How Princess Eugenie And Princess Beatrice Went From Fashion Flops To Beauty Queens, Their Former Stylist Reveals

Date June 28, 2018 15:19

Fashion is a fickle mistress, and it's very easy to go down the wrong path with your style choices. Princesses Eugenie and Beatrice know about it first-hand. The older sister was even dubbed the worst dressed at Prince William and Kate Middleton's wedding.

Princess Beatrice's hat drew a lot of negative attention. It was called an octopus, a British Lady Gaga wannabe, and other unflattering nicknames. 

This fashion faux pas led both royal sisters to reconsider their fashion choices and make some necessary changes.

Fixing the style

Sarah Ferguson, Beatrice and Eugenie's mom, has always been their inspiration and guide in difficult styling situations. So, Fergie was the one to put her foot down and get her daughters some help.

The Duchess of York called Charlie Anderson, a fashion editor and stylist, and challenged him to turn her girls' style around. He thought the criticism of their wedding attires was a bit much:

They got hammered in the press and it was a little unfair.

But Anderson was ready to change things up and started working very closely with Eugenie and Beatrice.

After several years of fashion guidance, the stylist believes sisters are getting it right these days, and he's very approving of their outfits:

I think they have got more daring, although they have both always been quite daring and they seem to be getting to know themselves better — plus remember, they do have to adhere to certain rules especially when they are with the Queen, like wearing tights.

Although Anderson changed his profession, he's still interested in how the royal sisters navigate the fashion terrain, and he is very hopeful about their future.

Progress in action

We certainly agree with Charlie Anderson. Princesses Eugenie and Beatrice have been dazzling us with their style choices lately, especially during the recent Royal Ascot.

Beatrice still has a soft spot for statement hats, but she's gotten much better at picking them.

Both sisters are now examples of elegance and modern fashion, which we can't be more happy to be witnessing.
