The dress on Beatrice is a pretty colour but a very unflattering shape and way too tight in some areas. I don't get the jewellery she is wearing that cuff goes with nothing and the necklace doesn't go either. I think she thought I'm wearing a gold hat so I will wear gold jewellery and gold wedges. It is styled all wrong and what is with those childish curls in her hair they don't go with anything it's her usual mess. Eugenie must of invested in trench coats this year and since the first one didn't flatter her none of them have. Both these girls need someone honest enough to tell them when they aren't looking great. It doesn't take a genius to see the bad fit on Beatrices dress and the girl can afford someone to let it out for her. I'm having flashbacks to Sarah at Ascot.

I think that some of the problem is that current "on trend" designers simply have no idea how to design for a woman who is shaped like an adult human female and not a skeletal mannequin. Most of the current designs I've seen look best on those who are extremely tall, slender, long-legged and with minimal busts and no hips. The fashion world would like us all to believe that that is the normal female shape. However, most adult women I know DO have both busts and hips and we're not 5'10" and 100 lbs. That goes for those of us who can stand to lose a few pounds and those who are a sensible, healthy weight. Shopping off-the-rack, as most of us (and a lot of the young royals) do, can be a real challenge - finding stylish clothes that fit properly can be nearly impossible. It's not enough to take the slim size zero and simply "blow it up" to a size ten or twelve. That leaves no room for the bust or hips - the shape needs to be adjusted for the curves as well. Even my very slim daughter (5'6", 105 lbs turn-sideways-and-she-disappears) has trouble finding clothes as she has 36" hips and a 36" ribcage from running: jeans that would fit her around her waist don't make it past her hips and those that fit her hips gap so badly at the waist that not even a belt can help. As for those of us nearer the size twelve/fourteen end of the spectrum, forget finding a dress that doesn't bulge from being too tight on the bust and hips or doesn't look like a shapeless sack.

Princesses Eugenie and Beatrice need to find designers who understand how to dress women with curves, if they exist. Neither is overweight but Eugenie, in particular, hasn't yet found a designer who can celebrate her curves and show just what a beautiful young woman she is. Beatrice gets it right a little more often but she too suffers from the current "fashions". Unfortunately, I fear the only way for the York girls to shine would be to buy bespoke clothes more often, but that would just give ammunition to their critics...

I've been tall, long-legged and thin; tall, long-legged, athletic; and tall, long-legged and medically obese. Trust me, I have never looked anything more than "that's flattering on you" when I was overweight. You can't just blame designers. You have to blame society in general. When we quit craving thin mannequins, designers will follow.
And this is off-topic.

IMO this issue has nothing to do with designers making dresses for tall skinny people ... sorry, that is just an excuse. The plain fact is the dress didn't fit ANYWHERE, not across the back, not in the waist, not in the hips, not on the butt and not across the thighs. All it needed was a larger size and then have it taken in by a good seamstress. My guess is Beatrice and Eugenie, say "Oh that's my size and don't even try things on. Not all dresses/sizes are made the same. The person buying/wearing them has to get smart, look in the mirror. The thing is with this dress on Beatrice .... it fits NOWHERE!!!!

I agree; that's why the press is fascinated with anything Kate wears, and why Diana was a fashion icon. It's entirely due to the body type, which shows clothes to advantage.

But even they looked their best in bespoke clothing because of the fit. BUt the royals can't get everything bespoke; they'd be criticized so much!

I read somewhere ( I forget where) that most women should get alterations on just about everything they buy. Of course. most of us don't have the time or the money to do that and have to get by as best we can.

I quite like this outfit - the fringed jacket is very chic. Just a pity she is wearing black to a midsummer event particularly as the weather in the UK is very mediterranean right now.

The York girls seems to have unlimited clothing budgets, quite unlike the more senior royals who are often seen recycling their clothes. It is rare to see Beatrice or Eugenie repeat their expensive designer clothes.

I'm not a fan of the gold patterns on her jacket, but apart from that she looks nice and appropriate for the event.

Yes they do, in fact they also share their wardrobes with each other!

Hats are harder to spot and, while I couldn't find one in a hurry, I know they have shared them. I also think they wear a lot of tops and skirts that are seen as dresses and get mixed, matched and even shared quite often.

I am not doubting that they do reuse some of their clothes and share some as well, but my sense is, they spend an awful lot on clothes and reuse a lot less than they probably could. Might this be because their parents may not keeping as close a watch on what they spend their monies on as they probably could? Is their mother encourage them to live like Princesses?

I don't think that's gold patterns, I think it's skin showing through the open mesh parts of the jacket.

I really don't think that's a subject for discussion as how they spend their money and how their parents watch the spending or not watch is nobody's business but their own. Other than Andrew, the family are private citizens.

I think that any adult who possesses, and uses, an HRH handle these days is bound to have their doings examined in more detail than anyone who is strictly a private citizen, and they have no right to complain about it. The privilege of being a Royal Highness in this day and age comes with some burdens, including the curiosity of those beneath you about your life and how you spend your money.

Now this is a really cute outfit on her, the blouse with the necklace is perfect and the skirt with the black belt, again perfect with the shoes and purse. What happened PB, this is a cute outfit for a young lady and you look wonderful in it. Keep it up!

It's the best I've seen her in awhile. She isn't clashing and it's a simple blouse. I like the shoes and the skirt is fun.
