Four weeks for Christmas!

Now we hit the day where there is only four weeks for Christmas eve! I can not believe how fast time has gone by the last months. Since I started studying again, I feel time has run by my with a million km. per hour. I have had fun, made new friends and learned so much. My time has not been wasted. Suddenly yesterday it struck me; OMG tomorrow is the first advent. Something I have been looking really much forward to, which give me the chance to share a weekly post with you. That is never a bad thing. I am sure all of you have many plans for December -friends to meet, places to go so I have decided to share four of Mary's outfits from 2016 that I think would do for any occasion. The outfits I have chosen are some I really like myself and some that have caught more attention than usual. So I hope you will be inspired to try something new, find a couple of things you can not live without or just enjoy watching a few outfits -that I am sure will make you excited. Make it a wonderful sunday!



✤ The first look I want to give you the opportunity to recreate is this sophisticated and classy outfit from Frederik and Mary's visit to Washington in September. I have been in love with everything about this look since the second I saw it the first photo. I think the bright blue colour would do perfectly for any Christmas event you are going to in December. The way Mary matched her blue jumpsuit with beige accessories and golden jewellery just makes each colour look even more magnificent. I am convinced that this will work splendid with any from dramatic to natural makeup, any colour nail polish and hairstyle you would like. Personally I would go for blueish eyemakeup, natural lips, softs curls and a bright red coloured nail polish. Think pink would do great as well. So let your imagination give this outfit the last touch!

Day 3: Visiting Moldova

Friday, November 25th


Crown Princess Mary visits Moldova as patron for World Health Organization Regional for Europe from November 23-25th. The Crown Princess is accompanied by WHO Regional Director for Europe Dr Zsuzsanna Jakab during the visit.

Program:
  • 9:30 am. Crown Princess Mary visited a health care center offering vaccination of children.

It has been three great days for Mary. She has met lots of people trying to improve the health care solutions and well-being for mothers and children in Moldova. Several times the Danish Crown Princess showed and told about her experiences during her days. I can not help saying that I think she was impressed by the countries initiatives and their eagerness to makes a difference improving the life of women and their children. She only had one more visit left before leaving Chisinau going back to Copenhagen, Denmark. That visit was at a health care center in Chisinau offering vaccination of children. Here the Crown Princess was given a guided tour around the facility. She also met some mothers with their children who had come to the center to get their children vaccinated.

When writing this post I only found one image of Mary's last day in Moldova visiting a health care center. I wondered why. Now about a week later or so, I finally managed to find some more from her visit. So now we know what she was wearing: we alredy knew about the dusty pink pleated blouse and a black blazer. Whether or not this blouse features sleeves I can't tell, but I think it is a piece we will see again one day. I guessed she wore black trousers as well... and she did! A black suit paired with something a bit girly, well it just looks magnificent! Mary embraced the style by wearing a reused Georg Jensen brooch featuring rose quartz (see, we have the brooch again), a pair of Hartmanns earrings and her golden Cartier bracelet. Gianvito Rossi probably is the designer of her pointed black pumps.  
   I think it has been a pleasure following her trip though I am some days behind. I hope you enjoyed reading about her visit on the blog as much as I did writing about it.

Crown Princess Mary during her second day in Moldova

After a fantastic first day in Moldova, Mary was ready for yet another day which started with a visit at the Public Health Institute. Here the Crown Princess was introduced to the Vaccine Cold Chamber.  The visit to the vaccine chamber seemed to have impressed Mary who, afterwards talked to the local and international press. It was with great exciment she told about what she had seen so far. Around noon she attended a lunch along with other United Nations (UN) representatives in Moldova. The lunch was follwed by a very touching visit at The Mother and Child Institute aiming to improve mother and childrens health and well-being. Like everybody else, Mary could not resist the babies. Emotional to all of them I believe. Wonderful pictures from the visit.
  Later the Crown Princess payed a visit to the State University of Medicine and Pharmacy where she also held a speech. What makes this a bit more special, especially for Mary and her traveling partner Dr Zsuzsanna Jakab, is that the two of them were announched honorary Doctorate. Dressed in each their special cape and hat, the two women recieved their new title. Congratulations!! In the evening she attended a dinner with representatives from the WHO. Unfortulately I have not been able to find any pictures from that dinner.  

