The First pic was taken at the presentation of the Designer's Nest Award. The second pic was taken at the Danish Refugee Help Fashion Show, "Fashion with a purpose" at the Royal Academy for Art Architect School at Holmen.

I've noticed alot of both pros and cons in regards to mary and her heels during her pregnancy. I can only tell you from personal experience wearing 4 in and smaller heels for over 20 some odd years, even during my pregnancy, that the muscles in your calves and thighs become accustomed to heels. As well as your balance, hips and lower back. you adjust your weight and posture accordingly. When you switch to wearing flats, it becomes very uncomfortable because the muscles in your legs have to stretch out and you have to realign your body and weight. And with the extra weight of pregnancy, your better off sticking to what your body is used to wearing. I was wearing my stilettos to the office when I was 8 mos pregnant. When I went in for my ob check ups, my doctor joked around that when I had my baby, she would probably come out wearing little high heels! Hee! Hee! Just thought I'd toss out that little bit of info if anyone cared.
Have a wonderfuld day everyone!!!

I am going to have to object to the fashion is superficial statement. Fashion and clothing are vitally important to human beings on a fundamental level such as protection for the body, and identification (think policeman or priest), and from a money/industry standpoint. But also from an intellectual and emotional viewpoint. Clothes can make us feel, they can also make us think about someone and pass judgement. They help us declare our identity and become part of social groups. Human beings are very visual creatures. If we were not we would all be wearing the same grey lifeless, shapeless suit made of the same material. All of us. All our homes, buildings etc would be the same. But they are not. We really don't need a nice home, nice furnishings, all we need is a box with a roof, and a sleeping bag. Why bother gardening unless to grow food exclusively? Flowers are pointless visuals? No they are not. They smell good, they are pretty and make us happy. The same can be said of fashion. Does man need art? music? Not really. We can survive without them. But the question is do we want to? Fashion can be put in the same catagory. I for one do not want to look like a drone or carbon copy. I love color, cut, fabric etc. :)

I agree! I love my clothes and I love feeling good and I love dressing up too!:)

Her promoting fashion industry helps create jobs so people can work and feed their families.

Nothing wrong with that to me.:p

EmmieLou, according to the Hello article, Mary wore the green coat and the outfit on the same day.

It says:

"The pretty Australian was sporting a trendy green velvet jacket with empire-line fastening and jeans when she made her entrance. She later swapped the garment for an oriental-style number with an eye-catching brooch as she and two companions arrived for local label Munthe Plus Simonsen's latest collection."

This all happened the day before she wore the light blue blouse outfit
http://www.theroyalforums.com/forums...hmentid=180661

So I think she wore the green coat on August 11th.

As I was never to interested in Mary (her fashioncovers was one of the reasons) I did not know that she was involved in something other then fashion and the occasional flower/smile/shake hands/cut ribbons visits. But I am glad to hear that she is involved in Mental Health etc. As a poster discribs it as one of her key patronages I assume she is actively involved anyway.
However I would like to point out that there is a difference in being a patron and to be actively involved im some causes. Bing a patron sometimes merely requires one (or not even one) visit, while active involvement is something completely different.
Anyway, all the best to Mary and her causes.

The image that Mary is only interested in fashion was brought on by Mary herself. She started her royal life by modelling (not only appearing, but actually posing like professional models) too often on magazine covers. It left many with the impression she was fixated with fashion, and not interested in anything else.
If she had started off by being seen more often with other projects (mental health etc), she wouldn´t have invited this image. She made that choice (and the royal advisors perhaps failed to advise against it), and even appeared with Fred in some pics. This gives people who value charity work the impression that the crown princely couple are rather unserious; more into hip and fashionable things.

