Alex is one good example of how a lady in her 40s can be much much more attractive then a woman in her 20s.

She looks fantastic!!! :p

Yeah, she has worn that suit quite a few times! I am not sure about Mary's stylist but I think she needs some new outfits too. But I guess she's being extra careful with her money now that she is divorced.

I think Alexandra still gets an allowance from Joachim (and I think the government because she still does royal duties) so money shouldn't be too much of a priority.

I agree, though. THe suit's a bit too old-fashioned and (dare I say it?) ugly.

She may have recycle her outfits lots of times, but i think she has that business style, and i guess, for her, clothes are not top priority.
anyhow, lots of times we see her looking extra-beautiful & glowing.
like when she wore a turquoise dress to london, at hc andersen celebration, or even her recent visit to south africa.
she looks lovely as who she is..

there's so little pics from this trip this year.....

although i'm a big fan of princess alexandra...i agree that sometimes....she needs to throw out some of the old clothing and buy some more new ones!

but...the dress she wore in london, russia, the HC anderson celebration, at the queen ingrid's memorial concert.....she just looked fantastic!

On the flip side, it's nice to see her wearing outfits more than once. It tells people that she's not lavishly spending money left and right on clothes. To me, that's endearing.

Plus, most of her wardrobe ensembles aren't dated so she can wear them without looking dowdy or old-fashioned.

Alexandra seems to know quiet well about how to choose a dress she has to wear for events (suit for place and time), I even don't think that she needs much help from her stylist. She seems to suit well in kind of bussiness style dress, specialy for that kind of event and when China' weather (my guess) is cold in this month. She dressed in different style when she was in south Africa and south Asia which has different climate. For me she always looks gorgeous (perhaps) because of I more focus on to what she does (bussy princess). Thanks for she is not kind of princess who put her interest most in clothes and make up.

How do we know that she knows quite well how to dress? maybe it is all the good work of her stylist instead.

I read about one of her ex school teacher mention this. Yes we have to look at her photos and what people (who knows her) have said about her before she marry Joachim and then have special stylist. If my memory serve me well you can find it in her unofficial website belongs to lote Harldrup there are lots info about her.

In the 10 years or so that Alexandra has been a royal the Danish media has not mentioned anything about her having an official stylist, they undoubtedly would have found out and reported it if she did. Like all royals she will have someone to do her hair and make-up for balls and other formal occasions, perhaps they may have given her some tips (I don't know), but I think it's basically Alexandra herself who decides what clothes she wears.

If you are a princess that is. Not if you have to work two jobs and take care of kids, and clean the house, and do the laundry, etc, etc...then a 20 year old looks 20 years better!!!!!

Princess Alex really looks beautiful and glowing in her appearances in China. She is not only intelligent but a great representative for Denmark.
