Royal Event of the Day: June 5

Yesterday, the Danish royal family gathered to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the 1915 Danish constitution, in which women were given the right to vote. And the outfits were...

Queen Margrethe
...pretty standard. Leave it to Daisy to sweep in like she's running an errand after work, coat flapping in her breeze.

Princess Marie and Prince Joachim
...pretty metallic. This is a lot of mixed metals, when you throw in the breastplate situation plus the sparkly shawl plus the sparkly shoes. Too many mixed metals, for moi. That dress shape does work well with her shorter hairdo, though.

Crown Princess Mary and Crown Prince Frederik
...and pretty fabulous. You might not love Mary's dress as much as I do, but I love it enough for us both. You see, I've been lusting after these Burberry Prorsum silk georgette dresses in all their different forms for a while now (see: Maggie Gyllenhaal and Olivia Palermo in Mary's version, or Naomie Harris and Kirsten Dunst in a solid color version). They're very flowy, and romantic, and all of that stuff. And pairing this with the Valentino Rockstud shoes, a nude pump but with some bite? Perfection.
Also of note, the group shown here will all be in Sweden for the big wedding! Maybe Margrethe was in a rush to get home and polish her tiara.
