Many thanks for the pics. The gown is not what you would call a grand dress. But perfectly suitable for the occasion.
The colouful lady in traditional dress I would guess to be from Bolivia. Or is she from Greenland perhaps.

The dress is all right. I do not like the collar embellishment. Seams on the dress seem not to be properly pressed. The hairstyle is awkward. The overall look is so so.

Love this new dark blue dress. It's simple, timeless and very elegant. Matched with the white gloves this looks great! I liked how simple her hair was styled and her make up was quite nice.

She looks great! It's simple, classic, a great color, and I love the neckline.

This is quite an unusual gown for Mary to wear, but she is following the Queen's line in something more austere and straightforward for a day event (Margarethe wears the same gown each year as if it is a uniform for this particular event).
The cut is simple and elegant, but look closely and the unusual folded hem-line gives it an almost Japanese-style feel, whilst the sparkling neck-line adds a touch of the 1960s style of formal wear. The deep blue colour is perfect for the event, formal and sombre and giving a nod to Margrethe's choice of colour.

The waist reminds me of Crown Princess Victoria's wedding gown. Navy blue seems to be the colour for this event.

I wasn't that impressed the first few pics I saw but when she stands still it hangs beautifully.

Lovely dress, looks well fitted with the wide set in waist and pretty modest scoop neckline and the crossed over skirt gives interest. With her hairdo it looks very 60s to me. Elegant, warm and confortable. Love the gloves too, why no gloves on New Year's Day?

The first New Year Court was an evening event where tiaras were worn. Today's event was a daytime reception which is, I believe, the reason for the gloves today.

The more pics I too liked it a little better. I would have not done that collar thing.

I love it! The perfect gown to complement Frederik's uniform. They look very fine together. It's also a gown that can have unique accessories to change the look. All-in-all, a wise, judicious purchase, as the saying goes.

I notice in the second picture from above, Mary shook hand without glove while the man took her hand with glove. Any explanation on this custom/protocol? Thanks.

Mary has pulled a stunner. Absolutely perfect for the occasion and as many have pointed out, it works well with Frederik's uniform (and his smile).

Jack, you have really nailed the look Mary has achieved. I went back and looked at all the shots and I have to agree with you, especially about the touch of 1960's style.

I have to admit that, as with many of you, my first impression was definitely not a good one. IMO the first shots I saw looked dreadful and I was going wha.....t? But thankfully the next lot of snaps showed a very elegant and stylish Court Dress.

I even loved the semi-formal hairstyle she had and thought that she had taken her lead from Queen Margrethe who sported her normal "working" hairstyle. Mary looked great with the hairstyle she chose, not a professional updo, but one that suited the gown and the occasion.

Frederik and Mary attended today the last New Year's Court. Mary recycled her New Year's gown from 2010. Rosa tulle skirt and dark brown short jacket. Was hoping she would recycled this outfit this year. Love it, very princess-ly. Lovely.

I like the added belt. It really helps complete the outfit, I think, plus with the updo. Her 2010 look was missing something and I didn't like her hair being down. 2013 was better, but this is the best, I think.

It bugs me that her sash is inside her jacket. I know it's attached to the bodice of her dress but it just doesn't look right with just the tail of it showing. I'd prefer it if she had the sash showing on the outside of her jacket and perhaps going under the belt jacket. I think it would give it a more finished look.

Going under the belt might have looked nice and had a finished look, but under the jacket, all looked very neat and tidy.

I can only think of two possibilities: either they tried the sash on the outside and it didn't look right or Mary intended to (or even did) take her jacket off during the event.
