i certainly can't recall many others using those kind of chanel sunglasses with big C'S on each side...

some of them do use purses with the logos, right enough, but i don't think it can be interpreted in the same way, since their faces are way more photographed than purses, aren't they?

i'm sorry, i simply find it awful when people wear brands showing so "evidently". i think many other experts or ladies with elegance and class would agree with me. did we ever see truly classy ladies use anything with a big logo of brands such as chanel, armani, versace, prada, etc?

That's kind of grasping at straws, Carlota.

We are talking glasses, not an entire outfit. It is merely an accessory and just so happens to have the chanel label on the side. I've got a pair (had atm, as I can't seem to find them.lol.), bought them in Paris around two years ago and are of a smaller frame though the logo is still evident.

If Mary walked around sporting, bags, shoes and an entire outfit with designer labels in clear view then quite possibly there would be something to discuss, but she doesn't and they are just sunglasses.

...Uhhh???? does this argumentation convince yourself? I fail completely to see the logic in distinguishing between sunglasses and purses in this connection. No doubt my fault ...

My God! What a lot of fuss! I personally have seen photos of Maxima with clearly labelled glasses such as Mary's but to be honest, I dont see it as being a big deal. We all know they spend that much money on the things so why hide it?

Also consider that sure she was at an engagement when she wore them, but it was hardly the arrival of the Brazilian president, for example.

Finally, she's damned if she does and damned if she doesn't - if she was wearing $10 sunnies she'd not be "up to standard" would she?

I hope I haven't offended anyone, as ever, this is just my personal opinion

A pair of chanel sunglasses with the chanel label on either side of the frame.

Aurora, if you check this post out I believe you will find the sun glasses in question: Crown Princess Mary's Patronages and Charities

If I am wrong, I do apologise, not only for the goose chase (Aurora), but also my previous comment.

Thanks Marmi and Madame Royale. I went back and read every post more carefully and I figured things out but I didn't recall Mary wearing sunglasses. But I figured it was about the golf event then I came back here to page 10 and I saw marmi's post with the link. So now it all makes sense to me. I felt so silly not knowing but I was clueless for a second there as to what was going on. It's amazing to me all the time how long debates can develop weeks after an event and usually over such a relatively small detail. Oh well, that's why I love these forums.

You're welcome aurora, its never a good feeling not to know whats going on, and its nice to feel like youve helped someone.

To get back to the topic, does anyone have any ideas/expectations as to what they expect or hope for in NY?

Oh that's perfectly fine, marmi. No apology needed

I'm looking forward to seeing what Mary wears. Especially during the evening events.

I'd very much like to see this gorgeous two piece make another outing. It has afterall been well over two years (having first been worn to the 90th Anniversary Red Cross ball in Sydney '05') and being in New York, I think it would be a sweet gesture to wear Oscar De La Renta.

You're such a wonderful writer, Madame Royale. Everytime I read one of your post, I learn something. Your last statement is especially witty!!

I can't wait for tomorrow to see what she will be wearing, no doubt some wonderful outfits!

I certainly wouldn't be disappointed by that madame Royale. Would love to see the red off the shoulder dress from the same trip again soon too. I'm hoping for more hats during the day. and lovely coats.
what temperature is it in NY at the moment, can anyone tell me (in celcius if possible Please)? or link me to a website if thats easier?

The evening gown you speak of is by Danish designer, Niels Kristiansen, and would have to be one of my top three choices It's simply beautiful and displays a most scrumptious décolleté.

Yes, I love it too :)

I think Mary should be wearing some Danish Designers, she is there to promote the Danish Culture so Danish Designers will be the best choice
to wear!

I agree that Mary should try to stick to some Danish designers for this visit. This visit is very Danish designer/culture oriented so it would be the smart thing to do. She had a bit more freedom during the Australia visit IMO with her clothing. So far we've seen Mary in this coat http://img189.imagevenue.com/view.ph...2_122_13lo.jpgwhich is DAY Birger & Mikkelsen.
