Smart ladies love movies, this week in trailers, November 30, 2015

Movie Trailer Monday

Each week I review movie trailers that came out the previous week or for movies that are about to premiere. Some of these movies I am excited about, some I am mildly curious about, and the rest I make fun of!

Notable movies coming out this weekend

A Royal Night Out

This movie looks delightful, simply delightful. It’s the type of movie I will own and watch repeatedly whenever I need a pick me up. I especially enjoy Bel Powley as Princess Margaret who seems like a hoot. [I really do not care how historically accurate this is, because it looks like so much fun and so upbeat. It is weird seeing Emily Watson play a frumpy mother, though. I don’t want to believe she is that old. -M]

Movies I can’t wait to see in an ACTUAL theater

The Boss, April 8, 2016

I reject Kristen Bell as a dowdy single mom mainly because I’ve been re-watching Veronica Mars with my mom and yet this movie is still a must-see because I think Bell and McCarthy seem like a really funny pair. Also Girl Scouts having a throw-down is very funny to me as a former Girl Scout. [Oh my god I love Melissa’s character so much. Those giant bows are pure joy. And hey, a feminist message to boot! -M]

Captain America: Civil War, May 6, 2016

So excited for this movie as Captain America next to Ant Man is MY FAVORITE Marvel CMU hero and I’m happy he gets to beat up Tony Stark/Iron Man who is, let’s face it kind of a smug jerk. [Yeah his movies are BY FAR the best. To me, the messages are the most modern and Chris Evans is so charming. Plus, they begat my dear AGENT CARTER. Now I want to watch these movies again! -M]

Central Intelligence, June 17, 2016

The only thing that would make a movie starring Kevin Hart and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is if they found a way to add in Vin Diesel; unfortunately, that awesomeness is NOT in this movie but this movie still looks rad as hell. [I love this time of year because we get so many BIG trailers months in advance. It was really touch and go there for a while. This is absolutely something we will watch on HBO every night in bed. It will be our new Let’s Be Cops. -M]

I won’t go to an ACTUAL theater but will pay for it on Amazon

Barbershop: The Next Cut, April 15, 2016

I LOVE when the Barbershop movies are on cable they are such a good time. Cedric the Entertainer is a national treasure–that man never fails to make me laugh. For the third installment they have added Nicki Minaj and Lamorne Morris to the main cast –YAY! [Lamorne Morris was such a great hire, speaking of Let’s Be Cops. These movies are such a good time, and always have something interesting to say about community and relationships. -M]

You would have to PAY me to see it in an ACTUAL theater

The Other Side of the Door, March 11, 2016

And then there was a horror movie. Here is a rule to live by, when a lady tells you cryptically you can talk to your dead son but whatever you do DON’T open the door, DON’T OPEN THE DOOR. [Hollywood is making crap like this to rake in all the dough but not enough people are watching movies that challenge viewers, unlike TV, which has had much success with that lately. Obviously this looks like a well-made horror movie, but I get tired of seeing this shit every week and not enough movies directed by women. I’m cranky this morning. -M]

Movie Trailer Monday

Each week I review movie trailers that came out the previous week or for movies that are about to premiere. Some of these movies I am excited about, some I am mildly curious about, and the rest I make fun of!

Notable movies coming out this weekend


I’m going to see this on Thanksgiving and I could not be more excited. I LOVED Rocky (full disclosure I just watched it for the first time a month ago). I also am a HUGE Michael B. Jordan fan and want this to be HUGE so that he get’s cast in everything. AND lastly this trailer is BOMB! [I think I am going to see Trumbo because it looks fun. I will note that I just heard MBJ is getting Oscar talk for this movie. I am thankful for any movie that brings MBJ and Tessa Thompson to the red carpet. -M]

Man Up, is out onDemand and for Rent

Lake Bell is so cute with a British accent. I also spotted Sharon Horgan briefly in the below trailer which makes me want to tell you to go watch Catastrophe because it’s AMAZING! [Simon Pegg foreverrrrrrrrrr! This looks adorable. Now I want to rewatch Catastrophe AND Spaced this holiday season. -M]

