You're right Parsley Sage, it's not the same dress now that there's a better picture of it. I like it and don't think it looks like a red doily either. I just wish she wore her hair up is all. That hat called for an updo IMO.

She may have requested a longer sleeve and less of a V neckline.

An article about the Duchess' influence on fashion and pictures of her outfits. Among them are very pretty dresses with lace detailing, one of which (on the far left under the lace section) I haven't seen before.

Crown Prince Fredrick and Crown Princess Mary of Denmark are also in NYC right now and I think for the weekend.

I adore Mary's dress! And I think she looks awesome for giving birth to twins last year.

Looks like she's got the nude shoes, nude hose look going too. I wonder if that will become generally popular now. (Side note: I had to go buy a pair of nude hose this past summer and was shocked at how sparse the offerings were compared to ten or fifteen years ago -- but I guess that's a reflection of what women are wearing. Or were wearing. And how little I've needed to buy hose.)

I think that wearing hose may have gone "out of fashion", lately.
I still prefer to do so. It's more "polished" and less casual.

More pictures and an article over at Hello both from yesterday and today's events...

Hello ~ Stylish Princess Mary is top of the class on US trip (http://www.hellomagazine.com/royalty/201110216368/princess-mary-denmark-tour-of-america-prince-frederik/)

Love that first picture of Mary w/the kids and trying to figure out that Math problem. My feelings exactly about Math too. :D

From today so far...

AND CP Mary of Denmark??? Come ON!

I have henceforth declared war on Scandinavia, due to lack of notification to their non-subject ubers. :drama:

Now I gotta get on the American-Scandinavian Foundation mailing list........ :D

The news wasn't even in the Danish news papers!

I love the nude hose, but I hate, hate nude shoes. On anyone. yuck. Dress is lovely.

the Finnish President has a really unfortunate haircut, if you ask me.
