Princess Mary rocks edgy style at the Women’s Board Awards

Crown Princess Mary of Denmark rarely puts a foot wrong when it comes to her sartorial style. 

And it was no different on Friday when the royal arrived at the 2018 Women’s Board Award in an effortlessly elegant yet edgy get-up.

The 45-year-old was all smiles as she arrived at the Copenhagen ceremony before presenting the prestigious award to the 2018 winner and addressing the attendees.

Always one to experiment with her style, the Princess donned a chic camo blouse believed to be from Proenza Schouler and a striking new knee-length leather skirt. 

The skirt featured a sheer panel along the hem and its A-line shape balanced the high neck blouse and flattered her shape. 

Mary completed her look with a pair of snakeskin Prada pumps and understated jewellery by her favourite jeweller, Ole Lynggaard Copenhagen.

The look divided the online fashion community, however, with style bloggers debating the royal’s outfit on various royal style forums. 

‘Leather can be very elegant, but this is not how it’s done. Leather needs simple, no-fuss items… Mary’s outfit is guilty of that,’ one blogger wrote.  

‘I think she looks good, and appropriate for the event. I think the skirt is interesting and the hem treatment lightens it up,’ another argued. 

Despite her increasingly demanding schedule, the mother-of-four appeared relaxed and cheerful as she mingled with attendees and posed for snaps with fellow presenters

The Women’s Board Award, of which Princess Mary is a patron, has been held annually since 2014 and was established to put a focus on the achievements of women in management and on boards. 

The partners behind the Women’s Board Award are among the companies that have chosen to place a positive focus on the challenge of putting diversity on the strategic agenda. 

This year, Princess Mary awarded the prize to Marianne Kirkegaard, the CEO of CSM Bakery Solutions in Atlanta, USA.

The 49-year-old 49-year-old joined CSM Bakery Solutions, one of the world’s leading bakery companies in 2011.

In 2016 she was appointed CEO of the company and the same year she was admitted on Insight Success’ recognised list of the 30 most influential women in American business.

‘As a female leader in a still-man-dominated business world, I have experienced that in many contexts extra effort is required to be considered for the most exciting jobs in the management and management context,’ she said. 

‘On the other hand, I have also experienced that due to the debate about women in management, we get extra attention and in many contexts benefits when we get the jobs in question.’
