Photo exhibition #Childmothers

Monday, November 12th

From Rome in Italy, to Aarhus in Denmark. The Crown Prince Couple has just arrived home from a three days business visit in Italy, here, here, here. On Monday the Crown Princess traveled to Aarhus to attend the opening of a photo exhibition called '#Childmothers' and the launch of the State of World Population Rapport. Both events took place at DOKK1 in Aarhus.

Despite the cold weather she was warmly welcomed by students from Ellekærskolen and Frederiksbjerg School. Also Minister of Development Corporations, Ulla Tørnæs attended the event, along with representatives from UNFPA's Nordic office, the United Nations and a Councilman.

The exhibition is part of a bigger project. Previous exhibitions and a book by the same name are also part of the '#Childmothers' project. The Crown Princess shared a few words of her own in the book, in the preface. This exhibition shows portraits of girls living in among others Burkina Faso, Jordan and Haiti. Every single one of them became a mother in age between 12 and 15. Several speeches were given on stage. Crown Princess Mary gave her own speech.

As much as I have found out about the event, as little do I know about her clothes. Mary showed up in Aarhus wearing a brand new coat. It looks like tweed in both green, blue and purple. Difficult to tell what specific colour it is. Her new coat reminds me of something YDE Copenhagen would make. But I still do not know a thing about where it is from. Does it remind you of anything? She matched the new coat with a black turtleneck blouse and trousers in the same colour. Very flattering.

Mary embraced the style with a pair of black pumps or pointed boots. I have a hard time figuring out whether she is wearing pumps or boots. Could be both actually. Then I see diamond earrings and her golden bangle from Cartier; maybe even a diamond ring. Beautiful pieces of jewellery. And then that belt again. Kinda annoy me that I cannot find out where it is from. A very simple piece of accessory, but it work with both trousers and skirts, as well as dresses. In general, a great outfit for this time a year. Something you would wear?

  1. The ring shape makes me think it's her Dulong Balloon ring.

    1. I have not been able to find any pictures showing her ring. Do you have one? But she could be wearing a ring from Dulong Fine Jewelry :)

    2. Just looking at it's silhouette from this picture. It just seems to pop out/extend from her finger more than other rings, which made me think of the balloons unique shape.

    3. You are right about the shape. It could very well be a 'Balloon ring'. At the moment I can't tell for sure, but I will keep an eye on pictures from the event. Thanks for sharing your observations ;)