Movies I can’t wait to see in an ACTUAL theater

How to Be Single, February 12, 2016

I adore Jake Lacey and will watch him in anything. I wish that Damon Wayans Jr. would have been given an actual line in the trailer and also that he would become a giant star. I will say I laughed a lot at the end of this trailer, Rebel Wilson is a gem. [Dakota Johnson’s hair is adorable. This looks really funny and I will totally see it but aren’t we tired of stories about women finding love in the big city? Sigh. -M]

The Huntsman Winter’s War, April 22, 2016

This movie looks awesome. Like the original the costumes, art direction, and CGI all look fantastic. ALSO I liked that three of the four leads are women. NOW if only one of them could be a person of color this movie would be a complete win. [While the makeup and costumes look wonderful, I don’t particularly care for modern retellings of fairy tales. I was thinking I would like this if it was a TV show but I don’t watch Grimm or Once Upon a Time so that doesn’t hold up. -M]

I won’t go to an ACTUAL theater but will pay for it on Amazon

Extraction, December 18, 2015

This reminds me of the Henry Cavill/Bruce Willis CIA movie from a couple of years ago. Henry Cavill is a WAY better actor than Kellan Lutz who plays Willis’ son here –let’s face it Henry Cavill is always the best choice. Regardless of Lutz I will most likely enjoy this at 2 in the morning when there is nothing else on the TV. [Kellan Lutz is a cold, dead fish, and I am surprised he’s getting work. I will not pay for this but I will watch it with Katie when it comes to one of the 70 movie channels she has. -M]

Zoolander 2, February 12, 2016

I love watching Zoolander on TV hence why this isn’t in the “theater” section. [I will watch this in the theater. I will watch this in my house. I will watch this with a mouse. Random notes: Glad that Will Ferrell has returned! Benedict Cumberbatch looks scary without eyebrows. I hope there are tons of crazy cameos. Kyle Mooney, one of the funniest people on the current SNL season, has an actual speaking role (he’s not in the imdb listing). Can’t wait!!!! -M]

You would have to PAY me to see it in an ACTUAL theater

Gods of Egypt, February 26, 2016

I don’t understand why Hollywood insists there was this many white people in ancient Egypt. The CGI also looks like shit. [Like, there are not this many white people in Richmond. Gerard Butler is my cue to avoid this piece of crap. Also, that kid with the shitty blond wig. And Jaime Lannister has a magical eye? This might be my least favorite movie since I, Frankenstein. -M]

Smart ladies love fashion, summer Royal Round-up 2015

Royal Ascot, Lucite shoes, FUN PRINTS, a wedding in Monaco, yachts (yes plural), cute babies, and so so many HATS in our EPIC (seriously kids this post is long but FUN) summer 2015 royal fashion round-up.

Queen Elizabeth II of England

August 15, 2015

We start with the QEII or as I like to call her the “Empress of Easter Hats.” Here she is wearing a pale pink suit. The one fault I see is that the texture of her jacket obscures her pearls and broach. ALSO I really prefer her in brighter colors.

Isn’t August too hot for gloves? Yeesh. -M

July 21, 2015

Like this bright blue dress with colorful embroidery. Several things the Queen fully commits to: always wearing a handbag (you may need lipstick and a tissue), wearing pearls and a brooch (you never know what fancy thing your assistant will make you do), and lastly making sure her hair style can support either a hat or tiara at ALL TIMES.

I love the color of this! So saucy! -M

July 16, 2015

I like that she removed her brooch from her coat to her dress once the weather warmed up.

I’m not on board with this shape of hat she always seems to wear. -M

July 14, 2015

Prince Phillip kind of looks like he is heckling her. I love this color of dress.

Very pretty and vintage-y! Love. -M

July 10, 2015

Usually the Queen is very matchy matchy but I LOVE that she wore a hot pink hat with her yellow jacket.

It’s also kind of a sheer/basketweave, which is, ummm… interesting. -M

July 09, 2015

Both she and the man behind look like they are about to take names and kick ass. That hat is not her friend it looks like a bucket.

I wish her purses were more exciting. -M

June 20, 2015

Out of all her black handbags I think I like this patent leather one the most. I also like this brooch.

