Princess Mary dazzles at Copenhagen Fashion Week


Danish Crown Princess Mary

Looking resplendent in a jewel-embellished black coat, cigarette pants and white jumper, Princess Mary kicked off the Copenhagen Fashion Week in Denmark in the most elegant, dazzling manner.

Dressed warmly but stylish for the wintry weather, the 44-year-old added the final touch to her look by wearing a pair of Valentino rockstud heels. She brightened up her look with a bold pink lipstick and accessorized with dazzling crystal earrings. Everyone at the event fell prey to her characteristic warm smile.
Renown for being the largest fashion show in the Nordic Region, Copenhagen Fashion Week runs every February and August. The main venue of the shoe is at the City Hall of Copenhagen in the city center.
Joining designers at the opening of the annual event at City Hall, the style icon posed for photos with Eva Kruse, CEO Copenhagen Fashion Summit.
Mary, Crown Princess of Denmark, Countess of Monpezat, is the wife of Frederik, Crown Prince of Denmark, Frederik is the heir apparent to the throne of Denmark. The royal couple have four children, out of which two are twins.
Their story is an authentic modern fairytale between a Prince and commoner. The royal couple met at the Slip Inn, a pub in Sydney, when the Prince was visiting Australia during the 2000 Summer Olympics. They got engaged after three years, and then they married the following year, which received extensive coverage by both Australian and European news media.
The Copenhagen Fashion Week doesn't only showcase designs from established designers, but it also promotes up-and-coming talent as well, particularly with the Designer's Nest Award.
As the patron of Designer's Nest Award, the Australian-born princess presented the winners at the coveted event. The aim of the award is to expose and promote up-and-coming designers in order to boost their chances to make it in the fashion industry.
Australian photographer Natalie Rap spoke with the princess and then told Daily Mail Australia that Mary took the time to speak with guests and take photos. The photographer said the princess was friendly and approachable.
Accordingly, Mary “raved” about the Danish label and praised the historic brand for being sustainable.
“Everyone was really impressed with how she was so friendly and approachable,” Miss Rap said.
“Many locals said to me I was lucky to have the chance to speak with her as it's a rare opportunity in Denmark.”
Mary observed Danish fashion house Fonnesback's Spring/Summer 2017 collection from the front row. Established in Denmark in 1847 by Anders Fonnesbach, the label combines historic pieces with modern fashion to create timeless designs, including a bright yellow gown with cut-out sleeves that took the runway by storm.
Mary wore an off-white dress by Daniel label Julie Fagerholt Heartmade, valued in US$523. The dress is made with silk and features a gold thread with button closure.
She paired the dressed with a rust-colored coat by Fonnesbech, snakeskin and suede stilettos by Italian fashion house Sergio Rosson, and a clutch from Danish label Carlend Copenhagen. Only the crocodile-skin clutch retails online for US$1273.
