Meeting on the world's refugee situation

Tuesday, June 12th

Second time this month the Crown Princess participated a meeting that was not part of her official calendar. On Monday 11th she met with among others former Secretary General of the United Nations, Ban Ki-moon to talk about The UN Live Museum that will be located in Copenhagen, here. The following day she had a meeting with Filippo Grandi, UN's High Commissioner for Refugees that took place at Amalienborg in Copenhagen. She met with him as patron of the Danish Refugee Council. Present at the meeting was also Danish Minister of Development, Ulla Tørnæs and Secretary General of the Danish Refugee Council, Christian Friis Bach. According to the royal house, the current refugee situation was discussed during the meeting and Filippo Grandi filled everyone in on the work done by the UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR).

We haven't seen Mary in anything this black for a long time I believe. Not sure black is the most exciting color to wear these days. Still, the weather has not been as perfect and sunny as we want to the last week and something sophisticated is needed for the occasion. So, she chose to wear this new v-neck, black dress. So far I have not been able to identify it, but it reminds me of something from either Hugo Boss or maybe JOSEPH. Take a look and let me know what you have in mind. Love to hear your thoughts. She belted up the dress with an old Céline belt worn numerous times before, here, here, here. Unfortunately I am not able to tell you for sure, which pair of shoes she was wearing because no pictures show. My guess would be something black to match the dress. Embracing the style to perfection Mary dazzled wearing a few bracelets from Dulong Fine Jewelry, one from Cartier, an Orit Elhanati necklace and of course that gorgeous earrings. They go years back and are from Dulong Fine Jewelry - former Marianne Dulong. She has worn them before but in my mind, it is years ago. I need a little more time to track down a photo for you. Let me know if you find what I am looking to share with all of you.

Meeting about 'UN Live'

Monday, June 11th

On Monday the Crown Princess attended two unofficial meeting about a new project called UN Live, which will become a global UN-museum located in Copenhagen. The UN Live Museum is suppose to act as a global gathering place for UN values and goals. It will be a place for development, problems solving and an invitation for innovation. During the meetings she met with among others, former Secretary General of the United Nations, Ban Ki-moon and CEO of Realdania, Jesper Nygård along with several other representatives from Danish foundations and organizations. From what I see, the Crown Princess was all ears. For years she has supported the United Nations values and goals, and is trying to make the world a better place for especially girls and women across the globe. Can't help myself from thinking that she was inspired by organizations like the United Nations. Looking forward to follow the work on this new museum.

At the two meetings in Copenhagen, Mary had chosen a good old dress from Hugo Boss - not seen for years. A dress like this has been worn by the Crown Princess many times about now, for instance in 2012, here, and 2016, here. Do you remember the dress? When do you think she wore it better? Think it is the first time she wears it with a coat, but it looks brilliant. Talking about the coat, then I only know very little about it though it goes years back in time. I was able to find her wearing it at an event in 2012, here. She has a similar one with black details around the neckline. As seen before, Mary chose to wear her coral, diamond earrings from Dulong Fine Jewelry. These earrings have followed her for years just as with the dress and coat. A clear proof that your clothes can always be mixed and matched, even after more than six years. It is all about creativity and feeling comfortable in what you're wearing. From Ole Lynggaard Copenhagen she accessorized her outfit with both a golden chain bracelet and diamond rings. Prada is the designer of the Saffiano Cuir Double tote from the meeting, as Gianvito Rossi created the navy blue pumps. What a lovely outfit.

The Reumert Awards 2018

Saturday, June 9th

Crown Princess Mary arrived to Skuespilhuset in Copenhagen to attend The Reumert Awards 2018. She was warmly welcomed by CEO of Bikubenfonden, Søren Kaare-Andersen. For several years the Crown Princess has attended the award show honoring performances in Denmark throughout the past year. Handing over these awards goes back to 1998 and was established by Bikubenfonden - the same foundation, who work along the Crown Prince couple honoring artists, organisations etc. with The Crown Prince Couples Prizes. Unfortunately, we only have very little material from her evening in Skuespilhuset. Although I see a very smily and sincere Crown Princess, who gladly posed for the photographers and journalists. During the evening, she had the chance to meet with all the winners and congratulate them. I also want to congratulate all winners with this very special recognition.

No doubt about her impressing my with what she wore during the evening in Skuespilhuset, while attending The Reumert Awards 2018. I absolutely loved this powder pink Stella McCartney dress the frist time we saw it, but somehow I have just come to adore it even more. She looks like a movie star in that pink dream. Love how it makes her silhouette stand out so beautifully. I was inspired to do a new Pinterest board with similar dresses worn by her during the years. You find it here

This time she embraced the style by wearing a few jewellery from among others Cartier and Ole Lynggaard Copenhagen. She added a golden leaf hairpiece to her hairstyle as well. Seems like something she's very fund of these days. Well, hairclips are a clever way to top off a simple hairstyle. The pink clutch is a Prada creation. Last but not least, Mary styled her fairtale evening outfit with matching pumps from Gianvito Rossi.

'European Development Days' in Brussel

Thursday, June 6th

As just one of many, the Danish Crown Princess attended the European Development Days in Brussel, as guest of honor. The European Development Days takes place over two days every 12th year. This year the event theme was "Women and Girls at the Forefront of Sustainable Development: protect, empower, invest". Almost everything the Crown Princess has worked for in several years. She was not the only royal attending. Also Queen Mathilde of Belgium and Queen Letizia of Spain took part in the summit. The event gathered more than 8,000 participants from governments, civil society, universities and international organizations from 140 countries around the world. The Crown Princess attended several different events during the conference. Among others things, she met with UN Secretary-General Young Missionary, Jayathma Wickramanayake and visited the EDD Global Village and its UN Area. She also entered the stage and gave a speech, where she shared a messages in accordance to the theme. Eloquent as always. End of the days in Brussel the Crown Princess participated a meeting with the EU Commissioner for International Work and Development, Neven Mimica.

