  1. The thin red belt is really what makes this dress exquisite. Without it, it's only half as nice. Also, I think it's a bit long on Mary, it looks better a tad shorter (like on the model).

    1. I agree. I have had a black polkadot dress for years. I always wear it with a thin red belt.

    2. Agtee about the belt. But she still looks stunning, in my opinion! Simple but still a picture of elegance and sophistication.

  2. Wow! So simple, elegant and chic. The detail of this lovely dress is all in the neckline and Mary shows it off with style! Nothing needed around her neck. It's a perfect take of a LBD without being completely black; her decision to wear a black belt elevates it for evening wear. She couldn't look more perfect for a Paris soirée.

  3. Another great choice. The fit is impeccable and the neckline is superb. It shows off her collarbone without Mary being overexposed. I prefer the models belt because it adds a little color to a black and white look.

    1. I like the neckline too, but your comment made me have another look at her collarbone. And now I cannot help but think that maybe that neckline isn't all that attractive in her.

    2. The red belt is nice, but I would say it makes the outfit suitable for sunny summer day. This dark belt is much better for this kind of evening party. Love the dress and the whole appearance. -Siri

  9. Wonderful! I think Mary has lost weight. Looking at these picture, I can see her little daughter in my mind ... She is the spitting image of her mother and will be (better said already is) as beautiful and attractive in the years to come ...

  10. Always dressed to perfection

  11. Is the colour of the dress really black? It made me spontaneously think of Julia Roberts Polka-Dot-Dress in "Pretty Woman". Anyway Mary looks gorgeous as always!

  12. Von Kopf bis Fuß schlichte Eleganz - das Kleid ist wahnsinnig schön. Der Ausschnitt und dazu die unaufgeregte Frisur - ein tiefer Pferdeschwanz mit ein paar ausgezupften Strähnchen, die ihr Gesicht umspielen - ich weiß nicht was sie hätte noch besser machen können. Sie hat es einfach im Blut die CP Mary. Sie wird eine würdige Vertreterin von Königin Margrete. Die Dänen können stolz auf ihre künftige Königin sein...

  13. vu le temps à Paris : elle n'est pas frileuse !!

  14. I prefer Mary's belt as it is because it does not cut this heavenly dress in two. She is a dream in polka dots ... As for Frederick, I remember Mary's speech on his 50th birthday, she talked about him wearing very tight lycra - I think it was for cycling and she poked a little harmless fun on him. But I am sure Mary is clever enough not to criticise her husband for always wearing too tight jackets (he seems to like it like this :-)

  15. Men, please cool it with the blue suits.

  16. I guess I am at odds with almost everyone. She looks very good, but for an evening reception I find this dress particularly blah. It seems to me more appropriate for a summer evening out with friends. Not even required that it would be a dinner at a fancy restaurant. Given how many beautiful more formal dresses she already has in her wardrobe (I did a quick lookup through her previous looks and came up with at least 4-5), this particular dress does nothing for me. It is Paris after all and I admit I had high hopes for an outstanding repeat. Again, she looks nice, but whilst I appreciate ‘simple’, the impression I have is ‘rather boring and no pizzas whatsoever’. Hopefully next time!

  17. I hope Prince Joachim and Prss Marie were somehow associated in events, they are now staying in Paris.

  18. CP Mary looks stylish and oozes class. The dress is lovely, the polka dots are pretty, the perfect length and accompanying thin belt is the right choice. Her bag and shoes are spot on. Love the added touch of shawl. It would have been great to see it draped over her shoulders to have a visual of it. Her earrings are just enough. Her makeup natural and enhancing.

  19. Bezaubernd sieht Mary aus.
    Black Halo schneidert anscheinend traumhafte Kleider. Ich erinnere mich an Meghan Markles schwarzes Kleid von BH aus dem letzten Jahr. Das war ein Traum.

  20. Das Kleid erinnert mich an ihr Hochzeitskleid, da hat sie ihre schönen Schultern auch ähnlich betont. Zum schnuckeligen Frederik: er sieht auch sehr attraktiv aus. In Skandinavien und auch Italien tragen Männer, wenn sie es sich figürlich leisten können, die Anzüge so.

  21. This neckline looks sensational on CP Mary! And the print is always a classic.
