December has arrived to Denmark and the turtleneck is back. In the winter and fall Mary wear them regularly, at the Christmas concert a white one, and believe me when I say; you can't live without them when you have had one. With focus on her upper body, she had chosen to wear one of my favourite short jackets from Mauro Grifoni, as we saw her in at a football games with Prince Christian. If I'm correct, it was worn with the same white turtleneck. The lower part of her body was in dark colours - black trousers and black ankle boots from Mulberry.

As usual, Mary received a beautiful bouquet when she arrived to the church. From the arrival to the leaving both Princess Isabella and her sister Princess Josephine got the chance to carry Mary's wonderful flower bouquet. So sweet.

I would so much like to copy her outfit from the concert, its simple and modern. The look would be great for any occasion. She added a brand new blue suede bag to the outfit and thanks to Charlotte we know that it's from Sergio Rossi Spring/Summer 2012. As far as I know this is the first bag from that designer. I could be wrong.

Reception at Amalienborg

November, 10th


Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary welcomed the Danish participants of the Paralympics 2012. The reception took place at Amalienborg Palace, the Crown Prince couple's home.



Both Frederik and Mary smiled and gentle welcomed all the Danish participants who participated the Paralympics 2012, when they arrived to a reception at Amalienborg Palace. Mary was dressed in the classic little-black dress, hers is from Elise Gug (2012). With a Celine belt the fitted dress showed her slim figure. It features a little detail at front near the neckline. In black patent leather she wore characteristic Manolo Blahnik shoes featuring a pointed toe which seems to be Mary's favourite shoe-shape. Her shoulder length hair was wavy in the tips; a classic and usable hairstyle she wears pretty often. Most of her outfit was kept in the black shades but one piece caught my eyes - the pink Jewlscph earrings. A thing to remember when you dress up in black, add one or two pieces of accessory with a little colour like the bright pink as Mary did.

Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary; their day in Hong Kong



The day started at the Red Brick Art Museum. Just as the name of the museum Mary wore a bright red Diane Von Furstenberg jacket. Super chic! She really know how to wear a red jacket and since red is one of my favourite colours it made me happy to see her in it. I think red looks great an any woman, we need to wear it much more. Red symbolize strength and power. Underneath the red coat she was wearing an old dress worn in 2004 on a cruise with the Royal yacht Dannebrog. It still fit her perfectly. I'm pretty sure I would have chosen to wear another jacket to the dress... I like both pieces separate from each other. Also her shoes are a bit old, they are from her engagement with Frederik of course you al remember them, the Valentino shoes with the black cap-toe. She carried a black ostrich Naledi Copenhagen clutch.

From one moment to another it suddenly the weather changed and it became windy and cold. Luckily, Mary brought with her a brown fur scarf to keep her warm.

Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary attended a gala dinner

Finally we see Mary in a new dress and this new Elise Gug (2012) dress is the perfect gown for an evening dinner! It's a rare thing for her to wear a new gown, Elise Gug did a great job designing this with the lace skirt and velvet belt. A wonderful evening dress! Her hair was beautifully made in a hairdo and in the ears she wore stunning diamond custom-made earrings from Marianne Dulong. I think her pumps could be her black satin pumps from Prada. I'm overwhelmed by her beauty. Think this was a great way to end their trip to China. Thanks for reading and hope you enjoyed following the visit with me.

On such a trip like this to China I'm ready 24/7 to see all the latest pictures and read several articles from their visits and follow them to see what they are doing (not in a stalker way!). Wait, that's what I almost do every times she's somewhere. Today in Hong Kong both Frederik and Mary were in a really good mood, think they had a great time together visiting one of the world biggest cities. The beautiful Mary was dress wonderful as always in a navy blue fitted SAND (Fall 2012) dress! If was identified by Charlotte, Kate and Lurdes. Thanks to all of you. I think the dress is nice and gives the opportunity to mix and match it will every colour she fancy. From the same designer she wore a navy blue jacket. Her clutch, Rika, and pumps, Prada, featured the same bordeaux colour and was a great choice to the dress and jacket.