As impressed as I was of her during the day, as impressed am I of what she was wearing. My heart stopped for a second when I saw the grey JOSEPH coat and that printed white Stine Goya blouse. Really magnificent design. And then with the golden leaf brooch, which I still have not figured out yet where is from, it looks simply dazzling. Very clever way to 'spice up' you old winter coat. I am so sure it will cause a stir if you tried it. She matched the blouse with black trousers and a pair of still unidentified pointed pumps. I am a little surprised she was not carring any clutch or handbag, think it would have been appropriate. But really, don't we all know that time when we do not need our bag and do not know where to keep it while we are out? I do. What I recognized right away is the earrings. Goodies from Figaros Bryllup. We have not seen them for quite a long time and they look amazing to the rest of her outfit, especially in the combination with the printed Stine Goya blouse. Great to see something we have not seen in a long time. And as always, she completely nailed it! Last, but not least, Mary wore a thing diamond bracelet from Ole Lynggaard Copenhagen. I love how she mixed and matched rather light colours during late fall. So, what do you say? -Is you as impressed as I am?

Blouse: Stine Goya Lea Aviary Silk Blouse

Day 1: Visiting Moldova

Wednesday, November 23rd

Crown Princess Mary visits Moldova from November 23-25th as patron the World Health Organization (WHO) European Region. The Crown Princess is traveling accompanied by WHO Regional Director for Europe Dr Zsuzsanna Jakab.

Program:
  • 5:00 pm. Crown Princess Mary attended a meeting with the Moldovan Health Minister in the Ministry of Health.
  • 8:00 pm. Crown Princess Mary was present at the Minister of Health dinner at Castel Mimi.

Crown Princess Mary arriving to Moldova

We are now of to Moldova. I think the Crown Princess arrived by plain around noon, but I haven't been able to figure out what time exactly. She was warmly welcomed with flowers and big smiles. I am sure she had been looking very much forward to visiting Moldova which happened as patron of the WHO European Region. The visit lasts form November 23-25th, so only for three days. It is with WHO Regional Director for Europe Dr Zsuzsanna Jakab she is visiting the country to focus on regional challenges in relation to vaccinations, maternal and child health. Something both women have been working to improve the past years. Now they have the chance once again. 

What is must interesting about the arrival is what Mary was wearing, because as I already told you, I do not have that many pictures nor informations from the arrival. Traveling style is a difficult thing, because you never know what to wear. It need to be something you feel comfortable wearing and at the same time you want to look suitable. Not too much, not too little. I am sure you know the feeling. What makes Mary so... unique is (also) her traveling style. No matter what, Mary looks incredibly stylish. This time she was dressed in what I believe is a reused pink lace blouse, here, matched with some kind of grey blouse, black trousers and her amazing grey cashmere coat from JOSEPH. Embracing the style she accessorized her outfit with new burgundy gloves, a matching Hugo Boss handbag, a golden leaf brooch and I tend to say of course, red nail polish! See that is one good-looking traveling outfit. 

Bag: Hugo Boss Mila-F Leahter Handbag


Crown Princess Mary meeting with the Moldovan Health Minister

At 5:00 o'clock, local time, the Danish Crown Princess was ready for her first official meeting during her three days in Moldova. She meet with the Moldovan Health Minister in the Ministry of Health taking place in the capital of Moldova, Chisinau. Here she got her own seat right next to Dr Zsuzsanna Jakab and WHO representative in Moldova Dr Haris Hajrulahovic. The pictures shows a very observant Crown Princess who carefully listened to the conversation. Now and then she participated and shared what she had on mind. Later she met the international press who showed great interest in the Danish Crown Princess. 



