And drinking spirits to boot! Will England ever recover, darlings?
The funny thing about this dress is that it totally fits in with her preference for rather plain looks but it just so happens to be outrageously on trend at the moment. In fact, it’s one of the trendiest things we’ve seen her wear in years. Which means, of course, that we don’t exactly love it.
It’s breezy and comfy; it gives her confidence and definitely has a point of view to it. All of those things belong in the “pro” column. It’s just not a style of dress that looks all that great to us. All that smocking…
Still, she seems to love it, and we are compelled to support her here, because at least it’s new and has some personality to it, even if it isn’t to our particular tastes. We’re sure she’s devastated by that.
She looks nice. And yes, that is absolutely meant as both a compliment and … not quite a compliment.
