Princesses aren’t just a thing of movies and fairytales, they exist in real life. We know Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton all too well, but there are more princesses in the world to look at, especially for fashion tips.
Princess Sirivannavari Nariratana of Thailand
She is known as one of the most fashionable royals, so she deserves a mention. She majored in fashion design at the University of Bangkok and has modeled on the front cover of Vogue, so it’s no wonder she’s a fashion icon. She was invited by Pierre Balmain, the designer worn frequently by the Kardashians, to show her collection in 2007. She also frequents the front rows of Paris Fashion week and has been spotted watching shows like Lagerfeld, Dior, and Chanel.
Princess Charlene of Monaco
She wasn’t always a full-blown Princess – Charlene used to be an Olympic swimmer for South Africa. She competed in the 2000 Olympics. She met Prince Albert II of Monaco at a swim meet in his home country and it became a real-life fairytale. They married in 2011 and now have two children. Despite all the years in the spotlight, it’s almost impossible to find Princess Charlene in a bad outfit. She has been spotted wearing Louis Vuitton and Dior. Her children have inherited her eye for style too, sometimes outshining her on the red carpet.
Princess Eugenie of York
Princess Eugenie and her sister Princess Beatrice rose to infamy with their over-the-top headgear at Prince William and Princess Kate’s wedding. Their headwear received mixed reactions with some calling them ridiculous and others calling them avant-garde. It seems her signature is a good hat, with her Royal Ascot outfits earning her notoriety. At her own wedding, she looked gorgeous. Her off-the-shoulder gown had her glowing, and she wore the crown of every Princess’s dreams. She’s definitely one to watch in the fashion game.
Princess Keisha Omilana of Nigeria
Before becoming a Princess, Keisha was a woman of many talents. She received a degree in fashion and was a model for many years. She is instantly recognizable as the girl from the Pantene advertisements in African countries. She has also worked with Maybelline, Revlon, and CoverGirl. She has also been on television shows like Zoolander, SNL, and 30 Rock. She became royalty when she married Prince Kunle Omilana of the Yoruba Kingdom. She is now famed as a natural hair icon, and runs workshops called “A Crown of Curls”. She’s truly an African Queen and we love her!
Lady Amelia Windsor, U.K.
She’s mostly known as the third cousin of Prince William and Prince Harry, but her style is certainly regal. She’s the hip, young face of the royal family – she models, and she has an impressive Instagram following. She’s a model for Storm, the same agency as Kate Moss and Cara Delevigne. “I don’t really have a specific style, it changes every day depending on who I am with, or the place I am near,” she once told an interviewer about her style. She mostly rocks a chunky shoe, which is a nice switch from the stiletto heels usually seen on Kate and Meghan.
Princesses are known for their beauty and grace, so it’s lovely to be able to look at the styles of real-life Cinderellas, Rapunzels, and Belles. We can all learn some things from these royals with a keen eye for fashion.
