Following the thread about Charlene of Monaco, I was wondering who you all think the most stylish royal woman around is? For me the top three (in no particular order) would be:
1. Mary of Denmark – freakin’ glam and never matronly. 2. Rania of Jordan – always looks stylish and tasteful without being boring. 3. Maxima of the Netherlands – probably the most fashion-forward royal. Takes risks which don’t always pay off but when they do, she looks fabulous and is never dull.
Oh yes, how could I forget Letitzia! Make that my top 4 then. The woman knows how to wear a trouser suit and isn't above flashing some leg in a mini dress and killer heels either! I love her bob haircut too.
Indeed yes. In the photo I linked to she's totally rocking a polo neck and tweed jacket, which can be a hard look to carry off. She does perfectly. And I love her hair. It takes such confidence to know what you like, what is you, and stay with it.
I'm going to say the Queen. I appreciate that she's much older.
She dresses beautifully. I love that she deliberately wears very bright colours so people can see her. Her dresser always ensures that every item is perfect. No hems hanging down, no marks, no spare threads. Everything matching.
I think her dresser does a really good job.
I also like that wears things again and again and supports British industry.
I saw the exhibition of the Queen’s, Princess Margaret’s and Diana’s dresses in Kensington Palace. The strange thing was that HM’s and Princess M’s dresses from the fifties and sixties hadn’t really aged but Diana’s 80s numbers looked really retro. Her dresses were also massive compared to theirs but she was a tall woman and they were both very petite and, in their youth, had tiny waists.
