Random Royaling – Mary in Paris

We haven’t checked in with Crown Princess Mary lately, but she hasn’t let our inattention slow her down. Most recently she’s been on a two day working trip to Paris, wearing some darn good clothes.

During her first day’s appearance, she went full on girly in this Elsa Adams dress, paired with coordinating Gianvito Rossi pumps. There is something faintly reminiscent of toile de jouy about the print. Style of Mary says that the designer has provided dresses for Josephine and Isabella, which might account for the overall youthful effect.

For the evening visit to the Danish Ambassador’s residence, she paired a repeated Giambattista Valli skirt with a minimalist white top. The overall effect is cool and elegant, and I don’t usually equate elegance with Valli’s funky bohemian designs.

I haven’t found any designer information on this white V neck dress, which is a shame because it’s my favorite of the trip. It photographs well. Whatever fabric is used in its construction must deflect wrinkles because there is nary one to be found on it. In close-ups, you can see a very faint charcoal pattern of large squares, which adds some interest. I am even, shockingly, on board with the length.

And for fun and because she looks great, here is a bonus! Daisy arriving on the Royal Yacht, heading to her summer house (well, her summer castle, Marselisborg Castle, to be precise). The colors are fun and fabulous, and she looks as happy as anyone starting a summer vacation of long duration should look. Keep up with the hats with brims, Daisy!

So what are you thoughts about the Danish women? Are they starting summer off right?
