Crown Princess Mary was present at the Hans Christian Andersen Literature Award 2014 where she handed over the prize.
The Crown Prince couple and their four children are back from a week in Greenland. The Crown Princess is already back on duty. Here only a couple of days after they arrived to Denmark again she attended the Hans Christian Andersen Literature Award 2014 where she was invited to hand over the prize to this years winner. It rarely happens, but actually Mary arrived a little too late compared to what was planned and they had to start without her. But she showed up and everything else went smoothly. A few speeches were given and along with a couple of other the Crown Princess entered the stage to hand over the award to Sir Salman Rushdie. He was given both a beautiful statuette and a diploma. Imagine to be rewarded and how special it is that it's given to you by the Crown Princess, future Queen of Denmark.
These days Danes do not see the sun very much and it rains most of the time. Despite the bad weather and a short delay, Mary showed up in a sunny yellow Prada dress. Back in 2012 when she and Frederik visited South Korea, she wore the exact same dress along with a little hat, a pair of white gloves and a pair of nude pumps. I was pretty sure we would see her wear something a bit more... 'everyday-like'. Maybe a pair of black tights, a pencil skirt, some kind of blouse and maybe a jacket or coat, but differently not this. So I was very surprised and impressed when I saw her in that yellow dress -without a jacket! She accessorized the outfit with a large pearl bracelet and earrings from Marianne Dulong, a Shamballa Jewels bracelet and a nude clutch. I can't tell exactly who designed her clutch because I have only been able to find a single picture showing only a glimpse of it. Matching the clutch she wore nude mid pumps from Christian Louboutin featuring an almond shaped toe.
