Diminished Mary

Pale cocoa taffeta isn't really Mary's best colour, is it? Isn't this the underarm stubble costume? Prrrrhaps that is why her father-in-law Prince Henrik was grabbing onto her arm in other shots - he wanted to RAISE her hand to the sky and show the world what a lazy little Sybil he's dealing with. Look up SOIGNEE, Mary, and then tell Henrik you know what basic respect for your host entails! Absolutely demonstrates that mary doesn't give a **** for the King of Sweden - can't be bothered passing a razor under her arms for the occasion. Mary, it is NOT the equivalent to Frederik's three-day-growth post an Antarctic expedition, OK???? Not charming!

Yes, this was the same occasion when sweaty stubble was on display, as illustrated in the photo accompanying The Geneticist below.

It is amazing that with her access to people 'in the know', including her own vaunted Ole (who's done KIDMAN fer chrissakes) and the ghastly Marie Chantal who with all her moolah surely knows all the proper but gentle hair removal tricks, that sister cannot seem to be bothered. It was as if a few shots of restalyne and the laser resurfacing for hyperpigmentation were enough. Oh, and the occasional henna rinse. Shows a difference in thinking about beauty as a one shot deal-io versus a lifelong pursuit. But then, the same could be said of her attitude toward education, culture and grace.
Not to mention mastery of the Danish language!

But she did try to take revenge in Luxembourg, didn't she, when she wore that Femme Perroquet dress and that flower in her hair ;)
I agree, pale cocoa isn't her best colour but then those flashy colours clashed with her pale skin.

Was 'How to look demure' included in the Starmakers stint she participated in!...I mean, it wasn't exactly light years between this facet of the posing princess, and the photie where she resembles a chipmunk, with a gob full of popcorn...somehow, it's all a bit phoney, a facade, as she neglected the finishing touches, like removing the stubble from her underarms, surely a primary 'must' with a sleevless dress; Mares just ain't very polished, and a tad sloppy if she can neglect such a basic thing!

Anonymous - I agree that a sense of duty is not Mary's strength but her wastrel sponge hubby is worse! He didn't even bother to show for the event; too busy sailing.

CPM: "Mirror, Mirror on the wall who is the fairest one of all?"

Mirror: "Well, Mares.. you have the fairest skin (if you can call that pasty white stuff skin) but fairest in the looks department? It definitely AIN'T YOU!

Eat a sandwich, already! Go under some Ultra Violet and get some color!"

At that point, the fairytale princess yanks the mirror from off the wall and breaks it over her husband's head. Ah, all in a day's work!
