Time to Frock It again already – where do the days go?
This week, I thought we’d take a peek at some of the fashion at last weekend’s Monaco Grand Prix – now there’s an event I’d love to go to one day, how fabulous would that be?
First up, Geri Halliwell, with some serious colour-blocking going on.
I really like Geri’s green and fuchsia combo – and I love the fact that her shoes are from Next – good to see a celeb supporting the British High Street brands. Geri is looking really well these days, and seems to be better able to maintain a healthy weight – good for her!
The same unfortunately can’t be said of Holly Valance, whose outfit I think is lovely, but doesn’t have quite such a wow factor when worn by somebody who looks as though they haven’t had a square meal since the mid-90s.
And here’s another one who looks as though she’s a little bit thinner than is really healthy: Princess Beatrice.
I’m afraid this dress is a bit of a fashion fail in my opinion – I don’t think apricot is an easy colour to wear, and even less so when you’re in need of a bit of a tan, and have reddish hair colouring as well.
Jenson Button’s girlfriend (Jessica Michibata, so Google tells me), looked absolutely fantastic, I thought, in this very elegant white dress, worn with classic black heels.
And we mustn’t forget the Monaco royals – Prince Albert’s fiancee, Charlene Wittstock, the former swimmer, looked lovely in a pretty summer dress and heels.
Unfortunately, one of the younger Royals, Andrea Casiraghi, forgot to tell his girlfriend that it was a Grand Prix, not a pyjama party, as she appears to have turned up in her nightie.
And talking of night attire, it would have been wrong of me to let this week’s Frock It go by without a brief reference to British fashion designer, Katharine Hamnett, who went to the Palace to receive her CBE this week, wearing what looked like an oversized black T shirt, paired with a pair of scruffy ballet pumps.
Perhaps she thought everybody would be so busy looking at her bizarre headwear (made by Philip Treacy from cockerel feathers, which are a by product of food waste, for those of you interested in such details), that they wouldn’t notice she was dressed like a bag lady.
Princess Beatrice, eat your heart out. Here’s a closer look.
That’s it from me for this week, folks, but skip on over to Mid 30s Life for more Frock It posts.
