It looks like the wind has caught it & its kind of billowing it in & up. It also looks uncomfortable.

Photos from Getty
from post # 3 above:
On the photo 1 she looks like a lawyer (in the USA lawyer's dress style) on her way to court. Very elegant and serious outfit.
On photo 4 she looks terrible, I can almost hear Barry Manilow's Copa Cabana song in the background.
On photo 5, she looks like a discarded doll model for a Franklin Mint series on kitchen curtains used for Couture. Maybe the little known Gone with the Wind Scarlett O'Hara's curtains-coverted-to-outfits series :p

I'm glad Diana got over all that and became a Glamazon, I found some funny definitions of Glamazon below that could easily apply (except on the height) to Diana, Caroline, Rania and Lalla Salma, and Angelina Jolie:

glamazon - When beauty and brawn collide, a statuesque enchantress who is once, twice, three times a lady -- three times the height, three times the Chanel makeup, three times the Versace.

Glamazon Blend of glamour and Amazon The glamour of amazons, Greeks heroes, etc. (as depicted in recent movies such as "Troy"

A Physically Imposing Woman of inordinate shape and beauty, a "Glamorous Amazon" who stuns men with her overwhelming pulchritude.

I wasn't too sure of what a mullet was, so I did some research on google and now I can assure you: it definitely made its way across the pond. I had several classmates back then with a mullet, girls and boys. (It's sooooooo ugly! )

Photo 1 isn't so bad- its the shoulder pads! I have such issues with shoulder pads I refuse to wear them to this day (even the little ones- they are gone!). Diana looks stylish & it looks like an outfit that could be worn in any decade.

Well, Andy Warholl certainly agreed with you. He made portraits of some Queens and he said that beatrix was the prettiest by far
But she was certainly beautiful, especially in the early days of her marriage. And still I think she has this unique charisma...

Over here a variation of it is sometimes nickamed the Ann Landers' hairdo or Helmet Hairdo because it looks like a helmet. Is not helmet hair, that's the flat hair after you remove a real motorcycle helmet.

What was it with the 80s & all the bows- or the "bow-ties" that women wore? Like in the picture we see of Princess Astrid.

Yes, now you mention it, I remember that! he did all the queens (I believe at the time there were 4 women in the world who were queens in their own right, Margarethe, Elizabeth, Beatrix, and one queen in Africa whose country I'm ashamed I can't recall). And yes I remember the tv news bulletin in which they showed footage of Warhol raving about Beatrix's beauty! Good thing though she never became another Edie Sedgwick

good lord those sleeves are scarier than the ones Beatrix always wore. Oh the 80s always good for a laugh aren't they? (this of course coming from the girl who rocked the leggings and over-sized t-shirt for years as a child)
