I'm with you on that one! I usually don't like her shoes!

Next to that I would really love to see Mabel got rid of the bows (for herself and little Luana) and the dark lipstick.
And W-A shouldn't wear that hideous shirt he wore at the polo game in Argentina (nor something like it...). The same goes for the very ugly red or orange trousers I saw him wearing during various events.

Hard chin? Aww. But it's so cute. Yes, bring out the eyes. Not literally, of course. Her shineyness? Hmm. I thought that was a good thing. Maybe I didn't think of her being too shiney. I don't know.

Yes there is a special lady named ingrid sue who comes to all the palaces before an engagment is announced and spreads her fairydust and voila we have a princess. All the royal ladies get makeovers. They have too. They need to play the part of a royal and looking like one is a big part of it. Some transformations are obvious, like Camilla and Mary, others are not, like Letizia. Leitizia was in the public eye before getting married and was already established. She didnt really need a makeover.

Who needs to change what???

Princess Haya needs to change pretty much everything :o

Rania is attractive, but you're right Lizz70, she's not stunning, I think the old addage less is more probably applies here, I think she looks better when she's toned down a bit.

Poor Sophie Rhys Jones, whoever her stylist is needs to be sacked! Nowdays, even Camilla looks more stylish than her

Am I attractive, I totally agree with you about poor Sophie, Countess of Wessex. She is a young woman who could look so much more stylish and 'with it'. we all know her husband has big tantrums and doesn't like it if he is not the centre of attention, so maybe she does it so she doesn't outshine him.

Rania wears too much makeup and i think she is just gorgeous with a whole lot less. That sort of glossy 'Vogue front cover' look in makeup and clothes is to much and i feel sometimes detracts from the work she is trying to do. This is one of the reasons she is so popular in the West a) she spends so much time here b)is always on some magazine cover or other and c) because of the way she looks. People didn't rant and rave about her beauty when she was just a princess - sure they acknowledged she was pretty but they didn't o wild about her. If she was a plain jane, people wouldn't credit her with half of the positive attributes that they do.

Princess Haya has married into a family where more is more, so I am surprised she has kept it so low key with her makeup etc. Heavy eye makeup and lipstick is de rigeur in the Gulf states. Lets see what happens there.

I'm with you. her chin is adorable!

Queen Sofía once said that the only thing that was out of discussion about her image was her hair:) (don't remember where I read it, so please don't ask)...

what do you think?
I am very convinced you are right about that.

Years ago my hairdresser draw my attention to that in a conversation we had about the coiffure of Queen Fabiola, an other good exampel of your thesis I think.

It is often said that the hairdo of Queen Beatrix is specialy designed for her. The say that the hairdo in cohesion with the fact that she almost always wears a hat in public are ment as a symbolic crown. True or not, it makes it easyer to recognise her that way (in a crowd).

About Letizia; she's beautiful, but she doesn't have a style, she looks like a walking advertisement of Armani Suits for Executive Women. Letizia needs to find a style of her own and quick because everybody is slaughtering her fashion sense...
Princess Letiza does have style.

She may feel more comfortable wearing suits thus that is her style. Many may not like it nor appreciate it, but Princess Letizia obviously feels at ease and that is what matters.

Queen Rania needs to tone down a bit, she's way too much in everything: clothes, makeup, jewelry (remember that horrendous emerald tiara ?). Most times less is more and someone should tell her that.

Mette-Marit: she has a very sporty personality and air about her, but sometimes even Marius dresses more royal than she does, i'm not saying she has to become the Scandinavian Grace Kelly, but she needs to glam up a bit.

I don't think the Queens should change their helmet hair, in Beatrix's case it's even a matter of national identity!

Infanta Elena is very glamorous when it comes to clothing but she doesn't do anything with her hairdo and makeup, she should wear her hair in different styles like her sister does.

Zara Phillips: please cover up!, I'll be embarrased if I ever show to my grandma in outfits like hers!

Thankfully it seems like Mabel has gone out of the bows obsession, but we have to wait for her child's christening to be completely sure.