I want to go where she is where you can wear a wooly coat in June. Is she wearing tan stockings? Sigh. -M

June 19, 2015

I’m kind of meh on this but I included it because I enjoy that when you look at all her outfits in a row she is her own Easter parade.

I think I just don’t care for most hats. -M

June 18, 2015

It also appears that she wore a buckled shoe to ascot instead of her normal black pumps. The buckle does seem more appropriate for horse racing.

The color is nice? Am I getting bored already? Oh dear. I hope Maxima shows up soon. -M

June 17, 2015

I wish she would fix that dudes tie. Oh let’s be real she totally told someone to tell that dude to fix his tie.

This is too dowdy. I like when her coats are a bit more fitted. -M

June 16, 2015

I wish we could see the dress under her coat because this might just be my favorite look of hers. I love her in the dark pinks like fuchsia, magenta, or hot.

I hope she smacked that guy for his condescending look towards her. -M

Queen Mathilde of Belgium

July 21, 2015

This is the first of several instances of ladies pairing white with gold shoes and I LIKE IT. I don’t however love this overall look but I don’t hate it either.

I like this, but it also looks like a beach cover up. -M

July 21, 2015

I really LOVE and WANT this dress and LOVE King Philippe’s orange tie.

UGH, perfection! So early in the post, too! -M

July 20, 2015

I love this dress TOO! Mathilde is getting down with PATTERNS –I LOVE IT!

Wow, how cute! I like the boatneck too. -M

July 15, 2015

LOVE THIS! I probably wouldn’t look good in that skirt but I want that top for work.

Plus her shoes are pink! BRAVA! -M

July 03, 2015

This is also quite fun. I have decided that Mathilde has a great summer wardrobe.

I would wear this too! She has set a high bar for royal summertime fashion. -M

June 23, 2015

I like this too but I think it’s more fall than summer. All of these dresses have the shape that works best for my body so I want them all.

Yes, this dress with tights and booties? To die for. -M

June 18, 2015

This hat screams “BEACH” it does not scream “COMMEMORATE THE BATTLE OF WATERLOO.” The dress is lovely but is that a seam down the center of the skirt? It annoys me that I can see it so clearly.

Yes, the seam is totally weird. I don’t care because the color is so great. I don’t even mind the hat. -M

June 12, 2015

She is totally using magic to keep that hat on her head. ALSO I hate taupe.

This is such a sad color. -M

June 03, 2015

This is very pretty and I wish she had gone gold for the bag and shoes instead of coral everything.

I am not a huge fan of tiny purses with handles. Either clutch or handbag. -M

June 02, 2015

She looks like she is rethinking that hat –AS SHE SHOULD BE.

It looks like a mushroom. -M

May 20, 2015

This is two things, first it is gorgeous and secondly it’s a preview of MAXIMA QUEEN OF MY HEART!

!!!!!!! Shiny sheath dress FTWWWW!!!! -M

Queen Máxima of the Netherlands

July 10, 2015

I really want Maxima to wear that hat Mathilde wore to the Waterloo thing here on the beach. I think we can all agree this family it totes cute (I just want to prepare you for lots of children. Royal children were very busy this summer.). I’m less sure about the outfit it seems very heavy for the beach.

Those pants/shorts are matronly. -M

July 07, 2015

Max is wearing a paper bag hat (if you click the link you can see her wreath earrings too) but unfortunately this is the best photo Getty had.

The fact that Max loves color makes me smile. -M

June 22, 2015

I fucking love this. Every time Cathy Cambridge wears white and black I WISH she was also wearing green or red or blue shoes.

Great use of scarf! -M

June 19, 2015

I don’t really love this dress but I do LOVE that she paired burgundy with tomato red. I also really love these shoes.

The photo angle is so unfortunate. I might like that hat! -M

June 18, 2015

This is a little tight in the bust/waist area but as you can see by her face, Max don’t give a fuck –like Janice in accounting.

By her face in the second picture, I would guess she likes this dress as much as I do. Boring. -M

June 13, 2015

I want her clutch and those gold ballet flats, STAT.

She looks like a LOFT model. I know I have said this about her before, and it’s 100% true. -M

June 12, 2015

Another dress I would LOVE to put in my closet (I also need to retire LOVE-all-in-caps full-stop). Her earrings are also lovely. The hat looks like she bobby pinned fabric to her head.

