Day 2. Business and cultural promotion in Texas

12  March

During the day

For three days, the Crown Princess is on a business and cultural visit in Austin and Houston, Texas, USA. About now she has attended both an event to promote women leaders, payed a visit to 'Danish Gastronomy - A Michelin experience' and met with Texas' Governor, here.

On Tuesday, March 11, Crown Princess Mary had traveled to Houston. She was warmly welcomed with a meeting with Houstons Mayor, Sylvester Turner at Houston City Hall. What a friendly and smiling man Sylvester Turner. I am sure he was more than proud to welcome the Crown Princess to his city and tell her all about how wonderful it is. As part of the welcoming ceremony she also attended the launch of a collaboration between Houston and Denmark focusing on urban development and climate adaptation. It is all about sharing visions, ideas and technology to be able to withstand climate changes. And really, Crown Princess Mary was in a great spirit. She was all smiles and happy eyes.

Meeting Houstons Mayor at the arrival to Houston Mary had chosen to wear one of her old floral dresses. A dress that comes from Giambattista Valli. She first wore this beautiful dress when the French Presidential couple visited Copenhagen last year, here. Back then she embraced the style by wearing black pointed pumps and a matching box clutch. This year in Houston black had turned into nude accessories instead. Both the ostrich clutch from Naledi Copenhagen and leather pumps from Prada have been seen the previous day.

Once again we got a chance to get a look at her other accessories. Her diamond earrings are an old pair created by Danish Dulong Fine Jewelry. They go way back. Its pendant is removable and can be replaced with different stones. Through the years we have both seen them worn with a diamond pendant, one in coral, rose quartz, etc. Two bracelets worn at the event in Houston are also from Dulong Fine Jewelry. I would not be surprised if pictures would show her golde Cartier bangle as well. I was just not able to find one. Ole Lynggaard Copenhagen made two fo her diamond rings. The third one I have never identified.

Gala dinner

Crown Princess Mary's first day in Texas was packed from early morning till late in the evening. Her second day wasn't as busy. First she was welcomed by Houstons Mayor, Sylvester Turner. Later she attended the launch of a future collaboration between Houston and Denmark with purpose to share knowledge and solutions on climate changes.

In the evening, the Crown Princess was invited as guest of honor to attend a gala dinner on behalf of her visit. She arrived to Houston Museum of Fine Arts, where the dinner was about to take place. After she was welcomed herself, Crown Princess Mary placed in line and welcomed other guests.

Official representatives and Danish companies working with green energy and pharmaceuticals  and medical equipment also attended the gala dinner along with the Crown Princess.

Mary stunned at the gala dinner. She arrived like Hollywood star in her reused Jesper Høvring gown. It has been two years since we first saw that inducible gown. Do you remember her wearing it when the King and Queen of Belgium visited Copenhagen in 2017, here? Mary had chosen to style her evening gown with black glitter pumps from Pura Lopez and a matching box clutch from Sergio Rossi. She reused the pumps from the previous day.

Cartier created that magnificent golden bangle and Dulong Fine Jewelry made the other one. Stunning pieces. Both earrings, bracelet and ring matched in colour. Purple stones and diamonds are a lovely combo. Never thought these two colours would look good together, but they really do.

Love her curly hairstyle. I often miss these feminine hairstyles, but we rarely sees them. Now we did and it looks beautiful. She even accessorized her hairstyle with, what I believe is a, PICO Copenhagen French hair-comb. I like what I see. Do you?
