Fashion Monday Madness...The Saturday Edition

With a certain big event gracing our airwaves, and being witnessed by 2 BILLION people, I definitely wasn't going to wait until Monday to give my critique.  So without further ado, here comes my grades for The Royal Wedding!

The Good....

Was there any doubt that the dazzlingly sister duo would be the best in show?  Modern, stylish, glamorous, I could gush on and on about how beautiful they both look but we'll leave it at pure perfection.  I do have to say that it's only fair that since we appropriate British TV shows to Americanize that Kate took American Grace Kelly's wedding dress and made it her own.

Second runner-up to the gorgeous Middletons is British socialite Tara Palmer-Tomkinson.  The bright blue is eye-catching with a very modern and dramatic flare to the style.  The hat does add a hint of Judy Jetson, but those Brits love their hats, so I can live with it too.

The Bad....

Prince Harry's on/off-again girlfriend Chelsy Davy looks a bit rumpled for the big day.  Perhaps a bit too much partying the night before?  Her hair is a mess, there's no make-up to be seen and the dress is not near dressy enough for the occasion.  The fit is too loose and the color washes her out.  Looking like this will never get her a crown.

The Ugly....

While the Middleton sisters were a stylish powerhouse, Prince Andrew's daughters Eugenie and Beatrice were a fashion faux pas times two.  Eugenie's dress is a psychedelic nightmare that proves why you should say no to drugs.  The hem of the dress looks as if a kindergartner was just learning how to use scissors.  For Beatrice, it's the hat that ruins the look.  The hat looks like a cake topper or perhaps that carnival game where you throw balls through hoops.  And then there's the makeup.  Way too much rouge and didn't the raccoon look go out of style.....years ago?

There you have it, my recap of the big day!  What do you think?  Are there any outfits that stood out to you?  Please sound off below and join me on Monday for our regularly scheduled Fashion Monday.


  1. Ohmigosh. Kate and Pippa looked STUNNING. Way to shine, girls! It was amazing. Totally worth getting up at four for. :)

    Is it me, or did Harry outshine William? No offense, but he actually has hair! And he's built better, haha.

    Ohmigosh. Princess Beatrice and Eugenie?? I kept staring at that reindeer antler hat on the screen. *covers eyes*

  2. I totally agree with you, Lucia! Such a difference between these two sets of sisters. I'm curious to see if Bea and Eug always look that bad or was it just because it was a special occasion? I'll have to do some research since you don't see them in the public eye normally.

    And yes, Harry's wwwaaaayyyy hotter. I loved his unkempt FULL head of hair and his mischievious smiles. And with as rich as William is, why hasn't he invested in Rogaine or gotten hair plugs? He definitely inherited Charles' hair genetics--or lack of hair genetics.

    Thanks so much for visiting--I love discussing fashion--and have a wonderful weekend!
