Wednesday, October 29th
Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary attended an event celebrating the 15th anniversary of the American Chamber of Commerce (AmCham) which took place at Moltkes Palace, Copenhagen.
Feel like quite a long time since we have had a real gala dinner with floor-length evening gown and a menu suited if it was for a Queen. It kinda was, at least a future Queen attended with Denmark's future King. Maybe not the best introduction. So let us try one more time. The Crown Prince couple attended the celebrating AmCham that stands for the American Chamber of Commerce, 15th anniversary. The gala dinner took place at Moltkes Palace in Copenhagen and around pm. 6:30 Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary arrived as the last participating guests. US Ambassador Rufus Gifford and his husband also attended the prestigious dinner such as a member of the Danish Parliament. If I am correct, we only have pictures from the arrival and not from the dinner which I of course understand. Sure they enjoyed the evening; seemed like the couple were in a really great mood -all one smily face.
An official gala dinner like this one takes the right evening dress. I tend to say 'of course' Mary had chosen to twist that dress code a bit, because she showed up wearing an asymmetric jacquard skirt custom-made by Jayson Brunsdon with a black wrap blouse. The skirt has actually been seen once before. Do you remember when? Let me help you. Mary wore this elegant skirt on the pictures in an edition of Australian Women's Weekly, here. Back then she wore it with a sleeveless blouse featuring a deep V-neck. I kinda like that better than the one from the gala dinner. Which one do you prefer? She had matched the blue flowers from the skirt with a pair of aquamarine blue earrings from Annikat such as a (huge!) square ring. Both blouse, clutch and lace Gianvito Rossi pumps were all black. The perfect way to keep all attention to that incredible evening skirt. Maybe I would have preferred a pair of plain black pumps or maybe even burgundy pumps in the same colour as the nail polish and berry lips. But it is really just thought. Differently not a disappointing outfit; one I would love to see at another occasion.
