Even though I do prefer the original version,I thought she looked great! I love the color and the jewels.
Pretty gown, such a rich color. Mary looks so regal esp. with all of those jewels.

That is a very stunning gown. Simple enough to allow the addition of all the fancy jewels. Mary looks fabulous. Here are some more pictures.

Well when you have one of the most beautiful ruby tiaras in Europe, what other color could be more perfect for a winter royal celebration than rich, red, velvet? I love the belt with the jeweled synch on the center, great length on the train too, the top shows her beautiful neckline too.

In some pictures, Mary's gown looks ruby red and in others it looks a deep purple, but the style, color and velvet give her the look of a medieval princess. And I see Joachim is without Marie who is very close to her due date, I understand.

Thank you for the pictures, Daria.

I'm glad you liked the pictures . I agree with your assessment of the dress. When I looked at it, I thought the neckline especially had the look that was very reminiscent of the Tudor period. Simply stunning.

That is a beautiful look as well with some differences, and I like how both styles look on Mary. The color, material and sweeping train are just lovely.

Both dresses are quite lovely. Hard to choose which one I like better.

I think its the same dress too - here a few close ups

I have to say I like this version much better than the first one:
http://www.seegerpress-online.de/top...ER00173119.jpg
where I found the neckline far too low and the dress itself a bit frumpy.

The new version is very clean cut and classic, perfect for me, what I dont like is the overthetop-fake hairpiece the brooch in the belt area - too much.

I love the Danish Royal Family they look so regal, beautiful gowns and jewels and the men look like they just stepped out of a fairytale. Yet they can be so down to earth and normal. I love following them

You'll have a hard time convincing med that the hairpiece is fake - no way do I belieive it is not real gems, probably from the reworking of the tiara when it seems that the top piece(s) was taken out and the rest made more dense to accommodate Mary's smaller headsize.
I agree about the neckline, not least because it does not allow Mary to wear the grand necklace that goes with the parure - and it is a bit heavy with the chain of the order of the elephant (and I am aware that these New years cours are not about being esthically beautiful or even fashionable - it's about bringing all the heavy artillery out, jewel-wise, but still...).

I'll eat my hat if there isnt a fake part in the hair!

Regarding the jewel pieces, I've asked the question in the jewellery thread if the parure was shortened and the "leftovers" were used for the hair.

If so, to me it looks great. I always found the ruby parure close to being over the top, too much, but this combination looks so much better, I love the jewellery hairpieces (loved them at Charlene of Monaco on her wedding day too) and the smaller ruby parure.

I believe its the same dress worn during the pregnancy with the top part altered.

Bon appetite then - I can't prove that they are all real, it's just my gut feeling.

I saw your question in the jewellery thread; I have been looking for the first discussion on the reworked Danish ruby parure in the Jewels of the world board but didn't find it. Here is a link to a discussion mid-December about the parure and the changes to it - Royal Jewels of the World Message Board: Photos Ruby Parure (Denmark) - first 2 times Mary wore it

I like the hair piece as well. It gives the whole set added versatility. The long earrings may e.g. be showcased better if the hair piece is somewhat smaller than the tiara.

I am almost persuaded that they are two totally different dresses. The neckline on the original was designed to carry the ruby necklace and this one wouldn't fit a choker let alone a piece of serious jewellery.

In point of fact, that is what I liked best, her hairstyle, her new hair pins and fabulous up do. The pearls looked altogether too dreary for words. Mary needs to remember the old adage, "Just because you can doesn't mean you should!"
