Princess Mary is the epitome of elegance for father-in-law"s 80th birthday

She was crowned the queen of style ahead of the Duchess of Cambridge last year, and when Princess Mary of Denmark stepped out at the weekend for her father-in-law Prince Henrik of Denmark”s 80th birthday, she showed us why.

The Australian-born princess
was the epitome of elegance as she sashayed her way along the red carpet for a concert to celebrate the milestone birthday with her husband Prince Frederik and their two older children, eight-year-old Prince Christian and Princess Isabella, seven. The royal couple”s younger twins Prince Vincent and Princess Josephine stayed at home.

Mary, who met her prince charming in a pub in Australia during the Sydney Olympics in the year 2000, sparkled in a stunning cream gown embellished with white and gold tulle overlay cinched in at the waist to create a ruched effect.

The stylish royal added a few touches of gold to finish the enchanted look – a gold-threaded headpiece, gold hoop earrings and a pair of gold stilettos.
