It is here; the 4th Women Deliver Conference 2016 has arrived to Denmark. Was it a year or two ago it was announced that the international conference would come to Copenhagen? And now it's finally here. Since then I imagine how much planning there must have been to do; things to get in order. For sure this is not something that happens over night. Committed to everything that has been going, has Mary been a part of the process. She has participated in pre-events, meetings and all kinds of preparation the day, where she is standing on the stage welcome everybody with the words: "I - and I believe I also speak on Behalf of Denmark - WE are truly honored to host Such an ambitious and action-driven conference." Because that was exactly what she did yesterday around 4:30 pm. local time in front of 5,500 participants from over 169 different nations all over the world. They are all in Denmark to attend the Women Deliver Conference 2016. Before Mary, as patron of the conference, entered the stage and gave an impressive opening address, she attended several events among others with the Maternity Foundation and Young Leaders here accompanied by Crown Princess Mette-Marit of Norway, which whom she arrived to Bella Centre in Copenhagen early in the morning. The many speakers clearly impressed the two royal women such as they were impressed by them. At 4 o'clock it was time for Mary to officially open the conference. She arrived along with her husband Crown Prince Frederik, Princess Benedikte and Princess Mabel of the Netherlands. Like never before; was the Crown Prince Couple popular, especially Mary. Frederik expressed that he is proud of her, like I believe we all are. She was clearly overwhelmed by everything going on such as inspired by the people she has met so far participating in the conference.


To represent Denmark at such a prominet conference is one thing but Mary is also the patron which means she is not only just representing her own country but everything the Women Deliver Conference stands for: that investment in girls and women, makes a difference to everybody. This takes a sophisticated and polished look which I differently think Mary hit spot on with the Hugo Boss (BOSS Black) floral skirt, white pleated blouse possibly from By Malene Birger and short Prada jacket. An outfit we have seen before at a meeting with the UNFPA, here she met with Executive Director of UNFPA Dr Babtunde Osatimehin, where Foreign Minister Kristian Jensen also attended like he did yesterday. To match the rest of the outfit she wore a pair of two-colour statement earrings I haven't been able to indemnify even though she has worn them at several occasion before this one. The lack pictures makes it a little difficult for me to tell about the round colourful brooch on her chest but I guess it's some kind of batch brooch with Women Deliver's logo. To carry her opening address, pen and paper, Mary had chosen the caramel leather bag from Ralph Lauren. And on her feet she embrace the style with a pair of Christian Louboutin pumps which made the outfit complete. I'm pretty sure she is also wearing a multicolour bracelet from Dulong Fine Jewelry. A strong and power look, like the woman wearing it!
