I'm the opposite. I love the hat and don't like anything else. The suit jacket looks like it's from a few decades ago.

Love Day 4's outfit. Such a beautiful silver-gray and the coat's texture is really beautiful. Those pearls are also luscious and so is her handbag. She totally redeemed her ghastly ruffle and bow Day 3 outfit with today's look. And Prince Michael looks mighty dapper, I must say!

Day 4 is lovely, great color for her and great pearls.
do feel she was going for the Cecil Beaton look the day before but could have achieved it with a plain dress

I think it was al too much, a frilly dress matches a subtle hat and a over the top hat could go with a plainer dress and the scarf was without any connection whatever

That hat is amazing with the accessories and so is her hair, but I don't like the jacket. It seems too big and long on her and the dress looks shapeless; also there's those deep housedress-like pockets on the jacket that always ruin the look for me.

Princess Michael today at Wimbledon.

Love the jewellery Princess Michael chose, as well as the colour of the jacket, but what's with somewhat frumpy looking outfits she's been sporting lately?

I've noticed that some of her jackets are shapeless lately and it's making her outfits look frumpy. Perhaps she has lost some weight.

Princess Michael looked absolutely lovely attending the event alongside other British royals. I liked the airy summer hat and soft pastel colours.

Urrm, maybe it has to do with the fact that she is close to 70...

You don't have to be frumpy due to your age....

Indeed!

BTW, most of the things the Princess has worn in the last weeks are about ten years old or older and yes, she appears to have lost weight in the last months/years, so they do not fit that well anymore. I remember an interview from last year where she said that she loves Victoria Beckham's fashion, but she feels too old and doesn't like the idea of dressing like a 30/40 year old woman. My guess is that she's trying to find a new style, but it wasn't great in the last months, particularly the hair is a mess IMO...

However, many new hats I've spotted. Loved the one at Epsom and the one she's worn to the unveiling of the memorial. AFAIK, Philip Treacy lends her hats.

I suppose no matter how old we are, it's always a matter of finding the right style and fashion that suits us at a particular age. When I lost a lot of weight in my 40s, I had to be careful to find the right kind of clothing that was age appropriate and still looked good according to my new figure. So things were hit and miss for me for awhile until I established a style I was comfortable with and looked good. If she's at this uncertain stage, I certainly empathize with her.

I really like that jacket on her; it's a beautiful color with an almost iredescent sheen to it.

You definitly don't, but I admire her for not trying on her daughter's clothes, like some mums do. Each age has it's beauty and quality.