I was differently not disapointed of what I saw when Mary later showed up at the Ministry of Health in Chisinau. She had changed her black trousers to a brand new burgundy A-line skirt and the grey blouse to another new lovely purple blouse featuring long sleeves and beautiful details at front. I was thinking Hugo Boss for both new items, but I still have not been able to find out where it come from. What designers comes to your mind? Like at the arrival she looked stunning wearing her grey cashmere coat from JOSEPH decorated with a golden leaf brooch. And if you like following new trends, then here you have one -brooches. All kinds of them. They are often hated by most people but I could not be more happy to see Mary wear one and know that they are one of the most trendy accessories right now. I have always loved brooches and love to wear them on dresses, blouses and like Mary on coats and blazers. Can not get enough of them. This one is absolutely stunning! As other jewellery she wore Dulong Fine Jewelry earrings and two diamond rings from Ole Lynggaard Copenhagen. Of course then we also have her bracelet, unfortunately I do not know anything about it except from it is a reuse like the burgundy Hugo Boss handbag. I have also found out that she was wearing a pair of bicolor Prada pumps. Nothing else to say than dazzling outfit Mary showed us in Moldova.

Crown Princess Mary at Castel Mimi

Before the dinner took place, the Crown Princess and Dr Zsuzsanna Jakab waere given a guided tour around the wine cellar placed under the castel, which seemed to impressed both of them quick a lot. You should think one like Mary was use to rooms like these, but I never really think you get use to it. It will always, somehow, impres you. At first I was sure she visited the wine cellar right before the dinner at Castel Mimi, but it looks like I am completely wrong. A reader made me aware that the Crown Princess wore something very different than at the dinner, which of course means that it was taking place more than just half an hour before. Why she chose to change clothes I do not know, because I think both outfits would do great! She had paired a brand new Prada dress in three different colours -black, grey and blue. It is with help from Kate I learned who designed her new dress. Matched with a black Prada coat, earrings I can't identify, her black Carlend Copenhagen clutch and of course red nails;  Mary's look was spot on! NB. you find pictures of her in the wine cellar at Newscom.

Crown Princess Mary attending dinner at Castel Mimi

After a long first day in Moldova it was time for some dinner which took place at Castel Mimi. It was the Health Minister Ruxanda Glavan, whom she met with earlier, who welcomed the guest of honor at the arrival. The room where the dinner was about to take place was beautifully decorated and good music was playing, everything was set for a great evening. Also her traveling partner, Dr Zsuzsanna Jakab, was invited to the fine dinner at Castel Mimi. A perfect way to end a successful day.

Till now we have seen many new pieces and a couple of old. During the dinner at Castel Mimi it was visa versa; only a few new and lots of old goodies. One of them is her black and white Prada dress which she shares with Queen Máxima of the Netherlands. A very simple, but good-looking, dress I think almost everyone would look great wearing. I believe it is a couple of years since we have seen it. Also from Prada we have the black coat. In black she was also wearing a Carlend Copenhagen clutch, SAND Copenhagen pointed pumps and sheer tights. Elegant is the first word that comes to my mind when looking at her outfit from the dinner. Especially because of the red nail polish and white pearl jewellery. I strongly believe both earrings and bracelet are from Dulong Fine Jewelry. To make her outfit even more classy she wore her Carlend Copenhagen clutch. What a day!

Hunting season at Fredensborg Castle

Tuesday, November 22nd

Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary visited Fredensborg castle along with Prince Vincent and Princess Josephine on occasion of the conducted hunt in Gribskov.

Time is running so fast and much has happened for both me and Mary the last week. Now I will try to catch up with everything next couple of days. First we have an unofficial visit to catch up with because on November 22nd the Crown Prince couple enjoyed a day at Fredensborg Castle accompanied by the Queen. With them they had Prince Vincent and his sister Princess Josephine. Think probably the reason why their two older siblings weren't there, is because of school the following day. I am in no doubt they all enjoy the evening together despite the cold. Especially Queen Margrethe seemed to have a wonderful time along with her oldest son and, part of, his family. Think we can call it a tradition for them to gather once a year. It is something they have been doing for many year now and I think Frederik and Mary have attended almost every year.

