THere's no way Sophie can compete with younger, taller and higher-ranked princesses (we all know who they are!) and she didn't try. SHe looked perfect at the wedding. She didn't outshine the bride (actually, no one did, Victoria looked fantastic), she was there as a member of the BRF and i believe she dressed appropriately for the occasion. SHe's not so young anymore, so thank goodness she doesn't do the 'mutton dressed as lamb' thing. Admittedly i'd like to see her a little more adventurous (although she's quite adventurous when it comes to hats!) but that's the way she is. Understated. Elegant. Appropriate. And stealing no one's thunder. Including Prince Edward. And don't you like the way whenever they're together, they lean in towards each other? Body language says they have a very happy and contented marriage. Not a whiff of scandal in all the years they've been together (since 1993 i think).

She doesn't have any jewels aside from what we've seen her wearing. The Queen isn't opening the vaults for her. If she'd be giving the real heavy-duty stuff out on loan, it would be to Camilla. Sophie is the wife of the youngest son of the monarch, hardly a position of great importance. If she was married to Charles or Andrew, maybe.

Maybe when Charles is King, she might get something to wear for the coronation or formal events that occur afterward, but we'll have to wait and see.

I agree EllieCat well put she is and has always tried to be understated so though I would be happy to see her in clothing that suited her age group I have always liked her and think she is someone and the style of Countess the Queen likes. She and Edward seem like a nice couple.

I agree with your assessment of her understated way of dressing. She never seems to be flashy or showoff-ish.
I like her modesty and the way she always dresses appropriately for the occasion.

I like the red on Sophie, it's a very good color for her. She looks so chic with her sunglasses on.

Sophie looks nice. Her white and black pearl drop necklace is pretty as well.

Stylish sunglasses for Sophie. This shade of red really works great for her. Nice overall look.

I think she has recycled pieces from other outfits. She looks nice.

You're right, she has. The white dress is from when she attended a ballet in Berkshire in May.

The red jacket she has worn a few times.

She has gotten a lot of use out of the red jacket.
Maybe we should refer to her as "The Countess of Recycling".

I think most of the senior Windsors (HM, Camilla and Sophie) do an excellent job of recycling, without the clothes looking old or tired. I think Anne is the exception here, as her clothes do look old and tired.

That's because most of her clothes are old and need to be retired.

Countess of Recycling, haha!
I like the red and white better than the beige and white.

lol - I can understand her recycling during these hard times with the recession and all. I like that she mixes the pieces to make the outfit look new.
