I think mary is very interested in hats.Not all of the hats she has worn are beautiful,but she has chosen to wear some nice hats since she got married Fred,she has worn a lot of hats than other Princess.But they are nice.And Mary is a stylish Princess.

I thought Mary looked really beautiful in this particular outfit, she looked perfect in this colour and though some people thought the coat was too busy, I thought it made her stand out of the crowd The fact that the coat was bright and again busy, it made the whole outfit look quite "youthful" (I don't know if that's the exact word to describe it..but younger) with a touch of elegance. Plus, I think Mary made a great comeback since that parliament outfit *shudder*...

Some people didn't like the fact that the hem was longer than the coat and I do respect your opinions..really I do but I thought I'd just defend Mary on this one. It is a style that young people could potentially wear because I was looking through a magazine called 'shop till you drop' (a really good mag for shopaholics), and they had this photoshoot on suits and on trenchcoats, and I found these two pictures where the hemline was like Mary's, just a little below the coat and the two models looked very elegant and definately not old.

The grey colour actually matched the coat because there was some grey on her coat, as you will be able to see

Tiff I just thought I'd point out the picture one hemline is different, in it's "okay" for it to show because the overcoat doesn't completely close. It's shows a slice of the front of the dress. I think that makes it okay then for the hemline to show, whereas in Mary's case all we saw was that small portion of the under dress in the hemline, and the color was off...it was a dark color that didn't compliment the dress at all. IMO!!!!

I can't see the second picture, so I'm not sure if it's similar to the first or more like Marys!

Cheerio!

The gray skirt/dress matches the gray patterns in the coat. See here:gray patterns in the coat(tiff's link)

She looks beautiful and radiant. I love the hat.It's no secret that I love asymmetrical hats and this one gorgeous. The cut and the color are beautiful.It is 20xs better than the one she wore to the opening of parliament.

The coat is really busy, but the colors are nice and they really suit her.:)

The first thing I noticed when I saw that outfit were the concealing coat and the low healed shoes...Very maternal

Britters: Sorry that you can't see the second photo! I was going to scan it again last night when my computer stuffed up on me, but the second photo shows the coat all closed up with the hemline a little below the coat, and it looked pretty good. I'll try scan it tonight again!

I must admit that this is the outfit she has worn that I have least liked. I find it frumpy and just generally, well, let's just say not to my liking in any way shape or form. If she's not pregnant she's certanly dressing like she is. It doesn't even have the excuse of being bold, it's just awful and way too dowdy for a young lady. I have found her last few outfits very disappointing--they are too, oh, I don't know, somehow a stereotype of what one might expect a staid royal to wear. Mary's best quality is her freshness and her last few outfits, coupled perhaps with the protocol, complety squash that quality, in my opinion. My favorite photos of her are still the day of the boat race in the Copenhagen harbor because you saw that freshness--and some images from Greenland too. All these hats and fussy outfits just don't do her any favors--I think she would look better in cleaner, sleeker clothing. But if Denmark is pleased with her that's all that really matters.

I absolutely agree with what you said Lucys...She is dressing dowdy with these awful hats and mismatched colors and giving every indication of being pregnant.
I would also like her to dress more sleek and elegant. I really don't want to compare but just saw the pictures of Princess Letizia from her trip to USA. Boy, does she know how to dress. She looks fresh and at the same time looks elegant just like a princess.
I know I shouldn't be comparing these two remarkably distinct ladies. But the last of dresses of Mary have really put me off big time. Hope she finds her style, that of a young and beautiful princess that she is.

There is absolutely no way that I could ever change anyone's opinion about certain pieces of clothing, so I won't argue with you about the 'awful hats' though I personally love most of her hats. But facts, I believe I can argue with! There were no mismatched colors on this particular outfit (if you were referring to this particular outfit) as the grey was on the branches on her coat. If she used any other colour like green, red or even cream (some of the colours suggested), it would look too bright and even busier than it already is. The grey colour played down the outfit and made it look more elegant (well I think it looks elegant...:))

I also do not like comparing Princess Letizia with Princess Mary (as they both have completely different styles) but now that you have....:)

I have to say that Letizia's trip to USA did not show many particular outfits that really stood out to me, it was either really boring, or a really bad mistake that she made. For example, she is wearing a complete grey suit that quite simply put, looks like a piece of carpet (I know it sounds mean...but it does!) pic 2, all her colours are completely mismatched, and there is so much going on, not one of her bests, and finally her gala outfit, two beautiful seperate pieces, but when put together, they just crashed. It made it look like the outfit was wearing her and it looked really bulky and heavy on her. Of course I'm not saying that she hasn't worn any beautiful outfits (like that red dress), but I can't say the outfits Letizia wore to USA were 'fresh' (except for the white suit, which I absolutely adore).

