Women Deliver & Wd2016
Women Deliver is leading in the discussion on girls' and women's rights to health and reproductive rights. With the motto "Invest in girls and women -it pays" they bring voices together from all over the world to drive progress about sexual-, maternal-, health- and reproductive rights. They believe that an investment in girls and women benefits the rest of the world. Wd2016 or Women Deliver 2016 is the worlds largest conference on health, rights and wellbeing of girls and women. The conference takes place in Copenhagen, Denmark, from 16-19th of May 2016. High level speakers, as Crown Princess Mary, will attend the conference. Read more about Woman Deliver, Wd2016 and the confirmed high level speakers

As I wrote in my last post a couple of days ago, we haven't really seen that much of Mary since in beginning of December when the family traveled to Australia to celebrate christmas. Then on January 11th she attended the presentation of the Heart Association's Research Scholarship at Hotel d'Angleterre in Copenhagen she was back to work but only for this one day. So for almost two weeks she has had time to prepare her appearance yesterday when she participated in a New Year reception with members of the Women Deliver Committee, who right now is organizing and planning the occurring Wd2015 which this year is taken place in Copenhagen from 16-19th of May which is only a few month ahead. For a relatively small country like Denmark, it is a great thing having to be representative country for the world's largest conference on health, rights and wellbeing of girls and women. But it also means that much time need to be used on planning the conference. Lots of high level speakers have already  announced their arrival when Wd2016 kick off on 16th of May 2016 and every little detail has to be planned when the more than 5,000 global leaders arrives to Copenhagen in May. According to Billed Bladet some of her royal friends will also attend. I think I've heard Crown Princess Mette-Marit will attend. Chosen by the committee Mary is the patron of the conference that probably have something to do with her work with the Mary Foundation and her commitment in humanitarian- and social work as Crown Princess and woman. She is working tireless to prove her commitment to make a change for those who need it the most. This is what makes Mary special: she is much more than expensive clothes, large tiaras and snake skin clutches. That is why Mary is admired by women all over the world including me. She was accompanied by among others Minister for children, education and gender equality Ellen Trane Nørby, Culture Minister Bertel Haarder and Foreign Minister Kristian Jensen who shared a photo of him and Mary chatting together at the reception. As the first speaker Kristian Jensen arrived a little late because of a previous meeting at Christansborg. Despite the delay, he was in a really great mood such as the Crown Princess. In his speech he praised Mary highly because of her commitment to the world's largest women's conference and their work. Lotte Hansen, Head of Danish Women Deliver Movement, did also share a photo on Twitter of her and Mary at yesterdays reception with the message "Thanks for a lovely New Year reception and the high attendance". On the group photo you see: Lord Mayor of Copenhagen Frank Jensen, Minister for children, education and gender equality Ellen Trane Nørby, Foreign Minister Kristian Jensen, Culture Minister Bertel Haarder, Head of Danish Women Deliver Movement Lotte Hansen and of course Crown Princess Mary.

First word that hit me when I saw what she was wearing at yesterday's reception was the great similarity it has with what Princess Marie, her sister-in-law, usually wears. I'm not quite sure what it is but I think it's the combination of the trousers and blouse (or is it a sweater?). A very classic Marie-outfit who often simple and minimalistic outfits with minimal accessories which is exactly that description I would use about Mary's outfits. Well, it's no shame to be inspired by Princess Marie but I did not find Mary's look that much of an inspiration. Black slimline trousers, a pair of patent pumps from Gianvito Rossi featuring a pointed toe and some kind of sequin/rhinestone sweater in a shark grey colour. The trousers we have seen several time occasions before but the blouse is differently new. I had no luck finding it, maybe you do? In my search, I was working with designers as Malene Birger, Day Birger et Mikkelsen, 2nd day and Alexander McQueen. The only thing I really liked about this look was the fact that she was wearing the most beautiful dark red/burgundy nail polish and the black pearl earrings from Marianne Dulong. This detail was a great match to the casual outfit and it assured me that the good-old-Mary is still there. Her hair and makeup were just as pretty as the accessories which she had chosen. Because the lack of quality pictures I can't tell if she wore any other jewelleries, if she was carrying a bag and what kind of coat she may has been worn when she arrived to Eigtveds Pakhus. I truly understand why she chose to wear something as simple as this because it's all about the project: Wd2016 and how she is able to use her voice trying to help girls' and women worldwide. Don't forget it, May isn't that far ahead. I promise to follow it all closely and share it with you right here on the blog.