I wish the colors were different, maybe shades of mustard. -M

June 08, 2015

This is so seventies chic –WORSHIP IT!

I swear, Max is more fashionable than 95% of all fashun bloggers. -M

June 01, 2015

Dear Katie-Mid, I would REALLY love it if you bought a t-strap pump. Look how classy it is. Look how NOT BORING it is without being flashy.

I could not find a photo of Max and Michelle Obama. Did they NOT meet? Why did the White House NOT make that happen? Why is she wearing a hat and leather gloves in DC in June –this place is a swamp? Why did I not go stalk her when they were in town? Why are the walls so bare in the Oval Office? Who is in charge of trimming those plants as they are too tall?

I would really like her and Michelle to be friends. They could go shopping and talk about their beautiful children and dogs. -M

May 29, 2015


Is that lady holding ten craft projects? I’m puzzled. -M

May 27, 2015

UMMMM…I have so many feelings and questions. That hat is droopy and sad. That lace jacket is weird. I don’t think you clutch matches the pink in your dress. Great lipstick. WOMAN WHY ARE YOU WEARING LEATHER GLOVES IN MAY?

I like the dress a lot but everything has has GOT TO GO. -M

May 27, 2015

I wish Getty had a better photo of that dress –it’s fringey!

Gorgeous. Don’t love the hair. -M

May 22, 2015

First photo super happy to be here at this education center. Second photo would also be the face I would make if I was wearing head to toe beige and had burlap pinned to my head.

TOO MUCH BEIGE. I am not crafty but I could definitely make these hats with some loose-woven linen and glue. -M

May 20, 2015

That hat is FANTASTIC, BRILLIANT, STUPENDOUS! I really like that hat. I also like the earrings, hair, and dress.

This is the kind of hat I like. It doesn’t look like a bucket and it has feathers of multiple colors. -M

Queen Letizia of Spain

August 08, 2015

This is our first of many yachting photos. Apparently yachting is very important to rich people in the summer. They are also a very cute family.

Great platforms! I don’t think I could wear them on a boat, I would totally fall. -M

August 05, 2015

Formal pants and cute shoes –the name of my Go-Go’s cover band.

This looks too glam to go with her husband’s blue suit. -M

August 03, 2015

This family is SO CUTE I’m just ignoring the fact that Letizia is wearing army colored silk sweatpants.

I am not ignoring that, I will call her out on it, and AT THE SAME TIME, condemn the idea of “athleisure wear.” -M

July 23, 2015

I still love this hair length on her –it’s SASSY. It’s also so sunny in Spain,  I would like to go to there.

I would not mind going back to July, with its long days and weather warm enough not to require three pairs of socks for sleeping. I bet Letitia does not wear socks to bed. -M

July 17, 2015

I wish more of these dames would wear button up blouses with pretty skirts. I also wish they wore more sandals. Sandals can be classy.

Very business casual. -M

July 16, 2015

This is kind of fun?

Would be way better in a color. -M

July 14, 2015

This is fantastic. The color combination is great and it screams “SUMMER!” I also enjoy her fan.

I don’t know, Katie, those look like culottes to me. -M

July 13, 2015

Another white outfit with gold shoes. I like these gold sandals. I’m kind of meh for the suit but the lace blazer is very “summer” (I just realized every time I say summer in my head I sing it like Josh Gad in Frozen –ENJOY!).

Pleasant. I just want to make fun of Kate’s bangs. This post is so long. -M

July 09, 2015

I love that Letiza is wearing a leather shift “IN SUMMER” (seriously if you haven”t done so watch the video above and then re-read this line, it will make you giggle). I have also supplied you with a close up of the snake skin sandals she has worn in many of these looks. I don’t lone them but at least they are not beige pumps.

It’s also kind of baggy. I generally approve because she has a definite look, I just wish her look wasn’t so beige. -M

July 07, 2015

This dress is total meh but I love this tiara its lovely.

Way too matronly for Tizzy (does she have a nickname? I submit Tizzy). -M

June 30, 2015

Letizia looks great in jewel tones. She is also a big fan of red.

