Show of hands, who had to double check to make sure this Jenny Packham wasn’t the Jenny Packham from Paris? It’s not. It’s better. And if there was a better hairdo in play here, I’d be properly head over heels. She wore the Diamond Chandelier Earrings on loan from the Queen as she has done several times, which are too fabulous to be playing this game of hide and seek.

The annual Crown Prince Couple's Prizes were presented this weekend. Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary presented prizes honoring work in cultural and social areas, and for up and coming innovators.

One of the award winners was designer Cecilie Bahnsen, so what did Mary wear? A dress from Cecilie Bahnsen, of course, along with her diamond and pearl wedding earrings. I’m wishing for a different color than this light blue here, maybe?
