European conference on grief

22nd September 2022

Crown Princess Mary is patron of the National Grief Center and on that occasion she gave the opening speech at the first European conference on grief, which is hosted Denmark. 

The Crown Princess was not able to physically participate the conference because she was in New York to attended Denmark's candidacy for a seat on the UN Security Council in 2025-2026. Therefor, she gave a video speech. Watch her speech in full length here.

The conference took place on September 22-23 in Copenhagen. It gathered more than 400 researchers and practitioners in the field of health and grief.

We get a small glimpse of Mary's outfit. She paired her stunning white Mark Kenly Domino Tan blouse with golden earrings from Dulong Fine Jewelry. Actually, Mary has worn this combination before. Do you remember when? It was when attending the launch of UNFPA's "State of World Population Report 2022" in May (here). I like the though that she more something similar as in May with wide-legged trousers and a matching belt.

How would you style this blouse?

Day 2. UN's 77th General Assembly

22nd September 2022

Crown Princess Mary joined her husband a day after her husband arrived in New York. On his third day - and her second day - the Crown Princess participated a number of meetings with a focus on the Danish candidacy for the UN Security Council and on the UN's 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

In the morning, she met with Denmark's UN ambassador Martin Bille Hermann to talk about Denmark's candidacy for a seat on the UN Security Council in 2025-26. Later, Crown Princess Mary met with representatives from UNEP to learn more about their global work within the environment and biodiversity agenda. In the afternoon, she spoke at the "How do we best respond to the disproportionate impact of rising food insecurity on women and girls". Read the speech here.

Last event that day was for her to attend  a reception on occasion of lancing the Danish candidacy for the UN Security Council in 2025-2026.

I rarely do not like what Mary is wearing, but the day before (on her arrival), I was troubled about her look. That truly changed the following day. She looked absolutely splendid in that brand new Ba&Sh dress. I learned about this new dress from Heaven, you identified it. It got some incredible, yet simple, details.

Mary accessorized her black dress with golden jewellery from some of the most skilled jewellery designers. Among others, Dulong Fine Jewelry. They created her diamond studded earrings and that huge diamond ring. Actually, they also mastered her other ring with the colorful stones. And of course, Dulong Fine Jewelry is also the creator of one of the golden bracelets. Her other bangle is from Rebekka Notkin.

She matched the outfit with nude pointed Prada pumps and her beloved Prada handbag. Mary changed her shoes during the reception to her beloved sling-back flats from Chanel (here).

Day 1. UN's 77th General Assembly

21st September 2022

Crown Prince Frederik had arrived in New York a day prier to his wife to attend the UN's Generel Assembly. Among others, he attended the opening debate along with the Danish Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen and spoke at the "Sustainable Food: How alternative food production and consumption can combat climate change".

Crown Princess Mary arrived on September 21st. First thing in the morning, she attended the WWF Would Wild Fund for Nature event "Global Plastics Treaty Business Coalition. The event had been organized in collaboration with the Ellen MacArthur Foundation.

She also participated a meeting on Danish development cooperation and negotiations with the UN environmental organization UNEP. Later, she met with the executive director of the United Nations Population Fund Dr. Natalia Kanem to discuss UNEPA's strategies for 2022-2015.

On her first day in New York, Mary showed up in a brand new orange printed dress from Jonathan Simkhai. Heaven was the lucky finder of Mary's new dress. The dress looked beautiful on her. Especially, the color was a lovely choice. I am a bit troubled about the black blazer. I do not really see the point of wearing a black blazer with this dress. What do you think? Go or no go? I am curious to hear your opinions.

She accessorized the new dress with golden diamond earrings from Sophie Bille Brahe and one of her most loved bracelets from Dulong Fine Jewelry. Mary added the bracelet to her jewellery collection a year ago. The other golden bangle is rather new. Not to be mistaken with her Cartier bangle. This is studded with different colored stones. It is still not identified. Rebekka Notkin is the talented creator of her third bracelet and ring. Her rather large diamond ring is from Dulong Fine Jewelry.

The beautiful leather handbag is a design by Prada. It has been part of her wardrobe for quite a few years now. She has worn the bag when, among others, she attended the CBS Responsibility Day 2021 (here) and when visiting Prada in 2017 (here).

Mary nailed it (without the blazer) by wearing black leather studded pumps from Valentino. Many women dream of wearing a pair of these iconic heels. Mary owns quite a few pairs in different colors - and styles.

