Now, THAT dress, the seafoam green in the Instagram photo, that would have been lovely for the wedding. I didn't like the dress or hat she wore today. The dress was too clingy for her somewhat athletic stride.

…. but I did like her in the nude pumps. A good look for her there.

An A line skirt, less wrapped, would have been more flattering and still coped with the wind. Weathered décolletage on show not good. Hat ghastly, not at all graceful. Drape dreadful. I could go on.......

The evening dress looks better than the daytime effort--at least from what we can see in the photo. The makeup looks as though it was put on with a heavy hand, but that might just be the lighting.

Nice color but it is almost the only nice thing to her. The hat looks like a flying machine. The dress is blah and does not fit her well.An appropriate lining would help to structure the skirt especially for her body. And in top of that she is sweetting. She should know this issue and wear something inside. The mark of sweat is awful. Was it so hot outside? Or dress is fully polyester?
Sometimes I wonder where these ladies buy their outfits.
Zara woman has better fabrics an fitting

How about we retitle this thread: “Pile on Sarah, Duchess of York”.

Sarah looks lovely there seems to be a green theme and it really suits the former duchess.

The dress actually fits. Sarah is however a curvy woman and does not fit the standard of stick thinness that was decided to be attractive. I like that she embraced her curves and is wearing something that shows them off instead of hiding them.

Her evening look was lovely. Not a fan of the day dress, especially with that unflattering hat.

Her daytime look almost could have been something worn in the 80s but with the shoulder pads cut off, the hat especially!

That said she has a lovely smile on a her daughters special day.

The evening outfit seemed much better and her hair was 1000% better.

Sorry, I just don’t have it in me to criticize a near-elderly woman on her daughter’s wedding day. She was suitably and attractively attired, and not every nit needs to be picked. Have a heart, ladies.

I agree. Some of this commentary is horrible and offensive. It’s ok not to like it. I’ve liked other things she’s worn better but I still think she looked nice overall.

Sarah is NOT "nearly elderly". If she is, I'm half dead.

I honestly though she looked wonderful for a woman her age, and frankly, history.

She looked like a healthy, normal woman of her generation wearing what I thought was a very flattering dress. I like the color. I thought the hat was totally in her wheelhouse. I was really happy for her and how she looked.

No one stays 30 years old forever. Not everyone is a stick figure. Not everyone wants to wear billowing clothes to conceal how the body changes with age. Not everyone finds curviness disgusting. What the heck is wrong with wearing what you like on your body?

I think some commenters confuse what they like with what is appropriate or what they would wear in the situation. It's not our choice. And body shaming looks bad on every type of person who does it. JMO.
