INDEX Award 2013 in Copenhagen

August, 29

Crown Princess Mary attended the INDEX Award in Copenhagen. This is the world's largest design award and Crown Princess Mary handed over five award to the sum of €100,000.

This was a really surprising outfit, to see the purple Prada dress was amazing! I think Mary really surprised us with this outfit. Wearing her bright purple dress she was given the title as the best dressed woman at the INDEX award. What a title to get and I really think she deserves it. I'm not sure I would have chosen the same accessories as she did but why not? Sometimes life is too short to wear 'safe' clothes, it is fun to mix and match prints, colours and wear clothes again years later and see how your style have developed. This is exactly what I think when I see her in this particular dress. My guess is that she wore it the first time in around 2008 or 2009 on a visit to... somewhere in the world (Thailand?). At that time her style was very classic and feminine, these two words really described what she was wearing and how. Today Mary is a embracing a more modern style and she's playing with colours and prints lately. This is a great example. I have never been able to find her violet/purple dress as a model but the Hollywood star Kirsten Davis has been seen in the exact same one identified as Prada. Her hairstyle is also eye-catching and if you love it as much as I do and is ready for a challenge you find a similar up do right here! Good luck everybody. 

When I finally stopped staring at the stunning dress and her hair my eyes caught her glittering pointed pumps. They might be one of the reasons why she was given the title as the best dressed because shoes is really something that create a woman and show who she is. By wearing these Gianvito Rossi (Pre-A/W 2012) glitter pumps, with a print of leopard, Mary gave me the sense of independence and... girl power! Unbelievable that a pair of shoes can tell so much. This entire outfit  shone of independence and confidence. Royal Outfit of Crown Princess Mary identified the glitter leopard pumps, thank you so much for the help! Because they are from his Pre-A/W 2012 collection they are no longer available, so if you are interested you might find them pre-owned. With the satin yellow Yves Saint-Laurent well I'm amazed. In the same glitter effect she wore expensive Jewelscph earrings. With this outfit Mary takes the classic princess-look to a entire new level! Please, Mary show us more of this.

Inauguration of Language Center

August, 29

Crown Princess Mary attended the inauguration of a new language center located in Aarhus, as patron of Danish Refugees (Dansk Flygtningehjælp).

When Mary came to Denmark back in 2003/2004 one of her challenges was to learn the Danish language which is told to be one of the hardest to learn. She did a really great job but she is differently not the only to learn Danish. Past the years I have heard some several readers that they have the same wish. Go for it! Even though it sounds hard why not try? At yesterdays inauguration Mary attended the opening of a new language center in Aarhus where she met some of those who is standing in front of the new language. I wish them all the best! Do not let a struggle stop you.

At yesterdays event I was overwhelmed by her outfit. The black and the bright grass green. Really chic! Her new pleated skirt has been identified by Royal Outfits of Crown Princess Mary as Baum und Pferdgarten (Autumn 2012) and with my love for green clothes and accessories I'm already a fan. Because she chose the basic to be black and the only piece of clothes in another colour was the green skirt.  Ones eyes are drawn to the Baum und Pferdgarten skirt. Am I right? She takes the boring black to a new level with some colours. Wonderful! Royal Outfits of Crown Princess Mary did also found her brand new black leather belt from BOSS Hugo Boss makes her look really modern. Very sophisticated with the 3/4 black blouse.

Black leather are often associated with something a bit different then Crown Princess Mary. Once we have seen her in a black leather skirt matched with a powder pink blouse, never mind, this outfit was characterized by leather accessories. Not too little, not too much. She did a pretty good job choosing SAND pumps, her black Carlend Copenhagen clutch and then we have the significant leather bracelet on her left wrist it has been identified by Pernille as Naledi Copenhagen. When we talk about bracelets she was also wearing her mother-and-daugther Ivory Bogota and Royal Bracelet from Shamballa Jewels. Under her dark loose hair you could see a pair of new earrings, I assume that Marianne Dulong is the designer because of the characteristic golden circle. Do you like her rock-and-roll outfit?

