Bender did a terrible job on her (first) wedding dress (the one she wore walking down the isle with Joachim). Especially considering the fact he also designed the gorgeous and fitting wedding dress of Alex's then-mom-in-law Margarethe. Bender gave a heavy frumpy look to a woman who couldn't be more 'petite' if she tried!

Who by the way designed her wedding dress for her 'do with Martin? I don't recall it was Bender..

LOL I see what you mean and in fact, this is one of the many gala dresses worn by Alexandra where I think...it's an ok choice but somehow, somehow it could have been a whole lot better.

I.e. with this particular dress, the colors indeed are gorgeous but somehow there's something about the pattern (and the overall design) that makes it, well, not 'just right' but 'just not right'..can't put my finger on the 'why' aspect of it here, just that I know that Alexandra has had a lot of those instances where I have the same reaction.

Is she known for making 'good choices' regarding clothing? Sorry I really haven't been following her throughout the years..

She's like many women despite her title. Like every woman in the world, we have a fashion misses from time to time and vice versa.

Henrik Hviid - a danish designer who has designed a lot of her gala dresses... (and some of Mary's too...)

I searched for him - no wonder I couldn't find anything - it was just princessalexandradk.info which told me about her using him. Thanks for the info!

From isifa:
Fotobanka isifa image service - an outfit she wore at the christening of Josephine Fleming - I love her dress, but I'm not so sure about the shoes. But then again, while I tend to like her clothes, I normally hate her shoes. What do you think? On average, are her shoes nice or horrible?

(From Hello!)
Her outfit from the 10th August - I'm glad she actually didn't wear a shade of black or grey, as she seems to be doing recently, but I still wish she'd worn something more vibrant - colours like red suit her.

As a younger Princess, I think she was known for her short skirts and her outfits were characterised by vibrant colours. However, they were (in my opinion), full of horrible huge buttons.

According to The Unofficial Her Highness Princess Alexandra of Denmark Countess of Frederiksborg Website, her hair was 'a hit at the hairdressers - they showed it on TV" Apparently, her '...style of clothes became a hit..."

You can see more of her clothes during the first couple of years here - The Princess From Hong Kong.


In my opinion, she's never really worn extravagant hats - she used to wear a lot like these:

She normally has quite short hair:

http://www.princessalexandradk.info/...202002%20e.jpg (I hate this one, she looks more like Anna Wintour than a Princess)
http://www.princessalexandradk.info/...40%20years.jpg

Her formal dresses were originally stereotypically 'princess' - which I liked, as she didn't look like a hollywood starlet (not that she does now, either).
My favourite are the orange, purple and red ones (although I don't like her hair on the purple one):

http://www.princessalexandradk.info/003agul.jpg
http://www.princessalexandradk.info/...003%202003.jpg

I hope that that sums up her fashion - I can't really say whether she makes good choices, as some people might think they're bad on the basis of short skirts, or bright colours - we'd all have our own opinions on her style.

I always found Alexandra very stylish with great shoes & hats. Some of her formal wear I felt was a little fussy, but she was always in bright colors and looked great. Lately she seems to have lost her style....boring colors, and her hair just pulled into a clip. Almost like she doesn't care anymore.

My thoughts exactly especially the hair pulled up in a clip.

I agree with regards to her style lately and the hairstlye is really aging as well. One can only think that she feels some sense of 'liberation' and is acting on it.

You could be right. I would think she would go a little more to the wild side, not dull and conservative! Still I trhink she could fix her hair.

I agree - she looks great in bright colours, especially pink.

I do like this outfit, it's probably my favourite of the ones she has worn this month - she finally wore something in a bright colour.

She should stick with bright colors. They look so nice against her hair and skin.

Absolutely, and it also makes her outfit look less dowdy and boring.
