Craziest Royal Outfits (June 2010 Informal Picture of the Month Poll)
Welcome to the
June 2010 Informal POM poll
the Craziest Royal Outfits!

The pictures in this poll show the informal side of royalty. It will close on 4 August 2010. During this time, we ask that NO ONE STATE WHOM THEY'VE VOTED FOR so as not to influence other members as they make their choices.

It's a difficult one because they're all rather crazy [...] !
I actually like the green outfit worn by Sheikha Mozah bint Nasser al-Missned!

Your not suppose to say who you voted for.

It's so difficult to choose though. When the polls closed I will put them in my own order.

irishthanhy 07-13-2010 05:09 PM

When I got to Mabel I thought it was in the bag, then I saw Sonja and it went no where good from there. So very difficult to choose....

Enigma 07-13-2010 05:42 PM

it's difficult to choose, lots of funny outfits and p. caroline who happens to be one of my favorite royals when it comes to fashion, looked like caroline in the box!!!;). still i was able to vote for a more crazy outfit:biggrin:.

crisscross1 07-13-2010 06:46 PM

Caroline made a huge fashion faux pa with that little number. Apart from the fact that it was an incredibly ugly outfit there was a little too much boob showing :ohmy: It was even worse than Mabels wedding outfit and that is saying something.

Chimene 07-13-2010 07:26 PM

LOL, Sonja looks like she escaped from the circus, and Caroline looks like a bird that has been plucked in all the wrong places, I'm dying here. QM2 is somewhere in the rainbow and she just blinded me with all that yellow.

Sofia is kind of funny and I'm going hang Claire in some chateau in Provence where she belongs. The green outfit reminds of a Jim Carey movie, can't remember the name now. Queen Raina and Sylvia's outfit are ugly but should not be on this list, I think. Princess Aya is again not that bad.

Luckily for Mabel, the color of her get up saved her in this contest, she actually wasn't that bad if you're not factoring that she showed up at a state wedding. Who did I vote for? I don't know, they all look nuts.:lol:

jonc93 07-13-2010 08:42 PM

OMG! so many horrible, horrible, horrible outfits!!

LadyK 07-13-2010 09:59 PM

Remember, do not say who you voted for until after the poll is closed.

I'm glad you like the choices- the PoM committees did a great job once again!

For more crazy outfits, check out this thread.

Vanesa 07-14-2010 12:30 AM

This one was quite hard...All outfits were pretty crazy for me. I was supposed to pick the craziest of them...and I did it, or I think that I did it. It was sad to me to accept this woman was so badly dressed, since I generally like her attitude facing life. But she must have been really crazy when she choiced to wear that awful thing over her .:eek:


dazzling 07-14-2010 02:15 AM

Must be honest some royal houses have some outfits which are not near to even being called craziest outfit since they are quite pretty and wearable and on the other hand there are some really out of this world outfits like Carolines, Mabels and that print on Lalla Salmas coat/dress if you can tell what it is not to mention QM's bright yellow number.

Its hard to choose now.

NoorMeansLight 07-14-2010 01:09 PM

I just want to say that I feel so sorry for bashing Mabel last month.:biggrin: Apparently, there's much worse... That was so much fun, guys! Thanks! :smile:

Humera 07-14-2010 04:24 PM

Sheikha Mozah's outfit is rather stylish...maybe if it was a different colour.
Princess Caroline's is absolutely hideous.
I'm still puzzled about Mabel's. Why would anyone wear something like that to the wedding of a Crown Princess is beyond me. Didn't she feel under dressed among all those splendid gowns?

cristine 07-14-2010 04:51 PM

I think Mabel dress was beautiful and looked good on her, but it wasn't appropriate for a crown princess wedding. And there are a lot of chest being shown.

Elly C 07-14-2010 05:25 PM

What a brilliant poll -I've had a good chuckle. I think you should name & shame the designers too. I do agree with Cristine's point about whether an outfit is suitable for the occasion should perhaps come into play when voting - after all they can't all have been attending fancy dress parades can they?

Tiggersk8 07-15-2010 01:52 AM

You know...After seeing that thing Mabel wore to Victoria's wedding last month, I believed that was the worst outift I'd ever seen on a Royal Lady.

I was wrong.

The sad thing...I'm sure all of them looked at themselves in the mirror before heading out and thought, "I look amazing tonight!!"

Oh and did Princess Claire pull a Maria from The Sound of Music and use discarded curtains from somewhere for that get up she's wearing in that picture!?! It sure looks like it.

Its more of making a statement rather than looking elegent & stylish

I know I said it before dazzling, but she just looks stupid.:cool:

Some very good reinforcement that couture looks great on a runway, but not so great in real life!
