Princess Eugenie wore Fendi to the Vogue World event in London: lovely?

On Thursday, the biggest fashion event of the week went down in London. The event was Vogue World, a kick-off for London Fashion Week, where celebrities, designers and royalty mingled and got an extensive preview of many new collections. I cannot even believe how many people came out for this – it had a more star-studded attendance than this year’s BAFTAs. This is the second Vogue World event (last year’s event was in New York) and they might want to keep it in London, given the turnout. Speaking of, Princess Eugenie walked her first carpet since giving birth to her second son back in May/June. Eugenie wore this Fendi couture look – it’s really striking and she looks great. She probably wanted to be more covered up and that’s fine. The color is wonderful on her.

Princess Beatrice was also there, with her husband Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi. Bea wore Richard Quinn, and I believe the gloves are built-in. I don’t hate the idea of Beatrice in a black-and-yellow pattern, but the execution of this dress is throwing me off a little. I think it should have been a full-length gown, and there shouldn’t be so much fabric on the bust. (Also: do you think Bea is on Ozempic?)

Emilia Clarke in Christian Dior. You know what? I like this.

Claire Foy in Moncler. It looks like a knockoff Vivienne Westwood which fell off the back of a truck. What this dress does to her boobs is a crime.

Letitia Wright in Prada. Genuinely love this.

    I love the colour of Eugenie’s dress and the style from the waist down but the top part and neck in particular are leaving me feeling a bit claustrophobic. She looks a little swamped by it.

    • Genevieve says:

      Agree. It looks like the fabric is layered/bunched, bulky and uncomfortable to wear.

    • It Really Is You, Not Me says:

      I’m only 5 feet and a size 10-12 right now and it’s hard to bring the drama, remain covered up, and not cross the line into frumpy.

      This dress is beautiful but it crosses that frump line a little. Maybe if the sleeves were just a little shorter?

      • Bettyrose says:

        I’m 5’3” but sounds like we have similar styling issues. I had that exact thought. I’m super casual but with dresses I want a tailored look to emphasize curves and avoid the frump.

    • Krista says:

      Came here to say the same thing, @SaraCS! It’s way too much on top – it could have been executed better. Maybe the fullness on the arms but a v-neck, if that makes sense?

    • michyk says:

      agree, @SaraCS. maybe if it was in a lighter weigh fabric? it does seem so heavy at the top. but i agree that the color is fantastic.

    • poorellensmith says:

      I agree. It looks like the dress is wearing her, not the other way around. The color is lovely, though.

    • RoyalCommoner says:

      I kinda like this dress on her. Thought she looked amazing. The styling is not great. I think it would’ve made a difference to have her hair attached so the neck line would more obvious and elingated and also maybe smaller earrings wouldve made it look better. But the color looks beautiful on her.

  2. Cherry says:

    Yikes on Beatrice’s weight loss. That’s all I got.

  3. Bettyrose says:

    Eugenie looks really pretty but I’m not feeling the cut of the dress, although I get wanting to be covered up. I still think she’d look great in maybe a 50s style defined waist but flared skirt.

    • JanetDR says:

      That would be a much better look! I love the color on her but she doesn’t look at all comfortable. Or maybe that’s just me knowing how I’d feel in a cut like that…

  4. Becks1 says:

    Eugenie looks really good, love that color on her.

    Bea’s dress would almost work, but it needs be floor length and then needs to lose either the cape element or the gloves (or both.) There’s just too much going on visually with the gloves and the cape and the bodice and the shorter hem. Changing one of those elements would have made a big difference IMO.

    Love Emilia’s dress.

    • Genevieve says:

      I think the shorter length saves her dress from being frumpy, because the fabric is such an old-fashioned style, and it’s so all covering. I kind of like the cape and gloves for adding some drama, though. I just think the pleating around the bodice is puzzling.

    • Bee (not THAT Bee) says:

      the cape needs an ultralight lining or different printing technique. seeing the inside of the fabric with the white backing showing looks cheap/unfinished. they could have made the cape from powernmesh with a matching print so it would be sheer and not have an unprinted inside.

  5. Mei says:

    That colour is gorgeous on Eugenie. The dress is a cool idea but I think it adds a lot of weight to her frame. Bless her though, she looks a bit scared, I don’t think she’s used to being styled/photographed like this.

  6. Anna says:

    The material of Eugenie’s dress is mesmerizing, and the colour is gorgeous. I’m not sure how to feel about the cut and overall design though.

    I think I would’ve liked Jenna’s dress but that lace monstrosity of a poncho is just awful.

  7. Concern Fae says:

    Claire Foy looks like she’s in a backup dress and not happy about it.

