Mary is usually one of the first to rack up a contender for her best list each year, thanks to one of the most formal occasions on the Danish calendar falling on January 1, the New Year's Banquet. Except in 2017, she baffled me by tossing a seemingly unrelated plum cape over her sublime gold gown. Fast forward a couple days, and the pieces all fell into place: the cape belongs to this, a splendid new Lasse Spangenberg outfit perfectly suited to these court dress occasions, requiring a long dress and no tiara (because it's in the daytime). Love.

Victoria's best is often drawn from December - usually from the Nobel Prize ceremony, but for this year, I have to give it to the sharp red skirt and jacket she wore to Prince Gabriel's christening. Excellent color, excellent proportions, excellent all around.
