Thank God Menarue I was thinking of having my eyes checked........She looked a bit "under the weather" I agree.

Just thought I'd pop in to see if anything changed...and it hasn't.

I hope Sarah had a great birthday dinner with her daughters.

Picture 4 is the best one IMO.

I think we are all going to have to agree that Sarah is not the most elegant public figure, nor is she the best dressed. So my comments about her looking good should have had a "relative" condition attached. Compared to what she has looked like in a lot of recent pictures, I do maintain Sarah looked a lot better. Also, some of the pictures were taken at the end of the meal. The dress may have been crumpled, the hair may have been all over the place, but at least we didn't have masses of cleavage, and a particularly tight dress on display!

Muriel I agree. Still if one knows the photographers will be outside clicking away, one can at least choose a fabric that does not make one look like she slept in these clothes.

Poor Sarah needs a gay friend like Charlotte had in 'Sex and the City" series. He could choose clothes for her, snap at the salespeople and tell her what looks good and what should be burnt!
Unless she does not care how she looks.

Also noticed there was no sign of Mr Fish Fingers anywhere!
I love Japanese and I'm way too cheap to order the Wagyu beef. Maybe one day, if someone is taking me out.

I really don't like redheads in black; I think it washes them out.

well in order to find something positive about Sarah, I find that I like her hair when she has bangs (fringe). It really softens her face up and does not make her look so hard.
As for her dress, a size larger and maybe tailored to "her" would have been much better than getting the size of the rack that fits but not well.
And as for Mr. Fish Fingers, he was there, but I saw an article the other day that said the relationship was kaput and that's why Sarah was in the back of the car not looking so happy when the press took her picture. Oh well. Maybe he was just being nice and had nothing else to do that evening than have dinner with her and the girls.

I don't think she looks all that bad. She looks a bit rough about the face but that could just be genetics. I'd heard she had a few nips and tucks over the years, whether that's true or not who knows, but she obviously hadn't had much work done lately. I think we as a society are just used to seeing these plastic phoney-looking "celebs" who pathetically try to recapture their "youth" so when we see a woman who is actually allowing herself to age it's almost shocking.

I am glad you mentioned the Mr Fish Fingers. I thought I read he has a relationship with a steady girlfriend and the one with Sarah had ended. Then I thought I may have dreamt of it. Glad you also read it.
Hope Sarah had a lovely birthday and many happy returns.

Sarah said that in a recent interview. You didn't imagine it. It's the same interview in which she says that she had to separate from Andrew in order to make money because as the "second son" he didn't have enough of his own.

To detour from the discussion of Sarah's fashion sense (or lack thereof), last week Sarah opened a charitable foundation for children in the United Arab Emirates. It's called "Sarah Selects" and is in partnership with a UK company, "Select Property." Response Source | Press Releases - Sarah Ferguson, Duchess of York Selects Aquitainia to Launch her Children's Charity in UAE with UK based Select Property | Journalist enquiries, press releases and more!

I read the article in which Sarah said she left Andrew to make money because he didn't make enough as the second son. It doesn't make much sense, but in a way I understand where she's coming from. While in the royal family, Sarah, as we all know, overspent hugely--but she couldn't make money of her own to cover her debts. To be fair to her, I think she's the type of person who is extravagant in both directions--has trouble restraining her spending, but also works incredibly hard. Being in the royal family encouraged her to spend money but stopped her from making it with the same fervour. At least being an independent working woman allows her to bring in as much money as she spends...I think that's something of what she meant when she made that rather dumb-sounding statement about her split from Andrew.

While I think Sarah looks a bit peaked and washed out (probably due to her lack of make-up), I am thrilled to see she is wearing a more age-appropriate skirt; nice style, flair and Below the Knee! It's so much more flattering to her than the too-tight numbers yanked up to mid-thigh. Thanks, Ice.

I have to agree with you on that statement, Bella. Can't say that I much care for the print, however, but I shouldn't be so picky...

I like this outfit as well. Although--I hesitate to say this because it's sooooo picky--higher heels would be better.

Thanks Mermaid.......Sometimes I wonder if too much information is just that or something we really need to know. I am sure Andrew liked to read in the papers that his ex thinks he is broke

One thing I do have to say, Sarah needs to get a little more picky as to who she poses with....(scroll down to second photo about a third way down). Social politeness is one thing, next to the Frosty the Jailbird is beyond the call of duty.