REALLY great skirt. -M

June 30, 2015

Why is she wearing a coat in Mexico City in June? I love her commitment to wearing white, black, and red but that suit is boring and AGAIN I do not understand that coat.

Maybe it’s really cold in there AND they told her to dress like a presidential candidate. -M

June 29, 2015

I’m okay with this. I do like the hair curled though.

I would prefer to talk about the FLOM’s wide leg trousers with the mid-thigh pleats. -M

June 26, 2015

  1. I want that clutch.
  2. She is really into cuffed pants which always remind me of sweat pants.
  3. She is business up top and a party down below.

I hate this. These pants are super popular right now with college students, the cheap polyester ones sold at Target, but they are wrong like pajamas. A blazer does not make them fancy. -M

June 23, 2015

After those pants this is a snooze.

I love it! It looks like seashells. I would definitely wear this one. -M

June 19, 2015

Very pretty and also very snoozy.

She is SO COMMITTED to beige, isn’t she? -M

June 16, 2015

LUCITE SHOES! Now those scream PARTY! The suit is okay too.

Those shoes look so uncomfortable. -M

June 12, 2015

MORE WHITE AND GOLD! So much white and gold.

I’m ok with this, also she looks like Olivia Palermo here, who I like way more than Katie. -M

June 09, 2015

I have nothing to say about this.

At least it’s not beige! B-. -M

June 06, 2015

I love this for summer in Spain.

MOAR PLEATS, royals! -M

June 02, 2015

I’m kind of done with lace dresses like this BUT I do appreciate that it’s not black.

And I like the neckline. She gets a pass on the no-lace rule. -M

June 02, 2015

I want this skirt. Again she is really showing how classy and fun a blouse/skirt combo can be.

Wow, this looks like a painting! -M

Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden

August 22, 2015

Why yes CPV did go on a climate pilgrimage with M-M. They also look like they had a blast. Let’s talk about how cute CPV’s dress is with the wide collar and cap sleeves. I know want spring and summer to come back.

I would wear this every day. -M

August 22, 2015

Out of all the hats (so so many hats) this is the one I would like to own. I also want this top so that I can spill food on it and then hide in my office all day so no one finds out what a slob I am –that took a turn.

You would definitely look cute in this hat! I like this casual look on her a lot. -M

August 21, 2015

Everyone looks great in this photo. ALSO another blouse/skirt pairing.

So classy! I hope she has saved this to wear during the holidays with tights, booties and a sweater. -M

July 14, 2015

This post is really long so I have made it even longer by including photos of folks on their b-days in traditional dress.

I want to wear this on my next birthday. -M

July 14, 2015

I also am including photos of them in cute beaded necklaces given to them by their adorable daughters. Also I would totally wear this.

I might love this even more than the black and white one? Oh Vicki, you are my favorite. -M

June 09, 2015

This is a very summary gown. I think I also like her earrings.

I could not wear this but I want an a-line Zooey Deschanel dress in this fabric. -M

June 05, 2015

This is what Victoria wears going yachting. I now realize I should have put all of the yacht photos together so we could compare everyone’s yachting gear. Currently this looks the most normal/comfy.

Yacht-related hindsight is 20/20, Katie. -M

June 05, 2015

This looks fun AND sassy. I am also digging your gold buckled shoes CPV!

The color is extremely lovely. -M

June 04, 2015

Earrings are super fun. I also really love dainty lavender day dresses.

I would also add this to my closet. I wish she was wearing a bit more color on her lips. -M

June 04, 2015

I want this fabric on everything, clothes, drapes, throw pillows, duvet covers, etc. I also really enjoy her blue shoes.

So modern!!! -M

May 17, 2015

CPV is also magically keeping her hat on head. This is kind of a let down after that gorgeously patterned dress and fun blue shoes.

This appears to be a more conservative event, so I’m ok with the drabbish-colored dress. -M

Crown Princess Mary of Denmark

August 07, 2015

Mary is very pretty. Mary ALSO loves her Valentino strappy studded pumps. I feel like this is nice but I do not love.