To keep warm on a cold November evening in Denmark the whole royal family and participants were all dressed in cosy jackets and wearing hats. The Crown Princess was no exception. Do not know if you remember having seen this specific outfit before, but actually we have seen it at a previous occasion in 2014. At that time it was December 26th and the family were invited to Tivoli in Copenhagen by Queen Margrethe to see the Christmas ballet The Nutcracker which the Queen had designed costumes for, here. I have been crazy in love with this look since the first time and I do not love it less now. The whole combination of colours and materials are incredibly fashionable! What she did was quite simple; matched a Alice by Temperley turtleneck sweater with a Zara poncho, tight black leather trousers (yes, what you just read is absolutely correct -leather trousers) and a pair of suede brown heeled boots. Unfortunately, I still do not know where the boots are from. Maybe you got a clue? If so, I would love to hear from you. With a beanie and beige leather gloves featuring fur, I have to call this the ultimate fall outfit!

The Mothers Help's house

Friday, November 18th

Crown Princess Mary attended as patron the official opening of the Mothers Help's house in Copenhagen. 


It was a very special day for the Mothers Help when their patron, Crown Princess Mary, was invited to the official opening of the new Mothers Help's house at Vesterbro in Copenhagen. At the arrival she was in a great mood. I think it's a day Mary had been looking forward to with great excitement because the Mothers Help work with an area as she struggles greatly to improve; women, children and girls. The Mothers Help is an social humanitarian organization that work to support and advise both families, pregnant women and single mothers. Mary has been patron for the organization since 2007 and still is. Mary gave a rather short speech right before she cut the red ribbon with a traditional golden scissor and the new house was officially opened. The opening ceremony was followed by a guided tour where she also met some of the professionals working at the place. A huge and loud congratulations from me to the Mothers Help on behalf of their new facility. 

You can tell that Mary was doing everything to keep warm and stay good-looking when she, as guest of honor, attended the opening of the new Mothers Help's house in Vesterbro, Copenhagen. What she did was match a turtleneck (which I strongly believe is from Heartmade), trousers and a reused Heartmade cape featuring silver embellishment at front; all in black. Heartmade is also the designer of her new ankle boots she was wearing to make her outfit a bit more edgy. I have seen others bloggers mentioning several other models, but I am pretty sure these are new. Take a look here and make up your mind, maybe I'm able to convince you. Especially notice the decorated low heel. What I know of this is her third pair of black boots decorated with studs and I quite like the style of each and every one of them, though I don't think Mary really manage to wear them... properly. I would love to see them and not hidden underneath trouser legs. What do you think? Am I completely wrong.
  So lovely that she was wearing both red nail polish and berry red lipgloss! Makes everything look even more dazzling. Shining as her eyes was the new diamond earrings which I believe could be from Hartmann's without knowing it for sure. The style reminds me a lot of another pair of her Hartmann's earrings. I also noticed a diamond ring in the center of two other rings from Ole Lynggaard Copenhagen. A combination we have seen a million times before that never become outdated. Makeup, hair and accessories are what makes me adore this look.

When one picture says it all...

The Wedding Anniversary Celebration!


One of these big days is necessary to celebrate, so of course we do. Isn't it unbelievable that 12,5 year has already gone from the day Crown Prince Frederik, future King of Denmark, married the 32 year old Mary Elizabeth Donaldson from Australia? No need to elaborate the story all over again; first you all know it and have heard it a million time and secondly I am pretty sure royalists as you will get to hear the story once again somewhere else because this is really a day so many people have been looking forward to celebrate. Newspapers and magazines have already talked about their wedding anniversary the last month or so here in Denmark. Yesterday one show after another were broadcasted on Danish television such as today on DR1 with The Crown Prince wedding - 24 hours we never forget. No doubt that the Danes have been looking forward to this day with great excitement (so have I!). The royal family also shared a gallery on this very special day, here, including two new photos.

