The dress is very becoming to her, although the buttons are a puzzle. Why are they there around her knees?

I love it better when she wore it with the black fur
in 2006:

I agree that she looks lovely and regal and sophisticate! But don't you think that she also looks OLDER when we look at old photos the last times she wore the same dress?
Marie looks so young and fresh comparing to Mary. Please be assured that I don't mean that Mary is less beautiful, on the contrary, she sometimes looks better!
I had the same feeling when I saw Mary and Alexandra when Mary first married into the DRF.

Well...we all get older and we all mature! Who of us look exactly the same as 5-6 years ago? What I see when I look at CP Mary is that she has matured and become more confident in her role...the confidence was not there at the beginning and she was inexperienced as well - she had a lot to learn! A few years ago...no one would have said that CP Mary was ready to be a future queen. 5-6 years later and now there is no doubt that she is capable of handling her future role as Queen Consort, to the point now where she and CP Frederik are the couple in the DRF who are more and more in the forefront and are taking on more official duties.

Let's compare Princess Marie with her earlier photos after she's had 1-2 more children and as many years in the DRF that CP Mary has now, then we shall see! But even now, Princess Marie is also maturing and becoming more confident in her role as a member of the DRF. She's a wife, mother and becoming more active as a princess - all life events that mature a person.

Very philosophical and well said, Terri Terri!
Totally agree with you.

They're not buttons. Just embellishments. The gown is from Prada Fall 2004 Ready-to-wear collection and that season, Miuccia Prada used a lot of embellishments in her designs.

Princess Mary's beige ombre dress with beaded crystal collar is also from the same collection:

She also has several other pieces from this collection such as
skirt with crystals

beige coat with crystals Prada Fall 2004 Ready-to-Wear Collection Slideshow on Style.com
the pink tromp l'oeil dress
Prada Fall 2004 Ready-to-Wear Collection Slideshow on Style.com

I'm sure there are others but I can't think of them off-hand.

This velvet dress has always been one of my favorite evening gowns, with or without the buttons. I'm so glad Mary recycled it! As usual, she looked stunning, but...her hairstyle was...disappointing...unflattering...peculiar.

I agree,she looks regal, but better without these embellishments,like bottoms, imo

I adore this dress and the fur compliments the dress nicely.

Jan 30, 2010 - Mary attending an event with Frederik. Mary dressed in black pants with a beige top and a beige sweater with an elastic waist detailing.

The look is very pretty, love the combination of the top with the sweater which I love the detailing which looks like a belt. The pants fit well and are at a nice length IMO.
Arriving, Mary wore a beige coat over her outfit.
Hair looked really neat and different than the past few events, make up looked very fresh.

Like the way she looked - the top part fits well and the pants seem well fitted too.
The only thing I am not sure in is the coat - looks big.

The sweater is Ferretti - I like Mary's look but make up is VERY heavy

Sorry but Fred looks like he did some serious boozing the night before.

I dont know if the coat is new, but I have not seen it before. At least, not that I recall.

I do like last nights outfit, and I really loved her hair. What I liked in the top was that it was one colour, and so that forced the interest to be generated in its texture.
