Year in Review: Crown Princess Mary's Best of 2015

We've already refreshed our memories on the year's major royal events, because I don't know about you, but that's what usually ends up providing the bulk of my favorite royal outfits for the year. The first of our regulars to take the Year in Review stage is a perfect case in point.

Crown Princess Mary managed to turn up the volume for her mother-in-law's 75th birthday celebrations while also reusing pieces from the past, a balance that left the spotlight on the birthday girl but still gave me my pick for Mary's Best of 2015:
Two reasons I love this:
  1. The Crown Princess has sent multiple outfits back to the tailor for a little sartorial renovation over the years, and this is a showcase of how great that strategy can be. On its third redo, I have finally fallen for this midnight velvet Prada dress.
  2. That necklace! Need I say more? This event was its first appearance, and we're still waiting to learn more. Perhaps 2016 will send us some answers.

My list of honorable mentions features more repeats:
