Why was Princess Beatrice looking like a Cretan fertility goddess at the Royal Wedding?
Mais quel dommage! because her really beautiful Valentino couture dress and coat were daftly eclipsed by the headpiece.
Personally, I'd shoot a few milliners pour encourager les autres starting with the massively over-rated Philip Treacy. This is what he did to Princess Eugenie (wearing a curious blue historicist number by Vivien Westwood)
and to the Duchess of Cornwall. (Where is she?) Once again, the ensemble is overwhelmed/cancelled out by the hat. But I tell you what, she makes a fantastic Farrow & Ball paint chart.
Uh oh, socialite Tara Palmer Tomkinson also falls for a Treacy art installation. As this is a family publication I probably won't go any further.
Call me old fashioned... or call me something worse.