  Unfortunately I do not remember the day they got married in Vor Frue church back in 2004. It was around a year and a half after I for real became interested in the royal family and especially the new Crown Princess coming all the way from the other side of the globe. I'm still now quite sure why Mary won my heart, but she did just like everybody else. Since then I have been truly fascinated by her; such as her commitment, honestly and of course (not to forget) her incredible sense of style. And my admiration hasn't faded, not even a bit since then. A couple of weeks or so, I asked you to share your brilliant ideas with me on how to celebrate the royal couple. Not that many ideas were given -which is absolutely fin, and then I came of with something I thought would be a little fun for you. For this, very special, occasion I have created a little wordsearch puzzle with sixteen words that more or less covers their years together as a couple. So, how many of them are you actually able find? I know this is a very modest way to celebrate them on their anniversary, but I hope you find it amusing anyway. Once and for all -Happy wedding anniversary to Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary!


"Kærlig Talt" Conference

Tuesday, November 8th

Crown Princess Mary attended the "Kærlig Talt" conference organized by the Mary Foundation taking place at GAME Copenhagen, Copenhagen.


It was in a splendid mood the Crown Princess arrived to GAME Copenhagen to attend the Kærlig Talt conference trying to strengthen healthy relationships and respectful communications among the older pupils The conference is on the initiative of the Mary Foundation as part of their projects to prevent dating violence which Kærlig Talt is all about. As a perfect start Mary gave a speech, here, specially on emotions and how we sometimes need to keep them under control. Very impressive speech I strongly recommend you to read. It was a day filled with reflection, dialogue and a day were both experiences and thoughts were shared. Exercises, dialogue, bodily expression and musical indulgence was the message passed on about how important communication is.



As the participants of the conference were indulged with music features and much more, we were totally spoiled when it comes to her outfit! A new a fresh fall outfit. I'm totally in love with everything I see -the blouse, skirt, hair everything looks magnificent! It was a Royals & Fashion I learned about her new white lace blouse and burdungy suede skirt which are respectively from Aiayu and JOSEPH. What surprised me most is differently that new skirt, a bit unusual but soooo stylish. Very refreshing to see her wear something never really seen before. The blouse features the most beautiful buttoned back, long sleeves and turtle neck. It's made of 70 % wool which makes it more than perfect for the Danish weather. What first comes to my mind about this specific outfit, is that it looks so harmonious. I am more than impressed. Matching the tights and black SAND Copenhagen pumps Mary wore a Prada coat at the arrival. It was accessorized with amazing earrings from Ole Lynggaard Copenhagen and a stunning ring I still do not know where is from. Another thing I noticed was her makeup -fresh and good looking. Incredibly beautiful.

Conference: "Education and Vulnerability"

Monday, November 7th

Crown Princess Mary attended the opening of the SFI Conference in DGI-Byen, Copenhagen, entitled Education and Vulnerability along with the Mary Foundation. 


On Monday attended Mary the opening of the SFI Conference Education and Vulnerability which took place in DGI-byen, Copenhagen. She was invited because of her commitment to social work and as chairwoman of the Mary Foundation. The National Research Center (SFI) conference is for researchers and professionals in the field of education and social education for vulnerable young people. As noted in other articles the weather has changed radically in Denmark the last week or so, from a rainy autumn to a cold November with snow! This is the weather Mary brought with her when she arrived to DGI-Byen. Wonderful arrival. As guest of honor she entered the stage in front of couple of hundred people and gave the opening speech about, among others, social isolation. As always her words aroused great interest among the audience. She also talks with several years of experience. Still impressive to hear her speek.



