On occasion of Norway celebration 200 years with a constitution Queen Margrethe and Prince Henrik attended the celebration in the Opera House, Copenhagen. They were accompanied by Crown Prince Frederik, Crown Princess Mary, Prince Joachim, Princess Marie and Princess Benedikte. From Norway attended Queen Sonja and Crown Prince Haakon.
A day of celebration, an important day of celebration. To honor Norway on the 200th anniversary with the constitution Queen Sonja of Norway and Crown Prince Haakon of Norway were invited to Denmark to celebrate the anniversary along with Queen Margrethe, the Crown Prince couple, Prince Joachim, Princess Marie, Princess Benedikte and 1,000 other special invited guests from both Norway and Denmark. The guests were introduced to Danish and Norwegian music, ballet and lots of speeches during this very special evening. With everything from windy, rainy and sunny weather they all arrived to the Danish Opera in Copenhagen. Nu hurt feelings when the royal family arrived when it rained. The two Queen's protected themselves from the rain with an umbrella. Crown Prince Haakon arrived accompanied by Frederik and Mary, who all seemed to enjoy each others company. Just me or is it lovely to see the Haakon, Frederik and Mary together? -always seems like they are having such a good time. They all did a quick and elegant entrance arriving to the Opera located right across Amalienborg castle. My guess is that Queen Sonja and her son are staying at Amalienborg while they are in Denmark.
Lightning up the room like a Queen, Mary arrived to the Opera accompanied by her husband and Crown Prince Haakon in her brand new evening gown! A colourful dream identified as Erdem by Pernille. I simply adore this dress. I'm not sure I would have worn anything like this at such an event but that's why I love Mary; always something surprising and unexpected. Makes her look really stunning. Could stare at her in the dress for hours, there are so many beautiful details -sleeves, shape, opening at her back, length etc. Really, isn't it just amazing? I'm thrilled and even more when I noticed her hairstyle. The most beautiful braided chignon. Lost my breath for a moment. As much as I love talking about fashion and clothes, I love talking about hair and beauty. Incredible, almost artistic. Styling the new silk dress and stunning hairstyle, she wore wonderful earrings from one of the most talented Danish jewellery designers, Ole Lynggaard Copenhagen. The flower earrings features 214 shiny diamonds. To match the earrings she accessorized her evening look with two, very expensive, Annikat diamond cuffs -designed as wings. She introduced them to us at the wedding in Sweden when Princess Madeleine married Christopher O'Neill last year, 2013. Wauw isn't she just lovely? Wearing her black satin pumps and box clutch from Prada I think this is one of the best evening outfits we have seen this year. Mary is just always looking her best, no matter where she goes which she something I've learned from her: always look your best because you want to.
