Crown Princess Mary attended the DR Ultra Gala concert with the Mary Foundation in Sønderborg.
About the DR Ultra Gala Show -It's Nice to be Nice
The Ultra Gala show is the big live show produced by DR (Danmarks Radio) to kids in the age of 7-12 years old. The show is a combination of music, comedy and lots of entertainment performed by among others the singer Wafande, Page Four, the winner of MGP-children Flora Ofelia etc. The hosts are Jacob Riising, Sofie Linde and Joakim Ingversen. The show was invented to focus on being a "nice friend" and this year with focus on social isolation among children. It can be watched all over Denmark the upcoming months and Mary attended the first opening show 2015 in Sønderborg. Read more here.
The red carpet was changed in favor of the yellow colour, associated with Dr Ultra which is children's channel. From the second Mary arrived to Skansehallen in Sønderborg she was welcomed by so many kids taken pictures of her with their phone. Everyone would like to get a glimpse of the future Queen of Denmark. Everywhere Mary goes, she's greeted like a super star! As a representative of the Mary Foundation and the guest of honor, Mary attended the premiere of the Ultra Gala show which also was the beginning of a Denmark tour. This year the show focuses on how to prevent and handle solitude among children in the age of 7-12, this is one of the things Mary and her foundation work with in the every-day's, so it was obvious for Mary to attended. But there was also one other reason why Mary was invited, because she was given the friendship award D' Nice At Være Nice (It's Nice to be Nice) to be the most nice princess. Sweet, isn't it? It was handed over by the siblings Dikte and Malte and it was received with great honor. Like last year Mary did also participate in the show during the evening. During the break she told the press that she really liked the show and its message to be a good and helpful friend. These days there is great focus on solitude among both children and adults. According to Billed Bladet, studies have shown that about 6 percent of boys and about 10 percent of girls in the age of 13-15 have often or very often felt lonely. This is the highest proportion of lonely young people since 1988 according to a school studies from 2014. After the show it was time to write in the big solitude-book. An overdimensionel book where the children wrote their own personal advises how to handle to solitude and of course Mary did the same. Surrounded by children Mary wrote her own advise saying: "HUSK at du er noget værd -tror på dig selv" (REMEMBER that you are worth something -believe in yourself).
Despite the fact that Mary was all dressed in black, it was absolutely fashionable and very edgy! Just named the nicest princess of them all, she rocked in a black suit! Of course this is not the first time we see her wear a suit. I remember a white, red and grey one as well. This simple suit she upgraded to the most stylish I have ever seen, matched with a sensual and classy black lace blouse. The perfect way to make your suit much more feminine. Last night when I was writing this post I was just so tired and was ready to leave it till today but then out of nowhere I was able to identify the black lace blouse and I had to share it with all of you, right away! I found the piece of wonder at Heartmade by Julie Fagerholt from her Winter/Holiday 2015 collection. Lace are my best friend these days which I fell in love with her new blouse and I had a serious urge to buy it. But when I saw the price, I instantly had the urge to find a similar one. Luckily there are a million similar ones to purchase. But I really adore the lace item because you can wear it in so many different ways, no matter which style you have. A classic item you will no regret you bought. Enough about my love to the blouse, she matched her black suede metal cap-toe pumps from Gianvito Rossi to the suit. Last worn at the premiere of You do not say no to Asger Jorn in 2014. One other thing I noticed was her hairstyle. Some time since we have seen an everyday hairstyle so elegant. Last year her hair was like this all the time. I kinda missed them because I find them very inspiring how to do my own hair. Even though it look hard, it's quite easy to make. It's all about practice, practice, practice. If you are interested I would recommend websites like Youtube, of course, and Pinterest. My second source of inspiration after Mary. She accessorized her "gala" outfit with round diamond earrings from Hartmann's and what looks like a silver ring featuring a green stone. Left we have the little shiny clutch from Carlend Copenhagen looking nice with the rest of the outfit and her burgundy nail polish. I hope I some day will get the chance to wear an outfit like this! In my eyes it's a clear winner as always.
