The second New Year reception

Thursday, January 4th

Once again Queen Margrethe and the Crown Prince couple were gathered at Christiansborg castle to celebrate the very last New Year reception. Representatives from major Danish organizations royal patrons were specially invited such as officers from the Armed Forces and the Emergency Agency of
1st, 2nd. and 3rd. rank. More than 900 guests were invited to the reception. Feel the atmosphere in the video below that also show the royal family members arriving to Christiansborg in Copenhagen. The Crown Princess has posted a few of her own photos from the reception, here. For sure I am not the only one loving these photos taken by the Crown Princess, right?

For many of you it is already old new what I am about to tell you. Nevertheless, you are going to hear it all one more time. Had a hard time finding pictures from the last reception. Did you have the same problem? I was dying to see what Mary was wearing. Now I know. She showed up wearing an all reused outfit, but in a brand new combination. One we have never seen before. Mary embraced a polished look by wearing a brown velvet jacket featuring a waist band, worn here, here & here. Never been identified. The jacket was beautifully matched with a reused skirt from Rachel Gilbert. Mary impressed the world wearing the skirt for the first time when she covered Vogue Australia in 2016, here. She had accessorized her outfit with large two-tone earrings from Jewlscph, a Orit Elhanati necklace in gold and a Cartier bracelet. Such as her old satin clutch from Bottega Veneta. Because of you I have now seen a picture of her shoes. Differently seems like they are from Gianvito Rossi, but I wonder whether they are patent or suede? Let me know what you think. That simple ponytail and natural make-up completed one good looking outfit with perfection.

    I saw a sliver of the shoes the crown princess wore and it looks very much like the "Pink Patent Leather Pump" by Gianvito Rossi. The ball skirt teamed with the brown velvet jacket was definitely a "winner".



    1. Thanks for sharing your observation with me. Seems like I'm the only one who was troubled finding pictures of her shoes. Gianvito Rossi seems to be mentioned every time. From what I have seen I think you are absolutely right. Time to update the post.
