For me, Beatrice wore too many dark shades, perhaps if she had worn a white hat then I would've liked her outfit more. I do like her bag though, it's very nice.

Eugenie's outfit is nice, my favourite parts of her outfit are her skirt and hat. I'm not too sure about her top (mainly the sleeves). I also don't mind her clutch bag.

Out of the two, I think I prefer Eugenie's outfit.

I do like the planet Saturn hat/fascinators. Seriously.

I despair of them both... neither has the least concept of proportion, good colour or pattern that may suit their respective figures {if only Lady Gabriella would 'take them in hand'!}

If Lady Gabby took them in hand they'd end up dressing double their age.

Possibly... But they'd have 'style', and not look as though they shopped @ Oxfam...

Style is personal. As far as I'm concerned they look fine. I'd might not be a choice I would have made, but I've seen far worse. And it was not on them.

They looked fine to me although I do think Bea's stripes would have been better if the other way.

I do like them in solid colours more than these but they are looking much better than they have done in the past.

Of the two looks, I prefer Eugenie's, but I'd prefer them both in solid colours. Horizontal stripes are not flattering to any but very thin bodies.

I think the concoction on Bea's head represents a first step towards wearing an ordinary hat.

To you they might look bad but I don't see how anyone could think they look like they've shopped in a charity shop.

I really like Eugenie's coat. Does anyone know who designed it?

But why would such a curvy girl wear horizontal stripes?

Not a good look for anyone, let alone someone with a fuller figure.

I really like both these looks. I thought the hats were a better match than usual (and I don't mean just color - these were great hats) and that I could understand what they were trying to do.

Another gasp and oh no reaction to their outfits. Yes, Bea's is the worst, ugly color and stripes. Neither should wear horizontal stripes, especially curvy Eugenie. they are not tall enough for that.

They don't. They looked like they shopped at Wal-Mart. Worse, that would be cheap. These girls spend a lot of money, and whomever designs this junk may have never seen them. What you put on paper and on people, the people who are wearing it, is the difference. They are too full figured to wear this stuff. There are many things that look very nice on fuller figured women. It has nothing to do with size, it has to do with brains and style.

I think it just looks good on her despite the broad stripes; if Eugenie were wearing Bea's dress I'd definitely have a different opinion with those narrow stripes.

BLEAH. I'm disappointed. Both outfits don't do a thing for them.

Eugenie looks absolutely adorable. I love her in horizontal stripes! Her hat, her jacket, everything is very nice.

Beatrice, on the other hand...

Hmm, quite agree. I think one overly conservative lamb-dressed-as-mutton doyen per family is one too many!

I love that the are constantly pushing the envelope to find their own personal style and that they are brave enough to not give a tinker's damn about what we think.

In general I think you might just have a point about the stripes, but agree that they are definitely on a positive learning curve.

Yay, we are taking the training wheels, aka the very unfascinating Fascinators, off!

Indeed, and most people seem to think Beatrice and Eugenie have both brains and style. It's all a matter of opinion and completely trashing someone's designs is rather mean.
