I think she looks gorgeous! There is no other crown princess that can wear a gala dress like Mary. She looks very regal and absolutely stunning!

The gown doesn´t grab me either. I think it´s because it´s awful when she raises her arms, and the arm pits and bulging arms look too muscular and spoil the feminity of the gown. It shows too much flesh for my liking. But those of you who like it, don´t get mad! It´s just my personal reaction to the gown.

Princess Mary arrives for gala ball
19:51 AEDT Wed Mar 2 2005

Australian-born Princess Mary greeted children and waved to well-wishers as she arrived for a Red Cross charity dinner in Sydney.

Denmark's Crown Princess Mary and her husband Crown Prince Frederik are guests of honour at the Red Cross 90th Anniversary Gala dinner, at Sydney's Westin Hotel.

Dressed in a pale pink silk halterneck top and floor-length layered midnight blue skirt, Princess Mary was presented with a bouquet of bright pink roses from a young girl waiting outside the hotel.

The couple posed for photos with the girl and waved to onlookers before heading inside.

Former prime ministers Gough Whitlam and Malcolm Fraser are among the high-profile attendees at the benefit gala to celebrate 90 years of the Australian Red Cross.

Singers Delta Goodrem, wearing a full-length yellow tea rose gown, and Olivia Newton-John, wearing a green chiffon gown, will perform to more than 900 people at the A-list dinner.

Earlier on Wednesday, Princess Mary was cheered by hundreds of waving, delighted children during an impromptu walk in Sydney.

The children had gathered across the road from an eastern suburbs women's shelter where she made a private visit.

Clutching flowers and dressed in a pink floral skirt, white top and white tailored jacket, Princess Mary walked over to the crowd, trailed by officials.

She spent 15 minutes chatting, shaking hands and accepting flowers from the schoolchildren lined up along a high wall.

"Thank you for coming to see me," she told children as she prepared to leave.

They replied with a chorus of "bye, Princess Mary" before she stepped into her chauffeured car and drove away.

Princess Mary's unscripted walk follows criticism from Danish media that she and Crown Prince Frederik have not been mingling with the locals during their Australian tour.

Thank you everyone for the photos. Mary looks stunning. I love everything about what she wore. The skirt is incredibly beautiful and the colour of the halter-neck suits her so well. I don't know about her hair though. I really like those earrings.

I agree! I can see how some might think this dress is pretty but I also didn't like how it showed her underarms. Too much skin! But maybe I'm just being prudish? ;-)

Thanks to everyone for the wonderful photos, information and comments. Frederik and Mary look very happy, content and in love!

Regarding the gala outfit: I'm less than wild about it. I do think that Mary's wedding earrings that she wore are just stunning.

Princess Mary confirmed a style queen:

2 MARCH 2005

There was no doubt who was the belle of the ball when Australia's favourite royal arrived for a gala dinner in Sydney. Princess Mary was greeted by a huge crowd of well-wishers when she made her entrance at a fundraising bash for the Australian Red Cross on Tuesday night.

And although there were plenty of elegant gowns to be seen on the night, it was the Danish royal who shone the brightest. Accompanied by her husband Crown Prince Frederik, the 33-year-old set flashbulbs blazing with a pink silk halterneck top and midnight-blue floor-length skirt.

It was a stroke of good luck that the little girl who presented her with flowers outside the venue seemed to share her impeccable taste. The youngster handed the VIP guest a bunch of bright pink roses that complemented her outfit perfectly. Also turning heads at the glitzy bash were singer Delta Goodrem, in a full-length yellow tea rose gown, and Olivia Newton-John, who opted for green chiffon.

Since they started their official visit on Sunday Mary and her husband have been welcomed by hordes of fans everywhere they have gone. And their popularity was further boosted when Frederik, who came a humble 23rd in a yacht race on Sunday, proved what a good sport he was by buying beers for all the other crews.

I like what mary wore in the gala dinner:the colours and the combinaison,but i find that the top is a bit daring and bold for a royal!


CP.Mary looked gorgeous as well!

Ok, after seeing a few more photos of the dress, I do think it is much nicer than I originally thought. I think that the pink looks lovely on her! (I originally thought the dress was white and black.) And I LOVE the photo with her holding the flowers!

From www.bt.dk (Translation summary please)

Mary tråde ud af det planlagte program for at gå rundt og hilse på de mere end 300 skolebørn, som havde stillet sig op i lange rækker for at få et glimt af prinsessen. Foto: Ernst van Norde

»Hygge hejsa«: For første gang under det officielle besøg i Australien gik Mary på sine tårnhøje stiletter ud af programmet, og i ti minutter lod hun chauffør og hele sit følge vente for at gå rundt og hilse på de mere end 300 skolebørn, som havde stillet sig op i lange rækker for at få et glimt af prinsessen.
