When she was younger, back in the 1950s and 1960s, even the Queen wore some interesting headgear. She showed up a few times looking as though she had whole flowerpots full of begonias on her head. I think the butterflies are quite well in keeping with royal tradition!

Oh? Now that is news to me... have to search for pics, of course! Thank you for the information.

Well, it might have been Mummie's influence - you know what the Queen Mum was like!

I would advice her to forget the dresses that are too short! She's young but some of the dresses she (her sister as well) has worn are far too girlish and too short. However, I found the butterfly hat perfect for wedding as the butterfly is symbol of love.

I would suggest that she ditch the clingy fabrics--they don't really work for her. I would also suggest getting some really good fitting undergarmets; the jackets she has chosen generally do not often work for her--they add bulk. She needs to wear her skirts a touch longer, add a little heel, and please ditch the dark stockings.

Beatrice and Eugenie wear clothes which are far too fussy IMO. They are both so young and pretty, but their clothes spoil them, and leave them open to ridicule. Lady Helen Windsor or the Duchess of Cornwall could not do better than offer them some advice, they both always look well groomed and dignified.

I have noticed that almost all of the royal women have large busts. However, none of them appears to have properly supportive undergarments. Is it the fashion there to have soft, loose fitting bras? Beatrice's style advisor might help her to get some bathing suits with proper support so we will not see any more of those saggy pictures in bikinis. The blowsy outfits Beatrice and her sister wear are further sabotaged by insufficient support. Even Camilla's bust appears to be approaching her waistline. Is it considered unroyal to have definition of the bustline? There are so many beautifully constructed undergarments available today. Are they banned from Britain?

Simplicity. That is the style to which most people should adhere. Very few are runway models. Simple. smart, elegant clothing always looks good. The girls could look to Helen Windsor who learned that lesson, but the DOC often looks like a sagging sack with feathers.

After seeing the Ascot pictures, I would advise her to ditch the jackets. Even if she were to have them a size bigger, which she should, the outfits would still look better - and more her age, without them. She is young - there is no sense in making the attempt to look like she is 50.

I think that that's a general point - look your age.

I personally think that Sarah has alot to do with the way the princesses initially dressed, she was insecure in herself and position and tried to prove otherwise through her clothing and started off their somewhat bizare sense of fashion. I would tell her that less is more and she doesn't have to prove anything to anyone, which always seems to be the case. Look at Zara Philips at the ascot, she looked stylish attractive and different. You can have some different hat/accesories/clothing without going so far out. I would also advise her that someone who is somewhat pleasingly plump should not be caught dead in a bikini. The last thing I would tell her is to have a jaw-correctional surgery, which will give her the ability to close her mouth w/o making a long face. I must tell you the british royals have to stike out the "protruding jaw" gene from their DNA.

My advice to both girls would be:

Get your hair cut into a shoulder length style that is manageable and tidy, can be put be put up for grand occasions. But at present your hairstyles, particularly Beatrice's is untidy and does nothing for you. Maintain regular appointments and generally make your selves look like you care

Don't try to copy your mother - her clothes taste is not great, look to Zara Phillips, Princess Anne or Sophie - all of these ladies look well groomed, cared for and look like they put thought into there clothes.

The plunging necklines are not necessary, we can see you have nice breasts but don't show them so often.

Never wear black stockings with white shoes or white dresses - trashy. Lighten your hosiery to smoky grey, black tights are one thing, black, blak stockings another. Light hosiery will flatter your legs.

Get rid of the outrageous hats, they don't suit you. I know hats are part of your job, again ask Sophie for her milliner or even Camilla, she has some nice hats - the silly ones don't do you any favours.

Enough for now

Sandra

Princess Anne for clothes advice. Sorry, no great taste there. Sophie looks good sometimes and dreadful other times. Yes, they need a guide and, you are right, not their mother. Their hats are atrocious, but don't go to Camilla for advice either. Or for that matter Sophie. The flying saucers are awful and Camilla's over sized hats make her look like a mushroom with feathers. Most look the same. Run to a lady with style. Lady Helen Windsor or the Duchess of Gloucester or her daughter. Or Princess Michael and her daughter. Those are ladies who can dress.

The Queen could give them advice on appropriate undergarments. Her bust is big in proportion to her waist, but she always looked--um--under control.

I think Princess Anne has worn some lovely clothes. Her wedding dress imo was the most appropriate and looked wonderful on her. In my opinion she looked much nicer that Diana or Fergie. The dress she wore to Prince Charles wedding(I think) yellow and white (she wore it again recently) was very flattering. Some of the horsie outfits aren't too good I admit

I think she's a lovely girl as she is, but she does tend to have a Queen Mum style sensibility. More tailoring and less floaty filmy clothig would be perfect. Her makeup and hair look find for her age.

Maybe Clinton and Stacy would like to fly over to the UK for an intervention?

1. Stand up straight. No more slouching. It does you and your dress no favours
2. Try to focus in the general direction of the cameras. The droopy eyed thing just makes you look drunk/stoned.

Of course if the press takes 3,000 pictures and deliberately chooses the least flattering, you're pretty much sunk. Just ask Mom.

I would first suggest to her to quit the plunging necklines. On a big event, fine. But not on every night out.

Then I would suggest to not follow the trend with the flowy and wide clothes. Beatrice is a healty sized girl. Maybe (Probably) bigger than the average girl, but then you should wear clothes that hug your body more. The wide clothes can make you look pregnant very easily.

Third. Don't overdo it. For example; Recently she wore a blue, short dress, black panty hoses, 5 inch heels and a blue jacket. Wrong, it's all a bit too much.

Fourth. Ditch your mum's clothing advise Beatrice (assuming as Sarah likes to pretend she is their age and they basically do everything together, she is also giving her clothing advise), it does you no good.

Beatrice should go for the preppy chick look.

If I were giving Princess Beatrice any advise it would be: Talk to her cousin Zara, she seems to have a great fashion sense. She has come into her own and usually looks great, very appropriate for the occasion. I would also suggest that she quit with all the tight clothes. Her dresses should be longer, no tight waists, quit showing so much clevage. She is young and should be hip but she must also realize that she will always be photographed and should dress accordingly. I also agree that she should quit trying to follow her mums advise. I liked Fergie but never thought she had much fashion sense.

This is why I'd hate to be a princess looking for fashion advice!

I'm not saying either of you is right or wrong, but I find it funny how one of you says to "wear clothes that hug your body more" and the other one says "quit with all the tight clothes"!

I guess everyone has a different sense of style.
