I don't agree with you here . Even though I've always wondered why so many people find Mary so BEAUTIFUL (imo she's not beautiful, just pretty sometimes), I have to say that she is naturally ELEGANT . Some of the other princesses that I find far more BEAUTIFUL than Mary would though not be as elegant, even if they wear the same clothes . Mary has just something special in her manners that just make her look more elegant than the others ...
By the way, I'm in a good mood for sure : I've never made such a positive comment on Mary ...

You've never seen Jackie or Audrey Hepburn in a not so elegant way because both ladies came from a high society background. Jackie was a Bouvier, a family who belonged since the 1800s to the top ranks of American society. Jackie's grandfather, Major John Vernou Bouvier jr., wrote a book in which he claimed to descend from the French nobility who fled to the US because of the French revolution. Jackie is said to have been enormously proud of her noble heritage and tried always to appear the perfect (noble) lady.

Audrey Hepburn in fact was a noble, her father was a British banker, related to the British nobility, while her mother was a Baroness Van Heemstra, related to the Orange-Nassaus. Her aunt was lady-in-waiting and friend of queen Wilhelmina. Audrey grew up on her mother's family's estate close to Arnheim where her aunt helped with her education and upbringing as a perfect lady.

It's not "natural" class these two ladies possessed but they were born with the right talents and groomed to perfection. In their time ladies from that background never ever appeared in public without being turned out perfectly. It's quite unfair to compare these high society ladies with their privileged upbringing with middle class girl Mary Donaldson who had to invest in her own grooming and who did it to perfection, IMHO. Plus, I don't believe in your statement about Jackie being elegant even in vulgar slippers because I have yet to see a picture of her committing such a faux pas.

But here's a picture of young Jackie that I find... hmm... not so elegant:

before anyone freaks out at the offensive symbol on her dress. the native americans used it way before hitler. i have seen it on different items in museums and asked about it. be assured it does not represent what 20th century people associate it with/(death and hatred)
freaked me out for a minute, so i thought i should explain.

Jackie Kennedy and Audrey Hepburn are not the topic of this thread, if you want to discuss them, Celebrity Chit Chat is the forum for you. Please get back on topic.

Thank you,

I don't like what she wears. She has nice clothes, but she needs someone to tell her how to match them. She looks okay, never too elegant, just okay. IMO of course.

"Regent the 34-year-old commoner-born woman will never be. That is a job for the consort, Frederik, born to take over for his mother, Queen Margrethe."


I am quite shocked by the remarks made by the Daily Telegraph.
CP Mary knows that she will only be a queen consort and not the reigning queen.

Those remarks were not made by the Daily Telegraph, they were only published by them. The paragraph you posted is an extract taken from Ekstra Bladet

Really? Perhaps I have made a mistake then. I thought it was a continuation of the extract taken from Ekstra Bladet. If I have made a mistake then I retract my comment.

Looks like the trip to Verbier did her some good---she looks refreshed and less tired.
Her hair is growing back fast i think...

I am so glad she recycled that coat! I loved it from when she was pregnant with Christian, and I love it now. And her hair looks great- it's really been growing on me.

This is just a short comment...iam not a fan of black stockings, albeit they suit the winter weather.I think thecoat would come off better with clear stocking..besides, she has such nice legs, clear stockings show them off better.
But no matter, she looks so puuuuuuuurty

I totally agree with you. I don't particularly like opaque stockings on anyone, but after seeing pictures from the fashion shows this past week, I am realizing that they are in fashion right now. Hopefully this trend won't last long.

That's what I was thinking when I saw today's pics. I still can't get over how the haircut has changed her face shape too. But I've always heard hair grows faster when one is pregnant.

She looks lovely and that was what I thought when I first saw her new haircut and it seem to change the shape of her face!!

But why? It's a gorgeous coat, and it really is quite becoming to her.

Classic clothes never go out of style! IMHO
