This was a really surprising outfit, to see the purple Prada dress was amazing! I think Mary really surprised us with this outfit. Wearing her bright purple dress she was given the title as the best dressed woman at the INDEX award. What a title to get and I really think she deserves it. I'm not sure I would have chosen the same accessories as she did but why not? Sometimes life is too short to wear 'safe' clothes, it is fun to mix and match prints, colours and wear clothes again years later and see how your style have developed. This is exactly what I think when I see her in this particular dress. My guess is that she wore it the first time in around 2008 or 2009 on a visit to... somewhere in the world (Thailand?). At that time her style was very classic and feminine, these two words really described what she was wearing and how. Today Mary is a embracing a more modern style and she's playing with colours and prints lately. This is a great example. I have never been able to find her violet/purple dress as a model but the Hollywood star Kirsten Davis has been seen in the exact same one identified as Prada. Her hairstyle is also eye-catching and if you love it as much as I do and is ready for a challenge you find a similar up do right here! Good luck everybody. 

When I finally stopped staring at the stunning dress and her hair my eyes caught her glittering pointed pumps. They might be one of the reasons why she was given the title as the best dressed because shoes is really something that create a woman and show who she is. By wearing these Gianvito Rossi (Pre-A/W 2012) glitter pumps, with a print of leopard, Mary gave me the sense of independence and... girl power! Unbelievable that a pair of shoes can tell so much. This entire outfit  shone of independence and confidence. Royal Outfit of Crown Princess Mary identified the glitter leopard pumps, thank you so much for the help! Because they are from his Pre-A/W 2012 collection they are no longer available, so if you are interested you might find them pre-owned. With the satin yellow Yves Saint-Laurent well I'm amazed. In the same glitter effect she wore expensive Jewelscph earrings. With this outfit Mary takes the classic princess-look to a entire new level! Please, Mary show us more of this.

  1. Wow, now I doubt it. It looks like her shoes have a round pattern in the glittering... or it's only the light...

    1. You are right. I think the shape is the exact same but the color... I'm not sure about that. Maybe it is because the pictures is taken in the evening :)

  2. Lovely colour and she looks great. But something bothers me about the sleeves. Probably just me though.

  3. You are right HannaL.: I also love the color, which is really flattering on her. But I'm not a fan of the sleeves. I would prefer them a bit slimmer and tighter around her breast, so that they only cover a bit of the shoulders...

    By the way: I read in a german newspaper about the new trends in fashion. Like Paula Cademartori is the new Celine Trapez-Bag etc. And there they say Louboutins are replaced by Gianvito Rossis Shoes. Caroline Roitfeld does wear only Gianvito's shoes in the last time...
    I think they really have an interesting twist!

    1. Thanks for the link! Great to know that the celebrities also become aware of other designers than Christian Louboutin - but he is good.

    1. I can tell you that the ring and bracelet is not new. Here you can see a picture of the bracelet: http://lh3.ggpht.com/-whXm3cPC8UY/UC5WeA5MzpI/AAAAAAAAR38/cGC8SNVXBts/s1600-h/222222210%25255B1%25255D.jpg She has worn it so many times. And the ring too. I think the ring is a old one she have from Queen Margrethe or Frederik.
