That's a very creative and genius way of recycling and altering the gown. It's definitely spectacular but personally I am not really fond of this dress. The combination of velvet and the sparkly gown seem odd for me, but I can totally see why most people love the dress. Mary looked pretty fine though.

Not crazy about the recycling I love the colour but don't like the gown.

Fabulous gown. The velvet is very lightweight, most likely silk velvet and goes very well with the jeweled skirt. The plain color and long sleeves and scooped neck and back are perfect for showing the jewels and orders. What I really love is the drape of the overlay train, how it looks like a flower. Very well:)

Absolutely stunning, that made me go WOW, that a gorgeous lady. I love this gown, the idea of using 2 different gowns to make one, is just amazing. The detail on the sleeves pulls it all together. Nothing wrong in recycling for it says money and then you can think outside the box and what you want to create. Mary is one very beautiful woman and gets more so each year. And of course I can't forget Frederick for he is so darn handsome and I love him in his uniforms. He also looks great in swimming trunks as seen on the beach.

She has worn sleeveless before and managed with capes and stoles on arrival. Marie seems to have nothing at all with her sleeveless outfit. It's certainly a different outfit from previous ones and stands on it's own merit I guess.

It is an incredible super great idea to use the skirt of the bambi dress and create that beautiful velvet top with that train and when ever she wants she can use again the bambi dress! she looks stunning , love it!

Crown Princess Mary is just a beautiful and very elegant young woman.

Love the gown, the color and the jewels, especially her hair from the back. Complete look. Nice.

I don't think the Queen (or the stylist) has anything to do with this.
This looks like 'Birgit Hallstein' to me. She has created seveal gowns in this style for Mary.
And the fabulous Jesper Hovring 'Bambi Award' gown looks like a two-piece and this time the skirt was recycled.

If the velvet was new, I wouldn't be surprised if Crown Princess Mary also had a skirt made out of the velvet.

Looking closely at this picture: http://i.dailymail.co.uk/i/pix/2016/...1704285303.jpg
The same material as the skirt's was used to make the cuffs of the sleeve, then the extra attachment of crystal crusts as embellishment over the sewing line. Interesting details!

Nice cuffs! Hadn't noticed them before. Good color lipstick too. If this is Birgitta hall stein as Nordic mentioned, is she the one to have redesigned the red velvet?

Yes, it's Birgit Hallstein. And this blue "top" looks very similar to the red one.

Oh I noticed the cuffs! They added soo much elegance to the entire look. It's the little touches that mean so much...

I also noticed the detail work on the velvet top, that really pulled the 2 pieces together to make an very exquisite gown. Just a thought, wondering if at some time in the future there would be a velvet bottom to go with the top part of the Bambi gown, say something with a few crystals on the bottom that would pull the 2 pieces together like this was done for tonight. Mary makes very good use of her clothing and this is great recycling done on a grand scale.

Her great blue evening gown should have been better with her wedding tiara.
