Who Wore Roksanda Ilincic Better? Princess Beatrice or Marisa Tomei

Princess Beatrice and Marisa Tomei wore this Roksanda Ilincic Pre-Fall 2012 dress just two days apart.

Their blush-tone ‘Izumi’ dress with a rounded neckline and long sleeves that lead into royal-blue frilled cuffs was a great look for both of them.

Princess Beatrice was the first to take the dress for a spin on the red carpet when she wore it to the ‘Britain Creates 2012′ Fashion & Art Gala in London.

The young royal’s sophisticated look was styled with Nicholas Kirkwood printed blue pumps and a gold Anya Hindmarch glitter clutch.

Marisa Tomei wore her dress during the Berluti private dinner during Paris Menswear Spring 2013 Fashion Week.

The brunette actress paired her look with a nude clutch bag and Aperlai colour-block heels in varying shades of blue.

I love the dress on both, so it comes down to the styling.

As you know, I thought Marisa’s shoes upstaged her dress somewhat, so Beatrice’s pitch-perfect styling of her dress makes her a winner in my eyes.

Princess Beatrice In McQ Alexander McQueen – Crosby Hall

On Friday night, Princess Beatrice was spotted attending a private party at Crosby Hall in Chelsea, London.

She opted for a British brand once again by wearing a McQ by Alexander McQueen ‘Moulded Torso’ dress from the Resort 2012 collection.

The princess made the right choice by selecting navy accessories to go with her psychedelic print dress to allow the dress to be the focus, although I find myself lusting over her shoes.

Back in September 2011, Drew Barrymore was first spotted wearing this dress to an Emmy’s after-party.

You can buy Beatrice’s McQ Alexander McQueen dress, which is currently on sale from
AlexanderMcQueen.com, farfetch.com, farfetch.com US and Revolve Clothing.

Princess Beatrice In Roksanda Ilincic – Britain Creates 2012: Fashion & Art Collusion VIP Gala

Princess Beatrice attended the Britain Creates 2012: Fashion & Art Collusion VIP Gala, held at the Old Selfridges Hotel in London this evening.

My favourite royal wore a dress from one of my favourite designers; Roksanda Ilincic.

I love how her elegant blush wool-crepe long-sleeve dress has contrasting royal-blue (pun intended) ruffled cuffs.

She opted for blue patterned Nicholas Kirkwood platform heels and added a pop of pink via her Anya Hindmarch glitter clutch to complete her head-to-toe look of British-based designers.

Now if only Beatrice could introduce Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge to Nicholas Kirkwood shoes, I would be eternally grateful.

Princess Beatrice In Kinder Aggugini & Princess Eugenie In Suzannah – St. Paul’s Cathedral

Princesses Eugenie and Beatrice joined Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge for the morning service at St. Paul’s Cathedral celebrating the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee yesterday.

Both looked lovely for their grandmother’s celebratory weekend.

Beatrice wore a Kinder Aggugini blue-and-white striped coat dress. She wore a matching Stephen Jones hat covered in white tulle with a white floral accent.

A Lemaresca bag and Kurt Geiger ‘Elliot’ pumps completed her look.

Eugenie wore a Suzannah purple dress with a matching Stephen Jones hat.

Her accessories included Kurt Geiger ‘Eden’ nude pumps and a Loro Piana bag.

You will not be surprised to learn that the sisters have a new stylist since their royal wedding garbs were panned the world over, although not by me.

I happened to like both looks, but I also have a soft spot for the princesses.

Do you like their looks?

Eugenie’s Kurt Geiger ‘Eden’ nude pumps are also available from KurtGeiger.com.

Princess Beatrice In Elie Saab – Elie Saab Spring 2012 Presentation

Princess Beatrice attended the Elie Saab Spring 2012 show in Paris yesterday – the only show she attended this fashion week.

When I arrived at the show I was told, “Princess is here”, to which I responded, “Fan Bingbing?”.

The person laughed and said, “No, the Princess, Princess Beatrice”.

As you know, I have a very soft spot for Princess B, so I was delighted to see her in the front row at the show wearing a red Elie Saab Resort 2012 dress.

She teamed her dress with black pumps (grrr) and a gold clutch.

Beatrice has worn Elie Saab several times for public and private events, so it’s no wonder she wanted to see the collection up close for herself.

I wonder which looks she will wear in the future.

Here are my picks.
