Not when you're using someone elses wedding to advertise it. Who goes out of their way to gain attention for something on what is supposed to be another person's greatest day? Mind you I don't believe she did that, just saying I think it's wrong if she did.

Sure some people may now know that she is auctioning that hat but the majority of the world still see her as a figure to be laughed at for wearing it at all.
I would think that what she did about the situation, the auctioning of the hat, would go a long way to defuse the world's opinion of her.
At least I would hope.

I'm not sure it's fair to say she has been a laughing stock for years. People have criticized her, certainly, but that does not make you a laughing stock. Something like this makes you a laughing stock, not the DM critiquing your figure.

Alas, I think the sad part of this debacle is that a vast majority of people outside of Britain probably had no idea who Princess Beatrice was. Now this is their first and lasting impression of her.

I don't think Pss B has been a laughing stock. The trashy press made fun of a young woman 'cuz she didn't fit the rail-thin anorexic look that for some reason is highly promoted in the media. Nevermind that even photos of actresses and models are photoshopped to perfection and that the goals of the fashion industry are unattainable for the majority of women in the world, and unhealthy to boot. Personally, I find both York girls far more attracive than say Pippa who with her sun damaged skin looks much older than her years. To me, the Yorks with the large eyes, fabulous complexions and nice curves are quite lovely (tho Pss B has lost a considerable amount of weight so she now has less curves, but is still extremely pretty imo).
As for that hat, there's no excuse. But at least she seems to be handling all the crazy publicity well and is doing something positive with it.

I agree, Bella. I think that the York princesses are "real women" in that they don't fit that bleached-blond, khol-eyed, super-thin look that's so popular today. They might be very high-born, but they look normal. They have a particularly British prettiness, I think.

I am sorry that my comment was taken so wrong. I Never mentioned weight, but rather her Style of dressing. It has always left much to be desired, imho. The pic of her in the red dress was lovely and I said so.

Oh indeed! And when she was over weight and dressed appropriately and tastefully, I remember you mentioned that as well.
Wish she could clone the red dress look. That really suited her well.

udyusa, I was more thinking of all the comments made in the media about her weight, etc. I know you didn't mention that. She has def. made some serious fashion faux paus, but I think the media has made habit of pointing out the York girls physical imperfections (which we all have). I agree, tho, the red dress was stunning.

I think Beatrice and her sister have bealthy beautiful figures which goes unnoticed when their outfits are gone awry.

Oh, I didn't take your post as negative or critical! I was just offering another view of how she is seen, and I think we are basically in agreement.

I like Princess Beatrice's look too. Her eyes do stick out and she has a prominent jaw, but for some reason I still find her quite attractive. I think she and her sister have that "English rose" pink and white complexion that Diana seemed to have at the peak of her beauty, and I think the Queen had it when she was young as well.

Forgive me if I've missed this already being posted but I just read that Beatrice's infamous hat sold for more than 80000 pounds.

The princess gets a lot of criticism for her dress sense but she seems like a good hearted person and her comments surrounding 'Hat-gate' to me indicate someone who doesn't take herself overly seriously.

Beatrice looks great in the new pics. And I'm thrilled that the hat she wore to the wedding had fetched such a very good price. Those two children's charities have vastly benefited from Beatrice's philanthropic decision to auction off the hat. I think Beatrice has shown a lot of grace and heart in this situation.

Her outfit is nice but why does she look so... starved? Is she still training for marathon?

She is still watching her weight and unfortunately due to the criticism that people have made about her over the years I woudn't be surprised if she is suffering from an eating disorder.

As far as I know she isn't still training for the marathon but then again she might be.

She does enjoy running for fitness of course.