Day 2: Visit to Jordan

August, 22

Crown Princess Mary visit a center for abused women in Amman. The center is supported by two Danish organization; KVINFO and Danner. 1

Mary you are amazing! When she visited the center for abused women in Amman, the women were crying so heartbreaking to see. I fell their pain. Mary showed her sympathy and tried to comfort the women. They were hugging her all the time and kissing her on the checks. How to comfort someone who is so sad and have so many traumas? By listing. Show that you truly are interested. Exactly what Mary did. This scandinavian woman in her red dress and loose brown hair was so patient. All her attention was given to the women. To me the pictures speak for themselves. Again it's really not important what she's wearing, how expansive it is or anything. What I like it to see that she's wearing all reused stuff. Nothing overwhelming or too laud at all. This is the last day she is in Jordan but only two days really make a difference. 

Thanks for following her visit with me.

Day 1: Visit to Jordan

August, 21

Crown Princess Mary and Christian Friis Bach, Minister of Development, visited Jordan and their refugees. The reason for their visit was to focus on the war in Syria and all the refugees who are suffering during this war. Crown Princess Mary are visiting refugee camps 1

This is such an important visit, not only for Denmark to have a Crown Princess who take the time to actually do a visit like this but also for all the over 120,000 refugees who are running for their lives and only try to survive. We all know how much these people suffer and it makes me so happy to know that Mary use her title as Crown Princess to support and help those people. Because they really need help. What I like when I see all the pictures from today and every other visit is the way Mary act. No one is too small or poor to get her attention. She talks to as many children and old people as possible. I think it is important to Mary that she see with her own eyes that the help she try to give actually help. We can't imagine how it is to be right there; look at those who badly need some help and as one person can't do a thing. With Mary we can. I respect her so much, to be open hearted and do something about the issues. To me Mary is more like a star. She know that there is photographers and journalists everywhere following every single step of hers and still she is down on the ground talking to the children and comfort them. All her attention is given to the refugees. To see one be surrounded by so many is incredible and almost impossible. I'm impress by her care and sympathy.  

It is important to me to give all attention to her job because this is about human life. That's why her clothes must go a side. A thing to mention is her clothes is not too laud. You find what I know about her look down below from the beginning of the day to a late evening event.

KMD IRONMAN Copenhagen

August, 18

Crown Prince Frederik participated in the KMD Ironman in Copenhagen. Crown Princess Mary and her two oldest children, Prince Christian and Princess Isabella, they were there to cheer on Crown Prince Frederik.

Love that Mary brought their two children with her to cheer on their father when he participated in on of the physical hardest sports in the world - the ironman. A triathlon where you swim 3.8 kilometers, then 180 kilometers on a bike and last you run a marathon on 42.2 kilometers. That's the reason for the name Ironman. I think it is so cool to have a future King who actually did this. After this Frederik was all over the news everywhere, both in Denmark and abroad. Well done!

Mary was herself so sporty in her navy blue Moncler vest, just like Prince Christian and Princess Isabella, matched with a navy blue and white striped blouse and jeans. I like when women wear a vest but they really do not fit me at all. Maybe my upper body is too small? Well, never mind. Mary wear it great! Moncler have so many different models and I find it pretty difficult to find the exact same. Take a look at the one I found and let me know what you think - did I manage to find it? Today most people use their phone to keep track on the time, Mary still wear her Cartier watch. I inherited a little gold watch after my great-grandmother and I love to wear it. Wait a moment, is she wearing her husbands golden wedding ring on her middle finger? I think she is. Some years after their weeding in 2004 rumors told that Frederik lost his wedding ring on a trip to Greenland, it has never been confirmed, but this might be the reason why he does not want to wear it today. Very thoughtful of him. Mary will take good care of it. On her opposite wrist she wore her mother-and-daugther Ivory Bogota bracelet and her golden Shamballa Jewels bracelet. By the way, the Ivory Bogota bracelet was identified by Royal Outfits of Crown Princess Mary

Another one of you my beloved readers identified the new grass green and brown tote bag Mary was wearing during the day. First I haven't seen it and then I received a mail with an I.D. Country Road created this new tote bag. Then we have her almost shiny blue and green sneakers, I can't decide whether I hate or love them. They are brand new and come from New Balance. Are they a go or no go? Well, New Balance make very comfortable sneakers. Madonna, the famous singer, designed a collection for Dolce & Gabbana which is where Mary's sunglasses is from. Often the brand is shorted D&G, on the Madonna collection a little M is added made of small starts. 

