As patron, Crown Princess Mary attended the official opening of Day of Research 2017. The Crown Princess also presented the Research Communication Prize 2017.
The Crown Princess arrived, in windy weather, to Experimentarium in Hellerup to attend the grand opening of Day of Research 2017. At the opening was also Minister of Education and Science Søren Pind, who also entered the stage later when the prize was handed over. Day of Research is a national science festival with more than 75,000 participants. It is also on this occasion the Crown Princess presented the Research Communication Prize 2017 to this year's winner Quantum physicist Jacob Sherson from Aarhus University. Along with the prize is given DKK 100,000. The prize is given to a researcher or research group who has made a special effort to communicate research to a wider public. Before the winner was announced Mary had a really great time, having fun with all kind of scientific experiments. As one activity she got the chance to try what it is to lift a 500 kg. electric car -and of course she did it! From what I see the Crown Princess had a wonderful day in Hellerup.
What to wear for a science festival? Well, what Mary did was: she matched one of her white silk blouses from Elise Gug with a reused A-line skirt. Simple as that. Although she wore anything as simple as a white blouse and a black (or maybe even dark purple?) skirt, Mary always manages to keep everything super stylish! As mentioned, we have seen her in this skirt before but I am still not sure where it is from. Since the first time, I have had Hugo Boss in mind which I'm pretty sure I've mentioned before. This has not brought me any closer to an answer. At the arrival she was wearing one of her favourite coats from JOSEPH seen on multiple occasions; everything from daytime events and evening events. Mary embraced the style with pearl jewellery made by Dulong Fine Jewelry and python pointy pumps. Yes, what you just read is correct -she in fact wore snakeskin pumps and lifted a 500 kg. car. These shoes we saw the first time on an new official photo of the royal family, here. At that time I had not idea where to find these new pumps. After having seen them a couple of times I was wondering if Gianvito Rossi was the designer I was looking for. Today that was confirmed when a readers shared a photo of them. Now I am no longer in doubt. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to track down the exact same model yet. Let me know if you find them. A clear winner with eye-catching accessories!