I imagen that she picked all of her Georg Jensen jewellery and packed them into her bag before leaving to China because both earrings, brooch, bracelet and ring on her finger come from Georg Jensen. One of my personal favourite jewellery designers we have in Denmark. Earrings and the beautiful handmade brooch are from the Moonlight Blossom collection and are both new. The ring is a part of the Moonlight Grapes collection.

Can't wait till tomorrow to see what she'll be wearing!

I really have been looking forward to this trip as any other trip and my heart almost stopped beating when I saw her in the electric blue Malene Birger dress. It's not that special at all but with the combination of the shoes and jewellery, her look was outstanding. Earrings, bracelet and the necklace are both from the Danish jewellery designer Marianne Dulong. The thin gold bracelet with diamonds comes from Georg Jensen. So many great Danish designers on one woman! Then there is the shark grey Naledi Copenhagen clutch. Hope that the next few days will be as good as this one. Tonight they'll attend a gala dinner.

Gala dinner

A good old colourful Ole Yde dress made Mary look stunning at the gala dinner next to her husband dressed in a classic suit with a black tie. This dress expressed so much elegance, I can't hide that Ole Yde always surprise me with his collections and whatever she design I'm a fan of. Such as the golden colour in the dress, she wore gold earrings from Marianne Dulong with diamond pendant. Her smile and sparkling eye made her face glove. In light pink satin she wore a clutch from Prada, an old one and used several times before throughout the years. A classic clutch. Then we head directly to the glitter Gianvito Rossi heeled sandals, new. When I look closely I don't like them at all. The mix of the green and pink colour is so just not my style. Well, it's despite the fact that I don't like the colours, a great match to the dress. Mary wore them so beautifully.

Ballet: The Nutcracker

November, 25

Queen Margrethe invited the entire family to Tivoli to see Nøddeknækkeren (The Nutcracker). The Queen herself has designed the scenography and all the costumes for the ballet.

The Nutcracker...
... is a two-act ballet which original is choreographed by Marius Petipa and Lev Ivanov. The story comes from The Nutcracker and the Mouse King by E. T. A. Hoffmann. I had premiere in St. Petersburg, 1892 at the Mariinsky Theatre.

With her husband and children, Mary attended The Nutcracker ballet dressed in a new (?) light blue jacket. This jacket matched perfectly her mother-in-laws blue jewellery. As a mother you need a practical handbag, Mary's is differently this one she wore at the ballet - the black Bottega Veneta bag. On her feet she wore a pair of black boots.

Bag: Bottega Veneta Bag in Black

The Ruby Parure is Now Photographed!


You remember when I made the post about 'The Ruby Parure' which Mary now owns, inherited from Queen Ingrid. When the broadcast 'The Royal Jewels' (De Kongelige Juveler) was made by DR, they got special permission to photograph the jewelry that normally are locked inside a box.


Anna Von Lowzow took part in the process of making the broadcast. She's Danish organize and director of Nordic films (Nordisk Film) and has helped to make several different historical documentaries of the Danish Royal family. HERE you can read a bit more about the project with the Royal jewels.

   
The changes have been done by the goldsmith Marianne Dulong, a designer you have heard a million times here on the blog because Mary is a fan of had jewelry and have several pieces. A 3 minutes video have been made and shows some really great pictures of her work that has been done. To you who love Mary and her Marianne Dulong jewelry, take the time and see it; HERE. It is the goldsmith Klaus Kromann and Per Dirksen who have made the transformation and they did a great job with the parure!

Netwerk: A Project from The Mary Foundation

November, 22

Crown Princess Mary attended, as patron for the Mary Foundation, the launch of project Netwerk on Falkonergårdens School in Frederiksberg.

What is the Netwerk project about?
Netwerk was established in coloration with Ventilen and the Lauritzen Foundation as the first project to prevent loneliness among young people which has become a bigger problem in Denmark then every seen before. Read more about Netwerk here.

