Princess Beatrice wore a £1287 Emilia Wickstead dress to Wimbledon

Here are some additional photos from Wimbledon on Friday and Saturday. This year’s Championships have felt a little light on glamour and star-power, honestly, or maybe I haven’t paid close enough attention. Princess Beatrice and her husband Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi usually go to Wimbledon for at least one day of matches on Centre Court, and they were there on Friday for the men’s semifinals. They watched as Novak Djokovic easily defeated Jannik Sinner, then Carlos Alcaraz easily defeated Daniil Medvedev. Beatrice wore a £1287 Emilia Wickstead dress in a pale pink. Some are calling it Barbiecore. Yeah… not every pink dress is Barbiecore, guys.

Speaking of Barbiecore, the cast of Barbie was in London last week as part of the promotional tour. The tour ended the very moment SAG-AFTRA went on strike. I guess Issa Rae decided to stay in town and – this is just my guess – she wore one of her Barbie-promotion looks to the Wimbledon women’s final. She looked amazing!!!

Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas love tennis – they not only turn up at Wimbledon matches, they’re also regulars at the US Open. They came out for the women’s final on Saturday. I hate her sunglasses and her peep-toe boots are fug. Nick looks nice though.

Andrew Garfield looked like a bearded king arriving at the women’s final. Love that he came out for the ladies!!

    I like the dress. The color though… Doesn’t suit Be.

    • BeanieBean says:

      I much prefer what Issa Rae is wearing to the dowdy fusty English ‘no particular era/indeterminate length’ dresses, made even worse by small flower prints, of pretty much every other woman there. Bea’s dress is just blah & looks a little big on her.

      • B says:

        Has Issa Rae ever looked awful? The woman brings it every single time 😉

        If Bea wants to have anything to do with being a working Royal / working Royal adjacent member, maybe looking a little dowdy is part of the job right now. It wouldn’t take much to upshow (cough cough) some of the regulars.

    • Erin says:

      First thing I noticed. That color is bad on her skin tone and hair.

  2. girl_ninja says:

    Everyone looks so good except I don’t like Priyanka’s boots at all. Love her dress though. I also don’t like the fit of Andrew’s trousers but he looks handsome. Issa looks Barbie fabulous.

  3. Beatrice’s dress was wearing her. It seemed to be too big for her. Not in love with that shade of pink.

    • North of Boston says:

      I think it could have been okay with a different, less 80’s women’s business attire collar

    • AnnaKist says:

      I think that dress looks awful on Beatrice. Kate is like one of the tomato stakes I use , so can get away with wearing a dress like that . Bea is curvy and all that fabric is way too much. Even if the dress wear a size smaller the fabric would still swamp her. We should also do you clear of that colour.. she needs more fitted dresses with a sexy edge, small prints, if any, and jewel colours. She needs someone to show her what she would look great in..

      I have always detested those toe-less boots. Are they really boots? Shoes? Sh-oots? No one looks good in them. They are too ridiculous.

    • Glamarazzi says:

      I think it’s the sleeves that give that impression, they’re flopping over her wrists. It’s a pretty dress with a nice fit otherwise.

    • Michele says:

      She needs a tailor. Those sleeves practically reach her knees.

    • BeanieBean says:

      Yeah, dusty rose is pretty awful. And I’ve never thought of it as a summertime color, more fall.

  4. Bettyrose says:

    A dress and heels seems so uncomfortable for stadium seating. I’m sure the VIP sections are slightly more comfortable but I’d be in jeans and sneakers like celebs at American sporting events.

    • Mei says:

      There isn’t a dress code for spectators per se, but dressing smartly is encouraged, especially if you’re attending Centre Court or Court Number One. Considering they sell champagne and caviar, it’s not so much of a relaxed jeans and sneakers event unless they’re fairly smart I’d say. The Royal box is more strict, I think I read somewhere that Lewis Hamilton got turned away in 2015 or something because he wasn’t in a shirt or tie or suit jacket.

  5. Eurydice says:

    Beatrice’s dress looks like an oversized raincoat. And are peep-toes a thing again?

  6. Tessa says:

    Beatrice’s dress is rather plain looking

  7. Amy Bee says:

    Only Issa Rae looked good.

