Magasin du Nord Fashion Prize 2017

Friday, October 27th

It has been some longs for the Crown Princess lately. On Friday she arrived to Art Gallery Charlottenborg in Copenhagen to attend the presentation of the Magasin du Nord Fashion Prize 2017, here. The Crown Princess was in a great spirit at the arrival and was warmly welcomed. She was about to hand over the Denmark's biggest design prize. The Magasin du Nord Fashion Prize  is given to a young design talents and goes with a scholarship on DKK 500,000 and his/her very own fashion show at Copenhagen Fashion Week. This year the young talent Lærke Andersen received the prestiges prize handed over by the Crown Princess herself. Lærke Andersen, who seemed overwhelmed and very happy at the presentation, gladly talked with the Crown Princess about her visions, ideas and goals in her carrier. The guest of honor also seemed to enjoy the company of her friend Nina Wedell-Wedellsborg, who attended the award show as board member.

A fashion award show takes a well-chosen outfit. Mary showed up in a brand new printed dress that really reminds me of a classy 70s dress. Both when it comes to the fabric, print, colours and silhouette. Even the collar call for a 70s dress. Not that the rest of her outfit reminds my anything of a vintage look -other than the dress. Do you like it? I'd really like to hear your opinion. Seems like Mary wasn't the only one falling in love with this Britt Sisseck dress. Also her attending friend Nina Wedell-Wedellsborg showed up in the exact same dress. Mary embraced the style by wearing a wide navy blue belt, which according to Jennifer is from Max Mara collection. Another blue accessory worn during the fashion event is her Quidam clutch. This means, three days with her beloved clutch, here & here. Great to see how to wear the exact same item in three different ways. It is also wonderful to see her wear the golden Orit Elhanati necklace and white people earrings from Dulong Fine Jewelry again. Can't get enough of these stylish accessories. Last piece I need to comment on are the pumps. She has worn them on several different occasions but never been identified. With this picture, here, I strongly believe Prada is the designer we are looking for. Let me know what you think and of course if you manage to find them.

  1. Sorry,but I was a little dissapointed because I count on something dazzling as year ago.I am not mad about this dress.

    1. Personally, I think the dress is very suitable for the occasions and I would really like to see it again. Maybe with some other accessories...?

  2. Hi:

    This maxi dress is just to die for!!! The designer really had a vision for this print and achieved incorporating that vision into a beautifully designed feminine piece with the cowl neck line; long sleeves and; asymmetric hemline piped in blue. The crown princess put her own stamp on the design with that gorgeous blue belt which matched perfectly. However; the pièce de résistance of this outfit, in my humble opinion must be her pumps, which I have loved since the first time she worn it.

    Frankly, I feel that because her friend worn the same design and which she worn well, it made the Crown Princess's stand out. What a coup this was for this designer!!

    Henriette, thank you so much for your posts.. I always look forward to reading them.

    All the best.



  3. Thanks for sharing your thoughts with the rest of us! Love to hear you like her new dress. I also think it features an exciting print and silhouette. Never a piece I would wear myself but the Crown Princess makes it stand out beautifully (despite the two of them wore the same dress...)

  4. Henriette:

    Just a quick note to make a correct to my comment as regards the color of the piping on the crown princess's dress. It is indeed black and not blue--my bad!

    Thank you and make it a great day!
