The Crown Princess visited Lyngby to attend the inauguration of 200 new students housing residents, also called the Hempel College. These new students residents are for both Danish students and exchange students. The Crown Princess was in a great mood, despite the rain, when she first arrived to Lyngby Campus where she was warmly welcomed. She was, among others, welcomed by Rector of DTU Anders O. Bjarklev and Chairman of the Hempel Foundation Richard Sand, who both gladly offered the Crown Princess a spot under their umbrella. The rain just seemed to make her laugh. After the arrival several speeches were given and the Crown Princess listened with great interest. As part of the official opening, she released no less than 200 green balloons followed by a guided tour around the new facilities. Seems like everyone were having a great time.
Often when it's rainy and/or windy, she has bare legs and is wearing no jacket. For that I admire her even more. So that really what I expected to when Mary attended the inauguration, but I was wrong. Instead she had chosen black tight trousers, a (new?) creamy white blouse featuring some pretty amazing details and... a brand new checkered coat. First, lets talk about the blouse. Have we seen it before? -I don't believe we have. The style seems familiar to me but still I haven't been able to identify where it is from. Any ideas? For sure the checkered coat is the piece that caught everybody's attention. I learned from royalty_wardrobe that it's from the Danish designer Baum und Pferdgarten. A really classy 80s inspired double breasted "blazer-coat". Mary embraced the style by wearing golden earrings and a necklace from Dulong Fine Jewelry and her golden one from Orit Elhanati -a combination she has worn a lot late. A combo I really enjoy. She matched all of this with her black pointed from SAND Copenhagen.
