    No the skirt and top don’t work...it’s not your monitor! The undertones are off just enough to clash. I loved that black pencil skirt/white sweater combo. Meghan’s clothing rarely fits correctly.

    On the rare occasions that I watch the red carpet shows before the Oscars, I wonder why these beautiful people end up looking so awful...but they must think they look great. It’s almost as if they’ve been “punked” by their stylist.

    I never watched “Suits” but in photos I’ve seen, Meghan looked great. She can look so elegant but also so frumpy. She really needs us! :D

    If I were British, I would be so grateful there's still Charles and Wm. and his children between Harry and the Crown. Harry and Meghan can be the tabloid fodder, while the rest carry on. Personally, I hope they go as far rogue as possible so they're as clearly disassociated with British Royal tradition as they can be. Moving to the US, ,where Congresspeople wear Halloween costumes to vote is definitely more suited to their "style" imo lol

    Idk. Here, at least, she'd have a lot of competition for both her agenda and the press attention - and absolutely no direct peer to negatively compare her to. Plus, It's not like we don't already have the Kardashians, etc. And she's not directly associated with US politics - so she won't be impacting any of our institutions (if the batgirl costume weren't enough to see that that horse has left the barn :D). I have a feeling they're going to end up here. At least until they divorce in 5'ish years, imo.

    WOW. What a fabulous cake. I just wish they had left the glasses off.

    It's really really well done. A lot of face type cakes end up having only a passing resemblance to the subject. This really captures her typical expression very well.

    I'd love to see an explanation of how this was done.

    We need a link for the photo @SugarQueen. I’ve googled and can’t find it anywhere. Thanks! :)

    ETA: While we’re waiting we can “feast” our eyes on the Cake International Show in Birmingham UK this weekend.

    I li[​IMG]ke her in this dress

    And I really like this pantsuit on her

    [​IMG]

    And I have to agree that long purple dress is sensational on her

    This is the only one I don't like: I just don't like this lingerie look on anyone. It seems a bit common for a Princess.

    All of these outfits show her independent, confident, and strong. She seems to have grown into herself at this stage and these clothes and her deportment show it.

    I love this last dress with the sheer floral top. Diana wore clothing so well and I think had an eye of her own as to style and what looked good on her, specifically. Unfortunately, she was often a victim of 80's fashion to a certain degree, with it's overly "pouffy" sleeves and ruffles.

    This last example was well suited to her tall, slim figure -very "princess-y", yet elegant and serious at the same time, in my book.

    The "lingerie" photo is so unfortunate because, otherwise, this is simply a stunning photo of her!

    I just don't like the black lace straps and trim. It makes it look like a slip. If the straps had been the same fabric, or even chain or something it would have been better.

    IMHO.

    I got the photo from a Facebook post by Global Sugar Art. The chef/ owner of the company is one of the judges. Embarrassed to admit I have no idea how to link it??

    Diana is gorgeous, but I still don't like that dress. I think she would be fabulous in the dress the woman next to her is wearing.

    But Diana was exploring getting out there and being a bit "shocking" to show up TRF and especially Charles. It's not horrible, I just don't like that style.