    • BlueNailsBetty says:

      Agreed. Bea’s dress is pretty but she looks washed out in most pale pastels. Priyanka looks like she’s trying to be Kim Kardashian with the glasses and peep toe (wtf?) boots.

      Issa is showing how. it’s. done.

      • Lilly (with the double-L) says:

        Yes! Issa’s look made me gasp, just gorgeous. Priyanka is a beautiful woman, it’s mainly the boots for me that are meh.

    • Bettyrose says:

      Hers is the only dress that looks remotely comfortable for the event, bit I feel like she is always her true self.

    • TheVolvesSeidr says:

      She’s stunning (Issa Rae)

  8. Kundenzentrum says:

    You pay over 1000 bucks and then your sleeves are too long?
    Also this looks more like a winter dress and that collar is kind of huge.
    For the last two dozen occasions Beatrice maybe got it right once. She doesn’t have a clue what kind of style would actually suit her and then she always ends up prim and stuffy, drowning in weird clothes that don’t suit her, trying to look „royal“.

  9. Dee says:

    Where is the money coming from?? She seemingly doesn’t work?? Not a working royal?

  10. Becks1 says:

    I don’t mind the dress. It’s not the best but it’s not awful either. She looks nice overall.

    • Saucy&Sassy says:

      Becks1, I agree. The collar is big and sleeve length is too long, but it shows how tiny her waist is. Beatrice has curves and she’s showing them off here. I will never understand why the dress length on the royal women have to be unflattering, but that seems to be a staple. I like Bea in a stronger color.

  11. UnstrungPearl says:

    Issa easily the best dressed here.
    I actually don’t mind Beatrice’s outfit, could be so much worse although the bar is low unfortunately.
    I prefer it to Kate’s, at least Bea’s accessories actually match.

  12. Nerd says:

    I don’t like Beatrice’s dress on her at all. The fit and muted color isn’t flattering on her. Too plain Jane. Priyanka’s dress is nice, although the dark color seems a little too dark for an outside event. It’s a great fit and style. The shades and boots have to go, they are too much and don’t go with the style of the dress. Issa Rae looks gorgeous from head to toe. The style, color and confidence she exudes in that dress is amazing.

  13. Krista says:

    I was hoping y’all would cover some of these looks from the final yesterday!

    Issa looked so beautiful and Andrew… bearded king, indeed! And it was so cute to see him sitting with Lin Manual Miranda (a little Tick, Tick… Boom reunion!)

    • liz says:

      Lin’s wife, Vanessa, was sitting on his other side and also looked fantastic -simple brown pants suit, white t shirt and great sunglasses. She’s always had a great sense of style. I think one of their nephews, who is a big tennis player/fan was with them.

      And yes, Issa looked gorgeous.

  14. Kirsten says:

    Issa Rae’s dress is really cute but bright, short, and lacy is a lot of look for Wimbledon. It’s definitely better suited for a premiere.

  15. NEENA ZEE says:

    I love Issa Rae but I hate that dress. The color looks gorgeous on her, naturally, but… the skirt looks like a stiff doily and the top looks like a tank over a mock turtleneck. No.

  16. vs says:

    Issa looks amazing…I like Priyanka’s look as well
    Beatrice looks terrible!

  17. AnneL says:

    I actually like that shade of pink and think it suits a redhead quite well. But the cut of the dress is not flattering. It’s just swallowing her. It looks like a coat.

    Issa’s dress is fun and she looks great. It’s not right for the occasion, but I’m glad we got to see it since the Barbie promo events aren’t happening.

    • BeanieBean says:

      Issa’s dress looks like a hot pink tennis outfit to me. I could easily see Serena wearing something like this.

  18. FancyPants says:

    What happened when Issa tried to sit down?

  19. TheOriginalMia says:

    Bea looks fine. As someone said, it’s better than Kate’s tennis ball colored dress.

    Priyanka…yeah, I didn’t like the shades or the boots and looking at the full length of the dress, not fond of it either.

    Issa has looked amazing on this promo tour and this cute dress is no exception. Gorgeous woman.

