But the truth is, I have never seen anyone saying "Catherine should take pointers from Maxima, Victoria, Mette-Marit, Madeleine, Letizia etc...". It's always been Mary mentioned. Thus I think the reason miche mentioned Mary.
Kate is herself, she does not need notes or pointers from Mary or any other Princess, she is doing great job herself.

Sorry for the rant, but I don't like comparisons. Each Princess is beautiful in her own way, each has her own features and we should stick to that. Saying that someone should take note on wardrobe or clothes from someone else is to me like saying that other person is better. And that's not nice.
Thank you, that's exactly what I was referring too. I guess I should have use a " " smiley after that sentence. Sarcasm fail on my part

the ''QUEEN'' of up-doos is definately Queen Silvia in her prime years, but she surprises me even sometimes now^^

each princess has their own style and fashion and thank god they're all diferent from each other but theres nothing wrong asking tips for something we are insecure about, even the most fashionable have hard time picking some clothes, acessories, hairstyles...sometimes. now from whom to ask? on stylists or someone mature and veteran on a particular hairstyle.

i would not mind AT ALL if all of them, including Kate and Mary were to ask tips for Queen Silvia's up-doos, she has the most hilarious to the most beautiful up-doos, but all original IMO.

either praise or complain on Kate's hair, it all lies in taste, her hair is beautiful, nice color and is healthy but she doesnt go for risks, when she does something diferent with it, even if its nothing special i go WEEE Amazing!!! because im not used to see her hair with a diferent kind of up-doo or other hairstyle.
like someone said, its just hair, it sometimes looks good and sometimes doesnt, Kate its not the only one to apply that, all the other princesses are included to praise and critisism **remenbering the awful alien up-doo from Mary on the last gala wedding**

But Kate does not seem to be insecure about her hair. So why the constant "she should ask Mary for tips on the hair" posts?

Kate may not be the only one that applies to, but she is the most criticized one for her hair for sure.

Catherine is also the most internationally famous of the bunch by a long shot.

well, about that we dont know, i cant read someone's mind yet. i was just speaking in general that asking for tips is not that a big of deal.

as NGalitzine said, she is by far the most famous and popular overseas. the more you're known, the more people speak about you (either good things, either bad things)

I think Kate is obsessive about her hair. It appears to be her "hidey" place.

BTW, the filler/form used in updos or buns or chignons is called a "rat."

You really think so?
I do think that she is proud of her beautiful hair, and probably William loves it too. But I think that we here at the Forums are more obsessed with it than she is.

You could be on to something there. Me? I just thought she was just incredibly vain in growing her hair ever longer and styling it first a la Farrah Fawcett and now in those big sausage curls. Unfortunately she more often looks like a picture of a child on an old chocolate box whose lost the obligatory big floppy satin ribbons. It seems like she was heading toward 30 and started frantically backpedaling and so we have little girl hair which seems to double as a place to hide. It all seems sort of desperate.

Now I wonder who called it a "rat" . . . had to be a man who'd never needed one or perhaps because he did . . . way back in the very old days!

Lets see, Kate , Mary, Letzia, and all the other Princesses have different parents. They all were raised in different countries. They all married different men. Now, why would anyone think they should be alike, or emulate each other. They are all individuals and should be liked and treasured for their own worth.

I agree, we don't know, thus I said "Kate seems". Irony unnecessary. I would assume you can't read minds.

Hair. Every woman hates her own hair. Every woman wishes her hair were someone else's (and that someone, wishes, herself for better hair).

Why do we as females, have a need to snark at others' hair? Honestly- we get what we get - it is genetic, with a small boost from styling products.

We celebrate breast cancer issues in October. That takes awareness and depth of spirit.

If only we could apply that same depth of spirit to the HAIR issue and learn to give up meaningless obsession with hair (an issue most of us can do little but bend toward our will) and instead focus on things all of us can lend a hand: wellness, family violence, bullying, poverty,etc.

Just saying...

Mary without a doubt had the worst hairstyle at the Luxembourg wedding. Not sure what 'look' she was trying for but it failed IMO.

True, but I was talking about the posters here. I agree, I should have been more precise.

Kate is as known by the posters here as any other Princess (if we can call that knowing) and yet, she still is the most criticized one for her hairstyle.

Thank you, my point exactly. I really don't like when I see posts like "this one should be taking tips from that one" or "this one should borrow that one's stylist"... Let them all be themselves.

I'm so relieved to read this comment . . . I have been looking at the photos of Mette-Marit at the wedding of Guillaume and Stephanie and quite frankly I could not understand her hair style . . . very strange. Actually it looks like a wig

Mette Marit is a very attractive woman, but I (my opinion!) think she needs to stop the bleaching.

What a thoughtful and meaningful post!!! Thank you for showing me not to dwell on silly things, we all should be thankful for what we do have. Bravo

I especially like this kind of hairstyle on Victoria - her hair pulled back, not too severely, and formed into a bun or a knot/chignon. It also looks really good with tiaras, brooches and other hair ornaments.

Not really a fan of Catherine's new hairstyle. I don't think it suits her.

Kate Middleton has bangs and is making international headlines

Kate Middleton's bangs may lead to new trend | Fox News

A change is as good as a rest? No thanks! Unadventurous Brits have had the same haircut their entire lives - and will NOT be changing it any time soon | Mail Online

The 'copy-Kates' will be queuing for Catherine's latest hairstyle me thinks haha

But it isn't a real fringe, is it? I mean, sure it was chopped off a bit on the sides but when I first heard she had gotten a fringe, I imagined an all-in, covering-the-forehead kind of thing, if you know what I mean
It looks decent on her, though I did prefer her hair before.

Victoria looks so regal. Kate just looks so...common.
