This trip was all about mix and match with some very simple pieces. On the third and last day in Japan Mary actually only changed her dress when attended dinner in the evening. We are heading the spring and summer time which means bright colors, pastel and dresse without tights. The trend everyone loves this summer is the sky blue/ice blue color and at the third day Mary wore a new dress in exact color! I haven’t been able to identify the dress yet. Maybe you can help? One of you sugessted a dress from Alberta Ferretti, well I haven’t found the right model yet. In the most elegant way she turn a blue dress into an wonderful, modern and classic outfit. She did it with some stunning accessories.

In her ears she wore ‘Winter Frost’ earrings created by Ole Lynggaard, we have seen them once before when King William-Alexander and Queen Maxima visited Denmark a few weeks ago. She’s also the owner of other earrings from the same collection. For me this is one of the best collection Lynggard makes, I’m so impressed of the design with the diamonds! Her hair-do showed her beautiful face and gave attention to the earrings – really great. With the machting suede pumps and clutch the look was complete. In the first post from this visit I suggested that her shoes is from Gianvito Rossi.

When attending the dinner with her husband the only thing she changes was the dress, to a purple reused dress. Do you think the grey suede accessory suited the blue or purple dress the best way? For me it looked so feminine with the ice blue dress and so modern in the other combination. Both worked so well. Her black pearl bracelet is of course the one from the goldsmith Marianne Dulong. Let us for a moment think back on the entire trip, I absolutely love how she has used the different parts in different ways. Love it! It is always exciting for us to see her wear the same thing several times and she has certainly done on this trip.

In yesterdays post I mentioned ‘culture’ as a factor when choosing the right clothes for a visit to Japan. And it does not get better then Mary wearing her colorful Mary Katrantzou dress with flowers on?! Right! This dress just have everything it takes to be the perfect dress for this visit. Don’t you love it? I love the fact that she is using her accessories again; day after day. It makes it more exciting for us because we get to see several differnet ways how to wear the same things and her suitcase become half as big. So clever. For instance she was wearing the nude patent Christian Louboutin pumps and her BOSS Hugo Boss suede clutch again. And all of it matched really well together. On the cruise in Tokyo Bay she wore a whit coat from Prada.

Many jewelry designers are using pearls in their collections this year, I’m thrilled because I think pearls are so beautiful and elegant. Mary often uses golden jewelry with white pearls, this was also what she did to make her outfit complete. Golden Marianne Dulong earrings with white freshwater pearl and on her finger a silver ring from the same designer (I once read that the ring was from her mother-in-law, it’s not).

The first outfit she wore:
If someone told me I had to go to Japan for three days with ministers and a 1000 photographers from around the world, I first of all would be scare but second I would not know what to wear at all. The japanies cultur is a bit differnent then in Danmark (nothing bad about that!!). Everything is just moving so fast in these contries such as the fashion. So what do you choose to wear? Well, what Mary did was wearing a outfit very clean and with simple accessories. Then you’re never wrong.
It’s the second time we see her in the double breasted Stella McCartney jacket with the pink snake pattern. With the black pants she showed  little winter and spring colors which I like. Sometimes it’s hard to chose whether you must wear only dark or bright colors – so why not mix them. Even though she did not envent something new, it works. To match the bright jacket she carried a beige, suede BOSS Hugo Boss clutch.

I was so sure she was wearing her beige/black ballet flats from Chanel but according to Royalista they comes from Prada. We thank them! She also wore her nude Christian Louboutin Simple Pump 100mm. What made this look more feminine was the shint diamond accessories. The small earrings and the ring on her right hand.

Stella McCartney Edwige Coat $ 1,799.00 Thanks to all of you who helped me with this coat, now I finally have more pictures and information’s about it! Features long sleeves, is double breasted, a round high neck and pockets on each side.

BOSS Hugo Boss Soada A beige clutch bag, design very simple with a removable strap. Features a button as closure. Made of suede.

Prada Black Cap-Toe Ballet Flats €557
With the help from the sweet reader, Chris, you now see the right model she was wearing. A beige Prada model, features a black patent leather cap toe and a beige bow. Made of patent leather.

