i loved the pictures! marie looks lovely and very happy. can't wait to see more of them.

Santacruz 09-10-2008 11:28 AM

Marie looks very good but she makes the impression that fashion and styling isn't the most important thing to her. I like that.

GlitteringTiaras 09-10-2008 01:58 PM

Fashion and clothes aren't really her thing, as she noted in the documentary prior to her marriage to Joachim. Other than that she looks lovely these days.

Isn't that what they all (have to) say, I remember similiar comments from Alexandra and Mary. :smile:
Yet, I personally see 3 women who try(ied) to be fashionable and put an afford into styling - just as IMO it is (was) exspected of them in a country where design/fashion plays such an important role. Whether you like their styles or not is another question.

But I agree that Marie looked lovely (well, I personally never thought she didn't look lovely, not even in that suit at the Royal Guard Parade), she has a beautiful smile. And I am glad to hear her Danish lessons are going well.
On the other hand I have to say that IMO Joachim looks really bad, very cheesy next to his tanned wife - ill perhaps?

GlitteringTiaras 09-10-2008 03:21 PM

Joachim looks the same to me. As he ages he tends to look older than he really is. Marie is extremely tanned, but she looks happy and pretty so...By the way, I hate her hairdo... what in the world did her stylist do to her hair? Hello?! Late '90's prom hair, anyone?:biggrin:

:lol:Exactly! Her hair reminds me of the horrible styles worn by myself and my friends to our prom in the 1990s. Other than her hair, she looks fantastic. It is nice to see them on a royal visit.

I thought she just looked alright nothing special. Her white shirt looks too tight on her. Something about the outfit is just too plain. But I don't expect to like all that she wears.

I've noticed that some royal ladies married to princes tend to appear at times as though they are not as dressed up as their spouses. These pictures give me that thought. It's likely just my own perception. What Marie is wearing does not seem to be up to the same standard as Joachim's suit. I've seen this at times with Mathilde and Mette-Marit as well.

A lot of Marie's clothes look too tight. And Joachim always looks pale and uptight. They are an odd looking couple together. He looks so old!

GlitteringTiaras 09-10-2008 10:02 PM

Marie needs to stop tanning or stop using that tinted faux orange tanning lotion. Or is her skin naturally orange looking? On the other hand, Joachim could use a bit of sun or faux bronzer. Essentially, vice versa.

But like I noted before, she looks happy and it's good to see this couple out and about attending official and non-official duties together. Hopefully, Marie's "princess school" is over soon... I would like to see her tackle some official duties on her own as well as speak Danish... full speeches and all.

Xeara 09-10-2008 10:22 PM

Do you think Marie and Joachim will be travelling to Japan at the end of September as Danish representative to open the Vilhelm Hammershoi exhibition that Mary with Princess Benedikte opened in June at the Royal Acadmey of Art, London...Marie's first overseas engagment relating to Denmark? I think it is possible, I hope so anyway...

Thank you! I have been harping on this fake tan look forever - some members said that that is her natural skin coloring - Nobody has orange skin like that! And it limits the color palette in her clothing as well -

I have a couple of half-French friends who have the essentially the same shade as Marie, year round without any tanning or tanning lotion; it grows more pronounced in the summer when they've been out in the sun.

It could be fake, but after a summer in France, I think it is more a result of that than tanning lotion. Though, I'm reserving my final opinion until after she's been a winter in Denmark :rofl:

In some of the pictures, though, the lighting seems to exaggerate the orange-ness of it.

GlitteringTiaras 09-11-2008 05:08 AM

My skin tone is Olive (naturally) and I tan quite easily when I don't use sunscreen; however, Marie, from my perspective, looks at times very orange and over tanned. Yes, she does have a slight to pale Olive toned skin, but I believe she over does it when in the sun... which is obvious. No one is that crispy brown looking without the help of frying themselves in the natural sun and/or help from the help of a super intense fake n' bake tanning bed or tinted tanning lotions.


Nonetheless, I do agree with you regarding winter in Denmark. If she is still crispy brown and very Orange looking then clearly she is addicted to tanning.
:smile:

Her_Majesty 09-11-2008 05:30 AM

Well, I am having the same tan then Marie in those pictures and it's all natural.
I think it's hard to say if her tan is natural or not, but personally I think she looks pretty anyway :D .

Indeed. The truth is out there. ;)

It's something between old, ill and gaunt. He looks like a really heavy smoker with the habit taking quite visibly a toll on his skin or body. He gives a really unhealthy appearance with Marie next to him looking full of life.

This couple always remind me of a father who takes his daughter out for a day.....

I believe they have a 6 year age difference....That would be a very young father with a very old daughter.
Still, he is a bit lined and cigarettes do not help but I would not say he looks old enough to be her father.......:whistling:

is it just me but it seems that princess marie only wears 5 colours: blue, purple, beige, black and white!!! i think purple is one of her favourite colours.

She cannot wear greens or yellows because of her colouring and obviously she does not wear prints or flowery clothes. It is understandable that she wears the colours she feels comfortable in. Don't we all?