No doubt that the cold "winter" weather is the reason why Mary had chosen dark colours and warm fabrics when she attended the confernence. I really like how she matched a blue trurtleneck blouse with her old embellished Prada jacket. Lovely to see her wear such pieces over and over again. Never get tired of reused outfit or single pieces. This is one of the best. Splendid way to wear something as elegant during the cold winter period. Blouse and jacket perfectly matched with the tight black trousers and patent Gianvito Rossi pumps -seen at quite many previous occasion. Unfortunately I do not have my own pair of Gianvito Rossi shoes, though it's a big wish, but I have heard they should be very comfortable to wear compared to for instance Christian Louboutin shoes. Yet another reason to love Rossi's shoes! At the arrival she was also wearing a cosy black scarf and her all time favourite Bottega Veneta bag. Not really an outfit that makes you stare for hours, but still it's classy and stylish. Well, one thing made me stare -her blue sheer stockings. A classic "Mary-trick" that always makes me fall in love with what I see. 

Did I Just Forget a Very Important Birthday?


Last night in my bed a thought suddenly struck me; haven't I completely forgotten to celebrate Style of Mary's sixth birthday? Yes I have! On September 27th the blog turned 6 years and I forgot all about it. What a mess. It's something I really look forward to each year and then I forget about it. Then I found out that my phone has, some how, deleted the event. Probably also because I just started my study and I had a million other things in mind. But it's so crazy and surreal that I have had this blog for six year now. Time is running so fast when you have lots of fun. Six years. When I think about all the thing I have experienced, learned, new friends I have made etc. in six years it feels like almost unmanageable long time. Oh it's just so wonderful! It has been a great pleasure to spend all these years in your company and I hope for many more in the future. Not even in my wildest imagination would I have predicted anything like this. I'm grateful and honored. Thanks to all of you who make my life as royal blogger so special!!

Nordic Council Award 2016

Monday, November 1st

Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary were present at the Nordic Council Award in DR Concert Hall on occasion of Nordic Council Session taking place in Copenhagen from November 1-3rd. 


It was as guests of honor the Crown Prince couple attended the Nordic Council Award which took place in DR Concert Hall. I was very surprised when I found out that the couple would attend the award because there is always a special atmosphere at such as awards, especially when Frederik and Mary are present too as they were on Monday. Everybodys eyes were on the royal coulpe when they arrived and entered the blue carpet (not red as usual). And really it is just wonderful to see them spend some time together at an event. Despite Frederik's little accident couple of weeks ago, he was one big smile and seemed to enjoy the evning along with his wife. Usually when they attend an award show like this they enter the stage at least once to present a prize, but with a little help from one of you I learned that the couple only attended as any other invited gues. I have also been made aware that they attended a following reception.

On occasion of a new book called Kongeskibet Dannebrog a few new pictures appeared on the royal family's Facebook page, here.


One thing you learn when you a bit behind writing posts, is what other bloggers and royalists have on mind about Mary's outfits. And this one really created a debate. Some simply can't get enought of her look and others dislike everything about it. What I found out is that many of you do not like her trousers in a combination with that new black lace blouse. Am I right? Not sure I would have paired the two of them together, but actually I fancy the two very different fabrics next to each other. I still have no idea where nor blouse or trousers are from. Mary styled the black evening outfit with Gianvito Rossi pumps, a black box clutch and a pair of Dulong Fine Jewelry earrings featuring a coral drop pendant -which by the way is removable. The same pair of earrings we saw just a couple of days ago, here, featuring a diamond drop pendant. One set of earrings, so many options. Beautifully the eye makeup gives all attention to her eyes. And of course notice her hairstyle. Think we have seen so many splendid hairstyles lately. Can't get enough of them. Some kind of updo always makes an outfit look complete. Funy thing I noticed was that Frederik actually look kinda casual next to Mary at the award show. But as usual they make a great couple!

Earrings: Dulong Fine Jewelry Lotus

Christmas Seal 2016

Monday, October 31st

Crown Princess Mary attended as patron the presentation of this years Christmas seal at Copenhagen City Hall. 


