Day 2. Business promotion visit in Paris

08 October

During the day 

The Crown Prince Couple were on a three day visit in Paris with business delegation consisting of representatives from 50 different Danish companies. The promotion visit focuses on, among other things, sharing knowledge in the field of healthcare and energy, which is why the visit is entitled "Denmark and France - together for a better life and a sustainable future".

The couple were separated most day. Not until the evening the couple were on their own. First thing in the morning Crown Prince Frederik attended the French National Assembly, Assemblée Nationale. He then sailed to Île Séguin. Today Île Séguin is a urban development project. Later on the Crown Prince attended a seminar on vindpower in Cæur Défense. In the afternoon he visited the urban development conference "Development of Greater Paris". This is just some of the events Crown Prince Frederik attended on Tuesday.

Meanwhile, Crown Princess Mary payed a visit to the nursing home Korian Monceau that is part of the Korian Group - the largest provider of private care services in Europe. The occupant of the nursing home clearly enjoyed their visit from Denmark. Later on the Crown Princess participated the seminar "Purchasing and innovations" in the Danish church in Paris. She gave a speech at the event. Before visiting Les Peupliers (a private hospital), she had lunch at the Danish restaurant Flora Danica located in Danmarkshuset.

I did not hide that I really (really) loved her outfits the first day in Paris. The wonderful blue dress with the white details and the new dotted evening dress, here. The following day, Mary impressed my one more time. She was dressed in her incredible custom-made Mark Kenly Domino Tan dress, here. A wonderful creation featuring the most amazing details. Just look at those sleeves. We first saw the dress on another business promotion visit to Italy in 2018, here. She belted the dress with that stylish navy blue Max Mara belt.

As jewellery she had chosen first of all, a pair of reused diamond earrings from Ole Lynggaard Copenhagen. They are from my favorite collection called Winter Frost. The three beautiful bracelets are also old and are from Dulong Fine Jewelry, Cartier and Ole Lynggaard Copenhagen. The last one is styled with a moonstone charm from the same designer. Mary also embraced the chic style by wearing expensive diamond rings from Dulong Fine Jewelry and Ole Lynggaard Copenhagen.

Mary is fan of matching things with each other - especially in colors. That is probably why she chose to wear her medium size handbag from Prada and stunning patent leather pumps from Gianvito Rossi. One day I got to have my own pair of Rossi shoes. Does any of you have a pair of Rossi pumps?

Evening dinner

After a long day in Paris the Crown Prince Couple attended dinner in the City Hall, Hôtel de Ville. At the dinner another very special couple also attended. That couple were Prince Joachim and Princess Marie, who are now currently living in France with their children. Both couples seemed in a wonderful spirit both because of the atmosphere and because of them meeting again.

All guests and the four royals were welcomed by and entertained by the Danish Girls Choir which Crown Princess Mary has become patron for, not that long ago. The dinner was hosted by the Danish ambassador in France, Michael Starbæk Christensen. He also welcomed the couple's.

Princess Marie was wearing an incredible black dress. From what I have heard it is a reuse. Mary embrace the dinner by wearing a brand new dress from Moss & Spy. I am not sure how to describe what I see other than: I absolutely love everything about both the new lace dress and the whole outfit. Everything looks so very put together. The elegant of her look is not to describe. What a dress. What an outfit.

What made this such a great outfit is also because of the accessories she had chosen. Even the hairstyle is an accessory that is worth noticing. A large knot decorated with a rhinestone hairpin. The stunning floral shaped earrings featuring shiny diamonds have been purchased on an Bruun Rasmussen Auction. Beautiful. As earlier, Mary wore her Dulong Fine Jewelry and golden Cartier bangle. A really lovely combo. The diamond ring is also from Dulong Fine Jewelry.

She also wore a huge aquamarine blue ring and a matching delicate bracelet. If I am correct, the ring is a gift from her husband that goes quit a few years back in time. But I could be wrong about that. Seems like Mary enjoyed wearing the blue and white combo. So in the evening she also embodied the combination with an old box clutch from Prada and silk pumps from Gianvito Rossi. Imagine wearing silk pumps.

  1. Henriette: Love the blue and white dress worn on the first day especially the pleated detail in the skirt, very Queen Marguerit (esque):).

    The Moss and Spy dress seems to me to be very delicate blue and white embroderied lace perhaps with a bit of stretch to it, cut on the bias as it falls beautifully.Or perhaps the under dress is cut into gores thus giving the shirt that fullness. It too is lovely. Love that on this tour the emphasis at least in clothing is on the 'feminine'. Beautifully tailored dresses that can be worn again and again.



    1. I sense that I am not the only one who have fallen in love with her new Moss & Spy lace dress ;) The dress embraces her silhouette beautifully and is perfect for the occasions. With an outfit like this and alle the other outfits worn in Paris, she has proven why she is a true stye icon.

  2. Hi:

    About the shoes: not too long ago, I had my eye on a particular pair but someone else got it before I could snap it up. I liked it because it was an unusual design for a pump with even an ankle tie, and it was black suede, no less. Oh gnats!!! They are usually so cost prohibitive and I was surprised at the price-- no wonder!!. RW

  3. The cream dress is divine, as one would hope with a bespoke creation made specifically for her, from the fringed details to the split front hem. It was wise to showcase a repeat during their trip to Paris. Max Mara's wide waist belt was a clever buy, it's a statement piece which changes the mood of the ensemble. I believe the off-white version was worn in Rome, where the dress looked more streamlined with the muted colours and elegant updo. Here it is striking, but slightly more relatable with the coordinating tote and youthful ponytail. Both looks are excellent but feel very different. The Moss & Spy dress isn't my personal taste, where it is overtly feminine but there is no denying that the Crown Princess looks enchanting. The fit is beautiful and overall it is extremely romantic with the high neck and godet panels of lace. I particularly liked the dainty diamond hair piece under her updo, the sheer amount of consideration that has gone into this outfit is to be commended. Special mention to Princess Marie who also looks lovely in Christopher Kane, the uncomplicated hair and make up add a lightness to her look.
