IMO this is her best look for the New Year's Courts in 2015.

Finally! A look I love! Best look of the 3! And boy, when the CPC enters the room, the butlers inspect the carpet closely!

oh gosh no, I hate that. Victoria wore her sash on the outside and it makes it look sloppy, somehow. I definitely prefer the way Mary wears it.

I like Crown Princess Mary's recycling of the ensembles. A satiny ribbon around a waistline seems unnecessary. The ensemble is all right.

I am not sure about the current trend for women wearing only one glove. I remember reading once about glove etiquette that a lady never removes her gloves to shake hands unless they are soiled (example would be gardening gloves). I wish I could remember where I read this but I haven't found the book yet. Notice that QEII always wears both gloves and looks very put together in the process. The other royals who wear only one give the impression that they don't quite know what to do with gloves. I realize that they probably think it more polite to use a bare hand to shake hands but if they are going to do that they need to take off both. Standing around wearing one glove and carrying the other just looks silly and spoils whatever look they are trying to pull off.

Edit for Additional info: Found my source. "A Guide to Elegance" by Genevieve Antoine Dariaux
Published by HarperCollins Publishers UK. Copyright 1964, 2003. From page 65 "But a lady never takes off her gloves in order to shake hands (unless, of course, they are very soiled gardening or riding gloves) and furthermore, she never needs to apologize for keeping them on."

A lovely look and a nice color combination but I am not a big fan of her jacket matched with such a skirt. Nevertheless she looked good.

I absolutely love this look! It's so princess like and whimsical. I love the color combination. This gown is simply stunning. One of her best looks.

I seem to remember a discussion in these threads way back - about wearing one glove and holding the other and if remember correctly that is the correct, traditional way for the royal ladies. I think that someone at that time provided pictures of Queen Margrethe and Queen Elizabeth with one glove held in hand.
I find it very elegant actually.

I really loved the blue gown, though the collar was a bit much. The shade of blue is lovely on Mary. The pink and black ensemble is OK, but I'm not crazy about it.

I adore this! One of my absolute favorites on Mary. I much prefer her hair this way than as worn in 2010.

This has always been one of my absolute favs, pink and brown together, yummy, and tulle and velvet. But I really dislike the added belt this year, it really destroys the line of the jacket.
I agree about the glove thing, I think the one glove trend was started by somebody impeccable and stylish, like princess grace and it caught on. I will have to do some research
