Crown Princess Mary looked elegant. A purple pillbox hat with an appropriate hairstyle and unfussy elegant clothes matched well.

She is so polished and he just doesnt make the grade for me.

But we can agree to differ
I see what you mean about the suit. I think Joachim must have used hair product because his hair stayed relatively neat. As for the suit? Well the wind was blowing against it and ruined the cut, but I think Frederek's habit of standing in a military "at ease" stance just doesn't do it for Civvies.

Mary's ensemble from the top of her head to the tip of her toes was as near to perfect she can get. I loved the blush pink coat and dress and her purple accessories were just plain amazing.

The ash pink dress did help a little to take away from the white coat but it wasn't a strong enough color to make her look really good. Mary can look really good in strong colors but she makes me want to scream when I see her in the awful pale colors she keeps wearing.
I agree that she should stick with the deeper jewel tones.

The numbering and the bolding of the print are mine; I just did it for clarity. - I agree about everything, including the dress last week being a bit too tight.

I do like the hat and the shoes, colour as well, but there's nothing unusual about them, so cannot get excited about them. They are nice, but I don't think there's anything awesome about them. Nor does there have to be; I'm just saying that they are a nice pair of shoes and a nice hat.

And their beautiful colours were miles apart, separated by a pale, long, stretch of coat fabric. The coat is beautiful, too, but it's just the wrong colour for her, I find.

The coat looks pale pink to me. It is a beautifully made coat, look at the slash pockets on the sides. Also, the length of the coat and slightly shorter dress length, these details show. Beautiful tailoring and style. The hat is truly wonderful, I do wish she didn't wear it so far back on her head. Love the idea of the purple accents, not typical,with pale pink.

Very polished, as someone has mentioned. The whole ensemble, hair and make-up, looks great.

She looked pure perfection today. One of my favourite hats+hair combo ever in the royal world.

Mary looks elegant in this ensemble. However I do agree that the color of the coat does not suit her. I do agree she looks better in deeper tones. Love the hat and shoes though.

Fred should get a stylist or at least ask Mary to help him on his appearance nowadays. If I didn't know he is a crown prince I would've guessed he's just a regular guy wearing a suit. I mean of all the crown princes/current kings who are within his age range, his look, even his stance, is sometimes sloppy.

Completely agree with you, the classic look works well for her.

Today, Mary visited the Tietgen Business College in connection with her Mary Foundation's project "Network" wearing a black/white dress, black blazer and black tights. A nice look.. and this woman may probably has the best legs in Denmark

I think the dress is excellent in style and colour, but too short.

Yes, she is a perfect example that you can look stylish while dressing in almost all black (with dark hair to boot!), while for some reason when Mette-Marit does it she looks like a Sicilian widow, despite her bleached hair. I think the big difference is that Mary really gives thought to her position and the appropriate dress it requires, resulting in her looking fantastic even when she has a fashion "miss".

Ah, that was the word I was looking for . . . aubergine! It tastes disgusting but the colour is to die for.

I agree that she has great legs, which probably why, when I saw her black tights I thought no, just no. It's way too heavy. But then I realised that I am enjoying a beautiful Spring and looking forward to a fabulous Summer while most of you are feeling the nip in the air in late Autumn.

So, a rethink on the black tights, but I still hate them with pumps and think they should only be worn with ankle boots or any boots for that matter.

In Autumn/Winter I use barely black stockings with dresses and court shoes as it is a much softer "look" than heavy black tights that remind me of the ones I used to wear in Winter with my school uniform. Ugh! No fond memories there!

CPMary looked stunning at the opening of Parliament, here pillbox hat was divine and she can wear most types of hats(royal hat blog). I loved her coat, I thought the color was a very pale pink with the dark purple showed nicely. In viewing some of the pictures from the Hello Canada magazine, it showed really great pictures of her and Fred. Also showed there is no love lost between Marie and her..........whoa I thought of that picture. PMarie's outfit didn't do her justice, a straw hat with a wool winter jacket..........not good choices at all.

I find the dress a bit too short and the overall was too dark. The print of the dress is not flattering. Not her best look.
