The Champions for Change Awards Dinner

Thursday, March 12th

Crown Princess Mary attended the Champions for Change Awards Dinner taking place at the Banqueting Hall in London. The Crown Princess attend the dinner as patron of the International Center for Research on Women (ICRW). 


For this very special event the Crown Princess has traveled all the way to London. She was attending the Champions for Change Awards Dinner taking place at the Banqueting Hall, London. Not only was she about the hand over the award or give a speech during the dinner, she is also the patron for the event along with the English baron Hayman. The Crown Princess was warmly welcomed when she arrived to the big and fine arrangement. With a glass of champagne in her hand, she spend plenty of time greeting as many participants as possible. As before mentioned Mary entered the stage and gave the most incredible speech of them all at the opening. Among others, she told the other participants about her visit in Ethiopia last month, here, here, here. Time was up for the winner of the Champions for Change Award to be presented. This year the award was given to no other than Princess Mabel of the Netherlands for her committed work with the project Girls Not Brides: The Global Partnership to End Child Marriage. Congratulation to Princess Mabel with this very fine award! The evening continued with an exquisite dinner in the beautiful surroundings of the Banqueting Hall.

One of the most amazing things is to get the change to see Mary wearing dusty colours -makes everything a bit more royal I think. During our childhood, especially girls, grow up with the fantasy that royals women wear huge tulle gowns, diamond tiaras and glass shoes, like Cinderella, on a daily basis. Well, I know that is not in fact the truth. Still, I love to see her wear something as in fairy tales. All this just to tell that I find her outfit absolutely stunning! At the arrival her new dusty pink dress was carefully hidden underneath that beautiful grey Massimo Dutti coat. Though the dress is pretty simple featuring long sleeves, she really knows how to wear it beautifully. Only a few hours after my post was published, Kate and Sarah managed to track down the designer of her new dress as Ralph Lauren. The detail with the brooch at front draw attention to her face and wonderful hairstyle. Talking about hairstyle, then I have to say that Mary's has always been as great inspiration for me. Attending gala on occasion of my own graduation, I created a hairstyle just like hers. Other than being a royalist I am truly in passionated about fashion, makeup hair design etc. This is also a reason why I chose to make a style blog about my second passion -the Crown Princess. So, since you have decided to follow my blog you have to have an interest in the same things as me, at least just a few. Therefor I thought: "why no share tips with my readers on how to create for instance a similar hairstyle as Mary's?". So every time I have something interesting to share with you, you will see that pink logo as below. Embracing the style Mary had chosen pink Gianvito Rossi (AW collection) pumps, a matching knot clutch from Bottega Veneta and black pearl earrings from Marianne Dulong.

Hairstyle:
At the dinner her hairstyle was indeed smashing and that is what I want you to try yourself! In fact it is very simple to make and takes about 10-15 minutes. Something that works perfectly day and night. 

1· Divide your hair into small sections and curl them. The bigger sections, the bigger your curl gets. That is really up to you how you want them. This half up do also works great with straight hair. Finish up with a good amount of hairspray and comb it through -gently!

2· Then take two front sections of hair and place them one by one on the back of your head. Makes them stay in place with 3 or 4 bobby pins (or what it takes to make them stay!).

3· Done! ... and this is really it. Pretty easy, right? You are very welcome to share your result with me.
