Crown Princess Mary during her day in Paris on occasion of OECD Forum


For Mary to attend the OECD Forum opening in Paris, France, is really something I have been looking forward to in quite some time. On Monday evening the Crown Princess attended a delegation dinner with the Danish ambassador of OECD, here. The following day, a 9:00 am. local time, the Crown Princess entered the stage and gave the opening speech on occasion of the ministerial meeting OECD Forum. Her speech was insightful, giving and thoughtful. Very time I listen or read the Crown Princess' speeches, I am overwhelmed by her eloquence. Every word is well-chosen and sincere. You find her speech here. Other than the future queen of Denmark; politicians, researchers, entrepreneurs, business leaders etc. were gathered to participate in both meetings, discussions and panel-debates during the conference. All to exchange knowledge and more on globalization challenges. Around noon, Mary attended lunch with Danish designer in Danmarkshuset in Paris followed by a meeting with the First Lady Madame Birgitte Macron. The meeting took place in the afternoon at Élysée palace -a remarkable sight.


On her second day in Paris, Mary showed up wearing a grey belted dress! The lovely creation is from the Danish designer Signe Bøgelund-Jensen. I am pretty sure it is not the first time we see Mary in this dress, but I could be wrong. Think she wore it when visiting Poland back in 2014, here. The model is the same but I'm not quite sure about the colour. What do you think? -it is the same as seen in 2014? Nevertheless, she looks incredible! Mary embraced the style by wearing a twisted golden Orit Elhanati necklace, a bracelet from Cartier, ring, earrings and another bracelet from the talented Dulong Fine Jewelry. When meeting with the First Lady, Madame Birgitte Macron, at the Élysée palace she showed us a brand new dusty pink coat. It was identified by Heaven as Hugo Boss. Love how the different colours -dark and light- makes a perfect outfit. As other accessories she had chosen her pointed python snakeskin pumps from Gianvito Rossi and a beige Prada handbag. Her makeup were flawless as always and the hairstyle looked all great! I am simply impressed by everything I see. What an impression to wear Danish design in Paris. Her outfit has certainly given my lots of ideas on how to wear grey. Do you feel inspired?

Crown Princess Mary attending dinner in Paris

Quite a while ago it was announced that the Crown Princess was going to Paris on occasion of the opening of OECD Forum, a ministerial meeting and I have been looking forward to it since then. And it has been two wonderful days. Earlier in the morning she attended the opening where she gave the opening speech. She also met the French First Lady in the afternoon. In the end of a few good days in Paris, the Crown Princess was invited for dinner. At the arrival she was warmly welcomed by General Secretary Angel Gurria, who seemed happy to welcome the Crown Princess. The prestigious dinner took place at OECDs headquarters. Mary attended as guest of honor along with 150 special invited guests. It has become a habit for the press to only published very few pictures from these evening events and the same happened this time. I have only been able to find very few pictures etc. from her presence at the dinner. From what I see; Mary really enjoyed the evening in good company.

One of the reasons why I have been looking forward to the visit in Paris, is because of what we saw at this dinner -magnificent outfits! Attending the dinner, Mary was beautifully dressed in a reused burgundy blouse worn a couple of times before, here & here, which I suggested could be from Jesper Høvring. With help from Heaven it has been confirmed! She matched the burgundy blouse with a new golden embroidered pencil skirt which is from Prada. I learned about the skirt from Kate. I am completely overwhelmed by this new skirt. Think it is so stunning and especially the fact that she accessorized the outfit with new metallic gold pumps. According to Royal & Fashion these are from Gianvito Rossi. Personally, I can't really tell. It could be true, the style is similar. What do you think? I would love to hear your thoughts. She embraced the style wearing golden jewellery from Dulong Fine Jewelry, Orit Elhanati and Cartier such as a Carlend Copenhagen clutch. Love to see Mary wear her jewellery again. Often she wears bracelet, earrings etc. more than once when she's abroad. The dinner is a perfect example. What really amazed me (other than the skirt) is her hairstyle. The wavy hair really reminds me of a 70s hairstyle, just way better.

For sure it has been a couple of wonderful days for the Crown Princess in Paris, don't you think? Thanks for following her whereabouts in France with me.
