Why can't she wear a new gown to New Years, or at least a gown of a different color?
I actually quite liked Margrethe's lime green dress. Whilst the colour did look a little too bright in some places, I thought she looked elegant and regal in it. I think the fur cape helped though - I probably would've liked it less if she had worn it without the cape.

I don't think I have a favourite New Year's Court gown from Margrethe, but I also really liked her grey gown. I didn't particularly like her peach/orange gown she wore in 2008, as I thought it was a bit of an overload, but then again I'm also not the biggest fan of that colour in general.

I've since seen some HQ close-ups of the forest green lace gown and it looks better than I first thought - there is actually plenty of satin visible under the lace and this sets it off quite nicely.
Green or blue lace is, I think, a difficult thing to get right and the actual shade has to be right.

I think she looks fantastic with this dress and the fur was a nice addition.

Yes the colour of the satin under the lace is perfect and Margethe's gown is a wonderfully regal statement gown. Sadly her two daughters-in-law missed the boat and went a little too understated and not quite so regal.

Perhaps she can show them her collection and enliven the "show" so to speak because it is ridiculous comparing three women's gowns and deportment and the having the Queen, who could be forgiven if she lightened the effect due to her age, winning by a country mile. Okay, so she wore flat boots when she had a medical reason but my dear "Princesses", not only did she leave you in her dust, you are covered in it.

We should all be waxing lyrical about how majestic the three royal ladies are and how the youngsters have taken their lead from Queen Margrethe. But we aren't and they haven't.

psst! Mary, Marie, check out Crown Princess Victoria's latest Nobel gown because I think she was channeling Queen Margrethe.

We can agree to disagree about lime green. Peach/ orange? Oh, this I gotta see please!

oops, I always forget about that. It is rather annoying, sorry! It is free to sign up to pinterest though and you don't have to post if you don't want to.

I will try to remember that in the future though. Sorry again!

As for the dress, I rather like it with the other top she's worn: The Royal Watcher

yeah, the top is too much with the skirt. The lace top really helps balance it out, I think. Plus it's not 100% of peach screaming at you. lol

Hey, I agree, but I will take peach over lime green any day! All the years I've been following it's been green , green, green. Nothing wrong with green as long as it's not lime, but no color variety is boring!

I agree with you this is one of the best gowns I've seen her wear, just beutiful.

One ends to like her errrr "sparkling" style because it's so her (and we love her the way she is ), but sometimes when I see her wearing something that I like per se and not just because she's wearing it and suits her style, I wish she would give us a lot more like this.
