Crown princess style match: Mary of Denmark vs Letizia of Spain
The crown princesses of Europe were out and about on 4 April. To the north, we saw Crown Princess Mary of Denmark looking put together on several state visits. In the south, Crown Princess Letizia of Spain was holding down the fort.
Whose princess style do you like better?
Well, first off, there doesn't seem to be much of a conversation to be had about the princess hairstyle. Both royals have hair that extends just past their shoulders. Both Letizia and Mary also tend for a simple blow-dried style, with ever-so-slightly curled ends. It's a look that is just about as basic as it gets and gets you out the door fast when you've got the Secretary General of the U.N. waiting to hang out with you. Kate Middleton, still young and still just a Duchess, still gets out the curling tongs to complete her classic look, but these old hats know better.
Now, as for makeup... guess what? There is a royal consensus as well. Surprise, surprise, natural beauty looks-- glossed up with a little light pink lipgloss and a thin stroke of eyeliner do both princesses well.
All that's left to analyze is the crown princess fashion of this lovely April day. Well, Mary of Denmark wore a khaki coat for a visit to the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts and Conservation. Later, she glammed up in a shimmery, light blue evening gown for an official dinner with her hubby Crown Prince Frederik and the Finnish president Sauli Niinisto.
On the same day, Crown Princess Letizia chose a polished all black look-- shimmery dress topped with black blazer-- to hang out with her hubby Prince Felipe, U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon and Madam Yoo (Ban) Soon-taek at a United Nations System Chiefs reception at El Pardo Palace in Madrid.
While Letizia looked very nice, we feel as if Mary wins this competition because she embraced spring with her light colours. Black may always be black but we are dying for the poppy colours of spring.
