Yes, Mary looks good. The dress is not my cup of tea, but it is correct for the evening. She looks good, her dress never overpowers her.

I know!!! Why is it so shiny and wrinkled? at least it is a black suit and it isn't so obvious. Imagine if it was grey!!

I like this dress. At first glance, I thought that it was a bit too 1960s; then, I looked at the other attendees, and I realized that this dress was a perfect choice for this event.
I love this dress!!!It´s funny and youthful, not "very formal", perfect for the event.

I love the dress! It shows her confidence in her style. Who is the dress by? Does anyone know?

Well,it needs courage to wear such a dress-in any event,in my opinion-and generally,it's not my cup of tea.In other words,I wouldn't wear it,but I like seeing it on Mary She definitely knows how to wear "difficult" pieces.Now I have to comment on Frederick's suit,right?Well,I'll put it like this:I'm sure that Elton John would be very jealous

i'm not such a fan of the dress. i think it doesn't look amazing, although considering she was meeting sportspeople, it seems appropriate not to wear something extremely formal.

it's actually temperley, here is a picture in the catwalk.

Actually,it's the type of dress I could easily imagine worn by a female artist:a painter or a sculptor,for example.Not a princess,no way

I'm not a fan of the dress personally and I wonder why she couldn't have recycled an older outfit. She has plenty of other outfits and I would like to see a bit more recycling given the world's economic state. Yes, I understand she's promoting the fashion industry by wearing new outfits; however, I don't think her outfit selection has much impact on the GDP, yet by recyclying more she would show greater sensitivity to the economy and it would be good press for the royal family (just like QEII was praised).

Agreed, the dress definitly looks funny and cute. Frederik should have chosen at least a matching tie ... plenty of room for improvement for him

The dress WAS worn before, for a private christening party in February 2008 http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v3...s/4dabe5d0.jpg
Mary does a lot of recycling, much more than other Princesses.

Edit:
In 2008 Princess Mary has worn 51 "new" outfits, and 81 times she has recycled something which have seen in previous years or early in 2008.
In 2009 every outfit we've seen have been recycled

Good eye Jinigirl. Thanks for pointing that out. I should clarify - I never meant to suggest she doesn't recycle often. I know there are many examples, which it great. I just would like to see it more generally.

The picture where you can see the dress under the black coat was worn, as mentioned above, for the christening party for Palma Handwerk (her father Jeppe Handwerk is a old friend of Frederik)
2nd February 2008.
