IMO Sarah looks unusually elegant in the pictures above.

Goodness! She was in my neck of the woods and I didn't even know. Darn!

I agree...she looks nice! I am so excited to see this movie. I keep watching the trailer on youtune and it looks good.

Can't wait for the scenes between Emily Blunt and Miranda Richardson!

The movie is excellent (IMO). I thought Miranda Richardson gave a great performance, and Emily Blunt is a wonderful Victoria. I will be always be glad I had a chance to attend the Canadian premiere.

It's funny how slowly the movie has been released across the world, though. I think the British premiere was almost a year ago.

I had planned to see the movie but when I went to my local theatre the third day after its release in Australia I was told that it had ended its run there as no one had been to see it so they pulled it for something else that people were watching.

Alot of events for the film, its a shame Beatrice can't attend some of them, or some of the cast.
It's rather odd how the premieres of this films have been spread so far out.

I was there (to work). I saw the Duchess but because I was far away I could not hear her that well (and the microphone wasn't too convincing either). I think that she was only there to open the fair, and left quickly afterwards. A very sensible thing to do because it was a ghastly spectacle. Old men with young women with more make up than the Mona Lisa, and all very ill mannered. This fair is really for the nouveau riche and although it is a cliché, money can't buy you class. Me and my collegues experienced that yesterday, we NEVER had such horrific guests... ever. I even got a lamp on my head, people were shouting, etc etc.

Marengo...a lamp on your head?!

Yes, you are correct. Money can't buy class. Usually the new people money are often the loudest and tackiest. With a look at me I have money attitude! That's why I think that royals will continue to be needed for their patronage and position. Movie stars come and go and reality stars are a joke.

Sarah does look great!

Yes, I'm wondering about that myself. Is that Amsterdam for "headache"??

I wish it was, but somebody seriously threw a complete lamp (not just the bulb) on my head. It was terribly crowded where we were working and those people are not used to wait. And since the younger crowd was where we were working, they were under the influence of more than just alcohol.

The duchess indeed looked elegant, esp. compared to other people attending. Most of them showed too much of everything, not minding their age. The dresscode was not clear either, most were in a gala dress, many in cocktail dress and some in a skirt+ jacket, like Sarah. She did seem a bit lost though. It was rather odd when she was announced, a big drum rol: .... and here is.... the duchess of York. People cheering and applauding as if they announced a pop singer. She did seem rather down to earth, good natured and unimpressed by the whole thing, which was nice to see among all those people who take themselves too seriously. Last year they 'hired' Pamela Anderson' for the opening btw.

I think I would have been like Sarah, not too impressed by that Millionaire Fair. But thanks for sharing your impressions.

Sarah has been giving interviews to promote The Young Victoria ahead of its opening in American theatres:

I just saw a short interview in a boulevard magazine on Dutch television, recorded just before the opening. The duchess was at the opening to get money for her charities. The organisation gave her funds for building schools. She said that events like these are good for her to meet people who can support these causes financially.

She also said that 2009 has been a horrible year for her, but that she managed to keep standing. When the interviewer asked what her favourite luxery was, she replied good health. Though she added that she too liked a nice watch etc.

She did not leave immidiately and walked around for an hour or so btw. She was very nice to her make up artist (a Dutchman who does all the celebrities), and the next day she even sent him a text message to thank him.

The interviewer is usually quite sceptical about royals but in this case he was very positive, as were all other people who commented in the item.
