Thank you for the find. Quite interesting that this is from the 2008 collection and only worn now and not before. Maybe it was worn at private events etc.

Official State visit to Vietnam.

Day 1.

"Sunday, 1st November 2009-Dinner(reception) at the Danish Embassy hosted by the Danish Ambassador to Vietnam in Hanoi."

Does anyone know whether the high collared sleeveless purple coloured dress CPss Mary is wearing is new and who the designer might be?

Any information would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers and Thank you,

This is Dazzling's link, and I do not recognise it, so I'd say that the odds of it being new are good.

Wonderful dress!! That kind of dresses really suits Mary, IMO.
I don´t like the shoes, though.

The shoes are indeed far too heavy for the dress. The dress itself may be pretty enough, but has the Asian-style kind of collar which really only works well when the hair is put up.

I like the dress, not the shoes.

I don't like the colour of the shoes, I think - from what I've seen - it doesn't suit well to the dresses colours. Black shoes would have looked better JMO, nice dress though.

I like this color purple on CP Mary of Denmark. The Mandarin collar, and Asian-inspired styling of the dress is a sensitive design touch for the visit to Vietnam. The shoe style seems fine to me. However IMO, the shoe colordoes not photograph as being the same as the dress color....

I love the dress. Can't see the shoes very well, but they seem ok. She looks very pretty!

Lovely dress with beautiful patterns. The shoes ruin the whole look, imo.

I like the style of the dress and the color, but I don't care for the print. I don't know why, but it just looks somewhat out of place on Mary. The shoes are definitely too heavy for this dress. A strappier sandal would have been nice.

I like the dress, the style and colour suit Mary, the print is unusual, however I think it suits the style dress.
Mary as usual looks elegant.

Pretty dress but I can't understand the choice of shoes, for me they don't work with the dress at all.

Lovely dress, I like the color and the print. The shoes - nice but not with that dress. Fantastic hairstyle too.

Im not liking the new dress, something is off and not sure if it is the color or the print. The dress also seems to be abit tight.
The shoes are lovely but not with the dress.

I like this new dress! I don't want to go into speculations because I do know that in the forum it's not allowed but I can see on several pics from the dinner that she has a little bump... Maybe it's just my eyes who see what I'm hoping for!lol

did she forget to check her feet when she went out the door? I don't understand with her glorious shoe collection why she would have ruined this gorgeous dress with shoes that don't match. Black, silver, nude, navy????

I'm sure that I've seen that print on a skirt in Hugo Boss recently so I'm quite sure it's a Hugo Boss dress.

I think the dress is nice and neat and looks good on Princess Mary!
