I like her shoes very much, sorta like French Nobility used to wear in the 17th century.
the shoes look like the ones julia posted a picture of on 01-02-2005, churchservice for the tsunami victims, but they were brown.

On the whole I think she was much better dressed on that day than on these pictures. For me it is the wrong stockings with that kind of shoes and the wallpaper print of her suite.

Well, the Danish, really trashy, magazine Se & Hør wrote this story in last week's edition (26 January):

Quote:
ALEXANDRA: HAR DET SKIDT

Der er ved at brede sig en frygt for om prinsesse Alexandra helbred skranter alvorligt

Prinsesse Alexandra har det skidt. Det hersker der ingen tvivl om blandt de kendte, som har set SE og HØRs billeder i sidste uge af en meget mager prinsesse til et UNICEF-arrangement.
Årsagen til at prinsesse Alexandra på kort tid har forvandlet sig fra nips til næsten ingenting, er de færreste i tvivl om. Den skal findes i separationen fra prins Joachim og den svære tid, der er fulgt i kølvandet på offentliggørelsen af selvsamme.
Så vidt SE og HØR erfarer, er prinsessen begyndt at træne intensivt flere gange om ugen i fitnesscenteret Arndal under Hotel D’Angleterre.
Overdreven træning, manglende appetit grænsende til anoreksi er typiske tegn på, at noget er alvorlig galt.
Vi har spurgt en række kendte om, hvad de tror, der er fat med prinsessen.
Læs hvad de siger i SE og HØR
Apparently Alexandra has lost some weight, which may be true. According to Se & Hør she exercises several times a week at a gym located in the basement of the fancy hotel D'Angleterre. The mag has asked some Danish celebs what they think is the reason behind this weightloss, and of course they all point at the pressure because of the separation from Joachim.

I think this story, more or less speculations, would be the source behind stories in Sweden this week.

This week the mag takes it to a new level, writing about Alexandra's "secret past" as the girlfriend of an owner of a chain of fitness clubs.

This is what I found on a quick googling:

http://web2.sasa.com/SasaWeb/eng/application/pw.jsp

This story is old, and I think it was first told be Ekstra Bladet during the year after the wedding. The story back then and now is accompanied by some less flattering pictures of a very young Alexandra. I remember reading in Trine Larsen's book on Alexandra, that apparently Alexandra's mother called this Eddie Phillips to ask him to be quiet about this relationship - and I don't think, he has spoken since. Maybe he saw it as an easy way to get some publicity on his business - he seems like a sleazy kind of guy.

Well, in this week's Se & Hør they use this old story to confirm, that Alexandra has always been "obsessed" with being very fit:

Quote:
ALEXANDRA: HEMMELIG FORTID



Siden sine unge år i Hongkong har Alexandra været besat af vægttab og træning. I en periode dannede hun par med Sydøstasiens mest succesrige fitness-millionær



Trangen til at være tynd og benet sidder tilsyneladende dybt forankret i prinsesse Alexandras personlighed. Allerede som teenager stræbte hun efter at kontrollere kiloene og bevare figuren.
Ord som forbrænding, fedtprocent, taljemål og træning kom til at styre Alexandras liv, og det var derfor ikke noget tilfælde, at hun nogle år før mødet med prins Joachim blev kæreste med slankeguruen Eddie Phillips – stifter og medejer af Sydøstasiens mest eksklusive fitnesskæde Phillip Wain International.

What's wrong of exercising and being fit? A woman after 30 ought to exercise and she's 40 at that. I don't see anything more than Alex dress fitness suit to an ad, so what's so secret about that. Why is that so scandelous?
And talk about past relationships, do they think Alex was a virgin?

I have to agree - I think she looks so frumpy. the suit is dull with a hideous print on it, and the length is awkward and dowdy and not very form-fitting if you look at the hips. Those shoes also not to be have perilously high heels to not make even the slimmest woman look like she has fat calves (see the pair Mary wore in london with the hugo boss dress - they were stunning). I don't think this is Alexandra at her best!

Thank you for the pictures and translations Grand Duchess. I was hoping to see the Princess in a new outfit from her visit during fashion week. Although recycling is nice I have seen that outfit at least 3 times already.I thought that HCA ambassadors were already appointed for Finland...

It is so nice to see those children and people enduring the coldness of the weather just to greet and see Princess Alexandra.


Aren't there any pictures yet released for the event she attended last February 26?
