It is all about world peace. "Me and Malala share the same vision. We want a peaceful world. I admire her" these are the words the Crown Princess chose when she arrived to the Grand Theatre in Copenhagen on Sunday to watch the documentary He named me Malala which has its premiere in Denmark the same day. It was 3:00 pm when she arrived to the theatre. This gala premiere was also to mark the start of Copenhagen International Documentary Film Festival, CPH:DOX, -one of the largest documentary film festivals in the world. Every year since 2013, Copenhagen cinemas are filled with over 200 specially selected documents from around the world. It's quite interesting to read about the project and if you want to read a little more you find it here.
The Crown Princess and the the Pakistani girl Malala, which the documentary is about, have more then one thing in common despite living a world apart. They both work for a better world where women and girls have more rights and better living conditions. The reason why Malala became known across the globe was because she defied the Taliban and told her opinion on child and women's rights in connection with school. At the time the press was all over her to hear what she had to say. Almost everyone in the world had heard about this Pakistani girl who almost was killed by a terrorist attack because of her statement. She survived and told her story; a question on why we need to control our own life. This 18 year old girl, Malala Yousafzai, has been able in a very short time to share her message and stand up for girl's and women. For her incredible work and courage she has also received several awards: The United Nations Human Rights Prize (2013), the Mother Teresa Award (2012), the Simone de Beauvoir award (2013) and of course the Nobel Peace Prize (2014) as the youngest recipient ever. Very impressive young woman.

In her grey wool Massimo Dutti coat, worn at a previously event, Mary arrived in the afternoon to watch the documentary I just talked so much about. She seemed happy at the arrival and even took the time to take pictures with some of attendees standing outside the cinema. No rush at all. After, she shortly spoke with the press while she was headed to find her seat and watch the documentary. Wearing ankle boots which I think is from Gianvito Rossi and her grey Mulberry body-cross bag featuring a golden chain shoulder strap. Despite the fact that this is quite an event we only have a very few pictures of her, non without the coat. So it's a little hard for me to tell exactly what she was wearing underneath. What we see is a white collar probably from a button-down shirt and a navy blue sweater, but this gives us at least two options: either she's wearing a white button-down and a sweater over (this is a combo we have seen before) or her JOSEPH blouse that are designed to look like she is wearing a white button-down underneath. I know it sounds complicated, still I hope you understand what I mean about all this. I think it is very likely that she is wearing her JOSEPH jumper because I see similarities with the two collars. Think I see her diamond earrings from Hartmann's as well.