This most be a huge day to Mary, her foundation is about the help young people in Denmark with their new project Netwerk. I really hope it will become a success and help lots of young people and prevent the increase number of them felling lonely. Mary was in a great mood when she arrived to the Falkonergårdens School in Frederiksberg wearing her navy blue SAND (Fall 2012) jacket with black trousers. The jacket has been identified by Pernille. We thank her! The navy blue color is great on her! You might remember the blouse she was wearing underneath the new jacket, well its her old silk Prada blouse from 2005. My sharp eyes noticed that she wore her light blue square Marianne Dulong earrings. She was also wearing a blue ring such as new suede ankle boots thought to be By Larin. A closer look learned me that the two models are not the same -different seams. Still I think her new navy blue boots look simply great to the rest of her outfit. Oh now I almost forgot to mention the black Bottega Veneta handbag she carried over her left arm.

History: The Blue Sapphire Brooch


This time we open Mary's jewellery box once again and find the Blue Connaught Sapphire Brooch. 

The story of the brooch goes back to when the Prussian Princess Louise Margaret in 1879 married the Prince Arthur, Duke of Connaught. One of the gift she received was the blue sapphire brooch. Princess Louise Margaret gave it to her daughter, Princess Margaret of Connaught and she brought it with her to Sweden when she married Prince Gustaf VI Adolf of Sweden.

Princess Louise Margaret of Connaught

Princess Margaret give birth to her only daughter Princess Ingrid of Sweden, future Queen of Denmark. When Ingrid is 10,  years old (in 1920) her mother dies only 38 years old and she inherits the brooch after her. 

            # Princess Margaret's nickname was Daisy, like Queen Margrethe II of Denmark


At some point Queen Ingrid gave the brooch to her daughter Queen Margrethe II before her death which might be because she would like to see the next generation wear it. Unlike her mother she did not wear the brooch very often. One time was back in 1999 at the christening of Prince Joachim and Alexandra's oldest son, Prince Nikolai.  

Wedding of Princess Margaret of Connaught and Prince Gustaf VI

In 2006, on January 21, Crown Princess Mary wore it first time at her firstborn son, Prince Christian Valdemar Henri John's christening. Crown Princess Mary is the wife of Crown Princess Frederik of Denmark, the oldest son of Queen Margrethe II and Prince Henrik. Since then, she has worn the Connaught brooch multiple times at christenings, gala dinners, at new years eve etc. Queen Margarethe handed it over to Mary as a present. A long history in a small piece of jewellery.

In the middle of the brooch is a large blue sapphire. Around the blue sapphire are diamonds and two pendants of white pearl are hanging underneath the blue stone. Right under, a small pendant made of diamonds and a pearl is hanging. A beautiful piece of work.

That's how to do it Mary! In her work with the Mary Foundation, it's important to her that we talk about subjects like this.

The last day she was dressed in a white T-shit and her blue Signe Bøgelund-Jensen A-line skirt with a pair of beige patent wedges from L.K. Bennett. Then it's not getting any better, am I right?

Visiting the Dondo hospital and community she was wearing a new, pink printed Heartmade shirt, a pair of grey trousers and ballet flats. Not to mention the large Susanne Juul hat she wore on her head to protection from the african sun. The hat has been identified by RoyalOutfits.  Even though the shirt and hat is from two very different designer their colours match very well. Once again, on her wrist she wore the snake skin Ole Lynggaard bracelet and pink square earrings from Marianne Dulong. Mary carried a light brown Prada bag.

I love when she surprises us with something unexpected! The Diane Von Furstenberg-dress is a tropical and classic wrap dress from the designer. It was found by both Pernille, Kate, RoyalOutfits and Cristina. Thanks to all of you! I would not be able to do this without all of you, of all my heart -Thanks.

On the third day she was dress in her old yellow Hugo Boss dress. Every time I see it makes me so happy! Even though the hairstyle was more then simple it made her look so beautiful.

