There is a unwritten rule, a patternwhich is being repeated lately in all great royal celebrations. The Women usually choose immaculate white, a symbol of purity and truth, for big occasions (and not just for weddings). We saw it recently in the Leonor swears in the Constitution, on her birthday, last October 31. Before, too, on the day of his father’s coronation, Philip VIand the white dress that Letizia wore. Also the color chosen by Kate Middleton (a design by Alexander McQueen) for the coronation of his father-in-law, Charles III last year. And we saw it again this Sunday, January 14, in the proclamation of Frederick X as the new king of Denmark.
For such a special day, Mary of Denmark has also chosen a simple and elegant white long sleeve dressaccompanied by a coat to game. The subtle neck piece stood out, like a scarf, and a belt with rhinestones incorporated, work of Danish designer Soeren Le Schmidt.
What caught the most attention about the cut was the bust area. From the sash came a pleated detail that joined the waterfall neckline of the dress and fell down the back creating a layer effect.
To make the dress, the queen once again relied on her leading dressmaker, Birgit Hallsteinwho was also in charge of sewing her wedding dress (that time designed by Uffe Frank) for her wedding with Federico in May 2004.
Bet on Danish fashion
Mary usually bets on national brands, especially young Danish design talents. Soeren Le Schmidt is famous for his knotted fabric designs and original necklines.hence Mary of Denmark has already resorted to the couturier’s talent more times.
Although she wore an impressive tiara at the New Year’s reception, this time she did not opt for one. But for more discreet dressings.
Mary has completed her ‘look’ with historical jewels with meaning in the royal family, in silver. She has worn some teardrop earrings encrusted with diamonds and precious stones. She has combed her hair with a low updo adorned with a beautiful jewel brooch. And manicure, also in white.