    Emilia Clarke looks great. She seems like such a cool person but has had the worst luck in projects. GOT ended so badly as to kill off its cultural impact. And she’s been in underwhelming projects in the Terminator, Star Wars, and Marvel universes. Hope she finds a niche.

  8. Loretta says:

    Emilia Clarke is so beautiful

  9. Jais says:

    Gorgeous color on Eugenie. Bea’s actually been pretty little for at least a year now. Love a red lip but for some reason I wasn’t feeling it with that dress. Still thought she looked good though.

  10. Mrs. Smith says:

    Eugenie looks lovely!! Great color and that shiny fabric can be tough to wear, but it looks good on her. I’m nitpicking, but would love to see this dress with a bit of a boatneck instead of the fabric coming up that high. Bea’s style has improved immeasurably. I love this look on her!

  11. Tessa says:

    I hope Edo was not telling her to lose weight or suggesting it. She looked healthier before.

  12. Tessa says:

    I like Eugenie gown and green looks good on her.

  13. Carmen says:

    The color of Eugenie’s dress is gorgeous but the style isn’t doing her any favors. She’s a very pretty young woman and that dress makes her look like a frump.

    Somebody feed Beatrice a cheeseburger. Several, in fact.

    Letitia Wright looks marvelous.

  14. TheWigletOfWails says:

    I like Eugenie’s dress, but I wish she’d gone bigger and bolder with the hair and added a statement clutch to her look. Good to see her stepping out and not keeping herself locked in until she’s lost all the baby weight.

  15. SURE says:

    Loved B’s look from head to ankles – the shiny black shoes were a no. Edo’s white jacket and newly acquired scruff made B&E the stand out couple on the red carpet. I thought their combined look was a cross between old Hollywood and old aristo.

  16. Eurydice says:

    Eugenie’s face is beautiful, love the makeup and the earrings, love the color of the dress, hate the dress. Too much fabric, too much swathing and the bodice ends at a weird spot on her arms, like she stuck her arms through a large bag.

    Beatrice’s dress probably looks better on a hangar than on a person – too much draping and bunching.

    I haven’t like Prada in a while, but Letitia looks great.

  17. Meredith says:

    When I first saw the header pic I thought it was Hayley Atwell tbh. Maybe it’s the hairstyle?

    I think I’d like Emilia Clarkes dress best to wear out to a nice dinner.

  18. Harper says:

    Love Eugenie’s hair and makeup. The dress is okay; not the end all in complementing a new mother’s figure. I like Bea’s dress and her hair. It suits her and is interesting, at least. No comments about Edo’s new scruffy look? I bet William is so jealous.

  19. Catherine says:

    I think Eugenie looks amazing. The color is wonderful on her and I like the cut and the draping. I don’t think it overwhelms at all. Remember this is her first post baby high fashion/red carpet moment. I would imagine she was feeling a little insecure. The cut and the draping and the structure creates shape, catches the eye and is forgiving. It is a very artsy/architectural design. I love it. As for Beatrice. I love the overall design/cut of the dress but dislike the print and the gloved hands.

    • Saucy&Sassy says:

      Catherine, I think she’s feeling a little insecure, too. If she was feeling fully confident, I think she would have carried this dress off well. As it is, I love the color and shine and I think she looks lovely.

  20. Lexistential says:

    Gorgeous color on Eugenie. The design is ehhh. I can see why it would be a comfortable choice, but it looks like a couture sack.

    Beatrice looks great. I actually like the design and the shorter length- if it was longer, the dress would swallow her whole. (I don’t think she’s on Ozempic because she has been a similar size for years, but I do think she’s super-vigilant of her body and attractiveness.)

    Poor Claire Foy. Someone did her dirty with that basic backup dress. Love Letitia Wright’s look.

  21. Lauren says:

    My biggest issue with Bea’s dress is that the cape isn’t lined or in a reversible fabric.

  22. Chantal says:

    Eugenie looks gorgeous! Her makeup, and the color and style of the dress are great for her although I’m not wild about the top. I’m surprised at Beatrice. She has been knocking it out of the park with her outfits lately but this one is a little underwhelming and a little too busy. Still, she and Edo make quite the fashion statements!

    Emilia looks gorgeous as well. I think Claire Foy’s dress would better if she had worn a strapless bra and I don’t like her shoes. Leticia looks nice but also underwhelming and tired.
    I was wondering where my mother’s doily went! Give it back Jenna!

  23. Digital Unicorn says:

    The York Princess’s both look lovely – fresh, modern and stylish. And yes I’m going there with the comparisons to a certain Duchess, who looks like weeks old dish water. Mumble’s makeup ages her so badly – its harsh and does nothing for her.

