Sarah is in her annual skiing holidays at the moment,
here's a little article about it :

"Fergie and ex slope off
By Greig Box Turnbull 07/01/2008

Sarah Ferguson was getting close to old flame Paddy McNally yesterday on a ski holiday - back where their romance began.
Fergie, 48, and the Formula 1 advertising tycoon, 65, took to the slopes at Verbier, Switzerland, where McNally has a home.
The pair lived together in the luxury resort before Fergie married Prince Andrew in 1986.
Widower Paddy, whose wife died from cancer in 1980, and Fergie always stayed close pals." ------> Link

I think that too. Probably because I'm only a couple years older than them, and compared to people I know their age, they don't seem really independent or confident (also not as rebellious, so I guess it could be a good thing.) It's not just their dress although at times it's that too, it's the things I read about them. Even though they are active in glamorous social circles, Beatrice and Eugenie for some reason strike me as being kind of naive and sheltered. In one way, "old" for their age; in another way, maybe "young."

Sarah was a guest on the TODAY show here in the US this morning as part Weight Watchers spokesperson. It is to promote a new book by WW that Sarah has written the forward for. There is a video clip of her appearance on their website MSNBC - The Today Show - Matt Lauer, Meredith Vieira, Ann Curry, Al Roker, Natalie Morales - News, Celebrities, Recipes, Video, Tips and Advice, Entertainment and Live Concerts -- MSNBC.com Front Page. I didn't see an article accompaying the piece otherwise I would have provided a more direct link. Can't say I was impressed by the hosiery. Sadly, someone should have prepped her on the guests accompanying her--as she didn't know some things about the lady. Considering she is Weight Watchers spokesperson it would have looked alot better if she actually knew the woman's story beforehand.

Sarah also discussed the recent comments written in the media about her daughter's appearance and weight.

I think Sarah is a self-serving phoney! Whatever she needs to do to get Her name out there and to keep Herself in the spotlight, she'll do. I didn't see the show today but I heard about it and even die-hard Sarah-phobes said she was not prepared. Hello???? She's all about herself whether she realizes it or not. And no way is Andrew still in love w her. I think he's just a decent guy who did the decent thing by being kind to the mother of his children when the rest of the world was not. I def think if Sarah could weasle her way back into the RF and all that allows, she'd do it in a heartbeat. This woman annoys me to no end!

Thanks, Ice. I agree, those stockings have to go. What was she thinking?

Those stockings are actually the new fad.

Stockings like that are actually an old fad, too. You just have to be old enough to remember them. Those rotten lines never sat straight on my legs, so I went for the diamond patterned ones 'cos it didn't matter with them.

Come to think it, Sarah's probably old enough to have worn them last time they were "in". Maybe she saved them.

Sarah's Stockings

I adore the Duchess's stockings! If only she'd worn heels with them.
I've seen her wearing them before to a fashion show with heels and they looked very, very glamorous!

But I am a big fan of the Duchess's legs - they're such an elegant feature! Long may she show them off!

Oh my, not those dreaded tights again! They are not even fashionable!

Roslyn, perhaps you could send your old Diamond Patterned tights/stockings to Sarah, even they would be an improvement!

And they'd probably look really good on a 20-something with nice legs. But not for someone Sarah's age or shape.

The tights amuse me because Sarah is quite capable of dressing simply but stylishly...I've seen her in dark suits and blouses and things with a little bit of extra detail, but nothing outrageous.

But it's like she can never stuff that colourful side of her personality away completely. It has to show up somewhere, and I have no doubt she's figured out she has nice legs so she figures she's going to show them off.

I think they made her legs look heavier and don't suit. The coat also weighed her down--she should've worn one or the other. Those may be cute but they don't really work for her. She's a fun person so of course its bound to come out, but a nice handbag or some bold jewelry would give a much better effect.

It is too bad that she chose those unfortunate-looking stockings. They do not flatter her at all. I like her coat, though. The lining gives it a fun touch.

I find myself wanting to point out to her that the tights/stockings are laddered and offer her some that are less likely to run.

Frighteningly, I can remember something similar from the 60's.

I totally thought the same thing, Russophile! I've not seen these things anywhere--oh, that's right, except on the Duchess of York--a fashion icon

Any news on Sarah's relationship with the man she was seeing over the Christmas holidays?
