I love this gown. It has such clean, uncluttered style. I am also interested to see (and love) a return to a wider belt as skinny belts only show if the wearer is as straight as a board.

Skinny belts seem to get lost when worn by women with curves and make the wearer look like a sack tied in the middle so this return to a classic look is really welcome.

The material of the gown is hard to pick as the photo of them arriving showed a flowing print but the dinner close up seemed to show a floral lace with large flowers over a dark lining. I found the metallic edging around the neck, arms and belt intriguing as it gives the gown a much needed unique lift which ensures it is not "just another lace dress".

I love this dress on Mary. It's just perfect for the occasion; not too fussy and simple enough to not over-do. Love the golden braid details. The shawl is such a touch of class to remember her hosts...

Fabulous photos, MaggieD!! Love the back view which one rarely sees. It gives a whole new dimension of the dress and whole look.

Thanks for the adding pictures, MaggieD.

Mary looks beautiful to the dinner in Nuuk, but not only that, healthy and happy too, and it also means much to me when decribing someone as beautiful... that the beauty also radiates from inside.

I agree MaggieDenmark and Roskilde, Mary glowed at the official dinner in Nuuk. I love the photos of her sitting behind the candles, as I feel that they add to her glowing appearance. She is very stylish, and even manages to look elegant in clunky outdoor wear.

I agree, it doesn't match the outfit but it was a nice gesture.


The dress is nice but I am not crazy about it. I find the skirt part a bit too stiff but I guess that's because of the lace.
Ah OK, thanks for the information. I agree with you, that is a nice gesture from Mary. I didn't realize that the shawl had connections to Greenland. In that case, I'll give it a pass.

17 August: Crown Princess Mary wore a summery yellow dress whilst she presented the Hans Christian Anderson Award at the Odense Concert Hall in Odense, Denmark. I quite like it, although there's something off about the fitting on the top half, IMO:

I dont find this dress very flattering, Claire of Lux has worn the same dress, I've posted this in the similar thread.

I like it on both- mainly the color, but you're right the top half isn't very flattering.

I love the color, but I think the dress is a bit high waisted on Mary. It looked much better this time without the hat and gloves. The dress isn't dressy enough for that.

I love that it's pleated. Looks very graceful when she's sitting down.

It does look good while sitting but somehow doesn't look finished to me. I guess it is the waistline, and the top doesn't fit too well.

The dress is pretty and the color is great on her, yet if she had a small belt the same color it would look more finished, more put together. And perhaps a small brooch also. This way that she is wearing it, looks like a last minute thought, grab something from the closet and go....She is looking very pretty these days.

It's a lovely dress but I don't find it dressy for an award ceremony.

Beautiful. I love Mary's hair like this, simply adore it,though I do think it makes her look older. But who cares when you look this good?
