Click on "larger image" on the page that's linked here, and you'll see Sarah in her throw. The story about the cloak is on the page.

I'm sure one of you can track this down - if it's indeed true. Thanks.

Too bad Sarah doesn't do something else with her hair as it is really getting very thin and straggly. Maybe a good cut and something with abit more style to give it some Pizazz!

I don't have a problem with her hair, but I think she should have worn a dress that covered her upper arms a bit. I dunno . . . I have a thing about exposing fleshy upper arms. I know, that sounds really shallow.

If the sale of these 'throws' isn't going to charity, then I am absolutely appalled that Sarah should use her royal connections in this way. Advertising language such as ' crown' and 'royal purple velvet' [by the way it's made of polyester]

There's a very, very fine line with a lot of the things that Sarah does; and I think that she's crossed it.

Thanks a lot for the link, giov

Here's one more from the after party:

After Party - Grand Opening of Atlantis, The Palm

The dress looked much better with a scarf as you can also see on
the following pic :

Sarah Ferguson watches the unprecedented pyrotechnics and illumination
at the Grand Opening of Palm Jumeirah and its flagship Atlantis, the
Palm Resort at the Palm Jumeirah Island on November 20, 2008 in Dubai.

------> Pic

And I've found the following pic I really liked, it definitely does not
show Sarah from her best (back) side, but it shows her energy and joy
of living, that's really nice

----> Arrival pic

Thanks for the photos/links everyone. These pics are more flattering than some of the others in recent memory. I was also wondering if she was invited to Dubai on a personal note or on a paid one.

Honestly people. With guests such as Robert DeNiro and Richard Branson in attendance, do you really think that the organizers needed to pay Sarah to attend and "beef up" the glitz list?

I also think that the Duchess might want to go on a diet again. From the side shot in the evening dress she looks heavy. I know from personal experience that it is hard to maintain your weight.

I read an interview recently with Sarah in "Hello Canada" where she frequently referred to her "princess daughters". she also has developed a knack for talking about Andrew; "we are divorced to each other instead of from each other" it almost makes it sound as if they are still together. It's amazing after being divorced for 12 years that she is still able to get so much mileage out of once being a member of the RF.

Well maybe they still are 'together'. Certainly they have nothing but pleasant things to say about one another.

I wonder how much longer people are going to be willing to pay her for endorsements, speeches, appearances, etc? As more time goes on, William and Harry get married, and her own daughters continue to grow up, people won't be paying as much attention to her. As is it now in the USA, she doesn't get much publicity. Is she going to be able to make as much money?

If she's in less demand as a personality in years to come, I'd think that her fees for speaking engagements/personal appearances will decrease; and her products wouldn't sell as well either. Will the upcoming generation even know who she is, for example?

I think that she will try and make sure that she is known for as long as she can, Mermaid1962. Trouble is, it may be on the heels of her princess daughters which is sad, imo. I truly hope that I am wrong in my assumption.

Sadly enough, I think that you're probably right.

I am finding it difficult to know which of her various activities are for charity.

I'm sure the Sarah, Duchess of York Charities and Patronages thread will help you out.

My take is, as of others posted above, that as long as there is a demand for her and there are checks being written for her appearances and products she will continue advertising herself. I have to admit that I admire her for at least working at it. I doubt the next generation will know how to navigate the stormy waters and earn a paycheck.
Her charitable projects are also impressive. So if she can go on why not?
