Mary visited the Designers Nest and the CPH Vision Fashion in the Oksnehallen in Copenhagen.

Mary at the Marlene Birger Fashion show

I love the 2nd outfit! =)

Have a look at TRF Rules and FAQ

Funny - as much as I love the first outfit, I hate the 2nd!
I find that vest/jacket top at the fashion show very ugly. As it seems, it's made in some cheap and uncomfortable looking leather. Plus, combined with all that black underneath... not my cup of tea at all.
The daytime outfit is fresh and pretty IMO. A beautiful winter skirt with just the perfect length to wear longer boots, a lively print blouse and light jacket - it all adds up to a very nice overall appearance, neither too formal nor too casual.

Right you are. I find the pink-black ensemble awkward. Too much black and stiff pink piece do not match well.

Didn't we just see the black turtle-neck, long sleeved sweater underneath a puff- sleeved jacket before?? Whew. This time it was combined with a pink puff....Oh I think you get the idea. I liked it the first time as it reminded me of "leg o'mutton" sleeves but this time it just didn't work, imo.
I did love the the daytime look with the boots and pretty skirt. Very fresh and young...

Once again, different photo angles, different looks. These pics don't look at all like the first ones we saw of her outfit... and not nearly as nice as I first thought!

I like the pieces of the first outfit individually, but not together. The blouse and jacket look strange together. The jacket looks like it is a heavy material, and the blouse looks like it is a delicate fabric with some sort of applique. The skirt is nice, but again, these pieces don't look good together, IMO.

The second outfit also seems to have textures that don't really work together. A light-weight blouse over a black wintery-looking turtleneck with a thick leather belt. Again, the pieces are nice separately, but not in combination.

I wasnt too sure about the boots with the rest of the outfit in the PPE pics. The rest is fine by me.
The MB show I'm not so sure about the pink top. The theory's fine, but the execution was a bit off IMO...

I am not crazy about Mary's outfits from recent fashion shows. I prefer 2nd outfit: black pants, black top and pink?lavender? top on it. 1st outfit is too weird. The top is nice, but I agree with other posters that all parts of 1st outfit just don't add up. It is first time I see Mary wearing oots on official occasion.
Generally, I think Mary can do much better.

The outfit from the Marlene Birger show reminded me of the outfit worn on Feb 5. Its too similar jacket sleeve wise. The leather short sleeve jacket isnt nice IMO becasue it looks to shiny and against the all the black it looks like Mary was trying too hard for the look.

The skirt outfit worn the next day was quite pretty. The top looked like lace or embroidery which the trimmings of the top was shown from under the jacket which I liked. The boots worked really well with the flowy skirt. Overall this look really worked for Mary.

Lace top was by heatmade.

For some reason I don't like the first outfit! I like the jacket and the skirt but not together! And also they do not allow the shape of Mary's body to be shown!

I think that the second outfit at Marlene Birger's fashionshow suits her better! And I also like the whole look!

I loved the jacket and the blouse from the 1st outfit.These boots,especially combined with this ugly skirt,could work only for a woman with an average body/weight.Mary has a beautiful slim figure,she doesn't need to hide it behind such awful pieces.From the 2nd outfit I loved the pink blouse and the belt,combined with these elegant trousers,but not the black turtle neck blouse.A white shirt would be much better!

I don´t like the skirt in the first one, but the jacket and blouse are nice, and she looks good IMO:

The first one is fresh,nice combination of different material.Nice boots
The jacket in the second outfit is nice.But I would have prefered it with a less tight belt.Leather is a stif material and this type of belt distrort the nice shape of this jacket.
I like the combination of the colors

Well, as I'm sure many of you know, I like both outfits. Esp the skirt, boots combo one. The pink black one was nice too. But I much prefer the first. I would wear that. I personally never wear pink. But I guess that is personal preference for you. I think she looks very chic in both.

I personally love the combo of the delicate top and the wool jacket. It's a great texture combo.
