This cape would have done the job much better, imo.

I agree, the velvet cape it more elegant in cut, colour and style although I have seen photos of her with the cape looking both magenta and purple. I would love to see the actual colour.

The same happened with the silver ensemble which, in many photos looked brownish grey. Not nice and not elegant.

I loved seeing the latest outing of the Ruby Parure with the gold gown although I have to admit the hairstyle screamed "Dowager Duchess of Ditchwater" more than Crown Princess of Denmark. The only thing I liked was the placement of the hair pins.

I like the colour on her , I must say all this dresses from the last 3 events are very nice but at the same time are very simple and I guess it is because she accessorize them with all the orders so it can not be dresses with palliate or anything else. Just she has such a nice elegance that she shows them very nice!

Dinner related to Mary receiving the Berlingske Honorary Award

The pants look unflattering, not sure about the top. There are no pics without the coat I guess.

Hope we get another look. I agree the pants don't look flattering here. I do like the top and love the earrings.

Nothing flattering about those pants but the top looks really pretty. I like the earrings and the hairstyle.

Crown Princess Mary's Eveningwear Part 17: September 2016 -

The pants are unflattering. I like the top, but I don't think the coat goes with it. The styles clash imo.

The top is beautiful. Her hair looks great and I love her earrings

I like the jacket but doesn't seem to fit the outfit.

The pants are totally unflattering on her

Disappointing look for Mary, which is very unusual for her. I usually love Mary's looks but this isn't one of them. I'm sure she'll redeem herself with her next outfit though.

I don't know about this. The top and skirt look like they were cut off of 2 different dresses and sewn together. The style, texture and color are completely different. I think I'd like it better if these were 2 different outfits.

it looks like mary has altered the dress she wore in a visit to australia to make a new one, keeping the skirt intact. or maybe it was a skirt + top in the first place and she recycled the skirt with a new top?

I agree Carlotta, looks like another recycle. I must say I like the skirt (or skirt if the dress?) better the first time. The materials and textures go better together.

She looks elegant. I love the skirt/bottom of the dress, and I like the top. But I don't find they go well together. The colors put me off. They either need to match or more if a contrast. Looks like someone made a failed attempt to match.

But I love her accessories. I as always love the new tiara. Wish they would make/buy one for Marie.

Looks like the pink top and skirt from Australia back in 2005. This time recycled with the same lace top as on a State Visit in 2010.

I think that the top is separate from the skirt. The two different materials of the top and skirt don't work together IMO - this outfit looked better the first time with the belt.

I could be wrong, but i think tonight's outfit is actually a two-piece - a silk top with a lace overlay and a matching silk skirt. If I am right, then that plus the lighting could account for the seeming difference in the texture of the materials when in fact they were made to be worn together - as she did tonight - originally.

Certainly not what I was expecting for a state dinner, but she looked beautiful, regardless.