Every year since 1904 a new Christmas Seal has been presented where money goes to four Christmas Seal Homes for children in Denmark. For several years Mary has attended the presentation of the annual Christmas seal, so did she this year. It all took place in Copenhagen City Hall's banquet hall. It was as patron for the Christmas Seal Foundation the Crown Princess arrived to the presentation in a great mood. This year the stamp is drawn by Per O. Jørgensen who really did a great job. I think the motives are just wonderful, so did Mary. Right at the arrival Mary caught everybodys attention and all wanted a glimpse of the Crown Princess who took plenty of time to shake hands and greet. Finally the time was up and she revealed this years stamps, here. Think it was a pleasure for her to attend.

A few days ago a new interview with Mary was posted on the royal families facebook page, here. Itn a personal post the Crown Princess tells about her experiences as patron of Danish Refugee Aid on occasion of their 60th anniversary. 



Don't know if she knew what colour artist Per O. Jørgensen had used in the stamps, but she perfectly matched by wearing that lovely blue dress! To me it's new, do you recall having seen it before? I don't. But it is really beautiful and very flattering. I would relly love to see the dress without the blazer because I think it is a gorgeous dress. Wonder if it features long sleeves or maybe cap sleeves? And what about the neckline? Oh... I have so many questions about this dress. The black blazer and skyhigh pointed pumps, which I believe are from Gianvito Rossi, make her look business chic. Imagine this for a day a work, well of course it depends on whay you do for a living. Though I think it would do good for many of you. One of my readers mentioned that a splash of red would do great, I totally agree which is why I adore her berry red lips. Nor the belted (Célineblazer or dress have I found yet. But if you have a qualified guess I'd love to hear about it. In blue she wore both earrings and a ring from Pomellato such as a Quidam clutch. Think you should take a look at her hairstyle, if you are about to find a clear picture. But it's worth noticing! Incredibly beautiful. Makes her look very sophisticated, elegant and feminine -of course.

The Hans Christian Andersen Literature Award 2016

Sunday, October 30th

Crown Princes Mary attended the presentation of The Hans Christian Andersen Literature Award 2016 which took place at Odense city hall. 


The Hans Christian Andersen Literature Award was presented for the first time in 2007 and at this years award show attended Crown Princess Mary to hand over the prestigious international literature prize. It is given to authors whose authorship can be attached to the work of H.C. Andersen. He was a famous Danish author known for his beautiful fairytales. Mary arrived to Odense city hall in a splendid mood! With a huge smile on her face. Along with a check on DKK 500,000, a bronzesculpture and the Beauty of the Swan diploma was the Japanese author Haruki Murakami presented as this years winner. To me he looks like the happies man on earth -so would I. Mayor Anker Boye and chairman of the award committee consul Jens Olesen accompanied Mary on stage at the presentation. I congratuelate Murakami with this very fine award. Unfortunately, I don't recall any of his books though he is a famous and very popular author with books translated in more than 50 different languages.  



I simply can't get enough of Mary's outfit from the award show in Odense! Black and white is always a winner, but this looks both stylish and super classy without getting bored for the lack of colour. I am blown away by the combination of that new black long sleeved blouse and white a-line skirt. Don't you just love it! Well of course I have no idea if you like it or not, but I can't hide my excitement. I don't even try to. Trying to ID these two new pieces designer like JOSEPH and Hugo Boss crossed my mind, although I haven not been able to find any of them. What's on your mind? Any designers that makes you think it could be the one I'm looking for. She embraces the minimalistic style with white pearl earrings and a ring from Dulong Fine Jewelry such a her fabulous Carlend Copenhagen clutch. What makes Mary's outfit even more wonderful is the cap toe pumps she was wearing. Instantly I tried to figure out where they are from, but what I found a Saint Laurent was all wrong. Here, I learned that they are in fact from Gianvito Rossi; not really a surprise. I can not wait to hear what you have to say about this outfit!
