Yes, this all be true about purple but what was Princess Anne thinking yesterday? I am no fashion critic, but really Anne? Be still my heart, when the camera focused on you at the Royal Wedding, my eye balls screamed with visual discontent.
It has been reported that you don't care about fashion. So why not then, something just plain and simple? Does the House of Windsor, have a fashion consultant?
Did you seek out a designer or an upholsterer? I thought your floral coat, an old comfortable couch on it's way to Good Will. Or better yet, did you defrock a royal window of it's dressing and have a Scarlett O'Hara, kind of moment?
I am not sure where your hat ended and your hair began, other than color to define it? A giant poof of spray and glue adorning your royal head, waiting for a homeless bird to seek refuge.
My guess, Dear Anne, is that you have flawless skin, perfect teeth and a beautiful smile that somehow didn't translate well thru the instrument of capture. Your unexpurgated floral array of the color purple, stole your show. I'm usually a pretty positive person Anne, but somehow you have just ruffled my creative feathers!
