The CFW2015 is over Denmark and started yesterday - today two happy women, Mary and good friend Ellen Hillingsøe privately visited the Malene Birger show.

Picture:

Nice to see Mary and Ellen Hillingsøe have found together so well. Ellen is also a lovely woman. Moreover, I noticed Ellen and her husband and children were on holiday with Frederik, Mary and children during their holiday in Gråsten this summer.

Margrethe and Henrik is friends with Ellen Hillingsø's parents.

ADDED:

BT.dk has some great pictures:

Thank you Roskilde.

Yes, that is one of several examples of children of the Regent Couple's friends becoming friends as well and forming their own network.
Akin to a little pet-theory om mine. I.e. that the children of the present day royal heirs and young monarchs will in many if not most cases also become friends and forming a network in the future.

And "The Most Stupid Article of the Week Award" goes to (drum roll) Ekstra Bladet: Mary: Kæmper stadig med det danske – Ekstra Bladet

With this truly remarkable piece of journalism, performed by the incessant DRF-basher Jan Körner.
Even the comments are unanimously (and that is extremely rare!) in shaking their heads.

It deserves a translation:
Crown Princess Mary quickly embraced the Danish language when she came to Denmark with the Crown Prince.
But the Danish grammar can still trouble the Princess
She demonstrated that yesterday at the fashion week in Copenhagen, where she visited the show of Malene Birger.
"I think it was an nice show", said Mary afterwards to Ekstra Bladet and thus revealed that the Danish language still tease/cause problems for the Australian woman.
Today she's once again going out into the fashion week.

Wow, they are really scraping the bottom of the barrel if they're complaining about such a small, insignificant error. If this is the only negative comment they have against Mary, she's doing very well!

Jan Körner of Ekstra Bladet is such a serious nutcase that I honestly don't know if he wrote this because he genuinely meant it.
Because he wanted a lot of hits from readers who wanted to say it is a most idiotic article.
A, most uncharacteristic, humorous article.
Or whether he simply was drunk.
Whatever. His articles are now so silly, that people automatically go into defensive position whenever he writes anything about the DRF.

- The other thing he is writing about these days is about an insanely expensive handbag Mary was presented with back in 2011, I think, and which she apparently has only used once. I'll spare you the details...

some controversy going on in DK was reported by this blog on mary's crocodile birkin hermes bag. they point out that the bag, worth approximately 35000 US Dollars, is made of crocodiles who are skinned alive and using other cruel manufacturing methods. jane birkin, who the bag is named after, has requested that the bag is renamed until the bag is animal cruelty free. mary was asked about her bag during the fashion week, apparently, but declined to comment.

Yes. I understand Mary was presented with this bag in 2011 I believe and that she hasn't used it since.
(Whether that is correct, I don't know. My knowledge of bags is limited).

However, is it proven that the animals are mistreated? Skinning a living alligator seems silly to me. Wouldn't it be easier to skin when it's dead? Alligators are after all very strong!
However, if the bag is controversial, ethical as well as price-wise that may explain why Mary hasn't used it more often.

Anyway, can anyone shed more light on what is up and down in all this?
PETA is against the use of skin for products, period, so I'm a little skeptical.

i think for jane birkin to request her name removed from such an iconic bag, it has got to be proven.
but yes, that's probably why we haven't seen mary use the bag much...

I doubt very much a crocodile was skinned alive. Serves no benefit or purpose. Besides a writhing live croc would make the skinning very difficult indeed. You would be more inclined to slip and make a bad cut with the knife. No croc was skinned alive in my view.
Animal rights activists have shown in the past how radical and untruthful they can be.
These animals are farmed specifically for the fashion industry and would be treated as a very expensive commodity. Costs a lot to farm these animals. So live skinnning would be out of the question as just plain dangerous and silly.

Considering all the publicity around the bag it is very strange that she would appear with it. There are Birkin crocodile bags selling for $150,000. Mary must have a nice clothing budget.

There are plenty of online photos and videos to look at if someone does not believe what is written. Hermes said they would investigate but have so far not reported what they found.

The croc birkin brought directly from the Hermes boutique is between 35,000 - 50,000 depending on color and size. They cost double the price brought online since they are hard to find and are in demand.

The birkin is a classic bag and I love the crocodile bags.

As far as I understand Mary was presented with the bag, apparently back in 2007, not 2011.
At present I'm unable to verify any of this.

The bag should be worth well over 100.000 DKK.

If Mary has only been seen using it once (if that is correct) then I wonder if it was a kind of loan. Just like some of the jewellery she wear from time to time.
Or perhaps she was advised not to use the bag any more? Back in 2007 she was less experienced than now - and you can hardly expect Frederik to be of much help when it comes to handbags.

I agree that Mary got the bag a long time ago (the pictures is from ages ago) but political correctness has changed since then.
Women who are looked upon as 'trend setters' or 'fashion icons' like Mary should not support publicy anything that relates to animaly cruelty, modern slavery etc once this has been pointed out.

Well in the dutch Telegraaf the bag was worth the price of a house 150.000 euro.
If it was a present it is a very expensive present and things like that tend to have a smell of bribary.
It was said that she often wears fur coats that are not political correct to wear and that she does not answer to questions about it.
She is silent like an oyster.

If Mary was photographed with the bag once back in 2007, 8 years ago,
we don't really know if she still has the bag or not, do we?
And if it was hers in the first place. It could have been a loan.

Mary wearing fur often? When was the last time she was seen wearing fur?
And even if she did, she can do it if she wants, even if it's not pc...
BTW, she is not the only lady in the DRF to wear/have worn fur.
