Friday Fashion Face-off: Best Dressed Princess at Wimbledon

Can it really be time for another best-dressed-at-a-slam award? Wimbledon comes fast on the heels of the French Open, all the more so when you’re writing a tennis blog.

We’re supposed to be voting on the men today, but every time I check out the men’s photos, my eyes glaze over. White shorts and white short-sleeve tee. White shorts and tee. White shorts and tee. It’s too boring for words.

There was a little red trim on Jo-Wilfried Tsonga’s outfit today. Let’s just call this one for him and move on to a more interesting face-off: the Ladies of the Royal Box.

From what I can glean from the tabloid covers, the two loveliest royals have been feuding lately over…well, I can’t imagine what. Who gets the fattest wardrobe budget? Who gets to wear the tallest tiara? What could they possibly have to complain about?

Actually, one of them will have something to complain about, because one of them is about to lose this poll.

Nominee #1: Kate Middleton

The Duchess of Cambridge is the picture of tradition in this elegant white dress. The column of black buttons emphasizes her long, graceful silhouette. (At first I thought the bow on the lapel was a strange asymmetric detail, but I realize now it’s a Wimbledon pin. Other people in the box are wearing one, too.)

Exactly how small is Her Highness’s waist, anyway? Someone get this girl a crumpet.

Nominee #2: Meghan Markle

The Duchess of Sussex–wow, that’s hard to say–gave birth only two months ago, but she already looks fabulous in jeans and a funky white pinstripe jacket. The black-banded hat gives this youthful outfit the panache it needs for tennis viewing and royal hobnobbing.

Two polls for you Yanks today…

  1. Kate looks so elegant. I think Meaghan’s outfit is a bit boxy (hiding some baby aftereffects, perhaps), but also just too casual.

    As for favorite princess, I had to vote for Leia. Gotta love a princess who takes it on! Kate is elegant. And Meaghan seems terrific. But I don’t follow them enough to know what they are really like.

    1. It’s true that compared to the women around her, Meghan is dressed too casual. Maybe she’s trying to shake things up? Maybe she’s deliberately dressing anti-Kate?

      William and Harry must be watching the kids while their wives attend Wimbledon. Gotta love those modern dads.

Let me know what you think!