After a long day, the Crown Princess had one last event to attend: a welcome reception hosted by President Joseph Biden. She was accompanied by the Danish Minister of Development Flemming Møller Mortensen at the reception.

It took place at The American Museum of National History in New York.

The reception gathered heads of state and government as part of the opening of UN's 77th General Assembly.

I wish we had more photos from the welcome reception to get a more "whole" view of her outfit. Somehow, I miss the rest to say for sure if I like this look or not. My impressions are not negative, but I would love to have seen more.

Heaven managed to identified both her outfit. They are from Rochas. I was sure, Mary was wearing a dress because the two pieces look so well-put-together. But in fact, it is a blouse and matching skirt. As earlier during the day, Mary embraced the look with Sophie Bille Brahe earrings and bracelets from Dulong Fine Jewelry and Rebekka Notkin.

We get a glimpse of a clutch as well. It is from Prada. An old one worn before at quite a few different occasions. Like, when she welcomed Japan's Crown Prince visited Denmark in 2017 (here). She also wore it in Australia in 2013 on an official visit (here).

Queen Margrethe's 50th anniversary: church service, lunch and gala dinner

11 September 2022

Many events have been cancelled and given a new date due to the worldwide pandemic. Some of these events were related to the celebration of Queen Margrethe's 50th anniversary as Queen. Finally, we are able to celebrate the Queen. Still, many events are still cancelled and delayed. But something are better than nothing.

On September 11, family and friends were gathered to celebrate the 50th anniversary. First with a special church service in Vor Frue Church in Copenhagen. The same church were the Crown Prince Couple got married back in 2004.

Later on, the family and special invited guest were having lunch at Dannebrog. The royal yacht. Also regal couple from other nordic countries attended the lunch. Both the Swedish King Carl Gustav and his wife Queen Silvia, and the Norwegian King Harald and Sonja attended the lunch on board Danneborg.

Mary truly looked stunning during the day celebrating her mother-in-law. She had chosen to wear a magnificent new Erdem skirt with her simple white Ralph Lauren jacket. I learned about the skirt from UFO No More. I am truly amazed by this purple embroidered skirt. Just look at that beautiful embroidery. The think light grey belt was a clever details.

To match the rest of her outfit (and youngest daughter, Princess Josephine), Mary was wearing her beloved Aquamarine brooch. A gift given to her by Queen Margrethe, when Prince Christian was born. Mary has worn this brooch on many different occasion. Maybe a small gesture on this very special day? The shiny diamond earrings are a purchased from a Bruun Rasmussen auction a few years back. 

Mary's wonderful headpiece is a creation by milliner Susanne Juul. Sadly, she is no longer making hats. The grey suede pumps troubles me. They look very similar to other of her shoes, but something is still not quite the same. They stay unidentify for a while. At least I am not convinced yet about the designer.

For sure you noticed Mary's brand new Christin Dior handbag, right? Not sure, I would ever had my eyes on it, but she wears is with such grace.

What a magnificent way to end a wonderful day. People fro near and far, were invited to attend a prestiges gala dinner at Christiansborg Castle in Copenhagen - with Queen Margrethe as hostess.

Queen Margrethe, the Crown Prince Couple, Prince Joachim and Princess Marie welcomed all the guest with a handshake and lots of smiles, when they arrived. And it was truly an amazing evening for all the guests. Outstanding dinner, speeches in honor of the Queen, beautiful decorations and entertainment. Especially, Crown Prince Frederik's speech to his mother captured most of the world (here). His admiration for his mother was clear.

"... you can be sure that I, as your second-in-command, am right behind you. Loyal and full of respect for the journey you have taken and continue to take us all on." - Crown Prince Frederik

I think, I lost my breath. Simple as that. Mary looked absolutely breathtaking at the gala dinner at Christiansborg. Look at that evening gown. Jesper Høvring created this stunning dress. I love how the black lace cover a soft golden dress underneath. It looks almost delicate. So exquisite and elegant. This is by no doubt one of my favorite gowns of hers. It takes quite a lot to make my top three.

Somehow, the red ruby parure makes the most perfect match to her outfit. The black lace and the rubies are a match made in heaven. She is wearing it after Queen Ingrid - Queen Margrethe's mother. Crown Prince Frederik inherited it after his grandmother and now Mary is wearing it. The ruby ring was added later. It was crafted by goldsmiths from Dulong Fine Jewelry.

I was surprised to see that she wore her hair down for an event like this. It has only happened a few times. But I love it!

We also get a glimpse of black lace pumps from Gianvito Rossi. For once, I think the shoes looks good with the rest of the outfit. I have never been a true fan of these pumps, but now I am. Sergio Rossi is the designer of Mary's black glitter box clutch.