Rockstuds! The ones all the fashun bloggers have. I am really into this look minus the shoes. -M

August 01, 2015

Some of these pictures just make me want to leave my office and head to an airport. However, I do not have a passport and it’s NOVEMBER.

That bag, I NEED IT. -M

July 25, 2015

That skirt is too long. Your children are very cute. Those dogs are also entertaining.

She is having a Chico’s kind of day. -M

July 24, 2015

I want that shirt.

Is that her husband in the orange Vans? I love those. -M

June 06, 2015

This next series of photos are of Princess Isabella’s first day of official engagements. She and her mother are doing outdoorsy things on the Island of Samso. I appreciate that they changed their clothes but it all still looks the same.

Is she friends with Kate? They have similar taste in jeans and shoes. -M

June 05, 2015

I like the earrings, dress, and coat. I wish the birds nest was orangey gold not blue grey. I also want to note that she is wearing a t-strap beige pump which though not noteworthy is still less snoozey than just a plain beige pump.

I think I would like this more if it was less shiny. -M

June 04, 2015

The dress is pretty and floaty. The bouquet of flowers are also pretty. I just wish they matched better (I know this is knit-picky but scroll back up and look at all the other bouquets and how well they go with the outfits).

Cut four inches off this and put it in my closet. -M

May 21, 2015

Lady you own cuter shoes than these!

I am sorry… I fell asleep. -M

May 20, 2015

I want to like this cause it’s different but it looks like a negligee married a caftan (actually that sounds awesome, this should be better).

The pattern is so fugly. If it was vintage-y, it would be more acceptable. -M

May 20, 2015

Her shoes ARE cuter here, they are snakeskin.

She looks sad. Maybe Tizzy can lend her a skirt. -M

May 19, 2015

I think I want that blazer?

It’s like built-in jewelry! -M

Crown Princess Mette-Marit of Norway

August 22, 2015

This dress is lovely and delicate which is kind of how I see M-M.

So freaking beautiful. One of the best here! -M

August 22, 2015

Melissa and I always love these two because we think we would be friends with them and this trip did NOTHING to dissuade that. I also think those Nike’s are cute and I STILL want that hat.

Let’s all get some cute Nike’s and go hiking! -M

August 01, 2015

They attended Pierre Casiraghi and Beatrice Borromeo’s nuptials in Monaco. This dress is weird and twee and I love it. I also love these two, they are always so cute.

I love the black touches, like the headband. -M

July 24, 2015


Why is he in a boring-ass suit? -M

July 24, 2015

I think I will commission my sister-in-law to crochet me a poncho cowl in grey.

I will also take one, kthanks. -M

May 17, 2015

NOW THE WHOLE FAMILY! Those kids are so over ceremonial traditional garb.

Whew, much better. I want that man’s blazer. -M

May 06, 2015

Very dainty.

I have created a show for her called, That’s So Norwegian! -M

Princess Charlene of Monaco

August 28, 2015

Charlene used to look like she wanted to escape but then she had twins and now smiles. These babies are precious. They are also in ceremonial garb. I like Charlene’s shoes.

Amazing shoes. He really married up, huh? -M

July 25, 2015

I am also completely down with her wacky style. Compared to all these other ladies it’s kind of out there. Take for instance this one armed, caped, jumpsuit in red. It looks great from every angle except the back.

Yeah her butt looks totally strange. I might like this? -M

July 12, 2015


The proportions of this are strange. -M

July 11, 2015

That back is kind of sexy. Nobody is going to tell Charlene to put weights in her skirts.

I am so envious of her shoulders. -M

June 17, 2015

I am unsure how I feel about this dress. I kind of like the military-ness of the top and I enjoy sleeves but the skirt seems too big.

Needs tailoring. Badly. -M

June 13, 2015

Cute shoes and fun earrings.


May 24, 2015

This dress is very wack-ado. It has a hi-lo hem, pleats, illusion netting, and a deep v. ALSO LAUGHING.

I don’t care for how this fits. -M

May 10, 2015

This is a very classy outfit to wear to your childrens christening. How is that hat not falling off her head.

I love the cute little lace gloves. -M

Princess Caroline of Monaco

July 11, 2015

Photos of Caroline always remind me of French films. Her life is so French. I really like her shoes here. I also really love Tatiana Casiraghi’s dress (second photo, right).

