The International Day of the Girl Child 2019

11 October

The morning of October 11th was a very special day for the 14 year old Farzana from Bangladesh. She was invited to visit Crown Princess Mary in her home at Amalienborg Castle. Her visiting the Crown Princess was on occasion of the International Day of the Girls Child arranged by UN. Farzana comes from Citi Polli in Bangladesh - one of the country's many slums. She told the Crown Princess about her upbringing and her work as a volunteer. In particular, she works to fight child marriages and encourage children and young people to continue going to school. And she is 14 years old.

UN's International Day of the Girl Child aim to raise awareness of the issues girls around the world faces every day because of their gender.

Crown Princess Mary and Farzana also attended a more official celebration of the girl's day. That took place at Gasværksvejens School in Copenhagen. They arrived together and met the press. To me it seems like the Crown Princess was utterly proud of the young fighter. Visiting Gasværksvejens School both Crown Princess Mary and Farzana talked about how important school is for girls to have the right to go to school.

During her day accompanied by Farzana, who was beautifully dressed in a colorful and printed dress, Mary wore a printed Erdem blouse and fitted black trousers. She has also worn the blouse with grey trousers, but black makes the blouse shine. With a black leather belt she enhanced her natural waistline. Arriving to Gasværksvejens School Mary had chosen her old Prada coat. I am not sure how it kept her warm, because it looks rather thin. Personally I am already wearing my wool-blend coat and knitted hat - soon followed scarves and leather gloves.

Mary embraced the style with diamond earrings. As with the belt I still do not know where these earrings are from. The style is expensive and so are the white and yellow diamonds. To match the rest of her outfit she wore a single diamond ring from Ole Lynggaard Copenhagen and her chunky heels from Jimmy Choo.

What I really like about this outfit is her hair. Loves how it almost floats on her one shoulder. She seems very fond of curly hair lately. And it suits her, right?
