A media competition & the Crown Princess Scholarship

Thursday, May 17th



On Thursday morning, the Crown Princess arrived to Politikens House and was in a splendid mood. She was about to attend the presentation of the project Media Competition 2018 and its winners. More than 500 school classes participated the competition and have all created storied with the theme 'Love yourself -body and ideals'. The participants both focused on bullying, gender, eating disorders etc. Music was played and everybody had a great time -even the Crown Princess made a few moves to the music. Following, eight school classes were announced winners of the competition and the Crown Princess later entered the stage to congratulate all of them with a symbolic speech.

Attending the presentation of winner of the Media Competition 2018 was not the only event in her calendar that day. The Crown Princess also handed over her Crown Princess Mary Scholarship at University of Copenhagen. These scholarships are each year given to two exchange students from University of Copenhagen's Australian collaborators on occasion of these students stay in Denmark. Since the royal couples wedding, her scholarship has been handed over to two students each year. This year Tennille Louise Vitagliano from Sydney University and Max Kausman from Monash University were given the prestigious scholarships, personally handed over by the Crown Princess herself.



Seems like summer has finally arrived to Denmark and it is about time we get to see some real spring outfits. Like the one she wore presenting The Crown Princess Mary Scholarship and congratulations the winners of Media Competition 2018. She had chosen a brand new white blouse and reused beige trousers. From Royals & Fashion I learned that her new blouse is from Reiss. Think this is the first time we get to see her in their designs. Right? Mary then matched the Reiss-creation with old Massimo Dutti trousers. These are originally part of a suit. So the trousers comes with a matching blazer as seen in Japan on the 5th day, here. Kate is the one who made me aware of the identity of the trousers. A first I thought they were dusty pink. I was completely wrong. She embraced the style of a really chic spring look with jewellery from among others Dulong Fine Jewelry, Cartier and Ole Lynggaard Copenhagen. Then we also got to see that Pico hairclip again as worn during the first day of Copenhagen Fashion Summit 2018, here. Love the idea of hairaccessories. Personally, I have come to love bows and hairclips like Mary's. Her pointed python pumps are from Gianvito Rossi. The new clutch bag is more a mystery to me. Can't seem to find out where it is from. Any ideas?

Copenhagen Fashion Summit has been an annual event since 2009. Now the Crown Princess is patron of the summit. As front promoter of the event she attended the summit on its official opening day last Wednesday. When she arrived to DR's concert house in Copenhagen, CEO of Copenhagen Fashion Summit Eva Kruse welcomed her with a great smile. From what I know, the two of them has become quite good friends. The Crown Princess also attended a pre-event the day before, here. At the official opening ceremony she entered the stage and gave the opening speech. A great speech, here. According to the royal house website, Crown Princess Mary watched the presentation of Taking the pulse of the fashion industry and the following dialog Digitization and the future of fashion.

What an outfit. Somehow I do not know how she manages to surprise me after all these years. I know we can expect almost anything from her and still I am overwhelmed and surprised. I absolutely love what Mary wore during the official opening of Copenhagen Fashion Summit. The combination of colour and textures are just great. She had matched a plain white button-down with a brand new jacquard skirt in green. Actually, the skirt is originally a dress and it comes from Hennes & Mauritz (collection: H&M Conscious Exclusive). A clever way to transform your old dresses into something new. I feel in love with this match so much that I had to tried myself. I paired a green pleated skirt with a v-neck button-down and black oxfords -and pink glitter socks. That works beautifully as well. Mary then accessorized her summit-outfit with green Dulong Fine Jewelry earrings, a Orit Elhanati necklace and Cartier and Dulong Fine Jewelry bracelets. She was also wearing her ostrich clutch from Naledi Copenhagen and nude Prada pumps. Note that the earrings are not new. She has worn them before a several different occasions, among other things in 2014 at the annual Day of Research, here.

We have already seen the most incredible outfits the last two days and that has amazed me so much. The look she presented to us at the dinner is also so beautiful. Mary dazzled in a reused white creation made by David Andersen -a very talented Danish designer. Do you remember having seen the dress before? First time was when she attended dinner on occasion of Copenhagen Fashion Summit 2014, here. Then a year later she wore it once again on a trip to Germany, here. For years this has been a personal favourite. Loves how the shape looks on her and the match of different fabrics. It has so many interesting details. As seen before, Mary embraced the style with earrings from Annikat and a matching pink Carlend Copenhagen clutch. White and pink is just a wonderful combo, don't you think? Her other jewellery are from Cartier and Dulong Fine Jewelry. She also wore a pair of new shoes -patent leather peep toe pumps with an ankle strap. So far I haven't been able to track them down, mainly because the lack of pictures. Please let me know your ideas.

Day 1. Copenhagen Fashion Summit 2018

Tuesday, May 15th



Tuesday morning the Crown Princess arrived to DR Concert House in Copenhagen to attend the opening of Copenhagen Fashion Summit 2018. The summit is an international conference focusing on sustainable fashion and has the Crown Princess as patron. It first took place back in 2009. At the arrival she was warmly welcomed by Eva Kruse and given flowers from the sweetest flower girl. As part of the opening, EU Commissioner for Competition Margrethe Vestager gave the speech. Usually the Crown Princess herself use to address the opening speech, but not this time. She listened to Margrethe Vestager's words from first raw. The Crown Princess also payed a visit to the Innovation Forum exhibition, where companies presented different sustainable fashion solutions.

It is not the first time Mary has attended Copenhagen Fashion Summit wearing stunning and magnificent outfits. These ones from 2012, here, are some of my personal favourites.  And this one, here, from 2017 is also incredible. We never really know what to expect from her because every time we get surprised but her choices when it comes to clothes and accessories. This year she dazzled in a reused creation from Designers Remix. It goes back to the fashion summit in 2014, here. The dress is sustainably made of 100 % recycled polyester from plastic bottles, here. Personally, I am convinced that the dress from 2014 has been altered into a skirt because she's wearing a reused black blouse from Julie Fagerholt Heartmade. To me an alteration is the only possibility on how to wear it with that black blouse. I requested the designers and are still waiting for an answer. What do you think? As accessories she had chosen earrings (and a ring) from Pomellato, an Orit Elhanati necklace, bracelets from Cartier and Dulong Fine Jewelry. A really beautiful combination. She also embraced the style by wearing a reused suede clutch from Hugo Boss, first worn at a swimming event, here, and baby blue Gianvito Rossi pumps. These was worn during the second day in Japan, here. I am sure you remember them. Another thing I want you to notice is her hairstyle. I missed these updo's for so long. She even added a little hairclip from Pico.
