An interesting article by Suzy Menkes, in which she regrets that the new generation of Queens and Crown Princesses are clothes hangers:

Great article (The Suze always deliver) and she pointed out something I've been thinking about for a while now. The difference in style between queens and crown princesses born royal and those born as commoners. The first don't seem prone to be the kind of fashionistas as the latter often seem to aspire to be.

Suzy Menkes is being disingenuous as she among the press who pilloried The Duchess of York for being overweight with terrible style. She could have focused her article on the good works instead of the of their clothes but she doesn't because pretty ladies in pretty clothes sells, always has and always will. If you read articles from the time Elizabeth and Margaret were coverage for their clothes and looks and jewels ans anything else. We're in the age of huge mass media and blogs and there's just more outlets of coverage of the same things as have always beend covered. Hilary Clinton is a serious politician is a serious smart politician in her 60 yet reporters still ask about her hair. Sarah Palin was popular for her political stances to some extent but most because she was a hot looking mother of 5. Unless people want to get into what men get away with vs what women get away with this article is using these women for their looks just like everyone else.

The sentence they want to be movie stars is ridiculous. These women are representing their countries they all simply want to look good while doing this. Boards like this and reporters like Suzy don't help these women to just enjoy and not worry about weight or the right color of shoe. I think the obsession with these women's style started with Diana, and has just gotten worse they get torn apart if they don' wear something strangers decree is right.

I view Lady Gabriela Windsor, Serena, Viscountess Linley, and Lady Sarah Chatto as royal fashion icons. Their fashion ensembles are simple refined elegant.

The fashion focus is always going to be on women such as royals or the First Lady of the US. No one ever reports what type of suit or how much it cost for the guys but we see it for the women. The Telegraph has a hit or miss article that grades almost every outfit that Kate has worn on an engagement.

You are right. This means that I do not view any royal lady as a fashion icon. All royal ladies are just well-dressed women. Some of them look just all right, and the others try too hard and end up looking budget.
