Royal Watch: Princess Victoria of Sweden and Prince Daniel
In little more than a month, Bill and Cathy Cambridge will be sucking up all the air in the room when they tour Canada and make a pit stop in Los Angeles. The press will be epic and we will probably have bitchy things to say about half her outfits. Before that starts, let’s pay a little more attention to that other royal couple, who might be less stylish, but seem to have more personality.
Oh, Vicki. Fucked it up on the details again. We like the print, the shape, and the length on her. The neckline is too high and to be perfectly frank, this looks like a dress that had sleeves and the sleeves were removed, rather than a dress that was designed to be sleeveless. The belt almost works, but would have been better in a darker brown or even a black. The shoes are too matchy and we don’t like that big honking wrist watch she favors. That’s fine with a suit or something a bit more severe, but it looks odd with a sleeveless day dress.
He looks impeccable, as always.
Okay, that’s a little better. Her clothes have a tendency to look a little home-sewn, though. You can see the darts at 20 paces. Still, we like the shape and color, and the neckline flatters her. We like the idea of a bold belt with this dress, but we’re not entirely sold on this particular belt. The shoes are clearly on loan from Queen Elizabeth. The Swedish royal family obviously does not employ gays because some Swedish queen would have spit out her lingonberries by now and informed her that the ever-present ponytail isn’t always the best idea for a gal with a prominent chin. A fuller and shorter cut would work wonders for her.
He, again, looks great, although the jacket may be a skosh too tight and the lapels need pressing. Still, he must have quite the bod under those suits because they are fitted exactly and the small waist and broad shoulders are giving us the royal vapors.