The second outfit she wore:

Later the same day she changed to an really beautiful and feminine outfit. With the help from Lurdes (Treasures & Tiaras) I can tell that her nude sky blue lace dress with long sleeves, is from Dolce & Gabbana. Because the lack of pictures it’s a bit difficult to tell you which jewelry she was wearing. Some kind of aquamarine earrings. Grey Gianvito Rossi pumps. Maybe we get some more pictures tomorrow. I’m one of those girls who adore lace and pastel colors! For me this was the absolutely perfect outfit. With her she had a beige shawl and of course a grey suede clutch to match the pumps.

Dolce & Gabbana Sky blue lace dress with long sleeves
The wonderful dress is from D&G’s Autumn/Winter 2014 collection.

Gianvito Rossi Suede Point-Toe Pumps - Pump -
Gianvito Rossi Suede Point-Toe Pumps $765
Could this be the one she is wearing? Think the color is right. Made of suede.

I look forward to see the next days and what she will be wearing. Hope you are ready as well!

Our CP Mary Obsession #2

It is so amazing that so many of you want to participate in this. Sometimes I wonder if some people are afraid of telling others about their royal passion? For me it comes very natural or now I’m might be lying a bit because before I got the job at Royalista, only a few people actually knew I had a blog. But all knew that I love the Royals and follow them. I’m so thrilled that some of you don’t care and love to be a little royal, just like our next obsession post and this time we hear from a woman who comes from Mary’s homeland, the amazing Australia: say hallo and welcome to May! Are you as excited as I am to hear her story? Well here it comes.

In the first place, why did you choose to follow Crown Princess Mary the feature Queen of the little country Denmark? This is the first question May answered with these words:

“I'm Australian, so, it's the fairy tale that has captured my heart, interest and fascination. I enjoy following her fashion choices and I’m interested in how she handles her various roles as a woman, wife, mother, sister, daughter and future Queen”

For me one of the most interessting things is to know more about your Mary-addiction/hobby/obession so May tell me about it. How did it start?

“It all started with magazines and newspapers. Then the mandatory daily visits to my favourite royal websites for up to date reports on her movements etc. It has also led me to follow other royal couples around the world.” She also tells that: “I have travelled to many countries in Europe and always visit the palaces, where I can. I am interested in the history and royal stories over the past centuries. A really cool thing May has done is to visit several countries to see her facination in real life: “Over the years, I have been fortunate to visit London during Kate and Wills's wedding, then again during the birth of Prince George. I was in Stockholm last year for the King's birthday and was at the palace during the celebrations. In Copenhagen last year, I consulted the royal calendar and went to a function that Crown Princess Mary was attending to see her 'live'!”

When she went to Copenhagen to see Mary and the way she describes her is like in a Hollywood movie: “When she stepped out of the car, it was wow! She has such star quality, beauty and charisma.”

All good stories has a beginning and really wanted to know why has this become an addiction ot her? The answer she gave, which you of course can read below, is something I myself recognize. Maybe we both are a little crazy or just use too much time on the Royals…?

“It has become a daily habit and I feel like I know them personally!  It is also a matter of pride that my family and friends (although they tease me about it), consider me to be the 'expert' on royal matters.” I asked her what her loved once think of her interest in the Royals and the little obsession. I love the answer she gave: “They have a wry smile but they indulge in my obsession!”

So what is the next thing you plan to do with your Mary-addiction/hobby/obsession?

“I plan to visit Copenhagen again and see more royal sites and hopefully see the Royal family in person, would love to see Christian, Isabella and the twins. They are so cute!”

I must say that May is ambitious, even though I do not know her in person, but she wants to learn Danish. One of the most difficult language to learn because as she says: “It is frustrating watching Billed Bladet’s videos but not understanding what they say and it would be good to read the books and magazines without translation packages.” May, trust me you are not the only one out there who wants to do that. I feel a little lucky I do not need to learn it!

The last thing she writes is: “Of course, I would love to have a piece of fashion item that Mary has...maybe a Prada bag!” I hope you will be the owner of such a bag!

… the end …
