There’s a thin line between high fashion and foolishness. The daughters of Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson, Princess Eugenie and Princess Beatrice crossed that line when they arrived for the Royal Wedding in little matronly outfits and hideous hats.

Princess Eugenie wore an outfit by Vivienne Westwood. Irish designer Philip Treacy completed her blue and floral print ensemble that resembled a curtain, with a hideous hat.

Her sister, Princess Beatrice, wore a beige Valentino couture ensemble with gloves by Cornelia James and an even more ridiculous Philip Treacy. Her headpiece sat in the front of her head and was more of a small structure than a hat. She looked like she was wearing antlers.

OMG..those hats are the latest “must haves” for halloween costumes

Those poor young women. Couldn’t anyone have told them how awful they looked. Those outfits really do invite the title of Ugly Sisters even though the girls themselves are quite attractive. Please someone tell them that a designer name doesn’t necessarily mean a delightful look.

so sad – they look like the ugly sisters at Cinderella’s wedding – I cannot believe someone didn’t tell them beforehand…unbelievable spectacle

They resembled the step-sisters in “Cinderella.”

My god. The so called Princess Eugenie looks liked the creature from the black lagoon. And I’m not talking about her outfit… My god, her eyes alone look like the black hole of Calcutta. Her done her makeup?? Tar Man??…. And lets not go near that silly hat she wore… Where did she get that from??? The five and dime store, or the pick and grab store? She would be the ideal candidate for a Morticia in a remake movie

I thought this was a joke when I saw this picture. Why do they look like the evil stepsisters from Cinderella.They just wanted attention. Hideous outfits

Utterly Gruesome Twosome – It delights my envious heart that all that money and supposed breeding cannot produce a smidgeon of good taste-thanks ,Sisters!

I liked Beatrice’s outfit but Eugenie’s is a little on the hideous side.

I’m sorry to say this but Princess Eugenies’ teeth are so over bleached, so terribly over whitened they could be used at heathrow to guide the planes in! That hat I am speechless about, and her dark eye makeup makes her look like Christina Onassis. Do these girls allow designers to dress them? Because no one would dress themselves that badly

everyone seems to be being horrible about princess Eugenie, although when we were watching the wedding it was her all the men watching with us picked out as lovely. maybe because she is an actual womanly shape, the dress showed off her bust and that’s what men, as opposed to bitchy queeny people involved in fashion think

I liked them both. They are young and fun. Good for them. Too bad for everyone else with sticks up their butts. I think they showed spunk, fun and guts.

..the blue ensemble worn by Princess Eugenie isn’t too bad…BUT..that “hat” worn by Princess Beatrice is too much for words…not antlers as suggested in this article…more like a statue mounted to her forehead..

Wow! For a moment I thought that I was looking at the opening of the South African Parliament. Poor taste has no national boundaraies. Over dressed pea brained bag of sh@te.

They both look hideous. Princess Beatrice looks like something out of a zombie movie with her dark makeup around her eyes. Maybe they are both pissed because mom was not invited to the wedding and this is their way of getting back at royal grandma.

Beatrice is absolutely lovely. She could wear a heap of spaghetti on her head and it would work. I admit that I didn’t like the hat at first, but it’s grown on me. Perhaps her taste is simply too refined for the simple-minded masses.

Indeed, some of the horse’s backsides were more attractive than these two, with virtually unlimited funds and the World’s top designers falling over themselves to dress people attending the wedding it is amazing that these fashion faux pas were permitted to see the light of day.

Those two provided the only dark spot on an otherwise beautiful wedding. Why were they really there?

hideous isn’t the word for it! Please, anyone who knows how I can find a photo of these two sitting behind Mum at Westminster Abbey, let me know. I may want to turn it into a poster!

I thought Princess Beatrice’s hat would be appropriate for a Klingon wedding.

Ahh and here I was thinking that I was the only one on earth who appreciated the hilarity of the hats worn at the wedding. Certainly, Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie wore the worst examples but there were a number of close runner ups. I am sure that Princess Beatrice (perhaps in an effort to economize) grabbed an architectural medallion off one of the palace walls; spray painted it to match her outfit and attached it to her head. If only she had just slipped it lower — it might have passed as a mask. And Princess Eugenie (her of the unfortunate name) should be jailed along with persons such as Victoria Beckham for crimes against orthinology. There are poor denuded birds all over Great Britian wondering where their feathers went. Well, we now know. Their feathers were attahed to boats which appear to be sinking down the face of the wearers. The primary designer of these foolish disasters Phillip Treacy should not only be jailed but sentenced to hanging for his crimes against the birdies. I do so hope that by the time Harry is married the ladies of Great Britain and any other ladies who were guests at the wedding ceremony will have realized that less is more. And that they looked like fools.

The only thing worse was their makeup – they both looked like racoons with all the black around their eyes.

I think the hats are festive and flamboyantly happy. Beautiful women though. But since we’re talking about hats, the guy in the uniform has a silly one too. His has just been around longer.

It might be in the best interest of the commonwealth if the Queen found a couple of nice Catholic boys to marry Beatrice and Eugenie ASAP!

Living, tangible proof that money cannot buy class and taste.
Did these 2 clowns actually look at themselves in a mirror befoe setting foot outside their respective doors?

Eugenie’s hat looks like blue waffle infection. (Word of caution to anyone who doesn’t know what that is and “googles” it. lol)

I find it interesting that Kate and her sister Pippa are referred to as commoners, but they looked elegant and regal and sophisticated while thse two “royals” looked awful.

Well, Sarah never had much taste, as well. So Imma blame the hat maker.

surely there were people around them when they were choosing/ getting ready who could advise that perhaps the outfits and hats were not exactly flattering?????….and somebody actually designed the stuff !!!

I’m British and most of the hats the British wear are absolutely ridiculous! They look like clowns from a circus. They have to stay away from designer Treacy, hes making them look like jokes. They are becoming the laughing stock of the world with their awful hats!! Only a few ppl can get away with wearing hats and it suits them. As to the two Princesses on the Wedding day they looked aweful!! Who on earth dresses them? They are following in their mothers footsteps for big fashion mistakes. Those hats!!! oh my gosh, what an embarressment! Loved their shoes but those hats! YIKES!! One of them looks like
an alien from Star Trek…absolutely UGLY!! Couldn’t she see that for
herself??!! My mind boggles that she did not see this in the mirror?!!

Forget the hat, did anyone notice how they got out of their car when they arrived at the Reception under the portico. They didn’t wait for their dad, he didn’t wait for them, and they each just proceeded to walk, single file into the hall. Not waiting to help one another as “Ladies or Gentlemen” !

Beatrice should quite simply have donned a set of reindeer horns instead, borrowed from the local museum. That pitch black eyeliner round her eyes looks like she’s been practicising applying it the whole week, one layer over another. Eugenie looks like the late Queen mother, with her hair dyed dark brown, with a set of lounge chair ornaments on her head.
