Back in my teens all the magazines were filled with outfit pictures of Princess Diana and Princess Caroline of Monaco. Nowadays, all eyes are on the Duchess of Cambridge, and her fashion choices are discussed worldwide.  But, of course, there are other royals whose style game is on point:

Princess Charlotte is Karl Lagerfeld’s royal muse and has inherited the style gene from her Mum, Caroline, and grandmother, Grace Kelly.

Queen Rania of Jordan’s recent airport look with red tweed trench coat drew lots of attention.

Queen Letizia of Spain likes to mix things up. She often wears polished Modern Classic looks, alternated with fashion forward outfits like this sleeveless leather dress.

I also like Queen Maxima’s bold style with lots of colour and penchant for dramatic hats.

Are there any royal figures whose style you love?

Nadya enjoyed this article about Adele’s fashion that poses the question if her new album will be the one that finally delivers her place in the fashion power structure, along with peers like Beyoncé, Rihanna and Taylor Swift.

Vildy likes Janice’s idea of creating a holiday look by taking a favourite style or signature garment you wear often and then trying to find a similar piece in a “festive fabric”.

Since ugly holiday sweaters have been a recent topic of interest, Xtabay thought YLFers might enjoy this short round-up.

MsMary came across a fun article about female TV meteorologists all wearing the same dress, and this thoughtful counterpoint at the Washington Post.

She also wanted to share “the very, very, VERY best ‘what women over 50 shouldn’t wear’ list in the history of the internet: I hate those kinds of things and this one made me want to stand up and cheer.”

Anne thought that The Dressmaker, starring Kate Winslet, was visually very interesting. In this article the two costume designers share their thoughts.

Isabel liked this TED talk by Jessica Quirk because it’s a powerful reminder of why caring about the way you dress is not frivolous. 

“What is so wrong about owning the age we have and wanting brands to cater to our specific requirements instead of struggling with the concept of ‘looking young’?” Celia thought this post by Catherine provided some interesting food for thought.
