Day 1. Official visit to Paris

23 June

The previous day, Crown Princess Mary participated the Free of Bullying-Race - a project part of the Mary Foundation, here. A wonderful day. She kept the great spirit the following day when arriving to Paris.

During the day

Not much has been announced about this trip other than she was going to visit Paris; open an exhibition and inaugurate a new altarpiece in Frederik's Church in Paris. That is exactly what happened. Sunday noon she arrived to Danmarkshuset to open the exhibition Ombre Flore created by artist, Jesper Christensen. He was also the one to welcome the Crown Princess along with Torben Nielsen, Director of Danmarkshuset. The artist himself guided her around the exhibition. Few every gets that experience. To be guided around the exhibition by the artist him-/herself.

What a mood. Crown Princess Mary was one big smile at the opening and later when she attended the inauguration of the new altarpiece the Frederik's Church. The new altarpiece is made by Jesper Christensen. Apparently he was inspired by the Danish poet, B.S. Ingeman such as musician and artist, David Bowie. The royal house inform that the center piece represent the Garden of Getsemane in Jerusalem. Four years. That is how long it took Jesper Christensen to make this beautiful new altarpiece for the church in Paris.

During her first appearance in France, Mary was dressed in a brand new dress. It almost looks like a peplum top, paired with a matching skirt. The dress is made by Danish designer Elsa Adams, here. On several occasions she has made dresses worn by Mary's daughters. It is indeed very girly cause of the color, print and that white lace detail. What was your first thought about her new creation?

She embraced the feminine style by wearing color-matching pumps. They are from Gianvito Rossi, worn on numerous different occasions. Among others on her trip to Ethiopia a couple of months ago, here. Back then she wore the pumps with a floral printed dress. Shows how one piece can be worn beautifully with different clothes. Even the earrings chosen matched in color. Mary has worn these earrings quite a few times now, but I still do not know a thing about them. But they are stunning.

The little clutch is also still a mystery to me. On a previous occasion I discussed with you when we first saw it, here. Both the rather large diamond ring and three of five bracelets are made by Dulong Fine Jewelry. All pieces are reused. Then she was wearing her golden Cartier bracelet, and a fifth one which I believe could be from Ole Lynggaard Copenhagen.

Evening dinner

In the evening Crown Princess Mary was invited to dinner by the Danish ambassador in France, Michael Starbæk Christensen and his spouse, Giovanni de Carvalho. She was warmly welcomed at the arrival with handshakes, smiles and welcoming words. All three of them seemed delighted to met each other.

You see the three of them in the picture below - Michael Starbæk Christensen to the left, Crown Princess Mary in the middle and Giovanni de Carvalho to the right. I don't know much about what happened in the evening, but I guess they had a splendid dinner and a great talk.

Now we are talking. I absolutely love her outfit. The sophisticated combination of a white sleveless blouse and a red/white printed maxi skirt. Wauw. That is the only thing to say if you ask about my opinion. Actually we have seen this specific combination before. It was on a visit to Cap Town in South Africa back in 2014, here. Back then she attended a reception and wore this exact outfit. Well blouse and skirt. Also think I saw a white scarf.

Mary accessorized her look with large (and reused) Amrita Singh earrings. She first wore them in 2009 when attending DANSK Fashion Award at Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek, here. This is, till now, the first and last time we have seen her wear these earrings. I kinda missed them. I own them myself and they are as lovely in real life as they look on pictures. Again she wore three golden bracelets (and a diamond ring) from Dulong Fine Jewelry. A fourth one is from Cartier and the fifth I strongly believe is made by Ole Lynggaard Copenhagen. The clutch is the same as earlier. Ralph Lauren (collection: SS11) designed her chic heeled sandals.
