I think the outfit is a dress from this morning. It is by Danish Designer Malene Birger. I don't think it's inappropriate, but doesn't fit Mary's personality. But we all have to wear something different from time to time. If it were on Maxima no one would bat an eyelash. But it was a good choice in promoting a Danish designers new collection.

She looked incredible...I LOVE IT! A perfect combination and something I, myself, would wear without changing a single thing. That blouse is simply gorgeous and the skirt...

Exactly my thought. Not just too heavy. It's too masculine for such a feminine outfit. The belt would be great for a daytime outfit, not on an evening outfit.

Agree. There are way too much going on. The black ruffles on the blouse, the belt and the crazy patterns on the skirt.

I just saw a short news clip from the exhibition F&M were at; the outfit looked good in live pictures.

Sniemann, thank you for your first-hand reports - it is great that you are able to follow them this closely.

... To make my day, Mary now has to wear her gorgeous silver jewellery from Georg Jensen to an evening event!

I love, love, LOVE that skirt! And the belt fits in beautifully with the skirt. Not to keen on the blouse though, it looks a little odd - probably would have been better as the centre point of the outfit, with black pants/skirt.

Here are some more pics from the IKON exhibition - Sept 19th:

Thanks JessRules!

I'm in two (or more even) minds about this outfit - when I look at the skirt itself, I hate it, its hideous! But I love the outfit as a whole (surprising myself truth be told). And I agree that it would fit in on Sex and the City perfectly. Nor is it conventional princess to me - that would be one of her many beautiful coats. But I still think it is perfectly appropriate.
Confused yet?

Oh I want that blouse!!!

I leave for Europe tomorrow, and whilst I shall be gone only a week and hadn't planned on allowing myself time for a "shop", Mary has inspired me to make the most of my contacts and see what I can obtain:w00t2:

I happen to like the outfit and I am normally one that doesn't care for those more modern type patterns. The ruffled edge on the collar echoes the pattern in the skirt, and keeps Mary's face from being washed out by the white blouse. The belt and the blouse keep the skirt being being too overpowering. All in all I think it fits well together.

Some more pictures from Day 1 activities at this link

And I love this pic

And day two's outfit is not a blouse and a skirt - it's a dress! So all our grand plans to stick the blouse with a pair of pants or a skirt have just gone down the toilet! The dress is a Malene Birger creation, from the Spring 2008 collection

Like me!I don't know what to say. Maybe if we saw that outfit in other person I will not like it, but Mary is always fantastic. She does like Malene Birger very mucht! But I think this outfit (someone has said it is a dress) doens't fit her personallity at all in my opinion, but I'am glad she take the initiative tu try something different, something very trendy and somehting that is not even on sale because it is a srping summer 2008!!! Gohs she is so lucky to ahve this opportunity, she is creatting fashion

I think the combination of the skirt and the blouse doesn't really "work"...
I can imagine that the blouse combined with a simple black skirt (or simple black trousers ) would look really elegant.
The same goes for the skirt: it would look better with a simple top...
but the combination is just a bit too much..
I love her shoes.

Edit:

I should read earlier posts before I reply..
Okay, it's a dress... all my advices have been gone with the wind.

wow! i'm super impressed. i love the blouse and the skirt she wore today, she looks really trendy! in other situations, i wouldn't approve (perhaps a bit too much for a princess) but considering she is trying to show what's danish design like, i think it's okay. i'd give her a 9/10, just because of the fact that, although they are all lovely clothes (skirt, blouse and shoes)- they are a little bit too much when used together.

I totally agree about if it were a blouse and skirt. If it's a dress, let's just hope that we don't see this one again! Not at all a winner in my book! There's just tooooooo much going on with the ruffled shirt and the patterned skirt. Although, her make up was flawless and beautiful as usual!

First day, was great, loved the both outfits.Mary & Fred looked worn out, could be due to the long flight and adjusting timings.
Day two, well when i first sew the outfit worn ny Mary i was what was she thinking, but looking at it again, its a pretty outfit, nice skirt & blouse but not put together. Mary that day on her solo visit didnt look, happy, intrested, she looked like she was miles away but later the day when Fred & Mary were out together she looked really happy. Finally we get to see more outings of the together.
Thanks for the pictures everyone

This is getting on my nerves. Mary looks good in her clothes. But she tries so hard being fascinating, having that " I am so beautiful and important" glance around her. I don't like that very much. I like people more natural and down to earth- even if they are princesss. She almost seems to have the same perfectionism attitude like Victoria Beckham. And I guess the two are of a quite similar kind. Except for Mary wearing more conservative clothes.Sorry guys but this is showbiz not royalty...

What a weird thing to say that two people you don't know are of the same kind santacruz. Even if you are a devoted follower of Victoria Beckham I doubt that you know CP Mary.
Looking interested in what is going on around you - which in this connection is part of the 'job description' - is far away from having that glance about you which you say.

I have to take issue with this statement. CP Mary is about as much like Victoria Beckham as I am. It's just my opinion but I really think she is down to earth and natural. I would even go so far as to hazard a guess that there is still some Australian there (albeit a little buried). Don't forget, we Aussies invented the phrase "tall poppy syndrome". We don't suffer "airs and graces" easily and I think she has worked hard to maintain a sense of normality and naturalness in her new role.

She doesn't have to try to be fascinating - she is.