M for Madoanna - M for Mary!

Performance at the Bellevue Theater

August, 11

Crown Princess Mary attended, unofficial, two performances - The Picture of Dorian Gray & The Elephant Man - at the Bellevue Theater in Copenhagen according to Billed Bladet. Even though this was an unofficial event for Mary I love to see just a few pictures because every time she convince me that her style is real. She is fashionable when and where she is. Official and unofficial. Royal Outfits of Crown Princess Mary found the new floral and tassel kimono, which I like pretty much, from Zara. Several bloggers love this as much as Mary. The style reminded me of Zara and luckily I had some one to help me find it. Thanks! Her lovely glittering earrings are from the Danish jewellery designer Jewlscph. With loose hair and a body-cross body she rocked this outfit.

First Day at School For Princess Isabella

August, 13

Princess Isabella started her first day a Tranegård school today. This is the same school as her brother Prince Christian goes on. Princess Isabella met the press out front of Amalienborg Palace along with her father, Crown Prince Frederik, and her mother, Crown Princess Mary. 1

This is Princess Isabella's big day therefore I think it would be very appropriate to give her all - or most - attention at a day like this. A little shy she stepped out of the doors to Amalienborg Palace followed by her parents. What a smily and sweet 6 year old girl! In Denmark almost every child goes to school when they are around 6 years old. Princess Isabella has reached that age now and is ready for school. On a day like this most children get their very first and own new schoolbag, the same did Princess Isabella. Proud she wore her Alpine schoolbag, which to mention is not a expensive one. Great to see that even though she's a little royal girl she can wear sometimes inexpensive. As only 6 years old Princess Isabella already have the most amazing style might be with the influence of her mother. She was in a purple printed blouse with a ribbon in the waist (in the same colour as her fathers shirt!!), grey knee-lenght shorts and pink sandals, there perfect first-day-at-school outfit. Then we have the little bracelet on her right wrist, the exact same model as her mother is wearing today! A sweet detail that they are wearing the same things. The bracelets are from Ivory Bogota.

Princess Isabella was one happy girl and her parents were so proud of her! This isn't just a big day for  her, I think her parents realize that their little girl is about to become a grown up girl. The first day at school is a special day to remember and we're so lucky they share the happiness with us. Mary's smile melted my heart. Just like her daughter she was well dressed but casual. Theresa identified her new white silk blouse as Isabel Marant, thanks! The blouse have so many dazzling embroidered details, a beautiful one. She added a pair of black capri trousers - could be her trousers from Elise Gug - which gave her a casual and modern look. The Christian Louboutin pumps I love more then anything else and they are stunning for this outfit. With those pumps her look is so fashionable! When it comes to the accessories she also chose some amazing pieces; the My Friend necklace from Charlotte Lynggaard with an extra penguin pendant and a black tassel, her Shamballa Jewels bracelet and of course her mother-and-daughter bracelet from Ivory Bogota

I wish Princess Isabella all the best in the future with her school.

Day 2: Copenhagen International Fashion Fair 2013

August, 9

In the afternoon, Crown Princess Mary attended Mi-No-Ros' fashion show in addition to the Copenhagen International Fashion Fair (CIFF) in the Bella Center, Copenhagen.

