I think that Mary looks pregnant. With Christian she didn't even show, only in her stomach. This time she is showing on her face. I wonder if that means she is carrying a girl this time? I thought that I had read that somewhere that when a woman has a wider face during pregnancy it is a girl. That jacket does nothing for her. Too boxy.

She looks exactly when she was in Cristian Pregnancy, her belly shape is small, so, I think it would be another boy.

When Mary was pregnant with Christian she was the same size, at six months, as she is with this pregnancy. From what I remember, Mary's belly wasn't really big until her eighth month.

I am always amazed that if us "commoners" can figure out what looks best on her, what is her stylist doing for her !! The jacket should be with a dress.

Perhaps her stylist was off sick today??

I was just thinking the same thing after looking at the pics. Maybe the jacket would look better with a dress. Certainly not as good of a look from Mary today. But haven't we all had a few fashion misses from time to time.

I really liked her hair for this appearance. I think it looks classy. But I can hardly wait to see what she does with it for a gala!

Sidenote: I love the coat her lady in waiting was wearing. Beautiful!! Reminds me of a coat that Maxima wore earlier this month.

This jacket is similar to the one she wore just before her wedding - May, 5 2004 - the military parade in Mary's honour, in Copenhagen harbour...It was a different fabric and double breasted...but it was similar in the fact that it was a short, boxy jacket...and she wore it then with a skirt...When I saw it (the jacket she wore a few days ago) this is what I immediately thought of...

Can anyone find that outfit I am talking about...I am looking at a picture of it in a magazine, but I wouldn't know how to go about getting it online...help please?

As for her motivations for wearing it...I am always thinking of these...She is pregnant, she wants to be comfortable, maybe pants are both comfortable and slimming, and who knows what her plans were AFTER this event...So maybe she put on the black pants and black cotton stretch shirt with the idea that she would put that jacket on top for the event, take it of when she got home and put a coat/shirt dress (whatever) over the top to take Christian for a walk in the park or a sparkly tunic top for a special private lunch with Frederik? Just very versatile, easy, comfy, practical...

Actually, Mary is wearing what's in style: cropped jackets layered over pants. I think it looks fine. Maybe it's too "socialite" for her but I think she pulls it off.

I love what Mary is wearing! She looks very comfortable and happy.

Xeara, the jacket from the Danish Defence Force parade, a couple of days before her wedding, looks nothing like the one she wore to the Children's Aid. The DDF jacket had long sleeves with distinct cuffs, and overall the jacket was a boxy, straight fit.

The bell sleeve cropped A-lined shaped jacket with rounded exaggerated collar, worn at today's event, is very Burberry London, Stella McCartney, and Phillip Lim:

I see the look she was going for, but I don't believe it worked for her. Instead of wearing the tight black shirt, Mary should have opted for a loose fitting silk blouse instead with the tight black mens pant.

I think her wardrobe people do a very good job. She is pregnant and does have a belly. THe clothing she is wearing breaks up the line. If she didn't have the jacket on, which is rather loose at the top, you would see how her stomach is (don't get me wrong, I am not saying she is huge, by any stretch of the imagination). Before they announced her pregnacy, you could guess by the fact she started wearing those hip hugging belts - breaks up that line and the incessant putting the boquet in front of her stomach. Anyway, her clothing is chosen very carefully to disguise her growing stomach and make it appear to be much smaller than she is.

Good observation and welcome to the board, our_girl_Friday.

The way cropped jacket and pants is a very fashionable ensemble actually...and it's also practical. I think its fabulous....

thats true. ive realized that when she wears tight cloths its dark colors such as black but when shes in light colors its always loose things such as dresses with long coats over them.

Mary seems an older woman .......
I really don´t like this new haircut
Perhaps she wanted to seem stylish but I believe that she has been mistaken...

Well, I also think Mary looks a bit olde now: but in a POSITIVE way.
I don't know, but she looks .. mellower.. in a way it shows the development she has gone through. IMO her new hairdo suits her alot.

Maybe..but I can't imagine. ... Mary hasn't been criticized for her style (or whatever) in the last time..

Maybe she just wanted to look a bit more "serious" after all those "shopping" scandals.

Anyway, it's nice to see her out and working... (maybe Frederi could support his wife a bit more )
