Gala dinner at Christiansborg palace

Saturday, November 7th

Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary hosted a gala dinner at Christiansborg palace in Copenhagen on the occasion of the Trilateral Commission meeting.

On Saturday the 7th of November, the Crown Prince couple hosted a gala dinner on occasion of the Trilateral Commission meeting at the end of a three-day conference, which took place at Danish Industry for the commission's European members. The dinner was held at Christiansborg palace in the hall with the characteristic black and white floors and colourful tapestry. I don't know if you keep an eye on their calendar, but this dinner is really something I have been looking forward to in a very long time. Therefor it has been terrible to wait days for pictures from the event, but we finally got some. And it was differently worth waiting for. During the three-day conference, Crown Prince Frederik gave a speech and got the chance to talk with some of the members on the meeting's different topics -like how to improve cooperation politically and economically between various regions of the world.
From the outside Christiansborg palace does not look that special at all, which of course is just my opinion, but the second you enter the first room you immediately see how magnificent it is. Every room is beautifully decorated with huge chandeliers hanging from the ceiling in every room. You see old paintings everywhere along with the most overwhelmingly furnitures. It is differently worth a visit. You are led from one room to another and every room gets more fantastic than the previous. In the middle you find the Great Hall or Riddersalen in Danish. The chandeliers are even bigger, the floor is like a huge chessboard and everywhere you look these colourful tapestries are hanging on the walls. The Great Hall has been used for numerous royal dinners, birthdays as well as state visits. You get mesmerized by entering the room. The unique tapestries are made by the sculptor Bjørn Nørgaard and they were a gift to the Queen in 1990 when she celebrated her 50th birthday. The 17 tapestries tell the 1000 year history of Denmark. Ten years later, in 2000, the tapestries were done and placed in the Great Hall on occasion of the Queen's 60th birthday. The Great Hall measures 40 meters long and 10 meters high, here.

Why do I adore Mary so much? Because she unexpectedly shows up in a golden jacquard fitted dress wearing matching pumps. That's why. It was so much worth waiting for to get a glimpse of her attending the gala dinner. I really think every royalist turned their heads and looked just one more time to see how dazzling Mary was. How was your first reaction when you saw her in the golden wonder? Mary looks good in almost everything from trousers to dresses, but she also chooses her clothes with great care. Most women would look like a disco ball wearing such a dress, but not Mary. I expressed to you who much I really wanted to identify this new golden evening dress and with the precious help from Heaven and Kate, the dress has now been found. The golden wonder is from Prada.  She paired it with her golden glitter pumps from Gianvito Rossi to make the outfit look even more stunning. Among others, she has worn them at the INDEX: Award 2015 in Helsingør, here and at the Reumert Award 2015, here. She matched everything beautifully with Cenius & Bach earrings and a golden diamond bracelet -which I still do not know designed. I also spotted her wearing the box clutch from Judith Leiber. The perfect clutch to the most amazing evening outfit.

Dress: Prada Short Dress in Beige