I like both of these a whole lot. Nice lipstick, Tatiana! -M

July 10, 2015

Monegasque royals always seem like they are having a weirder more fabulous life than the other royal houses. They have illegitimate children, affairs, hang out with Karl Lagerfeld. Caroline’s dress is very interesting. I like the length and I hate to say it but she is kind of pulling off a sack.

No, but really, THOSE PANTS. -M

June 26, 2015

She also looks nice in navy.

Who cares, gimme that red and yellow dress. I even like that woman’s jeans and black tee shirt. Classic. -M

June 25, 2015

And in a caftan!


June 23, 2015

See look how wistful and French this photo is. I want that scarf.

She’s making me feel like a lumpy uncool American. Sigh. -M

May 30, 2015

She is also always looking at art. I kind of love this geometric origami dress.

This is super cool. -M

Caroline’s suit isn’t that great (love the color) but what I really love is the hat. I also love how much fun she is having playing with that baby.

Unflattering. -M

Princess Beatrice of York

June 30, 2015

When I originally pulled this photo I didn’t really like this dress but after going through SO MUCH BUSINESS CASUAL I think this is youthful and refreshing.

I adore this. -M

June 23, 2015

The leather jacket and loafers make this so eighties –in a good way.

I like how the dress is peeking out past the jacket sleeves. -M

June 19, 2015

FUN HAT! I’m on the fence about this look. I like all of the pieces but I think there might be just too much.

The fabric of the top is horrrrrrrrible. -M


The York girls brought mom to Ascot and she got to hang out in the box! Fergie is classy again. She and Beatrice needed some lippy.

Good lord, woman, get a tube of lipstick. -M

June 18, 2015

This just might be my favorite look in the whole post. It is sublime.

Gorgeous, AND she is wearing a hat I don’t hate. -M

June 16, 2015

If the last look was my favorite this look is the most fun. I’m not entirely sure if it all works but it’s very modern and yet also gives a slight hat-tip to the past with the long skirt and long sleeved blouse.

I’m shocked Vicky didn’t wear this first. -M

June 16, 2015

This is cute but it also looks wet.

Eh. The leather jacket would have been better. -M

June 10, 2015

I’ve decided that Bea should totally be friends with CPV. They bot love a big patterned skirt and blouse combo –NEWSFLASH so do I!


May 28, 2015

Those beige mary-janes with the chunky heel prove once again you can make a beige pump NOT boring. The rest of this is kind of meh.

The dress is giving her saddle bags. -M

Princess Eugenie of York

July 30, 2015

Somebody need to burn this jacket. It is a blah color and the sleeves are too long. Without the jacket she looks very cute.

I’m so annoyed with this jacket. -M

June 30, 2015

She looks really pretty in this bright pink.

I really like her eye makeup. -M

June 19, 2015

MORE BEIGE! And her shoes are super boring.


June 18, 2015

Eugenie you need to wear bright colors! This looks so pretty. I also really like the hat.

That jacket is so sad, though. -M

Princess Madeleine of Sweden

July 14, 2015

In honor of her sisters 38th birthday Princess Madeleine of Sweden wore her pjs and a parka to a concert. In her defense she had only given birth a month beforehand in which case she is looking FABULOUS.

I am so confused why she is wearing a down coat in July. -M

June 16, 2015

Look how sweet her babe is!

Princess Sofia of Sweden

August 26, 2015

We covered Sofia and Carl Philips wedding in June and here they are announcing their pregnancy –so many Swedish babies!

They are a disgustingly attractive couple. Barf. -M

July 14, 2015

I really like the embellishment on Sofia’s blouse.

I like the pale pink lippie. Is this post over yet? -M

June 01, 2015

I would like to know why this photo showed up for Sofia but NOT for CPV. Anywho, Victoria looks super foxy in green sparkles. Sofia needs to hire someone to steam her clothes.

Vicky totally looks the best but Silvia is second. What a great color and print! -M

May 17, 2015

There is nothing particularly great about this picture EXCEPT FOR THE OARS! They look so happy to get them.

