Think your right it would explain a lot

My definition of tweak is modify...alter...change...not accessorize. It's not unusual that designers would lend well-known women clothing. And since neither woman ever seems to wear the same thing twice*, even things that are very flattering or suitable or well-fitted, it's an educated guess on my part, a guess that I stand by.

I agree about "tweak". I think your theory sounds reasonable, but the idea raises questions about this business of designers lending clothes that I hadn't thought about before. It is not a subject I know much about.

I would have thought that designers would make their clothes up in the tiny sizes that their models wear on the catwalk, and neither of the York girls is in that category, so how does it work? Do the designers make up some of their clothes in larger sizes specially for certain women and lend them out to these women and then take them back? I didn't think designers of the sort who would be lending out clothes sold their creations in larger sizes, so what do they do with them when they get them back? Perhaps it all just done as part of the designer's advertising budget and they are just destroyed. And if we are not talking about hugely expensive top notch designer creations, surely Beatrice and Eugenie would be able to buy a few of them and would not have to just borrow them. I have no idea, and I'm now curious.

I think if designers lend clothes, they make sure they look very well on the wearer. By and large, neither of these girls dress well. I assume it is their taste and lack of mirrors. Once and a while they get it right. It really wouldn't matter, except for all the PR.

I had to bring this over here: Fergie hits LouLous with daughters Princess Beatrice and Eugenie | Daily Mail Online

I had to because I'm going to say something I don't recall having said before. I think both Beatrice and Eugenie look fabulous in these evening outfits. Yep, both of them! Eugenie especially. And if Sarah's dress wasn't satin, and wasn't too tight, I'd say she looked pretty good, too, but it is too tight, and whenever she wears satin I am reminded of Belle Watling.

Wow there are all sorts of wrong in that dress Sarah is wearing and I don't think the fact it's too tight or made of satin are the worse things about it. It is just an ugly dress they were going out to dinner. Eugenie looks good and so does Bea.

The style/shape of the dress is quite nice on her...the color is blah and does nothing for her at all. Nor do her shoes.

The dress is God awful. if she bought it at Walmart, it is still awful. If you are a designer, wouldn't you want to show off your wears at their best. Whomever dresses the girls, ladies, should all be shot.

It's not the worst thing I've seen Eugenie wear, but that's the best I can say about it.

Apart from the shooting bit I agree with your comments. Every once in a while the girls manage to pick the right outfit and look good but most of it's sadly a miss

I actually thought the Ascot dress was fresh, summery and fun. It was age appropriate. It's a bit boho, but I liked that about it as well. White with a bit of blue in the heat always looks good to me.

I like it as well. The skirt is slimmer than her usual upside-down-tulip-skirt shape. It's a big long for a young woman her age, but that seems to be the "in" hemline now judging from what I'm seeing online. Besides, the eye is drawn toward her and not to the haggard-looking Sarah. Bonus!

She reminds me of the Queen Mother when she was young, especially in the first pic.
