What a lovely surprise! I was not aware that the royal family would attend the ballet premiere of The Nutcracker but it is just a wonderful 1st December gift for all of us. Queen Margrethe has been involved in the scenography and has designed all costumes, which by the way is not the first time. Nor is it the first time Queen Margrethe has invited the royal royal couple and their children to see the Christmas ballet. This year all four children attended along with their parents. The ballet took place in Tivoli Concert Hall. Also Countess Alexandra, her youngest son Prince Felix and his brother Prince Henrik were present such as Queen Anne-Marie. I wonder why Prince Joachim, Princess Marie and of course Princess Athena were not attending too? Well, the royal family members arrived around 7 pm. local time and clearly they had a great -even before the ballet started. I am sure they enjoyed the beautifully Christmas decorated Tivoli. The Queen entered the stage after the performance and the audience loved it!



It feels like a year since we have seen Mary and it's really just a week or so. But I have lost sense of reality the last week. So I am thrilled to see her at this unofficial event. With just this one outfit I am already inspired to do something similar on my own. In the dark Mary dazzled in a reused caramel coloured Oscar de la Renta coat. A splendid colour this time a year. Last time we saw it was at King Carl Gustav's 70th birthday celebration in April, hereNo doubt that I'm excited to it again. And my increased heartbeat does not end here because she was wearing both new pumps and a brand new tartan scarf! Never thought we would see her wear anything like this new scarf. Do you like it? I think it looks great combined with the coat. Don't you think? We'll get back to the shoes. A couple of images appeared of her without the coat and to me it differently looks like a new dress featuring some symmetric dots. With help from Heaven the dress has now been identified as Martin Grant. She accessorized her outfit with a Carlend Copenhagen clutch, Jewlscph earrings, a ring and her golden Cartier bracelet. Perfectly matching the multi-colour scarf Mary had red nails and the most amazing berry lips. Simply gorgeous! Now back to the shoes. Also brand new. I do not know if you recognized the style, but I did right away. Valentino! A new pair of rockstud pumps in green! I simply adore these pumps; how a classic pump meet the more edgy rivet is just great. Can't wait to see her wear them again. Note that I finally was able to find them in the right colour. Of course I also have to mention that she was wearing green leather gloves as well.

    Thanks you so very much for the update. Now that I have a closer look at the dress, I like it more than when I saw it the first time. First of all, I love that shade of green, and being a shirt dress, it expands ones wardrobe, like you would never believe.

    The shirt dress has been a staple in designers' reportoire for a very long time. It can be worn in so many different ways in combination with other pieces--as the say, the possibilities are endless. Another classic piece of garment, I am sure we will see the Crown Princess wear this piece many more times to come in as many different ways.

    Thanks for the update, Henriette.

    Best regards,

    RW.

    1. You are very welcome :) After a closer look at the dress I also love it even more than I did before. When I found out it was green, it instantly become one of my 2016 winter favourites. I'm in no doubt that we are going to see this specific dress again. I see all kinds of outfits combined with shoes in different colours and magnificent clutches...
