Hey, so it's a bit of a slow news day today--eh, it happens right? Everyone must be in a post-Fashion Week daze, which makes sense. Yet one thing we came across that was kinda interesting is this picture of Princess Kate Middleton and Queen Elizabeth II. It got us to thinking....if this were a fashion duel of royal proportions, who would win? Yes, Kate--with her fair skin, dark hair and stick-thin frame--looks great in her peplumed jacket and above-the-knee skirt (appropriate but flirty!), and for that we give her major props. But the Queen, who is 85, mind you, is not about to let this newcomer upstage her. Oh no. She decided on a sensible neon pink coat with matching hat. Then she slaps a fab brooch on it, slips on some sensible black gloves, pearls, and buckled flats (similar to the ones Marc Jacobs showed for fall 2012....kinda) before grabbing her simple-chic bag and off she goes. So yes, while both these gals are looking foxy, we're gonna give the point to the reigning monarch.