Do the oars come with a boat? That’s the only reason I would be smiling. -M

Catherine Duchess of Cambridge

July 26, 2015

All this yacht talk just makes me want to listen to the band YACHT.

Anywho here is Bill and Cathy Cambridge hanging with some yachts they of course wear A LOT of NAVY. Also Cathy brought out her official yacht blazer.

Her hair is a nice color? Oh Kate you bore me. -M

July 08, 2015

I like the color of this dress but I don’t think I like the length at all.

Way too long and I wish the waist was in a different place. -M

June 14, 2015

These are only here for Prince George and his truck –you’re welcome.


Sophie Countess of Wessex

August 30, 2015

Who knew field hockey was so entertaining. Did all of the Windsors decide patterned dresses/skirts in navy should be worn this summer to all events.

This print makes me feel ill. -M

August 15, 2015

I think I like this hat, not sure why. It seems like it’s been a while since we saw a hat in this post.

Thank goodness for that. -M

August 08, 2015

NO, Sophie is NOT yachting she was however dispatched to the Festival Of British Eventing which I also wish I could attend.

I would look up this festival but I just want to finish this post. -M

July 10, 2015

That old man is totally telling her naughty jokes and I love it. She wore this dress to Ascot farther down in the post. That hat is a hat but I like that green color.

I cannot get excited about this. -M

June 30, 2015


It took me a few days to finish these comments so this might be my least favorite but I have no way of checking that. -M

June 18, 2015

I like a good sweater dress with 3/4 sleeves myself.

I wish this was a different color. -M

June 17, 2015

Sophie re-wears a lot of her clothes and really close together this is the dress she wore on August 15th. I liked that hat better than this hat. I also don’t really care for the dress.

The faux-wrap skirt is cute. -M

June 16, 2015

Here is the mock turtleneck sweater dress in it’s entirety. It was better with the old dude telling dirty jokes. That second photo is very pretty.

Did not get better. -M

June 05, 2015

Sophie take off your jacket I think I might like this dress. I also want to point out that this is a MUCH better hem then she usually wears.

Look, The Voice is on in one minute and I will just type junk, because who is getting this far? -M

June 04, 2015

Lovely color but DOWDY. She should model her style on Queen Mathilde.

UGH it’s several sizes too big. -M

June 04, 2015

She looks very pretty here.

It’s fine but not exceptional. -M

Zara Phillips

August 13, 2015


Kill me. -M

June 19, 2015

I like her navy shoes.

No, seriously, I want to finish this post so bad. -M

June 18, 2015

This is nice I guess.

I’m DVR-ing too many things at once so I can’t watch The Voice. -M

June 16, 2015

This hat is fun, the dress however is a little ill-fitting.

It’s just me and Gemma meowing loudly because she brought me an offering AKA one of her toys. -M

June 14, 2015



May 18, 2015

TRACTOR. I really could not put in the photo of Zara on a John Deere.

Is she on a movie set? -M

May 08, 2015

Mike Tindall looks really handsome in this suit.



Those pants are my everything. This is how people should dress when they play golf.

I used to have an ice bucket in this pattern, right from when Target started getting design-y. -M

Charlotte Casiraghi

July 11, 2015

Next to Bea’s white dress from Ascot this is my other favorite. I want those shoes SO BAD. That dress is also so flirty and cute.

I love this! I would look up if it was made of that African fabric made in Denmark but I want to go to bed to watch Adam Levine and Blake Shelton yell at each other. -M

July 10, 2015

I love the leather collar.

Super cute. -M

June 27, 2015

This is also young and flirty.

Should be a smidgen longer. -M

Pierre Casiraghi and Beatrice Borromeo

August 4, 2015

So Getty only had the photos of this wedding for sale BUT thankfully Armani put them on their Instagram. Her second gown might just be my favorite royal wedding dress ever it is so classic and lovely.

For the wedding reception, Beatrice Borromeo wore another specially-made silk tulle #GiorgioArmani Privé gown. A photo posted by Armani Official (@armani) on

July 11, 2015

These two are so chic it’s insane. And with that we bid you au revoir!

Until the next time, when we recap the fall clothes of these rich assholes. Jk some of them might be nice. Whatever. -M
