I am not a big fan of either dress. Although the color and pattern of the second one was very interesting, I think that it would have made a better dress than jacket. Maybe these types of dresses are in style and I'm just missing it.

The color of Mary's first dress was gorgeous, but the dress was a bit matronly. I'm really just "meh" about the second outfit. I don't love it, but I don't think it's terrible. The ruby parue is a wonderful set. I thought Alexandra's dress for the January 1st Court was gorgeous, although I'm surprised she'd recycle her 2004 dress for the same occasion.

When Mary's event happens, on the fifth of this month, she'll go all out by shoving the housecoat to the back of her closet and break out the amazing dresses she's known for wearing. Or not.

Let's mix this discussion up a bit: I'll bet Mary will wear yet another housecoat, hair in a giant beehive do, simple make-up, and black shoes for her own kur. Anyone else think so?

The Queen and CP Mary, perfect candidates for the show "What NOT to wear..." My God what happened? I'm telling you, the style of the Queen is rubbing off on our Mary...horrible, horrible. Also, how tall is Mary's husband? He looks terribly short...

You know what. After looking at MUCH MUCH better pics of Mary at these events I have changed my opinion somewhat. The first dress was actually quite gorgeous. It was a bit tight and matronaly but very beautifull. Im still iffy on the second dress. Colors were horrible. Just isnt working out for me.

I have to agree. I've been browsing some pictures too and I think the first dress wasn't that horrible, though I still think the cut looks matronly on Mary. The color was gorgeous, though.
But the second dress... no I'll stick to my first impression... :(

Hopefully we don't get to see another of pollyemma's housecoats on Mary's own kur, I keep my hopes up high... Mary is a very fashionably lady!

Couldn't agree more!

But what was up with the hair styles? Esp. on the Jan. 1st event, it looked like Mary and Alexandra used the same hair stylist?!

You know, it really is strange that Princess Alexandra used the same dress for the same event two years in a row. How much do these dresses cost, anyway? Even in my modest family, for instance, the women would not wear the same dress to two family weddings in a row. If she had a different (lesser) character, I would guess that she is trying to make a point. But I'm a real believer in her character.

Her day clothes are also recycled to a strange degree. She has a beautiful figure, she really doesn't need terribly expensive clothes to look good or to look royal. I'm surprised and curious.

Mary's husband, I believe, is around 5'8" or 5'9". If anyone has his correct height please let us know.:)

It is obvious that Mary's husband is not 6ft or above like Joachim. The reason why Fred looks so short (from what I believe) may be due to his long torso. People with long torso's typically have very short legs; as a result he looks short.

I've read several times on this board and others that he's about 5'9 and that Mary is roughly 5'6-5'7...correct me if I'm wrong!

It is during the day and attendees have been advised to wear day suits.

[quote=Noelle9982]Well said fromEU!

Mary's job first and foremost is to act as a representative of one of the oldest royal families in the world, not to be a fashion icon. This dress wasn't worn to make a statement...it was worn because it was appropriate for the formality of the evening.

If I recall correctly, this event was held during the day, hence no tiaras.

You are right, I've wached the pic with the close view, the pattern blue & beige is wonderfull. Nevetheless the dress's cut (actually it's less a dress and more a very long coat..), it's very strong and graceless, without movement, it "kills" her grace.

I love both the dresses. The brown purple coat looks sometimes like leopard and sometimes acid, which both are fantastic and original. The blue one looks regal and perfectly suitable for a future queen.

We must keep in mind that it is cold in Denmark and who wants to wear a flimsy dress in freezing cold weather. When will Mary start wearing fur? That I am curious about.

It is not a leopard is much much better.
I've took this image from http://crownprincessmary.ipbhost.com...pic=3748&st=30, I'may not been allowed to do it, sorry???

Look at the pattern, isn't marvelous???? But the dress cut does not fit perfectly to her, it shows her fatter than she is, maybe the dress was cut before her pregnacy???? It seems tight near the belt

"You people don't seem to have any sence about what this occasion is. This event has nothing to do with being "wow" or being smart or fashionable. It is a formal reception for diplomats and ambasadors from different countries and cultures around the world to greet the Queen. The different diplomats show up in thier national dresses if they have any and the Royal family tries to show a little formality and regalness instead. Imagine showing too much skin or being too sexy when greeting an ambassadors from the middel east:) This is not a show for you."

And she could have done that without wearing the dresses she wore. The first was a lovely colour, the second just reminded me of the "Von Trapp" curtains from the Sound of Music. Moreover the dress she appears to be wearing underneath the coat seems quite lovely, It's a beautiful colour and the beadwork is very pretty. Of course you cannot see the entire dress so it is hard to judge, but it seems to be very nice. Other royals have demonstrated in the past how to look elegant yet formal, it's not that difficult.

Its actually the 3rd time Alex has worn the red dress to the New Year gala. I believe the first time was in 2000, then in 2004 and now 2005.
