Last night royals turned up from around the continent to celebrate Prince Christian of Denmark’s 18th birthday at a gala at Christiansborg Palace in Copenhagen, and yet it was a certain Dutch princess who stole the show.
Princess Catharina-Amalia, the 19-year-old daughter of King Willem-Alexander and Queen Máxima of the Netherlands arrived at the gala wearing the most stunning royal blue floor-length gown with trailing chiffon cape by Belgian fashion brand Essential Antwerp and Queen Emma of the Netherlands’ sapphire tiara.
She kept her makeup simple to allow her dress to catch the eye and wore a bronzed glowing makeup look and shiny nude lips. The royal also wore her long chestnut locks in simple tousled curls.
The Princess tied the look together with a simple silver clutch to allow the shoes – the showstopper of the entire look – to do the talking.
The Dutch royal was seen sporting a pair of dark blue satin Manolo Blahnik satin pumps in the shade ‘Hangisi 105’ which featured an embellished silver buckle.
Not only did the Manolo Blahnik pumps add the most glamorous finishing touch to the regal look, but the Princess looked every bit the ‘It-girl’ in a shoe rocked most iconically by Sarah Jessica Parker as Carrie Bradshaw in Sex and the City.
Everyone’s favourite columnist famously wore designer shoes when she said ‘I do’ to Mr. Big at her city hall wedding.
The shoes were an instant fan favourite as a shoe that completely encapsulated the incredible style of Carrie Bradshaw – totally glamorous and fabulously unconventional.
Princess Catharina-Amalia receives major brownie points for nailing this major ‘It-girl’ moment alongside Princess Elisabeth of Belgium.
The Belgian princess, 21, looked stunning in a pink-toned neutral satin fit and flare gown with matching long gloves and a beautiful sparkling tiara.
King Willem-Alexander’s eldest daughter is a royal of note recently. The Princess stunned in another stunning royal blue number when she joined her parents at Prince’s Day (Prinsjesdag), the opening day of the Dutch parliament in September alongside her sister Princess Alexia who wore The Order of the Netherlands Lion for the very first time.
She has also been seen playing it cool in more casual looks like the jeans and lemon blazer ensemble she wore to King Willem-Alexander and Queen Maxima’s annual summer photoshoot with her sisters Princess Alexia and Princess Ariane, 16, on Zuiderstrand beach in The Hague.