For example, would it be reasonable for Alex to only enjoy music produced by the DR Girls choir (not sure what it's called)? Of course not! But back to Mary - look at what she wears and you will see that a majority of it will be unrecognisable to us (for now) and you know why? Probably because we can't find it in the websites by international designers... they are probably by unknown Danish designers, which brings us full circle to Mary and her connection with CIFF: to help make Danish fashion known to the rest of the world.
that's a fallacy. your example can be compared in the same level if it involved wearing the same type of clothes all the time. that's obviously impossible. besides, the fact of listening to music needs to be much more varied or people may become crazy. letizia for example just used 2 or 3 clothes and accesories from international designers and she normally uses spanish ones, so that proves it's not impossible. however, the list with mary is much longer and what was even more was the fact that she posed for a danish magazine to promote danish fashion and had clothes from international designers on...

i really agree with what xandra and marengo said. it couldn't have been better said.

The amazing fact is that I have not seen anybody go to as many fashion shows as Mary who is not in the business. Buyers for department stores, magazine editors with a deadline for an article all have a job to do. They're in the business of translating the catwalk into something that people may want to buy. Even actors and actresses are looking for a new look to supplant the old one because they need to reinvent themselves all the time. They go a lot because they have a job to do. But Mary's frequent attendances are very unusual. Royals don't have to change their looks like actresses do or as frequently.

To be charitable, she may be teaching herself about high fashion; she didn't get much exposure to it before meeting the CP and looking nice is part of the job. I just think a good image consultant could do the job better.

Mary doesn't constantly attend fashion shows. For the past week or so we have seen her attend many, but that is because their is a Fashion Week or something along those lines going on now in Denmark now. We saw Mary do the same thing last year around this time. It was one of her first public engagements. Also since she is a patron of Danish fashion (not sure of the technical term of her patronage), Mary most likley should attend fashion shows when possible in Denmark, and most likely will.

Now I am not saying that Mary doesn't enjoy attending the shows. She probably does a great deal. Let's be honest. Mary does seem to be interested in clothing. I will also go as far to say as some that since Mary has become a Princess she has bought more than her share of clothing and had her share of photo shoots. Clearly taking fashion under her patronage was a no brainer for her.

Half a million dollars for two danishes

AUSTRALIA'S fascination with Princess Mary and her fairytale marriage to the future king of Denmark has come at a right royal cost to taxpayers.

Almost $500,000 has been forked out for the glamour couple since they tied the knot last year.....

Good grief and they're not even «their» royals! Diplomacy can be expensive.

I am so sorry, but its just getting a tad bit repetitive. Mary attends these shows because she's the patron of CIFF. Do we really have to keep saying it? CIFF stands for (I think) Copenhagen Inernational Fashion Fair. CIFF holds an exhibition twice a year... I believe it's the largest fashion exhibition in the northern hemishpere (I forget or don't know if I remember that correctly or what)... Mary attends these fashion shows because its during the biannual exhibition.

It was mentioned that the attendance of those who go to these shows because "they have a job to do" is justified. Well then there you go! Mary is patron for CIFF..... she goes to the CIFF exhibitions because it is one of her duties as a Crown Princess.

Hopefully people will keep that in mind? Don't let the fact that it is glamorous and enviable stop you from realizing that (i) it is part of her job to attend CIFF events, and (ii) even though it is fashion, there are real people behind the scenes who Mary is helping (fashion designers, those in textiles, retail, the models etc... heck, even the tourism industry, which my research shows, is Denmark's fourth largest industry .... hehe (though I could be relying on old documents! lol... I can never seem to get Denmark's fourth largest industry right:p )....

I agree that it was a bad decision to start with a magazine cover. I didn't like that at all.
And it created an image which is hard to get rid off.
Because some people seem to be unable to get over their first impressions
and don't take the trouble to inform themselves better.

Mary attended a lot of functions which had nothing to do with fashion.
She is patron of 18 organisations, only two of them are connected with fashion,
the main focus is put on social and health issues (e.g. The Heart Association, The BrainInjury Association, 2 Mental Health organizations, The Kidney Association, The Rare Disorders Association, WHO ...)
She had unofficial working meetings with all of them. For example a meeting with WHO on August, 8th.

As far as charity work is concerned she has actually done more than any of the other new crownprincesses has
in the first 15 months after her marriage.

On Tuesday she attended the opening of a new cancer councelling. The pics have been posted her.
I wonder why there haven't been just as many comments on that event as on the fashion event.
Perhaps some of the messageboard-posters are just too superficial?:)
