Turists visiting Copenhagen experienced something extraordinary yesterday evening, when the queen, her husband and the Crown Prince Couple, were about to attend one of the biggest gala dinners this year. The dinner is a celebration of the Royal Danish Yacht Club's 150th anniversary, which took place at the Opera, opposite of Amalienborg palace. The Crown Prince couple was the first to arrive. The couple walked from their home in Frederik VIII's Palace to the dock, waiting for Queen Margrethe and Prince Henrik to arrive. It was a smily Crown Prince Couple, who met the Queen and Prince Henrik at the dock, maybe it was because of the weather which was just brilliant. Perfect for an evening were the dresscode allows gowns. Lovely to see all of them together. That does not happen very often any more. It was also great to see Prince Henrik. We have not seen him much lately, well since the queen announced his retirement on New Years eve. The four royal family members weren't the only one to attend the grand event at the Opera house. The Royal Danish Tacht Club has around 2,000 members and most of them attended the 150th anniversary. What an event.



Just like the evening sun shining, Mary shone wearing her stunning powder pink YDE Copenhagen gown. It is designed by the designer himself, Ole Yde. One gown; worn twice before. One time in Vietnam (first picture above) and in time in Australia (second picture above). But it is the first time we see her in the dress on Danish ground. I've loved this dress from the first time I laid eyes on it. The asymmetric shoulder, different length layers and waist band. She looks just great. What I first noticed about yesterday evening's outfit; is that the black detail, has now changed to a huge flower. So with a powder pink rose, she wore matching accessories. I haven't managed to find any quality pictures from the celebration yet, which makes it so difficult for me to identify all of the accessories she wore. But here is what I see. Maybe you even notified something I didn't see. She embraced the wonderful style by wearing her Annikat earrings. I also see a golden ring and bracelet, possible worn here once before, but not good enough to find out more about it. A beautiful match. Her hairstyle also has to be mentioned. It is the most gorgeous hairstyle we have seen in a very long time. Love these feminine updos. Looks even more magnificent with the golden hairpins as seen in 2013, here. I strongly believe that she wore her golden leather pumps from Manolo Blahnik. Last but not least we have to talk about the snake skin clutch. It is told to be from Judith Leiber. That's why I requested the designer about the clutch. They replied that they were not able to tell, unless they got to see it. And we all know that is not possible. Another idea has been shared with me. That her clutch could be from  Uterqüe. A brand Queen Letizia of Spain and Queen Maxima of the Netherlands are very fund of. Let me know what you think. They two of them indeed look similar.

Dress: YDE Copenhagen One Shoulder Dress
Earrings: Annikat Diamond Earrings
Shoes: Manolo Blahnik Bb Metallic Leather Pumps

Possible identification
Clutch: Uterqüe Snake Skin Clutch

  1. This is the crown princess's best look of the year thus far. A style icon moment, in my humble opinion.

    1. It truly is! She looks so elegant, almost like an angle in that powder pink gown which I have come to love even more with the flower as detail.

  2. Like and angel is correct. Dare we say, ethereal? There have been a few iterations of this dress; however, I like this one the best. Also, I was looking at the original photo of the model and she does wear a flower in her hair that looks similar to the one attached to the dress -- lovely.

    Regards.

    1. Very much ethereal! If you ask me. I think the added rose makes the dress even more beautiful. I never really liked it with these black ribbon, so I'm thrilled to see it without. Can't wait to see her wear it again, hopefully soon.
