'At the top of her game' Crown Princess Mary dazzles in upcycled dress for gala dinner

On Sunday, September 11, Crown Princess Mary and Crown Prince Frederik stepped out at Christiansburg Castle to commemorate 50 years on the throne for Queen Margrethe II.

Celebrations were scaled back over the weekend out of respect for the Queen’s third cousin, Queen Elizabeth II, who passed away on Thursday, September 8.

However, Crown Princess Mary, 50, looked stunning in a black and gold gown at the palace gala dinner.

The royal upcycled her own Jesper Hovring dress, adding a new layer of black lace as confirmed by the brand.

It is believed to be the dress she wore on March 28, 2017, during the visit of the Belgian King and Queen at Christiansborg.

She looked regal as ever in the floor-length number, with the skirt of the dress trailing behind her.

A body of black lace around the waist cinched her in and accentuated her curves.

The gown also had a dainty panel of lace across the top of the bodice which skimmed both shoulders.

As for accessories, the royal opted for black pointed toe pumps featuring sheer black lace.


These elegant shoes were the Lace and Suede Pumps by Gianvito Rossi.

The pattern on the shoes was almost identical to that of the dress, which tied the look together nicely.

The Crown Princess paired the look with a simple black bag, the Compact Clutch in Black Sequins by Sergio Rossi.

As for jewellery, Mary turned heads in the Danish Ruby Parure Tiara and Necklace, an elegant mix of rubies and diamonds.
