Are Royal Ladies More Elegant?

Well, it goes with the territory. They are expected to come out with the best fashion can offer. After Grace Kelly of Monaco, Soraya and Farah of Iran, Paola of Belgium and Princess Margaret of Britain monopolized the covers of the magazines back in the 50's and 60's the tradition of glamour has never let go. It's like we expect it to happen.
Why I still don't understand is why royal ladies don't get the deals super models have to get the best outfits from their countries' best designers...free. After all, royal ladies do help the complicated fashion industry to spotlight their work. Look at Lorenzo Caprile for example. He was introduced to Letizia by Prince Felipe's sisters to do Letizia's gowns and ever since them he is the golden boy of fashion.
I'll even suggest him to sent at least one free garnment a week to Leti (with matching purse and shoes!) for all the business she has provided him. :)

Yes, I believe that Royal ladies are more elegant than non Royal celebrities,
I think its because exist a bigger fascination for royals, all the protocol thing
all the class that a royal need to have, walking,talking, sitting and all the other things.

There is also the fact that the royal ladies have someone to take care of their clothing. You won't find them rushing to iron a skirt or blouse a few minutes before leaving the house. Their clothes are the best and are cared for accordingly.

Please remember that this thread is to discuss which royal outfits look like celebrity fashion and not what celebrity outfits would look good on royals.

Thanks for your co-operation.

Okay I will take that, not the most well put question if I relate it to this topic.
Lets see if I can put it in a other way.
The last celebrity gala we saw was the emmy. Some of the dresses could work as gala dresses.
If we saw any of the royals in such dresses would they gets applauds from royals watchers and say that works for royals as well and not to reviling and so forth. Or if we say some of the dresses last worn by royals, Mette marits pink gala dress worn a few weeks ago or Victoria’s green dress with the white jacket would they be bashed. For it at the emmeys red carpet.
One more question some fashion experts say that royals dress boring, why do you think that is.

This is in reference to the earlier pictures of Princess Martha Louise in the yellow and Princess Laurentien in that awful blue trouser suit with the matching hat.

Who let them out of the Palace looking like that?

Don't believe so. Could you link to a picture of Letizia wearing the dress, as you did with the Maxima/Gillian comparison in post #104? Perhaps you are thinking of the dress she wore to the gala in honour of Russian ballerina Maya Plisetskaya last September 10?

Both outfits are lovely, but I love the top matched with the wide belt and black skirt.

I think Vanessa wore the yellow wrap dress much better, it suits her dark features.

I agree with you!. those outfits are almost the same, just some minor differences. Vanessa"s out fit color is darker than Maria Laura's, and the design and the shape of the outfits necks are different.

Photos of Halle Berry

I can't find a picture of Grand Duchess Maria Teresa wearing it, but she wore a strapless version of this Elie Saab dress Halle Berry wore to the Oscars.
