Thursday, November 30th
For several years the Crown Princess has kept a very special tradition going. Each year all the Mary Foundation's partners and collaborators are invited to Amalienborg to attend a Christmas reception. The reception is, of course, hosted by the Crown Princess herself. This year is even a bit more special because, as you remember, the Mary Foundation celebrate its 10th anniversary, which has already been celebrate with a big dinner, here. The reception is a great place for the Crown Princess to thanks all for the previous year and to welcome a new one. A few pictures have been shared from the gathering and everything seems to be in a great mood, here. Also the foundation's CEO Helle Østergaard attended the reception. Both women took plenty of time talking with all the attendances. A really lovely tradition. Christmas is without doubt my favourite time a year and this is why -we are gathered with friends and family; business partners and collaborators.
Red is without doubt connected with Christmas. And leadership and power. Spot on for the occasion. Do you recognize the dress? It is from Dolce & Gabbana worn only a couple of months ago on September 28th when the Crown Prince couple attended the grand opening of LEGO House, here. At the time we got more than just a glimpse of her complete outfit. This was not the case on Thursday. But the significant stitching identified what dress she was actually wearing. Mary embraced the style with a golden Orit Elhanati necklace and diamond rings from Ole Lynggaard Copenhagen. Not to forget; a Mary Foundation-brooch shaped as a butterfly like their logo. On a few other occasions she has been wearing the brooch before. She matched it all with a red nail polish, a blow out and elegant makeup. I would love to have seen what pair of shoes she had chosen to wear for the occasion.
