed with a handshake from the attending royals including the young prince and princess, standing right next to their beautiful mother. It was the Queen who gave a welcome speech in the Drabantsalen where the reception were taking place -you know the room with the amazing black/white floor and where the walls are covered with colourful tapestries.

Note that this event was the day before Prince Christian turned 11 years old, but of course you. The reason why these two posts got all mixed up is because I've been a little behind writing the last week. 

No doubt that a lace lover like me adore Mary's new dark red lace dress! Simply magnificent. First thing I noticed was how perfectly she matched the colour on the wall where all the guests were welcomed. And even the Queen, Princess Benedikte and Princess Marie were wearing red outfits. It has been suggested that her new dress is from Dolce & Gabbana (Royals & Fashion) and to me the two models look as similar as possible -the neckline, cuffs, length etc. everything looks the same. Apparently this dress has been seen on Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge at at previous event, here. At the arrival to reception she was wearing her woolen grey JOSEPH coat. Grey and red what a match! Looks really amazing. Don't you think? She paired the outfit with beige Gianvito Rossi pointed pumps and a dark grey Naledi Copenhagen clutch. Another trick I have learned admiring Mary and her style for so many years, is how great pale and bright colours go together. Somehow it just look so stylish. Beautifully she embraced the glamorous style with a diamond brooch, earrings and a few rings. I wouldn't mind seeing this outfits again one day.

Psychiatry Foundation's 20th Anniversary

Monday, October 10th

Crown Princess Mary attended the 20th anniversary celebration for the Psychiatry Foundation.

About four hours after the Crown Prince and she unofficially payed a visit to the House of Industry and Danish Industry, here, in Copenhagen Mary was on duty again to attend the Psychiatry Foundation's 20th anniversary as patron of the foundation and guest of honor. October 10th is also the day where the WHO's World Mental Health Day is taking place to increase awareness of, among others, mental illnesses. As earlier in the morning, she was in a brilliant mood and seemed to had been looking forward to participate in the celebration of the 20th anniversary. During the visit, several speeches were given and various presentations of the foundation's work. It was with great interest Mary listened. Afterwards she got the opportunity to meet some of the participants at the anniversary. I wish the Psychiatry Foundation congratulations on behalf of the anniversary!

With relatively few hours in between the two events, the Crown Princess has chosen not to change clothes and why should she when this outfit is so damn perfect? The best pictures were taken on arrival where she has her Massimo Dutti coat on which you know is reversible. I would very much well like to see a picture of her without her coat, but I could not find one. The reason is that I want to see how it looks with the Prada blouse and Chloé skirt as an outfit. Like earlier in the day, she had shoes on from Lanvin and tights in the same dark blue colour. What wasn't clear to me earlier is that Mary also wore two diamond rings from Ole Lynggaard Copenhagen and a rather large Dulong Fine Jewelry black pearl bracelet worn a countless occasions before this one. As her outfit; I believe it was a tremendous day with plenty of time to celebrate the Psychiatry Foundation and their incredible work. 

Coat: Massimo Dutti Reversible Coat
Blouse: Prada Front Pleated Blouse
