Christening in Holmens Church

Saturday, August 15th

Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary attended the christening of Countess Ingeborg, the daughter of Count Bendt and Countess Pernille Wedel from Wedellsborg on the island of Funen, in the church of Holmen in Copenhagen. Crown Prince Frederik was one of six godparents. 

The only pictures taken of the Crown Prince couple at the christening in Holmens church this weekend are taken by Billed Bladet. It was no official event for the couple to attend, still I want to bring it here. You really can't miss such a spectacular event! This might also be a bit more special for the couple to attend because, as you already know, the twins - Prince Vincent & Princess Josephine - were back in 2011 christened in the same church and now Frederik is the godfather of another little girl, that might bring lots of memories of their own four children, which did not attend with their parents. According to Billed Bladet the couple were not seated next to each other, which makes sense because Frederik was one of the godparents they use to sit closer to the child and its parents such as the baptistery. They left the church together. And here's where I enter the picture.

Mary, the Queen of Fashion, was dressed in a Crown Princess Mette-Marit-look-a-like-dress or at least that's what came to my mind when I saw her. Crown Princess Mette-Marit tend to wear long silky dresses in any colour and print. Mary chose, to me, a little unexpected dress featuring a snake print. And believe it or not I'm actually the one who identified it! Her new clothes and accessories have been pretty hard to find or one of you have found it to me. Now I'm back in the game again with this new dress from.... Zimmermann. A brand made by two Australian sisters, Simone and Nicky Zimmermann, founded in 1991. The fact that she's wearing snake print is unusual for her, suits her very well. Gives her more of a Scandinavian-look maybe because it reminds me so much of Norway's Mette-Marit. Am I completely wrong in my assumption? Mary added a few but stylish and elegant accessories. Two of them are the same from the magical weeding between Prince Carl Philip and (now) Princess Sofia of Sweden in June. You remember it? At that time I identified her silver clutch as J. Furmani, this is the same we saw at the christening such as her silver glitter pumps from Gianvito Rossi. The Danish jewellery designer Marianne Dulong created Mary's silver diamond earrings which can be mixed and matched in several different ways, here with a dark blue pendant. I think she wore a belt worn with her Fendi dress at a garden party at Fredensborg in 2012. A belt in the same print as the dress.

  1. Nice find. I really didn´t like this dress. It has no shape in fact! Very MM indeed! And that´s never a good thing, if you aren't talking about white gala gowns!

    1. I don't think you are the only one who do not like it ;) It's right, the new dress does not get her that much shape but still I'm fascinated by her choice.
