I think it's the hat. It seems too casual to be worn with a jacket and skirt that is made of a more formal looking material, for lack of a better word.

If anybody wants to buy the jacket that Mary wore to the Fight against Cancer event, you can find it here:

She just did the same mistake or she thinks those mix&match of dress' cut line; materials difference and also combination of the colour is a harmonies one. After http://theroyalforums.com/forums/attachment.php?attachmentid=176382 and then http://www.theroyalforums.com/forums/attachment.php?attachmentid=181301


Just wonder, where is her fashion advisor, or it might their idea to mix the dress like that...I think she should find another fashion advisor :o. But if Mary likes it, it just fine for her:).

I think she is doing a wonderful job. Her dressing is never boring and she looked great and radiant. I like the fourth picture where she went to shake hands with the woman of 4 kids who is suffering from skin cancer.

The image that Mary is only interested in fashion was brought on by Mary herself. She started her royal life by modelling (not only appearing, but actually posing like professional models) too often on magazine covers. It left many with the impression she was fixated with fashion, and not interested in anything else.
If she had started off by being seen more often with other projects (mental health etc), she wouldn´t have invited this image. She made that choice (and the royal advisors perhaps failed to advise against it), and even appeared with Fred in some pics. This gives people who value charity work the impression that the crown princely couple are rather unserious; more into hip and fashionable things.

I also strongly believe that being a protector of something does not mean that you are bound to enjoy things produced by them only. For example, would it be reasonable for Alex to only enjoy music produced by the DR Girls choir (not sure what it's called)? Of course not! But back to Mary - look at what she wears and you will see that a majority of it will be unrecognisable to us (for now) and you know why? Probably because we can't find it in the websites by international designers... they are probably by unknown Danish designers, which brings us full circle to Mary and her connection with CIFF: to help make Danish fashion known to the rest of the world.
that's a fallacy. your example can be compared in the same level if it involved wearing the same type of clothes all the time. that's obviously impossible. besides, the fact of listening to music needs to be much more varied or people may become crazy. letizia for example just used 2 or 3 clothes and accesories from international designers and she normally uses spanish ones, so that proves it's not impossible. however, the list with mary is much longer and what was even more was the fact that she posed for a danish magazine to promote danish fashion and had clothes from international designers on...

i really agree with what xandra and marengo said. it couldn't have been better said.

The amazing fact is that I have not seen anybody go to as many fashion shows as Mary who is not in the business. Buyers for department stores, magazine editors with a deadline for an article all have a job to do. They're in the business of translating the catwalk into something that people may want to buy. Even actors and actresses are looking for a new look to supplant the old one because they need to reinvent themselves all the time. They go a lot because they have a job to do. But Mary's frequent attendances are very unusual. Royals don't have to change their looks like actresses do or as frequently.

To be charitable, she may be teaching herself about high fashion; she didn't get much exposure to it before meeting the CP and looking nice is part of the job. I just think a good image consultant could do the job better.

Mary doesn't constantly attend fashion shows. For the past week or so we have seen her attend many, but that is because their is a Fashion Week or something along those lines going on now in Denmark now. We saw Mary do the same thing last year around this time. It was one of her first public engagements. Also since she is a patron of Danish fashion (not sure of the technical term of her patronage), Mary most likley should attend fashion shows when possible in Denmark, and most likely will.

Now I am not saying that Mary doesn't enjoy attending the shows. She probably does a great deal. Let's be honest. Mary does seem to be interested in clothing. I will also go as far to say as some that since Mary has become a Princess she has bought more than her share of clothing and had her share of photo shoots. Clearly taking fashion under her patronage was a no brainer for her.

Half a million dollars for two danishes

AUSTRALIA'S fascination with Princess Mary and her fairytale marriage to the future king of Denmark has come at a right royal cost to taxpayers.

Almost $500,000 has been forked out for the glamour couple since they tied the knot last year.....

Good grief and they're not even «their» royals! Diplomacy can be expensive.

I am so sorry, but its just getting a tad bit repetitive. Mary attends these shows because she's the patron of CIFF. Do we really have to keep saying it? CIFF stands for (I think) Copenhagen Inernational Fashion Fair. CIFF holds an exhibition twice a year... I believe it's the largest fashion exhibition in the northern hemishpere (I forget or don't know if I remember that correctly or what)... Mary attends these fashion shows because its during the biannual exhibition.

It was mentioned that the attendance of those who go to these shows because "they have a job to do" is justified. Well then there you go! Mary is patron for CIFF..... she goes to the CIFF exhibitions because it is one of her duties as a Crown Princess.

Hopefully people will keep that in mind? Don't let the fact that it is glamorous and enviable stop you from realizing that (i) it is part of her job to attend CIFF events, and (ii) even though it is fashion, there are real people behind the scenes who Mary is helping (fashion designers, those in textiles, retail, the models etc... heck, even the tourism industry, which my research shows, is Denmark's fourth largest industry .... hehe (though I could be relying on old documents! lol... I can never seem to get Denmark's fourth largest industry right:p )....

I agree that it was a bad decision to start with a magazine cover. I didn't like that at all.
And it created an image which is hard to get rid off.
Because some people seem to be unable to get over their first impressions
and don't take the trouble to inform themselves better.

Mary attended a lot of functions which had nothing to do with fashion.
She is patron of 18 organisations, only two of them are connected with fashion,
the main focus is put on social and health issues (e.g. The Heart Association, The BrainInjury Association, 2 Mental Health organizations, The Kidney Association, The Rare Disorders Association, WHO ...)
She had unofficial working meetings with all of them. For example a meeting with WHO on August, 8th.

As far as charity work is concerned she has actually done more than any of the other new crownprincesses has
in the first 15 months after her marriage.

On Tuesday she attended the opening of a new cancer councelling. The pics have been posted her.
I wonder why there haven't been just as many comments on that event as on the fashion event.
Perhaps some of the messageboard-posters are just too superficial?:)

BWUHAHAHAHA i absolutely love this thread everyone is so opinionated and passionate ^___^...but oh dear what can you do you either like her or you don't...i think it's absolutely silly that people don't like her even though they don't even know her but eh - that's their problem

anyhow, i hated what she wore in her last public outing...the hat was ewww...but i guess being pregnant doesn't really give her many dressing options...hey skin is still flawless - wahhh i've seen pregnant woman who's skin kinda went strange... blotchy or somthing...

A driving offence gets Crown Princess Mary's father in trouble with the law Crown Princess Mary's father, John D. Donaldson, came into a different kind of contact with the Danish police on Tuesday than he is used to, daily newspaper metroXpress reported.

On his way home from a reception at the University of Aarhus, the mathematics professor got stuck in a traffic jam caused by a 15,000-runner relay at Marselisborg.

Too impatient to wait for the runners to pass, Donaldson made a U-turn across an unbroken white line in the road in his royal blue Mitsubishi SUV.

Danish royal visit cost $350,000

Crown Princess Mary's visit home to Australia in March cost taxpayers almost $350,000, new figures show.

The federal government paid more than $115,000 on travel for the former Tasmanian real estate agent and her husband, Crown Prince Frederik of Denmark, during the 13-day trip in February and March this year.

Accommodation for the royal couple and their bodyguards - also provided by the Australian government - cost more than $62,000.