Queen Margrethe's 50th anniversary: gala performance

10 September 2022

On Januar 14th 2022, Queen Margrethe could celebrate her 50 years as Queen of Denmark. It has been celebrated already with a number of events, but due to the pandemic, many of the following events were either cancelled or given a new date. This is why several events are happening over the next few days.

Saturday evening, friends and family were gathered at the Royal Theatre to attend a gala performance on occasion of the Queen's 50th anniversary.

She was accompanied by her sisters, the Crown Prince Couple and their two oldest children, Prince Joachim and Princess Marie with Prince Nikolai and Prince Felix and guest from both the Swedish and Norwegian royal family.

At first, I have to say that Queen Anne-Marie truly won the fashion competition in my eyes. That burgundy evening gown pairs with those stunning jewellery. I am all over the top about her outfit. She looks so beautiful.

Of course, it does not mean that I dislike Mary's look at the gala performance. Because I don't. Mary also looked fantastic in her bespoke Lasse Spangenberg Copenhagen. She first wore the magnificent gown, when celebrating Crown Prince Frederik's 50th birthday a few years back (here).

Mary embraced the magnificent gala outfit with a tiara - that also works as a necklace. It was purchased on a Bruun Rasmussen auction. The earrings could be added to her jewellery box the same way. From an auction. All her others jewellery, I have not been able to identify.

I learned about her new shiny clutch from UFO No More. Apparently, it is from Serpui. A rather new designer in her wardrobe. Mary's powder pink satin pumps are also new. I am sure they are from Gianvito Rossi.

The official opening of UC SYD Campus Kolding

06 September 2022

Most of Crown Princess Mary's duties are in Copenhagen, but now and then, she also goes to Jutland to attended and participate events. Lately, she has both been visiting Herning and Sønderborg (here). On 

Tuesday, the Crown Princess went to Kolding to attend the official opening of UC SYD Campus Kolding. The new campus is education both pedagogues, graphic communicators, sound designers, etc. UC SYD Campus is now South Jutland's largest institution of education.

Crown Princess Mary was the one to official inaugurate the new campus. Later on, she was given a tour around the facilities, among others, a soundstudio. She also met with some of the students taking their education at UC Syd Campus Kolding.

Mary embraced a super chic (summery?) style at the grand opening in Kolding. She had chosen to rewear her light blue Victoria Beckham blouse and an old creamy white DAY Birger et Mikkelsen midi-skirt. She has worn this combo before. Among others, at an annual meeting with the Mary Foundation's Presidum in 2018 (here) and for some official photos by photographer Franne Voigt (here).

She styled the outfit with a raffia belt from Prada. I haven't really decided if I like it or not. It goes well with the outfit, but maybe not my personal taste. What are your thoughts?

As jewellery, Mary chose her beloved white South Sea pearl earrings created by Dulong Fine Jewelry. Both diamond ring and one of the golden bracelets are also by the hand of talented goldsmiths at Dulong Fine Jewelry. Rebekka Notkin mastered her other golden bracelet and ring.

No clutch or bag for this event, but her shoes are from Gianvito Rossi. Imagine wearing white suede pumps several times and they are still as good as new. Impressive. Mary wore the same shoes, when attending Copenhagen Business School's Responsibility Day 2021 (here). I am a fan.

Flag Day 2022

05 September 2022

Since the Flag Day first took place in 2009, the Crown Prince Couple have attended the ceremony for many years. It is a day of honoring everyone who is or has been sent on mission for the Armed Forces, the Police, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Health Service and the Rescue Service.

Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary arrived at Kastellet in Copenhagen early in the morning to attend a ceremony for those lost in battle. The couple placed a wreath at the Monument for Denmark's International Efforts after 1948.

After the ceremony at Kastellet, the Crown Prince Couple attended a church service in Holmens Church for Denmark's fallen soldiers. Let's have one minute of silence to honor those, who fight for a better world. For those who fight to keep us safe.

Mary is truly a master of picking the perfekt outfit for any given occasion she is attending. Just look at, when the couple attended the Flag Day 2022. She looked splendid in her reused dark green Beulah London dress. Isn't that color really lovely on her? I adore it next to her brown hair. Mary first wore this dress at the inauguration of Campus Horsens in September 2021 (here).

She embraced the style by wearing a stunning bespoke Susanne Juul hat. It has been part of her wardrobe for quite a few years. Over the years, she has worn it with several different decorations - flowers and so. The Gianvito Rossi pointed pumps are a perfect match to the color of her hat and unidentified clutch. I believe the green gloves are new.

