The Heart Association's Research Scholarship

Monday, January 11th

Crown Princess Mary attended the presentation of the Heart Association's Research Scholarship, here, at Hotel d'Angleterre in Copenhagen. 1

For a couple of days I have had no computer or no internet, which is why I haven't already made a post about her attendance at the presentation of the Heart Association's Research Scholarship. From the moment the Crown Princess arrived to the exclusive Hotel d'Angleterre in Copenhagen, everyone noticed her splendid mood. She was welcomed with flowers, handshakes and lots of smiles. A group of children, whom she was later photographed with, also welcomed the Crown Princess with a unexpected hug. The Crown Princess also had a little chat with some of the 'heart children'. Heart children suffer from different kinds of heart diseases. As patron of the Heart Association she is the perfect person to hand over the prestige scholarships to the three winners. Three heart researchers -Majbritt Tang Svendsen, Jes Sandal Lindholt and Lars Idorn. Congratulations to all three of them with the very fine reward. Before handing over the scholarships she gave a remarkable speech. A speech that clearly impressed everyone. Among others she stated that it means a lot to her, to be part of the association's work.

I was really surprised by Mary's outfit at the presentation. The colour- and fabric combination are just unique. I adore how she matched that new burgundy skirt with a navy blouse, worn on a few other occasions. Turns out that the blouse is from Prada, though I was pretty sure Baum und Pferdgarten was the designer. I was wrong. Lurdes identified her new skirt as Alexander McQueen. Looks just great, especially with the matching suede pumps. Talking about shoes -these were quite complicated to find. Other dear friend helped me. Kate managed to find her two tone suede pumps at Prada and not Gianvito Rossi as I first thought. At first glance I did not really like two colours for the pumps, but Mary makes it work perfectly. She also embraced the outfit by wearing an expensive blue clutch from Quidam and new earrings. Once again Kate suggested a possible designer: Jewlscph. It has been confirmed by Mai Manniche (the founder of Jewlscph) on her Instagram, here. Aren't they just beautiful? Mary also matched the look with burgundy nail polish and her old Cartier watch. The watch comes with several different watchband's. So, have you fallen in love with her outfit as much as I have?

  1. Hi Henriette:

    I am "loving" this outfit. I love the full midi-skirt with that detail at the hem. After having read your blog about the crown princess for a few years, I have come to know that for the crown princess' fashion, its the details that carry the day. The detail on the hemline of the skirt, the richness of the maroon color; however, we also know that there more details to discover. I love her blue blouse, but it was not just a blue blouse, it has a yoke at the top (correct me if I am wrong about the description) and pleats, three-quarter length sleeve I notice the material had a iridescence to it. With all those details including the bi-color shoes and tights to give the look the perfect finish, minimum jewelry was needed! I am left to wonder if she worn a coat and if so, the color and the cut?

    Great post Henriette and, thanks for the update.


    1. It is indeed all about the details. Mary has a good eye for details and it would be a shame not to notice them because to me this are what makes the outfit look complete. Wearing this new skirt of different lengths I think she looks very polished, in a way we would all like to look. The balance between colour and different material is beautiful. With this outfit Mary convinced me that she is still the woman that inspire me the most! :)

      I also wondered which coat she may have worn but I haven't been able to find any pictures of her where we actually she her with a coat. Maybe we will...
