The 25th anniversary of Crown Prince Frederik Fund

Friday, May 18th

It was on occasion of Crown Prince Frederik's 50th birthday and the 25th anniversary of Crown Prince Frederik Fund that the royal couple hosted a dinner at Frederik VIIIs palace, here. Earlier, the Crown Prince attended the presentation of scholarships which were handed over at Christiansborg Castle in Copenhagen. The Crown Prince Frederik Fund was a gift from Danish-Americans on occasion of his 25th birthday during while studying at Harvard University. He was also given the opportunity to meet previous recipients of the scholarship, which by the way, aim to support students of social sciences for one year study at the John F. Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University in Boston.

At first I was sure the dinner took place in private behind closed doors. But then suddenly a few pictures showed up after all. They were published on the Danish royal house. It indicates that, more or less, it was a private event. Nevertheless, Mary was beautifully dressed in one of her reused Temperley London evening gowns. She first wore this magnificent gown at a dinner at Christiansborg Castle in 2016, here. At that she matched it with her auction-bought tiara and black accessories. This time she paired the gown with chandelier earrings featuring Aquamarine blue stones and diamonds. They go way back till when she first arrived to Denmark. Since then, she has worn them numerous times, here, here, here & here. They are told to be a creation by Dulong Fine Jewelry, former Marianne Dulong. But I have never been able to confirm that information. The earrings have always stunned me. She embraced the style by wearing a couple of bracelets from among others Cartier and black pumps I think. It is worth noticing her beautiful hairstyle. Personally I am completely in love with this hairstyle and she makes it look even more beautiful with her amazing personality.

A media competition & the Crown Princess Scholarship

Thursday, May 17th

On Thursday morning, the Crown Princess arrived to Politikens House and was in a splendid mood. She was about to attend the presentation of the project Media Competition 2018 and its winners. More than 500 school classes participated the competition and have all created storied with the theme 'Love yourself -body and ideals'. The participants both focused on bullying, gender, eating disorders etc. Music was played and everybody had a great time -even the Crown Princess made a few moves to the music. Following, eight school classes were announced winners of the competition and the Crown Princess later entered the stage to congratulate all of them with a symbolic speech.

Attending the presentation of winner of the Media Competition 2018 was not the only event in her calendar that day. The Crown Princess also handed over her Crown Princess Mary Scholarship at University of Copenhagen. These scholarships are each year given to two exchange students from University of Copenhagen's Australian collaborators on occasion of these students stay in Denmark. Since the royal couples wedding, her scholarship has been handed over to two students each year. This year Tennille Louise Vitagliano from Sydney University and Max Kausman from Monash University were given the prestigious scholarships, personally handed over by the Crown Princess herself.

Seems like summer has finally arrived to Denmark and it is about time we get to see some real spring outfits. Like the one she wore presenting The Crown Princess Mary Scholarship and congratulations the winners of Media Competition 2018. She had chosen a brand new white blouse and reused beige trousers. From Royals & Fashion I learned that her new blouse is from Reiss. Think this is the first time we get to see her in their designs. Right? Mary then matched the Reiss-creation with old Massimo Dutti trousers. These are originally part of a suit. So the trousers comes with a matching blazer as seen in Japan on the 5th day, here. Kate is the one who made me aware of the identity of the trousers. A first I thought they were dusty pink. I was completely wrong. She embraced the style of a really chic spring look with jewellery from among others Dulong Fine Jewelry, Cartier and Ole Lynggaard Copenhagen. Then we also got to see that Pico hairclip again as worn during the first day of Copenhagen Fashion Summit 2018, here. Love the idea of hairaccessories. Personally, I have come to love bows and hairclips like Mary's. Her pointed python pumps are from Gianvito Rossi. The new clutch bag is more a mystery to me. Can't seem to find out where it is from. Any ideas?

As front promoter of the event she attended the summit on its official opening day last Wednesday.

What an outfit. Somehow I do not know how she manages to surprise me after all these years. I know we can expect almost anything from her and still I am overwhelmed and surprised. I absolutely love what Mary wore during the official opening of Copenhagen Fashion Summit. The combination of colour and textures are just great. She had matched a plain white button-down with a brand new jacquard skirt in green. Actually, the skirt is originally a dress and it comes from Hennes & Mauritz (collection: H&M Conscious Exclusive). A clever way to transform your old dresses into something new. I feel in love with this match so much that I had to tried myself. I paired a green pleated skirt with a v-neck button-down and black oxfords -and pink glitter socks. That works beautifully as well. Mary then accessorized her summit-outfit with green Dulong Fine Jewelry earrings, a Orit Elhanati necklace and Cartier and Dulong Fine Jewelry bracelets. She was also wearing her ostrich clutch from Naledi Copenhagen and nude Prada pumps. Note that the earrings are not new. She has worn them before a several different occasions, among other things in 2014 at the annual Day of Research, here.

We have already seen the most incredible outfits the last two days and that has amazed me so much. The look she presented to us at the dinner is also so beautiful. Mary dazzled in a reused white creation made by David Andersen -a very talented Danish designer. Do you remember having seen the dress before? First time was when she attended dinner on occasion of Copenhagen Fashion Summit 2014, here. Then a year later she wore it once again on a trip to Germany, here. For years this has been a personal favourite. Loves how the shape looks on her and the match of different fabrics. It has so many interesting details. As seen before, Mary embraced the style with earrings from Annikat and a matching pink Carlend Copenhagen clutch. White and pink is just a wonderful combo, don't you think? Her other jewellery are from Cartier and Dulong Fine Jewelry. She also wore a pair of new shoes -patent leather peep toe pumps with an ankle strap. So far I haven't been able to track them down, mainly because the lack of pictures. Please let me know your ideas.
