Fashionable princesses at the Olympic Games

EN - The London Olympic Games are recently over and some nations were supported by very elegant fans!
The Duchess of Cambridge attended several competitions and she often chose blue, white and red (the colours of the Union Jack), a terribly stylish combination for the clothing. She ranged from High Street brands like Zara, to the official t-shirts and windbreaker jackets with which were supplied the British athletes, to designers – strictly British fashion designers, as usual – like Stella McCartney.
The Crown Princess of Denmark Mary shares with the Duchess of Cambridge the same predilection for Zara. During her London walks or aboard the Danish Royal Yacht Dannebrog, she worn the same model of a Zara blazer in white and navy blue. The beautiful burgundy trousers that she worn during the swimming competitions are noteworthy as well.
Still within the Danish Royal Family, Princess Marie of Denmark was very elegant on board the Danish Royal Yacht with a simple white dress and grey cardigan (light grey is always able to look chic).
In addition to Zara, another High Street brand turned out popular among the royals: Longchamp. The bag model Le Pliage was used by both Queen Sofía of Spain and the Duchess of Cambridge. It is such a pleasure seeing my favourite brand of bags used by a queen and a princess!!!
The beautiful Princess Charlene of Monaco was elegant in beige that enhances her complexion and, together with navy blue, is a touch of style for a day-time outfit.  She attended many swimming competitions to support her former swimming teammates from South Africa (her native country) and in these occasions she wore sporting t-shirts and tracksuit pants with extreme grace thanks to her past as former Olympic athlete.
Last but not least, at the Olympic Opening Ceremony of London 2012 the Danish athletes were the most elegant, thanks to their pretty red cardigan and blue navy circle skirts!

IT - Le Olimpiadi di Londra si sono concluse da poco e alcune nazioni sono state sostenute da tifose molto eleganti!
La duchessa di Cambridge ha assistito a numerose competizioni e per i suoi look ha privilegiato i colori dell'Union Jack: blu, bianco e rosso, certamente un magnifico trio di colori per l'abbigliamento. Ha spaziato da marchi High Street come Zara, alle t-shirt e giacche a vento in dotazione agli atleti della nazionale britannica, a stilisti – sempre e rigorosamente britannici – come Stella McCartney.
La principessa ereditaria di Danimarca Mary ha in comune con la duchessa di Cambridge un debole per Zara. Passeggiando per le vie di Londra o a bordo dello yacht Dannebrog della famiglia reale danese, ha indossato due blazer di Zara dello stesso modello nei colori bianco e blu navy. Molto belli anche i pantaloni bordeaux che ha indossato alle gare di nuoto.
Restando ancora nella famiglia reale danese, la principessa Marie di Danimarca, avvistata a bordo dello yacht reale, risulta molto elegante con un semplice abitino bianco e cardigan grigio (il grigio chiaro ha il potere di risultare eternamente chic).
Oltre a Zara, un altro marchio High Street ha trovato il favore tra le reali: Longchamp. Il modello di borsa Le Pliage è stato usato dalla regina Sofía di Spagna e dalla duchessa di Cambridge. Che soddisfazione vedere il proprio marchio preferito di borse indossato da una regina e da una principessa!!!
Anche la bellissima principessa Charlene di Monaco si è distinta per grazia ed eleganza. Il beige dona molto al suo incarnato e, abbinato al blu navy, è un tocco di classe per un abbigliamento da giorno. In tuta e t-shirt alle gare di nuoto per tifare il Sudafrica (suo paese d'origine) e sostenere i suoi ex compagni di nuoto, Charlene ha dimostrato di saper portare con estrema grazia le tute sportive, grazie al suo passato da ex olimpionica.
Infine, le atlete più eleganti alla cerimonia di apertura delle Olimpiadi di Londra 2012 sono state le danesi, grazie ai loro deliziosi cardigan rossi e gonne a ruota blu navy!
