Style File: Last week’s looks that flopped

Queen Mathilde's dress at the wedding of

While Queen Mathilde’s dress looked chic and was the perfect pick for the wedding of Prince Amadeo, eldest son of Princess Astrid and Prince Lorenz, in Rome on July 5th 2014, it’s her hat that landed her on last week’s list of fashion flops. Queen Maxima wore the same hat last month for the D-Day Memorial, but managed to pull it off. Queen Mathilde’s hat was a funky color, and was styled much differently than that of Queen Maxima’s. And, for a wedding, don’t we expect something far more fancy? I do!

Prince Joachim Camoflage Prince Joachim’s first wife, Countess Alexandra, threw a lavish party last weekend in celebration of her 50th birthday. This is what Joachim thought looked good before leaving the house palace. Did he want to blend in during the event? If so, he clearly managed to accomplish the complete opposite. I can’t get over how terrible it is! Cringe!

Did he have to borrow a pair from someone last minute? Did his iron break? Did no one tell him they looked terrible? Or did they look better in person? So many questions, so few answers. And I demand answers, because there is no reason these should have happened.

Had she picked a different shade, or color altogether, we wouldn’t have her on the list at all. But the light yellow just isn’t doing it for this look. But then again, she would make a potato sack look regal, the lady exudes royal.

A wool, green coat midsummer? I feel like this may be her rebelling against the demands for her to keep her derriere covered, and she’s saying, “Oh yeah, I’ll show you covered!” It seems as if passive-aggressiveness runs rampant in this royal family… but we’ll never know for sure. All we know is Kate clearly thinks this coat is amazing. (P.S. What do you think about her new hair? It hasn’t been noticed by most media outlets, so I think it’s not much of a change at all…)

Bonus:
