No, not as far as I can remember. Quit the contrary. She was praised for her tasteful stile.

By the way - I don't understand all the fuss about her hairdo at this event. IMO the negative posters are shooting sparrow with cannonballs. Furthermore I actually liked that hairdo. It was fresh, experimental and artistic. Exactly the kind of hairdo fitting for a fashionevent like that.

Alexandra's hairdo is not any messier than Mary's. Both of them look very casual and hastily put-together.

I also consider her outfit ok. Maybe not perfect, but okay. Her hairdo was not that bad, especially if she had to take care of her hair on her own.
Denmark is as far as I know quite a liberal and open country, I guess Danes wouldn´t mind her wearing a low-cut top in an unofficial fashion show. How can we be sure that black thing is her bra? Maybe it is, maybe it is another smaller top, who knows?

Thanks for the link QUEENCE29, but isn't the news a bit belated; she's had that website for ages now, the only thing that has changed as far as I can see was a couple of months ago when her engagement diary was replaced with a list of patronages.

By the way, is that a recent image of her - I've never seen it before?

The article is from the 20th of febuary 2009 but it is very very old news indeed. I guess there isn't much happening in Sweden these days since Svensk Damtidning are writing about things having happend in Denmark years ago .

I've just found a video of her opening the new set at the Children's Culture House:

Yes, she looked very nice and was dressed very properly, as she always does for her patronage events!

I'm sorry, but I have to disagree. "Fresh, experimental and artistic" are OK for a 20-year old, but Alexandra needs to reserve that idea for the week-ends.
Princess Victoria gets criticized for wearing a banana clip in messy hair on her arrival in Sicily and Alexandra wears one to a fashion show and everyone thinks that she looks great? And you know that Mary will be there and all the press?
So, you can't make it to the salon - hot rollers, elastic bands, head bands - today there are numerous quick fixes to help a busy person with their hair.

Countess Alexandra will be back in Odense this Tuesday to light lights for the 600 infants who die each year in Denmark as Patron of the Danish Infant Death Association, along with Mayor Jan Boye. Afterwards, she will attend an award ceremony, also held in Odense to distribute prizes to particularly deserving people.

Does Countess Alexandra have anything to do with deciding the prize-recipients? I have always admired the work that Alexandra continues to do with her patronages.

I don't know if she actually helps to decide - maybe Viv, living in Odense, has heard something more about this (I think she/he lives in Odense anyway)

The Countess, along with her husband, Prince Nikolai and Prince Joachim, attended a carnival party with Prince Felix:

Crown Princess Victoria will be the future Queen of Sweden.
She represents her country.

Countess Alexandra is no more a member of Danish Royal Family.
She is a normal tax payer and represents nobody but herself.
Her noble title cannot even be passed to her children.

Why do you suppose that Alexandra knew in advance that Mary will be there?

It is quite possible that the countess spent houres at the hair salon trying to achieve this look. Has anyone have in an image in their minds of those models walking on the catwalk? Some look like they have been through a couple of rounds with a prize fighter before they modeled the latest creations.

She may pay taxes, but she also receives taxes as part of her "salary" as the ex-wife of Joachim. She has patronages just like any other royal person and should look the part.
I would say, in a way, that Alexandra represents some aspect which involves the royal family and the government.
She is still listed under the Royal House of Denmark official links with her coronet and monogram.
I have always thought that Alexandra looks immpecable. Her appearance at this event was so out of character for her.
She may have known that Mary would be there or not - but in any case, she should have known that the Press would be there.

Countess Alexandra is on the cover of the 5th March Costume Magazine (the second time she's given them an interview). The interview seems to be basically the same as others she's given in the past; the most important things in her life are friends, love, children, charity, honesty and laughter.

You can see the info and cover (with what I think is a horrible photo of her) here:
Nyt nummer af Costume « Costume.dk

If you're interested, the first interview Costume did with her, back when she was a Princess, is here:

I completely agree with you, Alex001. It is not the most flattering photo of Alexandra. I do think that it is very nice that she is featured on the cover, though. The photos from the first cover are much nicer. Does she go into depth about any of her patronages?
