Book Forum in Copenhagen

Saturday, November 7th

Crown Princess Mary payed a visit to the Book Forum at Book Fair in the Bella Center in Copenhagen. Princess Isabella, Prince Vincent and Princess Josephine also attending the fair.


Unexpectedly, Crown Princess Mary and three of her four children show up at the annual Book Forum in the Bella Center in Copenhagen to attend the launch of former model Carina Axelsson's new book Model Under Cover, here. Carina is also engaged to Crown Prince Frederik's cousin Prince Gustav of Sayn-Wittgenstein-Berleburg, who is the son of Princess Benedikte. Accompanied with actress Ellen Hillingsø, who is also a close friend of Mary's, Carina Axelsson talked about her new book. The three royal members were sitting in front raw during Carina's interview. The atmosphere was great and I think all of them really enjoyed the afternoon together. Especially Prince Vincent seemed to have had a wonderful day. He had much fun with her sister's hairband, which by the way, reminds me of a piece worn by their mother in 2007, here. Maybe Princess Josephine borrowed or inherited her mother's hairband? Just consider the thought for a moment; the Crown Princess of Denmark as your mother with her wardrobe? Pia was among the audience when Carina Axelsson's was interviewed and she took a few pictures, which she has given me permission to share with all of you.

Mary was dressed in an edgy and very modern-kinda-look. And at the same time relaxed and casual at the Book Forum event on Saturday. Almost only in black (blouse, trousers, bag, shoes) she showed that even though she was attending a private event, on a Saturday, with her children, she still looks her very best. Differently something I would wear this time a year in Denmark. So, if you are every going to visit Denmark during November, wear something similar to this. Mary was in a long-sleeved blouse and black jeans. Kate identified her new black ankle boots featuring golden rivets. She found them at Julie Fagerholt Heartmade (AW15). Do you like them? Not shoes she is use to wear. Another piece that surprised me, is the checkered coat, which I would really like to identify. But so far, I haven't got a clue where to find it. Do you happen to know anything? It reminds we of a design from either Julie Fagerholt Heartmade or maybe DAY Birger et Mikkelsen. Finally, she carried a new black leather bag featuring braided straps. It has now been identified by Kate as Dolce & Gabbana 

Shoes: Julie Fagerholt Heartmade Avita
Bag: Dolce & Gabbana Miss Escape Tote Bag in Black