Except for that infamous parliament outfit, which was really bad, I can't say that any of Mary's outfits have been 'frumpy'. They are definately different styles to Letizia, but I sometimes find Letizia's outfits repetative, and a little boring. I find Mary's outfits refreshing and completely out of the stereotype of what the usual princesses wear, like suits, suits...and suits. And after reading what someone wrote on the RB mb which was very true, why should a person wear the same style of clothes every single day, it would get exceedingly boring. It's interesting for both the person herself/himself and for people around the person to explore different styles and touch on different type of styles. It is like in life, we all like to explore different things, to do different things, if we did the same things everyday, it would be very boring!

:) Tiff (a very long post...hope no one minds..I do tend to talk a lot!)

I think Mary is beginning to look like she raided Quenn Elisabeths closet.

I absolutely ADORE CPss Mary's coats!!!! And if QE has coats like that, then I'd like to raid her closet too!! (haha!).

But sadly, QE doesn't have coats like Mary's. If you look at QE's outfits, they're actually all suits suits suits. Kinda like, well a certain other CPss.... except they're on an older woman, so the suits look old on QE as opposed to elegant which they do on that other CPss. I'm not saying that other CPss dresses dowdily, but it does get a bit repetitive.

That's it I'll stop. I generally like the clothes that other CPss wears anyway, but well, for me anyway, it does get really repetitive and I just wished she experimented a little bit more.... :)




P.S. One last time - or maybe not... I love Mary's coat and scarlet hat!!! Reminds me so much of autumn (so appropriate! its autumn in Denmark).

And did you know almost all of QEII's coats go either below the hem of the dresses she has underneath or are the same length? I just thought that was an interesting piece of info...

Wow, really? Well that just goes to show that Mary doesn't dress like QEII!!! *double wink*




Gosh, I really like her coat. Here's a pic to remind you of it. See how the red hat (Hello calls it burgundy and I think I agree) matches perfectly with the red on her coat? *sigh*....

I don't know why people insist on bringing up other princesses and making comparisons, especially between women as different in personality and looks and style as Mary and Letizia. My comment about Mary was about Mary, period. She and Letizia (and all the rest) are very very different women and I would never dress them the same. What looks good on one does not look good on the other. For example, Letizia looks awesome in suits, stunning in suits
But suits don't really look good on Mary. Soft dresses look good on Mary. That's what I meant. She looks better, in my opinion, in soft, youthful dresses and without so many darn hats. I just think Mary's recent outfits have been dowdy. It's all just my opinion, of course.

Ooopps, sorry. But another poster brought it up. I have now edited one of my posts (but not the one discussing QEII/ Mary and Letizia - I'll edit that when the post containing the refence to QEII's closet is also edited :)

And, lol, perhaps you should also edit that comment about suits looking good on one and not the other? coz that's making a comparison as well. Just a suggestion of course....

You sounded cheeky Jasl..lol
And yes, I agree, her wardrobe is nothing like the current QEII's wardrobe...

There's an apology from me too...but do I really have to edit my post about Letizia? I spent so long writing it!

....also can I add this tinsy bit?

is she pregnant?

http://www.hellomagazine.com/royalty.../princessmary/

Princess Mary was positively glowing as she stepped out for an official jaunt to northern Denmark, helping hot up rumours that she may be expecting her first child.

Wearing a striking burgundy hat and carrying a matching bouquet of flowers, Crown Prince Frederik's wife was stylish as ever in the colourful ensemble for the visit to the seaside town of Hirtshals. However, those hoping to get a glimpse of an emerging bump would have been disappointed, as her floral-patterned coat discreetly hid any possible new developments on the matter.

The royal house has yet to confirm or deny the baby talk, first revealed last week in the Danish press. Citing hospital sources, the weekly Se Og Hør reports that princess, accompanied by her husband, had an ultrasound three weeks ago in Copenhagen, and is due to give birth in March.

So I guess those rumours of Mary being pregnant and the explanation of loose clothing and low, practical heels were just exactly that -- rumours. The visits to the doctors and an ultra sound were for her gull bladder operation.

Guess the media was way, way, way off on this one!
