Best Repeated Variety
Most Stretched Repeat
Crown Princess MaryDanish Ruby Parure - and normally, I love it. But...maybe sticking the brooch on a piece of velvet and calling it a choker is stretching it just a tad, hmm? The choker is a new incarnation of this burgundy velvet dress, which is making its third appearance at the event and has been revamped from its original maternity form.
Best in New
Princess Mariediamond floral tiara.
And an Honorable Mention to...
Helle Thorning-Schmidtshe likes a good selfie, and she knows exactly how to dress herself for gala events when she's thrown in with tiara-wearing ladies. All politics aside, she's my tiara-less best dressed for the evening. I mean, this is just gorgeous.
There are two additional receptions in Denmark to be held yet (neither with tiaras, but still fancy court dress).
UPDATE: And here's the sparkly event in Japan, in the video below!
