Pretty dress minus maybe the epaulets. Wait, is that a teensy bit of a Spanx line right there under the waistband? So close! Otherwise, same song, different concert hall. Noting that Madam La Boganista has basically become a robot princess-thinggie, and that the Derf Man is coasting through life on whisky and blondes with occasional lapses into sobriety and interaction with his children or a sailboat, the Grey Men (tm) have wisely decided that it shall be our Disappointing Danish Duo who are sent around the world to open the same dog and pony show on Danish Design and Innovation. As a result, they will not be helping the "innovation" part of that branding; design is a stretch, too. The artificially-enhanced pair (he injects alcohol as she does face fillers) will repeat the same small talk, the same talking points about the iconic Ant Chair or the restaurant Noma, plugging the Made-in-China products of their rich besties: yacht owner and Scanomat coffee man Kim Vibe Pedersen; the private jet, Lego toys and amusement parks of Keld Kjær Christiansen; the patronage and windmills of Vestas' Ditlev Engel; the private jet and environmental systems components of the executives at Danfoss including Hans Michael Jebsen, pictured with the Derfs below.
Same, same, same. So no chance with this uncreative and useless pair to make any real mark. Such a shame. All that's new about Mary is that she's taken out the Romanian wiglets and is letting her fried, ratty-ends hair fly in the wind. At least MoreMore was able to ogle jewellery and to meet up with a man she's openly flirted with before, a rep from Georg Jensen. Fred had a moment to chat up the Asian lady there. Yet BT is still focusing on someone other than Mary. She's like a Where's Waldo on a website she used to own. Mary, you've jumped the shark, along with your youth. Good luck shilling Legos!

Inspired Crown Prince: Was It Something About Mary?
Starting today, Thursday to Saturday, Frederik and Mary of Denmark are official representatives in Hong Kong and Beijing, China.
The visit aims to promote Danish interests in business, design, fashion and culture. And the Crown Prince couple's first task was to open a major exhibition in design and business in Hong Kong.
Here, Denmark was of course represented not only by the royal couple but with a pavilion with 25 booths, where guests could see many different examples of Danish design.
Music lover Frederick's gaze immediately fell on a set of speakers in a modern design. And since Mary just smiled sweetly, because she also has an ear for music, so it is certainly not inconceivable that the modern speakers will soon have a place in one of the royal rooms in Frederick IIV's Palace at Amalienborg.
In addition to the modern speakers the couple also saw furniture, jewellery from Georg Jensen and Pandora, models of urban environments and what you can build with Lego bricks. Additionally, they will at the World SME Expo exhibition, which is an exhibition where new technological design solutions will be on display, will also be presented to the Chinese trading strategies, IT and e-business.
Later in the evening, Frederik and Mary will come in stylish clothes to participate in the Danish Commerce gala dinner which will be held in Hong Kong Parkview. Here Frederik will also give a speech.

"Hmmm, are these the free ones?"
Does she ever look at anything else with so much passion?
She has never looked at her own children so adoringly.
Suddenly, there's a tummy and no boobs. Horrid purse and shoes with that dress.
"I want to flirt with this bloke but I can't move my face!"
Pretending to be loving and caring, but it's all an act.
