Weekly Royal Fashion Awards: November 25-December 2

It's December now (how did that happen? Last time I checked it was March) and tartan is in the air, apparently. Let the festivities begin...

Best in Not That Different Hair? Maybe? I Don't Know?
The Duchess of Cambridge
Opening The Treasures Gallery at the Natural History Museum; visiting Cambridge; visiting her old school
It's time for a confession: I don't get the fuss over her new hairdo...it looks kinda the same to me? Well, adding some layers does not a "new 'do" make, I think, despite what the headlines say. Then again, I require an updo (tiara optional but preferred) before I pay much of any attention to anyone's hair. I'd rather talk about hockey in heels or sweet little bows on coats or the perils of peace signs on clothing, really.

Best in Shoes
Princess Letizia
At the opening of the Volunteering National Congress; attending Premios Magisterio 2012 at Caixa Forum
I am liking that number with the red top way more than I should, really...and it has to do with two little straps on the feets. It's like a nude shoe with a bite. Lurve.

Best in Isabella
Princess Isabella
So, Queen Margrethe has designed the sets and costumes for a production of The Nutcracker, because she's awesome like that, and the family went to see her show. And Isabella wore little boots, because she's awesome like that.

Best in Blergh
Princess Mathilde
Visiting the ENSAV Arts Academy; attending the Department of Defense's family information day
No real color, not even a spot of orange in sight!

Best in More Tartan
Princess Máxima
At the Prince Bernhard Culture Prize ceremony; at Action Plan apprenticeships; opening the International Supply Management Congress
Hey, maybe Máx and Kate can go on a little stroll at Balmoral together sometime and talk about tiaras. (As you do.) On a sidenote, we've now entered the time of year when Máxima insists on wearing lighter color shoes with dark tights, and makes me die a little on the inside.

Best in Adorable
Crown Princess Victoria (and Daniel)
Victoria and Daniel gave an audience to two kids with serious illnesses that wanted to meet them, though the MyBigDay Foundation. Just adorable.

And an Honorable Mention to...
Princess Beatrice
At the British Fashion Awards
Perhaps my favorite royal Erdem yet, just loverly.

Who did you like last week?
