Best Dressed Of The Week – Elizabeth Banks In Elie Saab Couture, Mary, Crown Princess of Denmark In Jesper Høvring & Jason Sudeikis

BDOTW readers

Elizabeth Banks was your best dressed this week sweeping the red carpet with her breathtaking Elie Saab Couture gown, which also gave me chills; however, I selected Mary, Crown Princess of Denmark in her dazzling Jesper Høvring gown for looking every inch a princess.

When it came to the fellas, we were in total agreement: Jason Sudeikis. His sharp windowpane suit with contrasting shirt and tie was the most unique, interesting and well-styled suit to hit the red carpet last week.

This win is made all the more epic considering David Gandy was on the poll, as he is very much used to winning every poll he is entered into.

Mary, Crown Princess of Denmark In Jesper Høvring – 2014 Bambi Awards

Mary, Crown Princess of Denmark In Jesper Høvring - 2014 Bambi Awards

Following Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge’s lacklustre showing on the red carpet last night (November 13), I was delighted to see Mary, Crown Princess of Denmark attend the 2014 Bambi Awards in Berlin, Germany with Frederik, Crown Prince of Denmark.

I could only dream that the Duchess would dress like this for red carpet events.

Mary looked absolutely breathtaking wearing a sparkling blue peplum gown with a draped shoulder created by Danish designer Jesper Høvring.

Now this is what a princess should look like: chic, radiant, awe-inspiring and, more importantly, oozing a timeless elegance.

Her styling couldn’t have been more perfect, with a satin blue clutch and aquamarine girandole earrings, rounding out the look with an elegant chignon and pretty pink lips.

Inauguration Of King Willem Alexander of the Netherlands Party

Royals Party

Many other royals joined Sheikha Mozah bint Nasser Al Missned of Qatar to watch the water pageant to celebrate the inauguration of King Willem-Alexander of the Netherlands after the abdication of his mother Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands in Amsterdam, Netherlands.

Princess Mabel of Orange-Nassau: The princess was three for three when it came to her designer of choice: Viktor & Rolf. Her dual-colour white-and-pink gown from the designers’ Spring 2013 collection featured yet another bow, this time at the waist. If this dress feels familiar, it’s because US Marie Claire editor Zanna Roberts Rassi wore it during E’s pre-Oscar red carpet coverage.

Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden: Aside from her first Elie Saab purple number, the princess has stuck to a fairly neutral colour palette. On this occasion, she added a cropped fur jacket to a dazzling gold gown styled with metallic-gold pumps and a matching clutch.

Crown Princess Mary of Denmark: Standing out in red, the princess wore a red Jesper Høvring long-sleeved gown with a beautiful tiered skirt. Ruby Parure earrings and a bouffant updo completed her look. This gown is a repeat; the princess first wore it during her wedding celebrations back in 2012.

Crown Princess Mette-Marit of Norway: A mint-green gown capped Princess Mette-Marit’s trio of looks this week. The Valentino gown was clearly the stand-out piece, but I prefer her Giambattista Valli and this ethereal gown.

Inauguration Of King Willem Alexander of the Netherlands

Royals 1

There was yet more fashion to be had from our favourite royals, who joined Sheikha Mozah bint Nasser al Missned at the inauguration of King Willem-Alexander of the Netherlands yesterday afternoon.

Crown Princess Mette-Marit of Norway: Valentino would be considered one of Crown Princess Mette-Marit’s favourite designers, so I was not surprised to see her don one of their looks for this festivity. Her Fall 2013 white-and-blue gown featuring beaded embroidery, which was presented as a mini dress, was decorated with royal family orders and accessorized with another delightfully subtle tiara featuring ivory-and-blue lace floral accents.

Crown Princess Mary of Denmark: My queen opted for a Charlotte Lynggaard white silk dress with a floral print on the skirt and waist, which she styled with the same Prada pumps and Bottega Veneta clutch. On this occasion, she added a blue netted fascinator instead of the more traditional tiara. While this might be considered fairly laidback, she is the epitome of elegance.

Crown Princess Mary of Denmark In Marc Jacobs – St. Petersburg Loye Prize and Medals Ceremony

Crown Princess Mary of Denmark solidified her position as Vanity Fair’s best dressed royal when she attended the St. Petersburg Loye Prize & Medals ceremony at the Danish Museum of Art & Design on Friday in Copenhagen, Denmark.

The Princess looked beautiful wearing an orange Marc Jacobs dress which is an ultra-feminine take on a classic shirt dress with pleated front detailing, a self-tie waist and short sleeves.

Comparisons to Kate Middleton have been made as Princess Mary dared to wear nude LK Bennett pumps, but when it comes to style, I think the comparisons end there.

Gold jewels and a chic chignon completed her BDOTW-worthy look.

Who Wore Project D Better? Crown Princess Mary of Denmark or Pippa Middleton

When Pippa Middleton arrived at Wimbledon today to see the men’s singles final between Roger Federer and Andy Murray in London with her sister Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, I instantly recognised her Project D dress.

That’s because Crown Princess Mary of Denmark wore the same printed peplum dress whilst attending the christening of Princess Athena of Denmark at the Mogeltonder Church in Tonder, Denmark, back in May.

Coincidence, or is Pippa style-watching royals like the rest of us?
