There was no question who was the centre of attention at the Copenhagen International Fashion Fair this week as Crown Princess Mary attended the catwalk extravaganza. All eyes were on the Danish style icon who looked the epitome of chic as she got a first-hand look at the latest trends.

The stunning princess, who is patron of the bi-annual event, opened the fair last Thursday but has since been back to meet designers and take a peek at the must-have looks for next spring. Internationally recognised for her elegant wardrobe tastes, the princess didn't disappoint her fans as she attended on Sunday in a slinky black and coffee-hued dress with coordinated heels.

Aussie-born Mary, who takes a keen interest in all things sartorial, looked delighted as she perused racks of designer clothes and took in some of the runway shows. More than 900 designers from 50 countries were displaying their collections in the capital.