,The man with the golden gun' is a title of a James Bond movie, at the dinner it must have been The man with the golden women, that's because Mary was glowing like a real princess in a completely gold outfit, form head to toe. A stunning couple! Frederik in his classic black and white suit and Mary with all her golden dress and jacket. Neither of them are new but it's a long time since we have seen it and I'm pretty sure not in the combination with each other. You all know I have something with hairdos and at the evening dinner I could not stop looking at her hair, it's so beautiful. Goes well together with the elegant outfit. To match the 'gold style' she had also chosen golden accessories with a touch of snake on the Judith Leiber clutch. The earrings, Figaros Bryllup, we saw a few month ago when she visited Russia. She wore a light red lipgloss as a perfect match to the rosa satin pumps from Chrisitan Louboutin.

Goodbye to the Master of Ceremonies

October, 5

Some weeks ago the Royal Master of Ceremonies, Christian Eugen-Olsen, retired. At that time no pictures had been published that's why you get the post now. Even though I'm sure it was a sad day for all, Mary was really well-dressed in a brand new dark green and creamy By Malene Birger blouse with a polished look. With some help from the one and only Pernille I can tell that her new pencil skirt, in the amazing dark grey colour, is from the Danish designer Elise Gug (Fall/Winter 2012). Last but not least, the grey ball earrings comes from Jewlscph in oxidized silver. They are pretty old and it has taken me years and years to actually find them. We thank Christian Eugen-Olsen for some good years!

Christmas Seal Homes for 100 year

October, 29

Crown Princess Mary attended the launch of this years christmas stamp 2012 which is designed by Carl Quist Møller. She's the patron of the Christmas Seal Homes (Julemærkehjem). This is also the 100 year of anniversary for the stamps - 1912 to 2012.

What is the Christmas Seal Homes?
In Denmark we have four of these homes for children who struggles with social isolation and bullying. Each year over 750 children, in the age of 7-14 years old, get help from the Christmas Sea Homes. The children stays there for 10 weeks and does also learn about eating health food and what excise is good for. The money from the selling of the stamps goes to these homes. Support the homes and read much more about all of it here and see the stamps here.

October is a month where the weather in Denmark is getting cold and rainy. To keep warm Mary was dressed in a navy blue turtleneck, which you can't live without and they are pretty inexpensive, and over she wore a black Prada jacket with sequins. It's a jacket we have seen her wear several times and there is an associated skirt. After her speech she stepped down from the rostrum we had a clear view to the boots, a pair of black ankle boots from Mulberry with the beautiful name Tillie. The classic bag from Bottega Veneta we all know. I think it is a great honor for Mary each year to publish the new Christmas stamps where the money goes to help many Danish children every single year and I hope that we this year once again can collect lots of money the children and this years stamps are really sweet!

Visiting the Geelsgaardskolen and Rosenborg Palace with Lady Silvia Gašparovičová

It's always a pleasure to see Mary around kids! Their happy faces makes Mary smiles, which makes me smile. She's so caring. On a October day, she had chosen a snow white suit from Prada with a pencil skirt. The suit is reused. Her legs were bare but she carried a floral white Paul Smith scarf, also reused. One of the most amazing colours in the Fall is bordeaux and Mary wore exact that colour as a leather clutch and her brand new pumps, identified by Kate as Pura Lopez. Thanks for the help. I'm sure both the Lady Silvia, Mary and the kids had a great day! Not to mention, they also visited Rosenborg Palace.

To me Mary look great in any imaginable colour and the moss green is no excuse! I suggest the new dress is a suede model from JOSEPH. What do you think, have I found the right one? After several years following Mary, I continue to be amazed by her wardrobe. Mariam made me aware of that the green earrings are new and is from the Danish jewellery brand Jewlscph. On her feet she wore a pair of nude Prada pumps and in her hand a black clutch that might be from Bottega Veneta.

At the airport when the President and wife arrives to Denmark

When the President and his wife arrived to Denmark by fly, they were welcomed by the Royal family. On a chilly day Mary was dressed in a grey suit and navy blue accessories. The complementary  colours made each of them look amazing next to each other. On her head she wore a beautiful navy blue hat made by milliner Susanne Juul and with some help the suede pumps has been identified as Prada. My gratitude goes to Pernille! With a pair of black pearl earrings, Marianne Dulong, she was so elegant at the arrival of the Slovakian President. Mary just know how to dress on such day.

Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary attended the gala dinner

In her reused blue Kenth Fredin gown, Mary was to me the star of the night! When she and Frederik arrived to the dinner she wore a Malene Birger fur worn several years ago at new years eve 2009. In the same blue colour she wore a pearl and aquamarine necklace and earrings. On her head she of course wore the diamond tiara from her wedding and her huge blue ring.

History: The Midnight Tiara

October, 22



Crown Princess Mary's Midnight Tiara is not an old and inherited piece of jewellery, that mean it do not have a long history. Since we was her wear it the first time, she hasn't worn it that often. I hope we'll get the change to see her wear this masterpiece it much more.

The Midnight Tiara is made by one of the greatest Danish jewellery designers Charlotte Lynggaard from Ole Lynggaard Copenhagen. Original it was made to an exhibition on Amalienborg where Mary saw it and she extraordinarily got to wear it at the celebrantions of Prince Henrik’s 75th birthday and afterwards she bought it.

A little history about Ole Lynggaard Copenhagen:  
Ole Lynggaard Copenhagen was established in 1963 by the jewellery designer Ole Lynggaard. Today, since 2006, the company is owned by his daugther Charlotte Lynggaard, her son Søren Lynggaard and her husband Michel Normann. Ole Lynggaard is still drawing beautiful designs to the collections.

To the Midnight Tiara is also several other pieces like a brooch and Mary have had a pair of matching custom-made earrings. The thin branches are made of 18K rose and white gold, as well as black oxidised silver. On the 31 small flowers are a set with over 1,340 sparkling diamonds such as special cut moonstones in different sizes. This gives the effect of a starry night - therefor the Midnight Tiara. To you who want to see how the tiara is made take a look at the link here.

Day 2: Wedding in Luxembourg

October, 20








Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary attended the wedding of Prince Guillaume of Luxembourg and Stephanie de Lannoy, now Princess Stephanie of Luxembourg.


I must say Mary looked absolutely stunnning in the bordeaux suit! So beautiful. The grey Susanne Juul hat made a great contrast to the bordeaux colour and made her look stand out among all the royals outfits. You couldn't miss her. She hat we saw her wear at the opening of the parliament in 2009. Next to her husband, Frederik, she was glowing at the wedding. In the same amazing bordeaux colour she wore Prada pumps and then a dark grey Naledi Copenhagen clutch. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to find out where the suit come from. The earrings she was wearing, are the one that matched the ole Ruby Parure, this day with a black sea pearl as pendant. 

I can't stop starring at her wonderful eyes which is the reason why you get two pictures in this post. For me as a huge Mary admire it's hard to chose only one single picture from an event.

Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary has arrived to Luxembourg


The photographers got a quick chance to get a few pictures of the Danish royal couple at the arrival to the dinner the day before the wedding. It was taken before the gala dinner. Even though they arrived more or less private, they both waved and smiled to the press. No doubt that I need to copy her outfit! The slim dress-pants and the white lace blouse with a grey cardigan is brilliant! Then she just added a pair of Christian Louboutin pumps, a leather bag and her Burberry trench coat. Look forward to see what she'll be wearing at the dinner.

Attending the gala dinner on the day before the wedding


... A brand new shiny red Jepser Høvring (Spring/Summer 2013) gown! I would love to have seen all of the gown. She matched the Ruby Parure to the new dress and a red lipstick. I'm thrilled to see that some changes has been done on the necklace. I'm already a fan. Now we'll leave them alone until the big day tomorrow. Are you ready, I am!

History: The wedding Tiara


Unfortunately there is not much known history about Crown Princess Mary's wedding tiara. In 2004 when Mary Elizabeth Donaldson and Prince Frederik was getting married in the church of Vor Frue in Copenhagen, Mary received a gift from her mother- and father-in-law, Queen Margrethe and Prince Henrik. That gift was a tiara, worn on her wedding day. Past the years it's told that they bought the tiara on an auction and is considered to be from around 1900.

