Mary attending the handball final in Barcelona
http://1.1.1.1/bmi/2.bp.blogspot.com..._0_0_0_0_2.jpg

The jeans look too casual to me, most men were in suits, Mary could have done much better (like the Danish handball team, too)

I can't open the link, but I have seen the pictures over the Mary's events thread and I agree about the jeans. The outfit Mary wore was way too casual, esp that she was giving out the medals. Has she been watching only, jeans would have been fine, but what she wore was more suitable for an outing with firends, not for an official engagement. Between all the men wearing suits, Mary looked out of place in her jeans.

Strictly speaking it wasn't an official engagement for Mary. It was not entered into the calendar or even mentioned on the DRF's website.
It was only decided on Friday she would attend and perhaps she didn't even know she was going to hand out medals.

I think she dressed in the Scandinavian way (no more casually dressed than Frederik usually is at such events). Whereas in Spain it seems you dress for sport events as if you are attending a business seminar.

IMO She looked lovely between all these men in grey and blue and not at all out of place (despite wearing jeans).

I think she was fine at the tribune,even between all the suits, but the jeans looked odd and innappropriate when she came to hand out the medals. I think no jeans would have make the outfit better, still casual but not misplaced.
It wasn´t an impressive day for Mary in the fashion sense.

Ricarda, it isn´t like Spaniards dress that way to watching sports
People dress exactly like Mary, unless they are an important authority and are placed at the tribune, of course.
I read yesterday some comments on Spanish websites about Mary, and they were quite surprised that she wore jeans.

Mary's outfit was nicely put together. I do see the difference one would dress in Spain and Denmark/Scandinavian countries. I don't think she was underdressed if she wasn't going to handout the medals and since she did then I do think she could've done a bit better.

Considering the event, I thought Mary was dressed perfectly appropriately.
The jacket was really nice.

I am pretty sure she knew she was going to hand out medals; I cannot believe she found out only after already in Spain, on the stands.

The men were wearing grey and blue, but those grey and blue were suits. Jeans among suits looked way too casual and out of place, in my opinion.

I like the outfit but agree jeans weren't the best choice.

They were at a sporting event. Suits or jeans, I thought Mart looked appropriate.

Given how everyone else was dressed in the official box I agree jeans were not the best choice. If she had just been sitting in the regular stands they would have been fine, but in the official box and then presenting medals a better decision could have been made.

Surprised at her way too casual appearance. The outfit itself was a little fussy and strange, imo. Leather belt and blouse hanging down below the jacket. Really unattractive colors too.
Hair and makeup perfect, as well as posture.

IMO this outfit was suitable for the occasion.It was a sport event and Mary wasn't in an official engagement so she can wear whatever she wants.My opinion is that it's the men who were overdressed.
I always find it ridiculous to see men in suits in stadium.
In tennis which may be considered as a posh sport you rarely see spectators in suits.
Duke and and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry weren't overdressed at the arrival of the olympic torch in London last summer.The two princes weren't in suits while it was an official engagement .Moreover,Catherine was wearing a skinny jeans which was imo more awful than a normal jeans.
Letizia has worn much more unsuitable outfits for official engagements remember military events or the mini dress for an official visit in south America.

I hope this belongs in this thread :-)

The Danes have on TV2's website voted our lovely Crown Princess Mary to be Denmark's absolute best-dressed woman:

It is an interesting combination. I too do not like black cuffs. Crown Princess Mary pulled it off.