During her day in Brussel, Mary was dressed in a splendid bright blue dress. To me it looks brand new but reminds me of another red one (nevertheless, that was not the case). It turns out that she in 2016 wore at remarkably similar dress in a darker blue color, here. None of the dresses are yet identified. Therefor I would love to hear your ideas about designers. To me it could be anyone from Prada to Hugo Boss. Talking about Hugo Boss, I need to mention her new white tweed jacket because this new piece has been found at this specific designer. I learned about its identity from Heaven, who have it from Samantha. Thanks to both of you. The combo of a blue dress and white jacket looks really great, don't you think? Makes me wanna try something similar. Maybe a figure hugging dress and a white blazer would do.

Mary embraced a polished and sophisticated outfit by wearing diamond earrings, her snakeskin belt from Balenciaga, matching Gianvito Rossi pumps and one of her Prada handbags. I also see her Orit Elhanati necklace and a dragonfly brooch. She even wore a bright colored nail polish. I always love when she wears nail polished and especially when she chooses these pink colors. What is you favorite color to wear on your nails?

Danish Handball Award Show

Monday, June 4th

It was as guest of honor the Crown Princess arrived to Viborg to attend Danish Handball Award Show along with the Mary Foundation. She was in a splendid when she arrived and was welcomed. I am in no doubt the warm, sunny weather made a big difference. Among others, the Crown Princess met with handball player Mikkel Hansen. The two of them have met occasionally before. They are also in a collaboration with each other because the Mary Foundation, MH24 and MH24 -the association Mikkel Against Bullying began working together back in 2016. At the time, a documentary was made with the two of them about the collaboration, here. The Crown Princess and Mikkel Hansen were interviewed about their future partnership. Now they met again and together they entered the stage and handed over the Anuibulli Award, which was given to the children's department of Aabykro HK in North Jutland. Right before presenting the award, she gave a warmhearted and sincere speech. Among other things, she spoke about her frist meeting with handball - it was during the Olympic Games in Athen. Last thing, if any of you would like to see more from the show then it is broadcasted on Danish television on Monday 8:00 pm local time.

Just as smily as herself, she wore a floral dress from Jason Wu. It is the second time she wears it, but the first time on Danish ground. She showed up wearing this floral dream last year, when attending a dinner on occasion of OECD Forum in Paris, here. Does any of you remember the dress? Somehow I have had the idea that we would see this dress soon. Although I had not expected to see it at this event. Maybe not the most sporty dress. Still she looks gorgeous. Mary embraced a chic summer style by wearing patent rose pumps from Gianvito Rossi - worn on quite many other occasions about now. Such as with the suede Hugo Boss clutch. Personally, I think the accessories are well chosen and looks great to the rest of the outfit. Then we have one of her favourite golden necklaces from Orit Elhanati and brand new earrings in the most incredible pink colour from Jewlscph. She even wore pink nail polish. That does not happen very often. Another piece that caught my eye (maybe the piece that caught my eyes the most) is the belt. Within seconds, I had another belt in mind. Somehow I managed to recall a belt worn by her nine years ago, here. I can't really figure out what the event was, but maybe you did.  I even realized that she wore it at another occasion as well. It was at an event while visiting Washington in 2010, hereI have never been able to identify it, though it looks very similar to one from Prada. In 2010, Mary embraced a Hugo Boss dress with the belt. Cool, right?

'World No Tobacco Day 2018'

Thursday, May 31st

Am I the only now who have had a wonderful week celebrating the Crown Prince? I have the feeling that he has been celebrated throughout the entire world - at least people from most parts of the world have followed the celebrations. But now it is time to get back to work. That is what the Crown Princess did on Thursday. Here she attended the World No Tobacco Day 2018, which is established by The World Health Organisation (WHO) and internationally takes place on May 31st. It is on that occasion Kræftens Bekæmpelse and TrygFonden has collaborated on making Smoke Free Future, which will be held once a year from now on. The Crown Princess attended the event as patron of The World Health Organisation, Regional Office of Europe. A title she has had quite a few years now. At the arrival she was welcomed by Jesper Fisker, the CEO of Kræftens Bekæmpelse, and Gurli Martinussen, CEO of TrygFonden. It was a warmhearted welcoming. After a few speeches and entertainment, she even participated in the untraditional launching of the Time Flies campaign. Think it was a great day for all of them. The Crown Princess was indeed in a splendid mood.

As her wonderful smile; she wore wonderful clothes as well at the day in collaboration with Kræftens Bekæmpelse and TrygFonden. Mary has chosen to wear a reused creamy white suit from Max Mara. Do you remember it? She wore it first at an official visit to Sweden last year, here. At that time she was joined by Crown Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel of Sweden, and the world seemed to love it. For years I have been in love with women wearing suits. Makes a great statement. It looks great and is easy to wear. This time has chose to embrace a chic spring style by wearing a little bit of colours - to be more precise; green. The clutch is from Nina Ricci and seen once before on a business trip to the United States in 2016, here. Again she matched it with something white and it works so well. Don't you think? In the same spectacular colour, Mary accessorized her outfit with brand new earrings from Jewlscph. Their identity has been confirmed by the itself. Beautiful, right? I am sure many of you noticed the rather large ring on her finger. To be clear, it is not new but never identified. Somehow I have always presumed that Ole Lynggaard Copenhagen made it, though I have never been able to find anything like it. Then we have a very familiar pieces - her Orit Elhanati necklace and snake pumps from Gianvito Rossi.
