Monday, August 21st
At this years UNLEASH event taking place in Aarhus, the Crown Princess was invited to attend. UNLEASH gathers about 1,000 young talents from all over the world and their creative and innovative solutions to reach UN's 17 sustainable world goals. A project the Crown Princess has represented at previous events. The event started on August 13th and lasted till August 21st, which is also where the UNLEAH Award Show took place in Musikhuset in Aarhus. Famous people from everywhere in the world entered the stage to give a speech. One of them was the Danish Crown Princess; speaking about new opportunities and how this event is challenging us to work together to find solutions to worldwide issues. Her speech has been praised and I understand why. Take a few minutes and listen, here. Earlier in the day she was given the opportunity to see some of the young talent's inventions and creative developments. And many of them caught the Crown Princess' interest. I am truly honored that Denmark host an event like this.
Mary was really dressed up for the occasion. No doubt about that. She had chosen to wear her beautiful belted red Dolce & Gabbana dress. A stunning dress we have seen several time before. But I am actually not quite sure when we saw it the first time. I claim it was in 2014 when she attended a meeting before Christmas with the Mary Foundation, here. Then Mary appeared wearing the dress again in 2015 at a Christmas show hosted by DR, here and as you remember earlier this year, here. When do you think she wore it better? At the UNLEASH event she embrace a chic and business-like style by wearing a black blazer and python pumps from Gianvito Rossi. Talking about shoes, it is worth mentioning that during the day she changed to a pair of cap-toe ballet flats. I was so sure we had seen those ballet flats before. Still, it took me two days to recall when she wore them. It was in 2011, visiting New York along with the Crown Prince on a official state visit, here. We rarely see her in ballet flats at official event, but this time was different. As accessories Mary had chosen her favourite jewellery from Hartmann's, Orit Elhanati, Dulong Fine Jewelry, Cartier and Ole Lynggaard Copenhagen. Another beautiful piece worn at UNLEASH is an good old brooch. I haven't heard anyone talking about her daisy brooch. So, now I will probably be the first one to mention it and the fact that it was worn before. It was on June 3rd 2010 on an official visit in Washington, here. Ten years later, Mary dazzled like a star wearing her Daisy brooch from Georg Jensen. Matching the outfit perfectly, she also wore red Prada sunglasses and a Dolce & Gabbana tote bag.