    • Linda says:

      @Digital Unicorn
      It’s sad that the “duchess” lives rent free in your mind. No one should have that much influence in your life.

  24. Kirsten says:

    I like every look except Letitia’s — I feel like if they were feathers instead of petals it would be better, but it looks too much like Big Bird.

  25. MsIam says:

    I hate Eugenie’s dress, it looks like she’s wrapped in a duvet cover. Emilia looks the best out of the rest of them.

  26. Ameerah M says:

    I LOVE Eugenie’s dress so much. I think it’s beautiful design and the color is pretty as well. I like Beatrice’s dress in theory – I think it would work better on someone else. I don’t she has the carriage to pull it off. Emilia looks beautiful. I abhor Leticia’s look. I actually like Jenna Coleman’s dress – again this is a Vogue event. I want to see more than pretty dresses. I want to see some edge, some risk some…FASHUN

  27. hangonamin says:

    i dislike both of their looks. eugenie’s has a lovely color but looks like the fabric is wearing her and she literally has no neck and no shape in it. looks like someone cut some holes over a satin pillow case, she stuck her head over it and they cinched the waist to a skirt. she actually has a lovely hourglass figure and they made her look frumpy af. Hard pass.
    there’s way too much going on with beatrice’s outfit…cape, long gloves, yellow on black print. she’s like a walking optical illusion. the makeup is not flattering as well; that is not her color or red lipstick. hard pass too.
    both are beautiful women styled and dressed suboptimally.

  28. Cecil says:

    Y’all… the top of Eugenie’s dress looks like the cape they put on you at the hairdresser’s… there’s ways to be covered up without being frumpy! Eugenie should take some note from Ava DuVernay.

    I agree with everyone here who said that Beatrice either needs to lose the cape or the gloves. It’s too much pattern AND volume. Otherwise, though, I love it! Letitia Wright’s outfit is so fun. I love the feathers around the sleeves. Jenna is lovely enough to pull off that look. At least the doily is just directing all attention to her incredible face!

    Emilia’s dress is serviceable. It doesn’t excite me, but it fits her well and is suitable for the occasion. The less said about Claire Foy the better. I don’t know; I just flipped through old red carpet photos of her, and I think she’s one of the actresses who TRIES, but she just never quite lands the look. As long as she’s having fun, I guess, god bless!

  29. QuiteContrary says:

    I am not suggesting shoulder pads — shudder — but the cape-like top of Eugenie’s dress makes her look slope-shouldered. And I’m not wild about her shoes. That color, though, is gorgeous on her and she should make it her signature.

    I’d like Beatrice’s dress a lot more if it was in a plain jewel tone.

    Claire Foy’s dress is tragic, but Letitia Wright looks stunning.

  30. Murphy says:

    I doubt Bea is on ozempic, she’s been that thin for a while now, even when she had her daughter she didn’t put much on. Those fat-shaming tabloids in the 2010’s really got to her.

  31. tamsin says:

    Seems the trash tabloids are being kinder to Beatrice and Eugenie these days, and Beatrice especially is higher profile. I’ve always thought Eugenie was very pretty and that green is a wonderful colour on her. I think it is too much dress, though, and Eugenie looks a little bit swamped by it. I think Beatrice looks lovely and I think the tea length is perfect. Bea has been slim since she married Edo, and she looks really slim these days. Her waist looks tiny and she really shows off waisted dresses very well. I think Letitia Wright had the best look.

  32. Cerys says:

    It’s a big thumbs down from me for both outfits. Eugenie looks like a sack of potatoes and Beatrice looks like a pantomime villain.

  33. Jen says:

    I know Bea’s not the first to wear an outfit with integrated gloves, but this is the first time it’s hit me: worse bathroom complication than even a jumpsuit.

  34. Christine says:

    Jenna Coleman looks like she grabbed something from the very back of the Victoria costume department. It is hard to make her look awful, but this is definitely the way.

  35. Philly says:

    Both of the York sisters look bad here, honestly. Kudos to them for experimenting but Eugenic looks like she’s wearing a giant satin sheet and by the look on her face she knows it’s tragic. Bea looks overwhelmed by all that pattern, the gloves and cape take it to costume territory.

    • DaisyMay says:

      Eugenie looks beautiful but the dress is a crime. What an awful way to dress a woman. Just atrocious.

  36. Ok ShoppeGirlMN says:

    She look gorgeous! love the glamorous hair and makeup and this is her best color! She is stunning. I love the idea of the dress. But wish the upper part looked less like a hairdresser cape. We need some skin around the neck. And I don’t like the layered swath around her waist/hips. It adds weight to her middle and it would have been prettier without the extra adornment. Still, this look is classy and she looks amazing. Can’t wait to see what’s next!