CP Victoria is wearing amazing clothes lately but she needs to get rid of that forsaken ponytail!

P Caroline: excellent clothes, tacky jewerly

Sophie of Wessex: She needs a dose of pizazz. She's a lovely woman but so boring boring boring. She needs to ditch the navy and neutrals, some livelier colors would be nicelike bright pinks and blues and red. She also needs some new and colorful jewels, some emeralds and rubies and I mean big pieces.

Letizia: I really, really like her but she needs to gain about 10 to 15 lbs because she looks like a skeleton. I mean a very well dressed and lovely skeleton but a skeleton none the less.

Rania: See Letizia above!

Mette-Marit: Needs to wear more makeup. She often looks so washed out in photos.

Maxima: Her clothes need to be more streamlined. If you wear loud colors then the designs had better be simple or you had better be really svelt. I don't like the big bows and ties she sometimes wears around her neck. I think her weight is just fine--she looks healthy and happy.

Okay, I'm done

Maxima: I love you but she's been wearing a lot of tweed lately.

Rania: Too much make-up! She's one gorgeous woman but all that eyeliner and lipstick covers it up.

Victoria: Has made a HUGE improvement in the last two years. She even stopped wearing her weird glasses for her past couple of engagements! But yes, the ponytail....this might take a little longer to get out of her.

:)

Since Everybody has been dying to hear my two cents: (and I know you all have been hehehe)
Matilde: Dress your age! She is what, in her early thirties? She dresses much older than she is and it is a shame since she is so pretty. Some softer or even some more casual outfits would be nice for her.

Maxima: Thank goodness for a royal woman who Eats!! She looks like a regular human like the rest of us who are not size 2 or size 0 like most of the other princesses seems to be. She has a natural shape and she is lovely. She dresses well for formal events and could maybe up it a little for the daytime events. And she defineatly should stop smoking, most importantly for her health and the health of her family.

Mary: Mary is lovely. She chooses nice clothing that fits well, and she wears it all very well. She looks comfortable in anything, from jeans to evening gowns and tiaras. She is the most natural seeming of all the princesses.

Rania: More colors would be nice, and a lot less black.

Letizia: EAT!! Her facial features were so much softer and prettier when she weighed more, like when she was a reporter and when she was pregnant, and she looked so much nicer, not so harsh and unapproachable. She also needs to at least experiment with something that is not a pants suit. Yes, she looks good in them, but she also looks lovely in other outfits. And maybe even a little bit more casual-ness in her look would keep her from looking stiff or boring. She has an amazing sense of style, and I just would like her to put that to better use, rather than sticking with the same old-same old.

I thought of what CP Matilde's fashion reminded me of. She's our royal 'soccer mom!!'

I wish HMQ Rania would gain more weight, a relative of one of my freinds works in her office and she says that she is sooooooooooo lovely without make up , her eyes are so nice like a gazzele but all the heavey lebanese like make up " especially when outside jOrdan or in offecial dinner parties "covers her reall beauty ....a soft looking person like her and with beautiful Arabic eyes do not need that ..amount as for us here in Jordan : we do not see her westernized ..i wonder where do some here got their information from ?!!!!!

Lalla Salma of Morocco is a beauty but she should have a haircut or another hairdo.

I agree, Beatrix just would not be Beatrix without her teased out, hairsprayed explosion of hair ... besides they can't print new money if she goes through new hairstyles every few months.

:) :) :) :)

As the queen isn´t on the money here [only on the coins], that would not be such a big problem. But we are so used to te hairdo, maybe we can´t recognise her without it, that would be a problem!:) :)

And finaly, if we like it or not it, always gives us something to talk about, so it is very functional.:)

1. Letizia wears more different dresses than recently.
2. Royal ladies should wear less a kind of wide hat (similar kind of sombrero) then people who come to greet them can see their face clearly.
3. Less make up for Lala Salma (and also for others Marocaine royal ladies)
4. Madelinne has less suntan
5. I would like to see Queen Beatrix in different hairdo, at least different hairdo in gala events....

Has any of the royal ladies done what you all have suggested? Have some become even worse in the way of makeup and style?
