I agree Alexia looked horrible. I know, she is pregnant, but she is too fat. I can´t believe for an especial event, wore a borrow dress.

I wouldn´t call Alexia "fat". This maternity dress IMO is for women who are at least in their seventh or nineth month of pregnancy. It simply wasn´t necessary to wear it now already. It just makes her look more overweight than she really is right now in that stadium of pregnancy. Some press published photos of her with Cristina or her family a few weeks ago and there you can see that she isn´t "fat" at all. Since it´s her fourth child she shows her belly earlier than mothers who expect their first child. But still: This dress is for mothers who are far more advanced in the stadium of the pregnancy.

Stefanie, that doesn't go against you - in fact, I like your posting! But still: Alexia was an invited guest while we are just lookers-on. For me, the fact is interesting that she may have borrowed a dress from her cousin for the occassion - I like that! But there need not be judgment on that as we don't know the background. IMHO, of course.

Thank you so much for your pics and videos. I think Mary was really beautiful! I didn't like the dress but she doesn't need a pretty dress to make her glow. She was beautiful because she is beautiful and happy.

I too love the fact that Alexia wore a borrowed dress. It shows that behind it all the Royal Families are still just families supporting and aiding one another whether it be a borrowed dress or something a bit more serious.
While I agree the dress was not figure flattering, Alexia was lovely. My goodness, she's pregnant!

What a wonderful name the chose for the princess. I didn't expect Alexia to be godmother but it is good news. Happy to see her.

My opinion on yesterdays fashions:

Mary: Very appropriate outfit, and beautiful purple color. She looked very sweet, and whereas I think the outfit on January 21, took the attention a bit away from the Christian, this one was perfect. Isabella was the best accessory, and Mary looked more radiant and happy than ever.

Magrethe: Loved it ! Noone else would have been able to wear that, but it was a perfect outfit for Queen Magrethe. She looked fabolous.

Crown Princess Mette-Marit: Lovely coat and I really liked the headband she wore. It's nice to see her finally dressing for her age. She looked very summery.

Crown Princess Victoria: Borring. I like Victoria, but that hairstyle did nothing for her. And that jacket is something I could wear on casual friday with a pair of jeans. Cute skirt though. Hated the headpiece.

Mary's stylist Anja: LOVED the flower in her hair, but didn't care much for the dress.

Helle Redtz-Thott: That woman is always so elegant and regal looking. But nothing beats what she wore on January 21.

Princess Benedicte: Lovely hat, Lovely coat, Lovely pink color.

Princess Mathilde: The coat was very HER, very "Mathilde", pretty borring, but what I don't understand is why she wore that headband. It didn't match at all ! (Very happy to see her as a godmother though)

Princess Alexia: Hated what she wore. And what she had in her hair too. (But again, I was very happy to see her as godmother)

Caroline Hering: Yeah, she looked fantastic, but didn't like the fact that she wore grey.. Who wears grey to a christening on July 1?

Alexandra S-W-B: As usual, she was stunning (She was too at Chris' baptism). Can't decide if she looks 20ies or 30ies or whatever, but I love it !

Carina: What a beautiful dress. Carina looked amazing, and the hat went well with.

EXCELLENT post and just what I thought on everything too. I adored what she wore to Christian's christening though. I wonder if Mary will wear that headpiece to every christening !!! Just a thought..

I know that many often comment about how much Christian looks like a young Prince Henrik but after seeing Verde Esmeralda's new avatar on page 17 I couldn't help but see a strong resemblance to his mother. Maybe its his skin tones or the expression on his face or both. But I have seen a few pics of him in recent months that totally make me see that he really seems to resemble Mary more than I originally thought.

I think she will. She wore the headpiece to both Christians and Isabellas Christenings so with that in mind I'd expect her to wear it to the third one if there is one.

Bets on baby Bella boom


Princess Mary threw an Aussie-style pool party to celebrate the weekend christening of her Isabella.
Guests who attended the Fredensborg Palace Chapel in their Sunday best changed into togs for the post-baptism celebrations.
The casual luncheon spilled into a night-long party that finished some time after midnight.
Some of the cream of Danish society were photographed walking down the driveway carrying their bathers.

I'm sure that as with all new families Mary is keen to start traditions with hers and the headpeice that she wore at both Christenings (and perhaps more) will be something that she treasures. Traditions are great.

As crissCross1 said too- it is a beautiful tradition and the headpiece is stunning- being that it is cream it goes with most colours anyway- just to let you know i am NOT trying to rush them into another pregnancy just yet...

Wouldn't you have LOVED to have been a fly on the wall at that pool Party- how much fun would they have had...

It's true, that's such an Aussie thing to do Love it!

As for the 'gifts'...I say it's about time a new tiara made an appearance. Give us something to 'squeel' with excitement about.

Love the name Isabella and it's so cool that all her names are from her mother, maternal grandmother, paternal great-grandmother, paternal grandmother. She's such a cute baby!

Ooh! I thought that too! I'm so glad others did. I think the headpiece is beautiful.

I'm not a mum ... but I think that is so lovely. I love the idea of the dad giving the mum a 'reward' for the new bub ... I'm tearing up typing this ... such a gesture of love. Wow!

While she didn't choke up whiile saying her name, I did find one picture of Mary tearing up a little. IBL Bildbyrå | 0435 44 07 65
