Really? Every year on my Anniversary I model my wedding dress of 23 years ago to my 11 yeAr old daughter. It's. silly little tradition that I think she likes because the second part is he trying it on to model downstairs for daddy. I have riding breeches 25 years old too

Good for you, although I do believe you and Anne are in the minority when it comes to still being able to fit into clothes you wore 20-30 yrs ago.

Unfortunately, Anne often wears the same styles from that time. She is a great lady and has done much, but don't tout her fashion, not that that is important. Her hair is a nightmare, she needs makeup and her clothes, although, some recently were much better, need a stylist, since she can afford that kind of stuff. She has chosen to look like yesterdays leftovers, she could do anything. She is not a good looking woman, but she must have something, she has had two husbands and several suitors. On the other hand, she is the queen's daughter.

Please stop imposing your silly fashion standards on Princess Anne. There are far more jobless royal women out there who will sufficiently entertain you with tonnes of make-up/stylists/designers/hair-dos..
Anne has far more meaningful things to do and she will probably stay in history as the most active daughter of a British monarch (or in fact any monarch) ever..
These fashions/jewels have always been there, and will always be there..nothing..absolutely nothing big..

This is something I've always admired about Anne. She has never bowed to the public's perception of what a princess ought to be. Anne dresses to please herself, if only more women and girls would do the same than maybe our society would have less of a problem with body image. I think she can look very striking, especially when she smiles or laughs.

There isn't actually that much to gain in terms of rank or fame by marrying the Queen's daughter, so I think her relation to monarch would have played a very small role in attracting any suitors.

Some looks always remain classics. I think, for example, that Catherine's look is very Jacqueline Kennedy. Unfortunately, Annes fashion taste is not Jaqueline Kennedy esque!

I couldn't agree more. In the words of Taylor Swift, "You've got a smile that could light up this whole town".

Oh yay, its a Tim sighting! Is Anne wearing the same jacket the Daily Fail claimed was Chaplin-esque?? I didn't see any resemblance to the famous comic at all. Bizarrely, I'm sure I've seen a picture somewhere of the Queen and Princess Anne meeting Charlie Chaplin.

Somehow she reminds me a bit of Hyacinth Bucket when they went sailing on a yacht.

Nice look for Anne in casual slacks and blazer; she looks ready to hoist a sail or two. Maybe even take a turn at the wheel!

Now now....It's not "Bucket". It's "Bouquet".

I love that show too.

Loved Anne's look today and it was totally her too. That shirt/blouse she had on under the blazer though? In a way I wish HRH had opened the blazer and given us a better look at it, as it looked so pretty the little of it we saw. Oh well... :)

She's tantalizing us with glimpses of that nice blouse; she needed to undo a few more buttons.....on the blazer, not the blouse! Well, maybe another button on the blouse.....
