That was a good one, Larzen - killed myself laughing!

By the way these "miniature portraits" are known as family orders and are not just any old picture stuck to your breast: they are given/awarded by the sovereign to female (as far as I know) members of his/her family (not sure if sovereign queens do the same???). I'm also not sure if it is every member of the (immediate) family or if they have to be worthy of it in some way but I think the former is true.

As for Mary's orders, should they not have been worn on the left and a brooch worn on the right? It seems to have been stuck on in a rush as it's dangling at an angle and it makes her look a bit like a Christmas tree. But I think it has been a good turnout for the Danish ladies and Sophus is justly proud!

I love the black jacket.
It looks very versatile, I can't wait to see it "dressed down".

No, Mary is wearing the orders exactly as protocol says she should wear them.
Danish orders on one side, foreign order on the other.

It does look a little bit funny but she can't help it.
I personally think that wearing orders on an evening dress always looks funny
no matter how you wear them.:)

Despite the orders and the colour of the dress Mary does display understated elegance in my eyes.
Not at all looking like a Christmas tree. (That was Letizia at the state visit of President Putin.:) )

I like Mary's dress much better now than when she wore it the first time with the ruby parure and the blue sash.
She looked overloaded at that time and
the colour of the rubies - a little bit into the pink - did not go well with the colour of the dress.
Also I did not like that particular shade of blue (sash) on that particular shade of red (dress).
I think all of Mary's outfits during this state visit were great, elegant and modern at the same time.

Alexandra's dress at the gala banquet was nice, nothing special but showing her really lovely figure and beautiful arms.
I did not like her shiny outfit yesterday, the shoes were totally wrong and the make-up simply horrible.
And I think her usual glow was missing at both events.

The queen: I think that is one of her best gala dresses.
Always loved it and she seems to love it too.
And she looked great in red yesterday.

I dont think Marys choker goes well with the jacket, it looks crowded.

With that kind of collar I’ve preferred Mary appears without that big necklace. Except with that necklace I think Mary dressed quiet nice (bit girly though). http://www.theroyalforums.com/forums/attachment.php?attachmentid=235495&d=1143797754
Except the blue eyeliner Alex's make up just looks natural http://www.theroyalforums.com/forums/attachment.php?attachmentid=235487&d=1143797670

Princess Mary always manages to look innocently radiant. I've never seen the queen actually wear such a vibrant red before. She looked great by the way.

Agree. It would have been better with no necklace and a pair of prominent earings. I like the dramatic neckline of the jacket and the choker ruined it. The headband look doesn't work for me. It's waaaaaaaaaay too casual. Plus, she's long past the age of wearing headband. She looked like a woman of mid-30s trying to look like a co-ed and it showed. The red gown was a blah the first time she wore it, and it's still a blah now. Plus, it doesn't flatter her figure at all.

I, for one, like Alexandra's white dress better than the blue gala gown. She has worn that gala gown many times before. It shows her curvy figure wonderfully but the design wasn't that interesting. The white dupioni dress was simple, sophisticated and fitting for the occasion. The aqua flower on the shoe was strange however.

i liked alexandra"s white dress. it was a bold fashion move. she took a risk but i think she pulled it off. i wonder if she feels more relaxed attending official functions when her ex is not around?

In my opinion, Crown Princess Mary's outfit with the lovely choker was very appropriate for this evening event - Bulgarian Return Arrangement at 8 pm on March 30, 2006.

Mary looks absolutely beautiful at this evening event! She looks so young and fresh! I really love the beading on the dress and the cut of the jacket! The headband is a wonderful touch and suits her so well! She looks so radiant and stunning!

Notice how the Crown Princely couple are matching? What a beautiful couple!

Amen

O my God! Alexandra Looks stuning. I love the way she takes of herself even when she is in her 40's. She lokks amazing and truly elegant. Mary to me she looked beaitful, but a little bit girly for my taste. Otherwise very elegant and with great poise.
