-Celebration-
The whole Danish royal family were gathered at Christiansborg in Copenhagen to attend the celebration of the 500 anniversary of the reformation. Both Queen Margrethe, the Crown Prince couple, Prince Joachim, Princess Marie and Princess Benedikte attended the celebration. It took place in the Landstings Hall at Christiansborg castle -where the family each year attend the opening of the Parliament and where many gala dinners also takes place each year. The Queen herself i patron of the big celebration of the 500 anniversary of the reformation, which all started in Germany with Martin Luther's 95 theses. Today it still matter. Everyone seemed to be in a splendid mood on Tuesday during the morning when the celebration took place. The Queen also gave a remarkable speech in front of all the participants including her own family sitting in first raw.

Mary was beautifully dressed in simply black and white. In a way I had no idea what to expect from her at the event. First of all because I had completely forgot all about it and second because you never know what to expect when it comes to Mary and her clothes. She really impressed me, such as her sister-in-law did with her outfit. Mary showed up at Christiansborg, dressed in a white peplum jacket, which I am pretty sure we have seen a couple of times before and a brand new black pleated skirt featuring white flowers. I don't know a thing about the jacket, do you? The last couple of days I have tried to identify her new pleated skirt. And you know what? -I actually think I found it. Marc by Marc Jacobs is the one. The print and all looks exactly the same to me. I found several websites where to purchase the skirt and the print is located differently in each one of them. Make a quick search and you know what I mean. As accessories she had chosen a reused Susanne Juul creation, a golden Orit Elhanati necklace and other jewellery from Dulong Fine Jewelry. A lovely combination. Other than that, she belted up the jacket with a Prada belt featuring a bow, a Quidam clutch and her two-tone Gianvito Rossi pumps. What a treat.

-Gala concert-
On occasion of the 500 reformation anniversary celebrated at Christiansborg earlier in the morning, the six royal members attended a gala concert in the evening. It took place in DR's concert hall in Copenhagen. Princess Benedikte arrived first, then Prince Joachim and Princess Marie followed by the Crown Prince couple and then Queen Margrethe arrived last. The Queen is patron of the grand celebration and has attended several events during the past months on the occasions. Both DR Symphony Orchestra and DR Vocal Ensemble contributed to a festive evening with lots of music from both Bach and Wagner. From what I see all of them really seemed to look forward to a wonderful evening in DR's concert hall along with all the other invited guests. I imagine a spectacular atmosphere in the room full of people and lots of beautiful music.

The Queen stunned in a bright pink evening dress, Princess Marie looked great in a black dress, Princess Benedikte dazzled wearing a metallic lace dress while Mary blew me away wearing a brand new embroidered dress. Many designers, like Prada and YDE Copenhagen, have been mentioned as possibilities to identify this amazing new dress. Personally, I was on the YDE Copenhagen-team. Who did you vote for? Now Heaven has actually been able to find out who in fact created her dress. It turns out to be a custom made dress from Bach Copenhagen, here. A really beautiful dress and that looks gorgeous on her. Maybe we are going to see her in their designs again in the future? -I hope so. Keeping everything classy she embrace the style by wearing blue accessories as well. Aquamarine blue chandelier earrings, which I have heard is a gift from her husband created by Dulong Fine Jewelry but please, that I have nothing that proves it. Then she wore a reused satin blue clutch from Prada and matching Gianvito Rossi pumps. Think I got a glimpse of her golden Cartier bracelet as well. And take a look at that magnificent hairstyle. Simply gorgeous.