  20. robin samuels says:

    I don’t normally comment on anything concerning KM. Still, since she’s part of a fashion critique involving other women, the celery green isn’t a suitable color for her, and the outfit is better suited for a luncheon at a private country club. No matter what the occasion, Diana’s ring always makes the photo. It must be her most cherished possession in this marriage. Viewers always accused Meghan of looking into the camera, but Kate never misses an opportunity to pose and be over-exposed.
    Pink is never a good look on fair complexions with light hair. Bea’s dress needs to be better fitted. Young women in the royal bubble seem content with the matronly look. Though the late Queen almost always wore suits with matching hats, she always appeared more refreshed and modern. Note they priced Bea’s dress but not Kate’s. Her husband must be someone other than the super successful businessman they report because the only time you see him or hear anything about him is when he’s with her. They’re still auditioning for the working royal position. Pryinka’s colors could be lighter, and Nick’s suit better tailored, but Pryanka looks younger than Kate and Bea. The deep pink looks great on Issa. She also looks younger than Kate and Bea.

  21. HeyKay says:

    The fabric looks heavy and warm and the dress looks a size too big on Bea.
    PCJ a black dress in July? With black tights and boots? Too dark, a nice summer dress instead.
    Garfield and Jonas look good in the suits.

    Where are all the movies stars tho?
    Wimbeldon used to pull lots of big names, International stars.
    Connery, Caine, Johnny Carson, etc. every day had several stars front and center.
    Aiden Turner, Cumberbatch, etc.

  22. tamsin says:

    I think Bea’s dress just looks heavy and hot, but it shows off what a nice figure she has . She still looks nice and slim despite the voluminous skirt. It seems that Bea and Edo have been pictured a lot in the media lately. At least they appear much higher profile than they have been. Love the pink Issa dress. I think Priyanka looks great, but again, boots in July just makes me feel hot looking at her. but over the top is also part of Priyanka’s style.

  23. Tamra says:

    Bea, has been taking the shot!

  24. Kingston says:

    Apropos of nothing really: I often wonder why H& M never ever mention Beatrice.


    Not in speaking, not in writings not in interviews…….e.g: H mentions Eugenie and Jack several times in Spare but never once mentions Beatrice.

    Everyone knows that H&M are very close to Eugenie & Jack. And everyone knows the Eugenie & her sister were very close growing up……all the way into adulthood. And very likely are still just as close (even though I’ve wondered if they really are still as close). But anyhoooooo.

    And then, just a few months ago, there was Beatrice hugging pissM0r0n, H&M’s arch enemy. I believe Beatrice said or did something unforgiveable and H wrote her off…..perhaps even before he met M.

    • Tamra says:

      And Bea, is the one taking care of Fergie, not Eugenie, according to the tabloids!

      • Lady D says:

        Didn’t she just have another baby?

      • Saucy&Sassy says:

        Tamra, that makes sense especially as Eugenie has a very small baby.

      • Kingston says:

        Hardly. Fergie doesn’t need nursing care. She was on her podcast, live, just this past week, giving updates on her situation. Also talking about taking the corgis for their walk.

      • Jaded says:

        @Kingston, I had the exact same surgery as Fergie and they had me up and walking the next day. It’s no piece of cake to recover from and you have to take things VERY easy for a while, but you’re not bedridden for weeks. You’re encouraged to walk for a half hour or so daily once the drainage tubes are out.

  25. Elsa says:

    I just figured out why I like all these fussy boring English dresses. It’s because I’m from the 70’s and 80’s and we considered that an elegant style. It’s cause I’m old.

  26. Concern Fae says:

    Saw a pic of Andrew Garfield sitting next to Arianna Grande. Then I realized Tom Hiddleston was sitting in the row in front of them. How the times have changed.

  27. jferber says:

    I thought everyone looked terrific! No shade from me at all. Bea has REALLY upped her style game since her marriage. I’d like to see her compete with Khate for the Pretty Young Royal title. Make her a working royal, Charles, and you’ll never regret it.

  28. Mei says:

    I love Bea’s dress. I’d wear it in a heartbeat, and I low key love the slightly long sleeves too. The colour washes her out a bit, but if it was in light blue or green it would have looked much better. Or white!

  29. WhatKateHerselfSaidOnPageSix says:

    I’m always interested in what the royals sisters wear. This so so much fabric though.
