Edith Head must be turning over in her grave, or a lookback at the royal wedding

Now that the big event is history, check out this Royal Wedding Fashion Report Card (19 photos in all) put together by the folks at Yahoo.

Included are the good (Kate Middleton, Pippa Middleton, Tara Palmer-Tomkinson), the bad (Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie), the bland (Duchess of Cornwall), and the downright ugly (HRH Princess Anne, who, in my opinion, looked like a charwoman gussied up for a day at the racetrack).

The peacocks were out in full regalia as well. The British are always top-notch at pomp and circumstance, but among the men this much spit, polish, brass, and military froufrou has not been seen in one location since the Battle of Trafalgar.

This has been another non-controversial post by rhymeswithplague.


  1. Non-controversial? Likening the Princess Royal to a "charwoman" is a treasonable offence in England (and in those other countries we lumbered ourselves with). You should thank your lucky stars you live in darkest Georgia! If you ever return to England there is every chance that you will be clapped in irons and taken to The Tower where you might be stretched on "the rack" and whipped with nettles or made to watch endless re-runs of The Jerry Springer Show!

  2. you are deadon!

  3. The wedding was spectacular. I loved the couple and wish them the best in life.

  4. YP, I could withstand the rack and the nettles, but I would crumble before endless re-runs of The Jerry Springer show.

    Anonymous, were you referring to me or to YP?

    Lady, don't tell anybody, but moi aussi.