Since she wore it at her wedding as a bride the tiara has come to some changes. Back in 2011, five white South Sea Pearls were added to the tiara such as a series of pearls were added around it. During 2011 and 2012 its appearance changed multiple times.                                        

Another thing to know about the tiara is, that it's actually possible to wear it as a necklace as well. Unfortunately, we have only had to change to see that once on a visit to Australia in 2005.

Crown Princess Mary at the arrival to St. Petersburg

To me Mary is a great inspiration and despite my young age I love to dress like her. I find her style one of the most inspiring and her way of match clothes is incredible. At the arrival to Russia, she once again convince me; her style is outstanding! Dressed in white trousers and a beige blouse with a new coat (identified of Pernille as SAND) and the amazing Christian Louboutin shoes. I don't know what you wear when you travel but my travel-style is much more casual then this. Makes me wonder if I should try to dress like this? Over her shoulder she wore an old light brown leather bag from Prada.

Jacket: SAND Grey Coat with Collar and Pockets

From when Crown Princess Mary visited The Wild Swans exhibition 

The royal-blue colour is so amazing on Mary next to her brown hair! On a visit to Greenland she has worn it before with the Elise Gug brooch. My thanks goes to Kate for the help of finding the brooch. After a long time and hours with search the dress is finally identified and Jayson Brunsdon is the designer. At the arrival to the exhibition, she wore the same grey SAND coat as when she arrived to Russia. She kept the Christian Louboutin pumps on. Mary is known for her reuse of clothes as well as accessories; this time she reused her snake skin Prada handbag, made to clutch. Her wonderful earrings are from the exclusive jewellery brand Figaros Bryllup

Wauw... I'm the absolute lover of pastel colours and this match of DAY Birger et Mikkelsen silk blouse and the new Elise Gug pencil skirt is just amazing. The skirt has been found by Kate. The outfit show her slim figure and the colours make her the princess she is. You might feel my enthusiasm of the look! Every time I see her even though after 8 years of following her, she become more and more beautiful.
With some luck and a little knowledge I identified her new suede shoes as L.K. Bennett. I really hope she'll be wearing them again.

In the evening Crown Princess Mary attended a reception 

The visit has come to an end and at the reception the last day in Russia Mary was beautifully dressed in a black Hugo Boss dress, which she also has in white and red. She had chosen black pearl earrings and a bracelet both from Marianne Dulong. Then her shoes; in some way most women's eyes are drawn to other women's shoes they indicate (mostly) who we are and how our style is. With several confused hours and more then one to look for the new shoes. Now we know they come from By Malene Birger (AW 2012). I haven't been able to find the exact same clutch as the checkered she carried, my guess is that it's from Prada; please take a look at the link below and tell what you think.

Mary keeps impress me with her clothes and pretty sure this dress also made an impression on you. A dress like this has to be made of one of the best in the world, everything on the it is made beautifully. I'm not sure if it came as a surprise when Pernille identified the dress as being created by the Danish designer Malene Birger. She really is a great designer and it's shown right here with this dress also with the stunning beadwork! To an outfit like this she wore black satin Prada pumps, a clutch and black jewellery. The black bracelet looks a lot like the white Catena from Marianne Dulong which is why I assume she could be the creator of this one as well.

I'm not a big follower of politics but this time a year when the royal family show up, I'm the first to be a listener. Loved the feminine outfit Mary was wearing, lace all over. Now you might sunder, where does this amazing clothes come from? And that's where I enter the scene. The jacket is a Prada and the stunning lace work is a blouse and skirt from the Danish designer Julie Fagerholt's brand Heartmade (Spring/Summer 2010). On the feet was a pair of beige Miu Miu pumps with the characteristic metal detail on the heel. Has so be one of my favourites.

Two other great accessories was the black pearl earrings from Marianne Dulong and a beige FW 2011/2012 Naledi Copenhagen clutch and of course there's her Susanne Juul hat. So beautiful!
