I can almost see QMII puffing on her cigarette, exclaiming: "Groovy, Henri, groovy".

I think Mary received a lof of gifts in her postion, the same the Queen, and this probably was a gift and becasue she has so much evening gowns and she uses them so regularly probably this was something different that she wanted to use or may be she couldn't care less like one time she mention: I put my "uniform" and go to work , and if it was a gift she wanted to curtesy to use it! we care so much how she dress but aftr so many yeas in hr position may be she doesnt ccare so much anymore.........

It's something that could have been worn in Austin Powers. Not my favorite.

Brilliant!

Makes one wonder what else the Prince Consort grows in his fields at Chteau de Cax

I wouldn't mind being at any party Henrik is at. He sounds like a real corker!

I fear there is a hippie inside Mary, just waiting to burst out!

Billed Bladet has compiled a gallery of similar outfits worn by Mary: https://picasaweb.google.com/1008659...54/MaryIMNster

I wonder about the future.....
QMII is well known for her colourful attires, Mary may eventually surpass her...
And Frederik as you know, has on several occasions proved that he is his father's son, dress wise.

What Mary was wearing is a Vietnamese traditional dress called o di (long dress). It has been modernised over the years so it has the boat collar and fitted to the body. To a Vietnamese like myself, Mary wore it quite well, because it is not easy to wear and looks graceful at the same time. We used to walk slower in smaller steps.
QM is wearing a court overcoat. In the olden days, the court ladies wore these to court. The colours and embroidery reflected their ranks.
Henrik was obviously wore a Chinese shirt for men.
If you happen to go to Vietnam, ladies, you will be addicted to these o di and I think Mary is one of those who are. And BTW, the trend today is slightly shorter than Mary's but it can never be as short as a tunic. The width of the legs of the pants can be different too.

Thanks a lot mellie for explanation, and please do not feel offended by our critics. It's true that the eye in an outfit changes if this is worn like an ethnik piece, rather that an actual everyday international outfit.
It is logicall that all 3 worn Vietnamese, for me its like a compliment to Prince Henrik, who has been grown in Vietnam (then Indochine), he speaks the language and adores the country.

As long as Mary doesn't start wearing that flowered head piece/tiara that QMII has!

Maybe Mary's dress was inspired by the Crown Prince Couple's ceiling


the ceiling artwork
Billed-Bladet - Kronprinsparrets nye Amalienborg

the dress

Good comparison, polyesco! Let us hope that from now on it will stay on the ceiling or until they visit Vietnam.. :)

Oh dear, oh dear, oh dear. Mary's makeup was nice but this is unquestionably the worst outfit I have ever seen her in and the earrings did not match it at all. What was going on with the dress code of the royal ladies? What were they thinking?
