Royally orange

Mary, Crown Princess of Denmark, who turns 41 today, is nicely decked out in this orange Marc Jacobs number:

Mary, Crown Princess of Denmark

The occasion: the St. Petersburg Loye Prize and Medals ceremony at the Danish Museum of Art & Design in Copenhagen last summer.

Things you (by which I mean “I”) did not know about Mary:

  • She was born in Tasmania — her parents had emigrated from Scotland to Australia — and briefly attended grade school in Houston, Texas;
  • She was working for Microsoft in 2003 when Queen Margrethe II announced that she would consent to the wedding;
  • She and Crown Prince Frederik have four children: Christian, Isabella, and twins Vincent and Josephine.

And besides, it’s February. We need all the spring-ish looks we can get.

    She has the legs for it. Very country-chic.

    I’m glad fashionable women are still wearing orange this year. I hope it doesn’t become too popular though. That would take some of the fun out of wearing it.

    Oh, wait. I just noticed “last summer”. Oh well. I will still be wearing orange this year.

    That’s a very nice style of dress and she wears it well.
