This young woman has no fashion sense. I'm surprised that she has no one who could help her look fabulous especially now that she has lost weight. This poor girl needs help.

IMO, this would have looked better with a nice, closer fitting sweater. The blouse is ill fitting across the bust line, altogether "too much stuff" above the full skirt. A sleeker fitting top would have been more flattering. I personally do not care for flowered garments but I do know they have been shown recently in many magazines and fashion sites. Beatrice needs someone to help her put more "balance" in her clothes, IMO.

Gee, and here's me thinking she looked delightful and, unlike almost everybody, having changed to light florals she went with nude stockings and beautiful shoes instead of black tights and boots!

I think it's a pretty outfit and that she looks fine.

I like the blouse with the skirt. It is a pale apricot and there is apricot in the skirt, and the blouse also seems to have coloured buttons and some coloured bits on the collar which may also match the skirt. The only thing I'm not keen on is the purse, which, as far as I can tell, doesn't seem to match anything.

I like it. She looks bright and cheerful and dressing appropriately for her age she's only 25

I don't think the top goes with the skirt at all and I'm not that keen on the skirt either. I am glad she is in something other then black but she needs to work out what goes with what she is 25 she should by now have her own style and now what works and what doesn't. The top doesn't even fit her properly not sure about those shoes with the outfit either.

I liked Beatrice's style, it's pretty and clearly suits her. Of course, there is more work to be done, but she has made progresses since her younger years.

The Creative London outfit was fresh and fashion-forward. Loved her bag!

Beatrice has no style. She needs the help of a good stylist to teach her what looks well and what doesn't work for her. Perhaps, she could use the folks from "What not to Wear". That isn't a joke. She has a fine shape, she either looks messy or strange. If that outfit is "Fashion Forward", I am at a loss. It looks like and old rumpled blouse and a skirt. The shoes are awful, too.

As you well know, fashion and style are largely subjective. That's the most important thing.

In my opinion, it's pretty rich to counsel someone else to go get a stylist if one's name isn't Chanel or Hepburn or Kors or Armani (i.e. tried and tested in the storms of international style).

For many people, pieces don't have to exactly match each other to go well together. Oftentimes, that's really boring.

A lot of times, the basics of fashion are:
- fit: not really a problem here, but she is going for a bohemian look, so the shirt is looser (tho the fit in the collar and wrists lets you know it's fit pretty well). Similarly, the skirt doesn't billow out
- length/proportion: this is actually a pretty good proportion for Beatrice. The boxiness of the shirt makes up for Beatrice's slight upper body, while the shape of the skirt makes her waist look pretty slender. The shoes' thin and curled straps actually elongate the leg, which is important because she isn't super-tall.
- color: works well with her coloring - in fact, the creaminess of the shirt offsets the bright colors of the skirt and prevents the whole thing from being overpowering--it's usually (though not always) best to keep with one focus piece. Her bag, as I mentioned before, is superb! Not matchy-matchy but very cute and picks up a jeweled purple, which I'm always a fan of--more importantly, jewel tones always work great for everyone, I think.

The outfit isn't traditional, but it isn't frumpy either. She's on trend, but more importantly, she's chosen pieces that are classic, too. Is this outfit perfect? No, but it's a sound getup for a night on the town at a charity event geared toward artsy types.

This was not the occasion for pillbox hats and white gloves.

Whether or not you like the outfit, it must be admitted that it doesn't fit her properly.
Look at the way the blouse pulls across the top, it's too tight.

This is an interesting point, but I went back to see the pics. In the red carpet, it seems like she really threw her shoulders back, and so the shirt pulled across the chest (slightly, as it wasn't really more than half an inch). The other pics, taken inside the party, are okay because she's not "posing."
