  1. Marie is trying really hard, but she will never be as elegant as Mary. Because Mary is natural.
    Marie looks awkward in this. But the fabric is nice, and her hair too.

    1. I don't think Marie is trying anything……
      Marie has always had her 'own style' or lack of style! ;-)
      Mary has a stylist, not so 'natural' ! Look at her style before she became Crown Princess!
      I find Alexandra, 53 years old, is dressed as she trying to look younger, her dress is too short!

    2. Maybe I was wrong. You know them better than I do.

    3. I like Marie's dress the best, but I think it would be nicer if shorter.

  2. An attractive family. A wonderful celebration. Congratulations Nikolai!

  3. I disagree, Lassie. Sure, this dress was no winner. But Marie is French and has that intuitive style that comes natural to many French women. (But not so much today.) Mary is elegant too, mostly, but there is something stiff about her, like a dressed-up doll. I do admire her dedication to her job, though, she turns up everywhere and does it properly - better than those born to it. She will be a model queen one day, surely. Frederik does not seem to do much...

    1. I agree about Mary being stiff. Letizia is even worse. But Marie just doesn't seem well dressed to me.
      Sorry if I was rude.

    2. Totally different opinion, MARY has that intuitive style, not Marie..

    3. You were not rude, not mire than me calling Mary stiff!

    4. It does look often like Mary is trying hard. I associate that with the pressure of constantly under the flash lights, and to some extent to her Australian/ British background, i e the inclination towards more formal attire and less 'flair'. It's obviously a matter of one's preferences and taste if Mary 'a style, classy but rather boring at times, is better or worse than Marie's French flair. I actually like them both and enjoy the fact that they are quite different.

  4. None of the ladies look really good here in my opinion. The kids are the stars, they all look great.
    PS. Where is Fredrik?

  6. Nice family photos. I like all the ladies' outfits although I remain to be convinced by Alexandra's shoes with her dress. Mary's dress is nice but I think on balance I prefer Marie's.

    The grandsons with their bowties are wonderful and the little girls look cute. Shame Frederik couldn't be there.

  7. This is a repeat dress from Princess Mary but I don't mind. She looks radiant. Little Josie's dress is very nice.

    I like the dress on Alexandra but the shoes are hideous.

    Princess Marie, just OK.

    1. I'm glad to see that dress again - its too beautiful to retire it!

  8. Again Mary's the best dressed. Alexandra's dress doesn't suit her.

  9. Nikolai has grown so tall, her mother looks so small next to him.
    I liked Mary's dress the best. Marie's dress seemed to swallow her (i would have preffered updo and different shoes with this dress).

  10. I like Marie's dress I think she looks beautiful. Maybe her choice of outfit seems too much for many of you because she often wears simplier dresses but in my opinion this one suits her well. I wish she wore similar colourful dresses more often! Mary is beautiful as always. All the kids are super cute! Unfortunately I don't like Alexandra's dress and the shoes are terrible in my opinion.

  11. From my point of view the most elegant dress is Princess Mary. Alexandra´s dress is beautiful too, but I don´t think it fit well on her much less her shoes are hideous. Marie´s dress is also beautiful.

  12. Marie is beutiful and look youngish, the dress and hair. Agree, the shoes are not right.

  13. Love the pic of the queen and prince Henrik

  14. Marie and Alexandra should've swapped shoes!

  15. Wow, Nikolai has grown up quickly.

    Mary looks beautiful, and while I agree her style has evolved since her marriage, I do believe Mary has a good sense of style, is always beautifully groomed and she seems to know what suits her (most of the time). Her style appears, although it probably isn't effortless.

    Marie, would have had the same opportunities and advise as Mary, yet something always looks "not quite right" with Marie. To me Marie always looks as though she is trying hard, but she never quite gets it right. In this instance I believe it is either the length of the dress or the shoes, as the dress looks nicer on the model in my opinion. Those few inches and the toning shoes seem to make a huge difference.

    I don't like what Alexandra is wearing at all. Her dress is too short and I think her
    shoes are horrid.

    I think all the children look wonderful in their formal attire.
