Thanks, Iceflower

Normally I don't say much about fashion but what is going on here?!?

Mary is in flower-power gala.
QMII is wearing a kimono.
PH is in Hollywood-Chinese-master-villain outfit.
For whatever reason our Marie reminds me of Heidi from the Alps.

I thought outfits like QMII's and Mary's were burned when people came to their senses during the grass-drought in 1975.

Seriously, was the theme nostalgia?

Oh wow, not a great day of fashion for the DRF, something surely must have gone wrong there ... at least Frederik and Joachim looks dapper in their suits and bowties.

As always, it's wonderful to see them all out together.

Well looking at the other guest, apparently only Henrik and the royal ladoes got the memo that it was a "Back to San Francisco 1968 Summer of Love" party. None of the other guests arrive in costumes or looked like they were tripping. I wonder if they passed the bong around after dinner?

I think those two crazy kids Daisy and Henrik convinced the family to channel the 1960's. I'm surprised that QMII isn't wearing the famous poppies ... that would have just been the cherry on the cake!

Nothing wrong with Mary’s or QMII’s fashion. Mary is wearing Vietnamese custom dress and QMII is also wearing Vietnamese/Chinese custom dress. I don't see any wrong with prince Hendrix wearing Chinese custom top. They may be purchased the outfits while they visited Viet Nam country awhile ago. Some of comment sounds like only western outfits are good while Asian custom are not decent.

That is just way too much lmao. Aww. Mary's dress would work if everyone in the picture were not next to her. Same for the Queen. All together and it's just one big bright headache.

*dims the light on Macbook to compensate*

Probably perfectly normal to wear such outfits at a gala in Vietnam but at a black tie gala in Denmark they do look decidedly out of place when compared to the other guests.

Queen M and PH I better not comment on but Mary's flower-power dress

Heidi from the Alps looks a bit boring compared to the others.

IMO it's quite obvious there was a theme at this "World Wildlife" event which was not only followed by the royal family but also by some guests.
And some comments are indeed quite revealing.

I must admit that I LOVE the dress CPss Mary is wearing :)

I think there was a theme, because some other guests also dressed up in asian-costumes :)

Queen and the Prince both look like they are in Asian wear. Seems Marie forgot the memo or didn't receive it. Queen and Marie looked great!

It looks like this event was Asian dress code! However it is to celebrate the WWF Denmark's 40 anniversary it is dubious if this kind of events are really necessary...does the Royal family makes any efforts towards the global financial crisis?Or if Denmark is not a part of this crisis maybe they should give the example on how to prevent and make the coorect iniciatives for it...

This is an event to celebrate the 40 jubilee of WWF Denmark which was founded by Prince Henrik. What does the global financial crisis have to do with it?
Whether it's necessary: Is the Queen's Diamond Jubilee/Queen Margrethe's 40 Jubilee really necessary? Is a big christening/wedding really necessary? Is any celebration really necessary?

Btw, to stop consumption/spending money doesn't prevent the financial crisis.

I think nowadays the royal family should consider wich events are really necessary, those glamorous party, with special costumes, with special guest, were of course they spend a lot of money, to me they are really not necessary...and maybe it is time to consider not to spend so mucht money in fancy things...
