Sarah just looks bad and that outfit is awful and not for her. Glad Eugenie has found a role for herself hopefully her boyfriend can move their with her now it seems more like a permanent move. I don't get the hand holding either the girls are way too old for it and Sarah isn't frail.

I think it's very beautiful that they hold hands... It means they have a deep relationship with their mother...

Perhaps mom had a few drinks at lunch and needed to be steered. I realize that adult females holding hands is very much a cultural thing and I have been to countries where it is not unusual - not sure it's the norm in Britain, though, it still strikes me as odd which I attribute to my own cultural bias.
The dress w/ the pink diagonal fabric - could some one explain to me what there is to like about that? The pink diagonal part is 3+ inches longer than the rest of the dress (and probably the most flattering length for Sarah) and intersects the horizontal line where the black and white fabrics meet and then the jacket is too short for the rest of the outfit and creates yet another horizontal line unrelated to the rest. I just don't get it.

Besides seeing mothers hold little kids hands I haven't seen that many mothers in Britain or most other countries holding hands with their 20 something year old daughters. It's something Sarah seems to like to do and it just looks odd. She is a grown woman they are grown women and it doesn't look cute it looks weird. I doubt anyone can explain that outfit Sarah is wearing. I doubt it was meant to be worn with a jacket like that. It doesn't look good on Sarah at all but what else is new? She isn't exactly known for her good taste in clothes. And it looks like she is back to not wearing makeup some women can get away with that but Sarah can not. She hasn't aged well.

Sarah does look a mess, doesn't she! That dress does not suit her. I doubt it would suit many people. Unfortunately I think the taste in clothing and sense of style has been inherited, too, though at least Eugenie has co-ordinated her bag and shoes with her outfit. The skirt needs to be longer, though.

Are they holding hands so much as linking arms? If they were strolling down the street for lengthy periods of time holding hands I would think it looks odd, but they are linking arms as well and I've seen lots of mother/daughter or friends combos doing that. It's something people sometimes do when sharing a piece of news or a secret.

Why did Eugenie wear a pool cover-up to work?

I like the closeness Sarah displays with her children, both of whom seem to be very secure with their parents. That relationship is laudable.

That said, what an absolutely wretched dress for Sarah. That pink slash is absolutely bizarre and is totally unflattering. Sarah's in very good shape, she's keeping the weight off and has good legs, but outfits like this do NOTHING for her. She looked fabulous at the Children in Crisis art event from a month or two ago, so she has it in her, but not in a junk dress like that.

I thought this too. They look more like they're linking hands and exchanging gossip than anything else.

Shoot the designer!

Really, no one would look good in that dress. Not even Kate. Maybe Diana could pull it off, but only because she could pull off just about anything.

I suspect that Diana and Catherine would each have declined to wear the thing. Just one of many 'what was she thinking' moments I have w/ Sarah.

In regards to Eugenie and the hockey stick article, there's a video in the article of her going to dinner w/ some men, one of whom is very tall - is that her BF w/ her? They're in New York, I think, based on the protection officer's accent.

That style of semi-casual dress is very popular for the younger crowd in the US these days, at least as far as I can tell from the stores. I see it all the time, even at church.

Why shoot the designer? Why not criticise the 50-something fashion victim buying a dress designed for somebody 30 years younger than her.

Princess Beatrice is chic in monochrome cheering on pal Sam Branson as he begins gruelling charity challenge | Mail Online


Can't decide about her look here; the dress is cute but something seems off. Maybe it's the fit? The top doesn't look quite right.

Sounds like she is still close to the Branson clan.

Beatrice is 26 today. Don't see her becoming a Royal Bride for a few years though.

That dress doesn't fit properly and I think it's too busy it's a weird pattern I also think it's a little short for her.