The little peacock brooch is a reuse as well. Actually, it goes back to 2006 (here), but we have not seen it since 2009 (here). I have never been able to identify it. The delicate black pearl earrings, matching bracelet and ring are all created by talented Dulong Fine Jewelry.

The People's Movement against Loneliness' conference and Opening of "2030 NOW"

01 September 2022

Crown Princess Mary was about to attended two very important events. One in Herning and another one in Sønderborg.

First, the Crown Princess traveled to Herning to attended the People's Movement against Loneliness' conference. She participated the conference along with the Mary Foundation. The foundation has been part of the People's Movement against Loneliness' leading group the last seven years.

At the conference, representatives from the more than 80 companies, schools, organisations etc., who are part of the movement, gathered to open up the discussion about loneliness.

Crown Princess Mary gave the opening speech with focus on how important it is for all of us to speak about loneliness. This is the first step to create awareness of the issue.

Later in the afternoon, the Crown Princess ended up in Sønderborg to attend the official opening of "2030 NOW". An exhibition focusing on the UN's 17 World Goals and what the achievement of these goals will bring. This was exhibited in photos and art.

By attending the opening, Crown Princess Mary supported the significance of the world goals and how to act to fulfill them. The event takes place in both Sønderborg, Aalborg, Copenhagen and Aarhus.

Mary looked so beautiful in that colorful skirt and simple white button-down. More than once, she has worn such a midi skirt with a plain blouse. I really like this combination because it works a stunning balance. Actually, Mary was wearing a similar outfit, when visiting Burkina Faso in October 2021 (here). Unfortunately, the wonderful skirt has never been identified. Do you know anything about it? - other than it is incredibly beautiful.

Taking the stand and given her opening speech, Mary added a pair of Tom Ford glasses to the look. The golden Rebekka Notkin bangle and diamond ring were a great choice. So was the Ole Lynggaard Copenhagen ring. Like it, when she wears multiple rings at the same time.

I learned about her brand new Malone Souliers from Kate. They are the same design as those new ones she wore at the presentation of this years Carlsberg Foundation's Research Award 2022 (here). Not quite sure if I am a big fan of them, but Mary wear them with such elegance. Later, when attending the opening of "2030 NOW", she changed shoes to Tod's wedges.

At the conference in Herning, Mary also showed us her chic Ralph Lauren tote bag. The one in beige.

Mary looked absolutely splendid in her Collette Dinnigan dress. Isn't she gorgeous? She first wore this incredible dress at the wedding of Princess Madeleine and Chris O'Neil in 2013 (here). Since then, we haven't seen it - until now. Mary had the dress altered from a floor-length gown to a midi-dress. Do you like the alteration as much as I do?

She had me with the dress, but those pieces of accessories chosen for the event were outstanding and they truly caught my attention. Look at those Malone Souliers heels. Apparently, they come in various designs. In my opinion, Mary chose the good-looking design. The were identified by UFO No More, who also managed to find her new handbag at Decadent Copenhagen. She carried the bag with her in the car. We got at glimpse of it, when she arrived to Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek.

Her stunning diamond-studded earrings are masterpieces by Dulong Fine Jewelry, who also crafted one of her diamond rings - and one of the golden bangles of her right wrist. Mary was also wearing some other bracelets. They are from Rebekka Notkin and Ole Lynggaard Copenhagen. Rebekka Notkin is also the creator of her stunning golden ring.

The beautiful snakeskin clutch is from Judith Leiber.

This orange Scanlan Theodore suit is indeed quite unusual for her wardrobe, but wauw. Mary looks like a dreamy sunset. That color is incredible on her next to her fair skin and brown hair. She has worn it before. Last time, was at a business promotion visit in the Netherlands on June 20th 2022 (here). This time, she matched the suit with a simple white Scanlan Theodore blouse. From the same designer is the brown leather belt.

Mary embraced the style by wearing amazing golden jewellery - and a few silver pieces. That combo of Dulong Fine Jewelry necklaces seems to have become one of her favorites at the moment. I like the thought that the "M" necklaces could be a birthday present. She wore a rather large diamond ring from Dulong Fine Jewelry as well.

The clutch is a reused one. I have never been able to identify it, but maybe one day. Mary first wore it in Rio de Janeiro in 2016 at the Olympic Games (here). Those Gianvito Rossi python pumps looks splendid with the rest of her outfit!
