Whether she is shopping with friends in Spain, fulfilling royal duties in Denmark or spending time with her young family, Princess Mary remains effortlessly elegant.
A wardrobe of classic pieces, block colours and the occasional daring print ensure the mother-of-four remains on trend.
In April, the Princess stunned in a floor-length off-the-shoulder gown to attend the Gala Dinner at Christiansborg Palace, her hair swept beneath the Ruby Parure Tiara that once belonged to Prince Frederik's grandmother Queen Ingrid.
Four months later, a chic Mary showed her love of designer wear when she attended Copenhagen Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2016 in a soft peach sleeveless coat, tailored white pants and studded nude stilettos.
Later in the year, Mary chopped her long brunette mane into a shorter, shoulder-length style, and was voted 'most stylish royal' in a Hello! magazine reader poll.
But even when she is off duty Mary never fails to impress, and showcased a laid-back bohemian approach to style on a holiday to Byron Bay with her family in December.
It is this ability to shift effortlessly between gowns and chic street-wear that saw the Australian-born royal voted 'most stylish royal' of 2015 by readers of Hello! magazine for the second year running - taking out the UK's Duchess of Cambridge for the coveted couture crown.
Here, FEMAIL charts Mary's most memorable sartorial moments of 2015.
