Love the dress on both of them, but I agree with dbarn that Victoria won this particular head-to-head.

I think how Victoria styled it played to the delicacy and romantic slant of the dress. The accessories, hairpiece, etc., all worked to make a kind of --- to me --- total dreamy, delicate look.

While there's nothing wrong with the bag, shoes and jacket Mary wore (I thought they were all great pieces, BTW), they added a harder, businesslike edge to a dress that was leaning toward a softer, more pretty, rather than businesslike, look. So, the complete look she had on kind of reminded me of two opposing opinions clashing, in a way.

Maybe I'm not saying it correctly to get my point across. But Victoria's came across to me like one mind created it, versus Mary's coming across to me like TWO different minds having created her total look.

Mary attended the opening ceremony of the first global conference on contraception, reproductive and sexual health in Copenhagen on May 22. It's been an evening event so I've moved your post over here!

I don't like the blazer and dress together. The blazer doesn't work with this dress too dark and heavy.

The dress is from Danish Malene Birger

The dress is very romantic and summery, I like it very much. With the blazer has Mary styled the dress so it fits to the important work meeting she attend. IMO looks Mary simple, professionally and pretty. But I hope that we one day will see the dress without the blazer. Maybe during the summer to a more relaxing event

If only those 2 are not wearing it to the SAME event, this would be a surprise, uuuuiiii....

BTW, Victoria wins with her style of the outfit!

Crown Princess Mary's ensemble is very elegant. I like the hairstyle, but I am not sure about the hair colour.

The dress is lovely and the blazer is nice but not together. This kind of dress is nice to wear alone. Im not fond of the hair color.

I like the reddish color on her but like when it's dark brownish black the best.

I really love the dress. It's delicate and light, and quite perfect for summer. Mary looks great in it.

Thanks god she only RE-USED the gown and did not RECYCLE it ;-)
It would be a pity if she had cut the dress in pieces and had something different made out of it,which would be a good idea for some dresses but not this special one because it looks so pretty on CP Mary!

I prefer the romantic,delicate hairstyle she has worn in 2008 to the open hair, but she looked fantastic both times she wore the dress ,it is very flattering and elegant.
