While Eugenie is a complete desaster, Bea's coat is not bad but too old for her. The hat ... horrific

Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie very interesting and unusual today. May have been more stylish. Beatrice, such as make-up horror movie. Cinderella's step-sisters are like.

Cinderella's step-sisters

That is exactly what my husband said when he saw them. "They look like Cinderella's stepsisters." They appear to be desperate for attention. It may be subconscious, but there is just no other explanation for those hats. It seems the apples have not fallen far from the tree. I suppose they could have negative fashion sense, and no one around them decent enough to give them an honest opinion.

I thought both of these sisters could have done a lot better in terms of their fashion choices. While Beatrice's dress was ok (the tan one) I thought it was a bit boring for her age. I HATED her hat. It looked really stupid. Eugenie's outfit just was off in every way. I thought the colors were pretty, but the pattern on the top was too loud, and the fit of the top part too tight. Her skirt was too poofy and the asymmetrical hem was just sloppy looking in my opinion. I didn't care for her hat either.

I could have lived with it if it hadn't been to tight on top and had those bows on the front, holy unflattering

I agree MRSJ. A less tight fit, no bows, and a more streamlined skirt and Beatrice's outfit would have been more flattering, IMO. And a different hat too.

At first glance, they didn't look so out of place in the crowd. Then when the camera focused just on them, first of all, Eugenie just totally looked so garish (and unhappy really), especially the makeup, that one almost didn't notice B's hat!!

I really think an outside pov, as from a stylist or a good friend...or a mom with any eye for style must be lacking. I think it's sad, as the press really does make fun of them. Since I see them only rarely, I am left with the impression they are quite unattractive, to be fair, if someone can refer me to pics of them on a better days, that'd be great.

B. did look nice at the queens dinner the other day in the over the shoulder sparkly number

Except for the hat, I liked Princess Beatrice's ensemble. What bothered me was her eyes. She looked like she was either crying in the car or else slept in her eye-makeup. It must have been just too much eye-liner, but it made her eyes look rather hollow.

Interestingly, the American press is saying that the sisters did this on purpose for paybacks against the royal family in not inviting their mother. While I doubt that is true, you have to wonder why they would spend so much money and work so hard to make themselves look a part of a freak show! I do think it would have been a nice gesture for William to invite Sarah Ferguson but I completely understand how her inexplicable behavior in the last several months may not have made that possible.

Beatrice and Eugenie had too much makeup on (a little less would have been better) as this was very noticeable. The headpiece that Beatrice wore made me think of antlers or reindeer when I saw a clip from the back. It blocked her face somewhat and when you looked at her, this is what you noticed was her head piece (I wouldn't call it a hat, but a head piece).

I loved the color of Eugenie's dress and liked the hat she was wearing.

I agree with the others here - Beatrice's outfit was quite nice except for the hat. What was she thinking with the hat?! There does seem to be a trend in Britain towards over-the-top, fussy fascinators and hats, but I just don't understand why Beatrice would have thought that hat looked good. Then again, she wore that butterfly hat to Peter and Autumn's wedding (I think it was Peter and Autumn's).

I didn't like Eugenie's outfit - too colourful and fussy - but I mostly don't like Eugenie's clothes. I don't think Beatrice, on the other hand, dresses as badly as the tabloids make out. Except for that hat!

I saw another picture of Beatrice (closer look at the headpiece) and it made me also think of something a Las Vegas Show Girl would wear as part of her costume in a dance number. The headpiece that Beatrice wore would be fine in a fashion show, a costume party, or worn dancing or on stage but not at a church wedding. A little too over the top, I'm afraid.

She wasn't the only one who wore what I would call headpieces instead of a hat. Some of them would have been better off not wearing a hat at all. But tradition dictates that some type of hat or headpiece be worn.

I've read that both hats were Phillip Treacy - what was he thinking? Both outfits are not bad (and Valentino and Vivienne Westwood) but definitely needed a different millinery treatment.

I am in the minority, but I will admit that I quite like the outrageous hats they wore to the wedding. You can tell they have fun with fashion.

Has anyone found photos of them dressed for the evening reception?

The headpiece that Beatrice wore made me think that someone took a massive door knocker from a palace fortress door and asked her to wear it on her forehead. Unbelievably horrible choice in hat attire for a historic wedding. Perhaps this type of get-up would be OK for Ascot, but not for such an important wedding.

When Beatrice was seated behind the Queen in the cathedral, she tipped her head forward, looking down and her eye makeup became more noticeable because light was not on her face. She looked as if she had two enormous black eyes.

Eugenie- color of outfit good, but that is about all.
Beatrice- there are no words in the English language, what was she thinking?

I've heard B&E described as Cinderella's Ugly Stepsisters. They certainly are at the top of the running for worst dressed guests. B's downfall is the tonnage of eye make-up. She's such a pretty young thing - it's not necessary!