Mary surprises me every times I see her. Her sense of style is magnificent! Her elegance give her everything she need and with her sparkling personality she can wear almost any piece of clothes, any piece of jewellery and shoes. The important thing is that you wear the clothes and not the other way around. Almost at every event she is driven by a crown-car to the door and there is only a few steps to the where she needs to be. Therefor I love to see her walk a few more steps, just to see how she walks and how she acts when she's public. It also give a sense of how the clothes fit her and my heart was beating heavily when I saw the first picture of her in this dreamy pastel blue Baum und Pferdgarten dress! My thanks goes to Kate who identified the new 100 % silk dress. I'm fallen in love with the short inner dress and the long shear without. The colour reminds me of the ocean and ice-cream. 

If you ask me, this dress gives its owner so many options and I love the accessories Mary has chosen. - simple but interesting. The new long diamond necklace from Piaget makes her upper body look longer and without transferring attention from the blue wonder, the Piaget necklace came to its right with this dress. From my over all favourite jewellery collection, she wore earrings from Ole Lynggaard Copenhagen's Winter Frost collection. A collection made to impress! Jérôme Dreyfuss is the designer of her pretty colourful clutch and even though her shoes were printed in other colours it worked so good. 

When we talk about shoes; aren't her new heeled sandals amazing?! I can't stop staring. Her heeled sandals are one of these things I just need to find. Sometimes when Mary wear a new piece of clothes etc. I just know when there is something I need to find. It comes like an obsession to me. When I start a search like this, I try all her usual shoe designers - that's almost obvious. But this time it wasn't that easy because she added a new shoes designer to her collection. The designer is Brazilian Alexandre Birman. What I hope now is that she'll wear them again!

Day 1: Copenhagen International Fashion Fair 2013

August, 08

Crown Princess Mary attended the opening of Copenhagen International Fashion Fair (CIFF) 2013 which took place in Bella Centre. She was shown brands as Ganni and Savannah Wild.

What is Copenhagen International Fashion Fair - CIFF?
The Copenhagen International Fashion Fair or CIFF has since 1993 been settled in the Bella Center in Copenhagen. A cooperation between Danish Textile & Clothes and Bella Center. The fashion fair is held twice a year and is now one of the largest in Europe with thousand of men's, women's and children's collections of clothes, shoes etc. Read more about CIFF here 1

Now the time is up for the yearly Copenhagen International Fashion Fair. Events like this are some Mary have been visiting for many years and every single time she get all the attention. Today she was overwhelming beautiful with her porcelain skin and dark brown hair. Because of the national and international attention she really have to look her best and she differently did! She... was glowing like a star, a movie star. She was so happy and smiling all the time that makes me happy. Amazing. 

When I first saw the new dress I was a bit surprised because of the mix of lace, dots, the satin fabric the dress is made of. But after a few minutes I had been looking at it multiple times it's actually really pretty. Usually I'm not a fan of mixing so many prints together but the designer, Signe Bøgelund-Jensen (Spring/Summer 2013), made it work! A very unique dress. I want to thank all of you who gave me information on the dress, this time you found it before me. In the same dark blue colours, she added topaz earrings from Danish Jewlscph. Beautiful to her dark brown hair. Her eye make was in the same dark brown colour which gave her eyes a intense look.  Before I'll talk about all the stunning accessories we'll take a look at the heeled sandals. I have a penchant for shoes, all kind of shoes especially the heeled once. I have the conviction that one can see a lot about a person by looking at their shoes. Maybe I'm just a bit crazy. It is a long time since we first saw these Ralph Lauren sandals, but I fell in love with them instantly. It took me and many others quite some time to identify them. Now we know!

Mary is a wonderful woman when it comes to the composition of the clothing and accessories. I think sometimes it may be difficult to get everything to fit. What I admire Mary for is that she chooses accessories at the same time fit the rest of the outfit but also stand out. That was the case today. The dark blue Signe Bøgelund-Jensen dress and pink Adax by Stine Goya coloured clutch are complimenting colours which means the two colours make each other light up. Great match! On her left ring find she wore her engagement- and wedding ring, on her other ring finger it was a golden Marianne Dulong ring. I'm pretty sure Mary has designed the ring herself when it comes to the different jewellery stones. Remarkable piece of work. Marianne Dulong is also the designer of the two upper gold bracelets and the pink ball bracelet is from Shamballa Jewels
