The Countess on Vanity Fair’s 2015 International Best-Dressed List & other updates.

Just a tiny bit post, while we are all enjoying summer weather, I think it’s one of the hottest summer’s here in Poland. Anyway, back to Sophie or should I say, The Countess of Wessex. I was really happy to see our lady on The Vanity Fair’s 2015 International Best-Dressed List. A spokesman said that the the winners were not ranked but merely listed one after the other. So the places keep changing.

Most Notable Ensemble of 2015 for HRH The Countess of Wessex accoriding to Vanity Fair: A striped silk-satin Emilia Wickstead dress and a custom Jane Taylor hat, worn to the Royal Ascot.

Other ladies who made it to the list: Taylor Swift – I do like her style – mostly casual daily style, she is inspired by Audrey Hepburn and you can never go wrong with such inspiration, never! Plus she is a cat person, like myself. And her cats are named after famous TV series characters Doctor Meredith Grey & Detective Olivia Benson, how cool is that! And they travel in style as well 🙂

Back to the list: Francesca Amfitheatrof, Samantha Cameron, Charlotte Casiraghi, Amal Clooney, Misty Copeland, Mellody Hobson, Rihanna & H.M. Queen Letizia of Spain. As for The Duchess of Cambridge, she is in the Vanity Fair’s Hall of Fame and can’t be included on the list anymore. This year’s winner of The Hall of Fame is H.H. Sheikha Mozah bint Nasser al-Missned of Qatar.

We will see The Earl & Countess of Wessex on the 15th August, as they will join The Queen and other members of The Royal Family in a service to mark the 70th anniversary of Victory over Japan Day (VJ Day) at St Martin-in-the-Fields Church, Trafalgar Square. The Countess will fully resume her royal duties (after the summer break) on the 30th August. Autumn looks pretty busy. I have updated the royal diary.

    Well deserved spot for Sophie! Let's hope next year it's the Hall of Fame! 😀 I have to say I preferred her Alice Lee Ascot ensemble this year but each to their own I suppose. 😀

    Look forward to seeing the royal family again at the VJ service and I wonder if Sophie will being Lady Louise to the hockey on 30th August as their kids don't go back to school until early September. It would be nice to see Louise go with her mum as she watched some hockey matches at the Commonwealth Games last year. We shall see…

    Yes, well done Sophie in the Vanity Fair list, however, I feel she should have been placed 'first', and far higher up than Sam Cam! Sophie is always immaculately dressed (that goes for her hair too these days, love it!). Thank you Anna, we've missed your reports during the Summer break!


  3. Francis, like I wrote. They are not ranked. Places keep changing, they are listed randomly according to the spokesman for VF. I've missed my blog as well but let's enjoy summer while it lasts 🙂 I'll be back with new post in a week!


  4. do you know if this is her first year on the list?

    it's true her style has been getting better and better over the last few years, and this last year she has done several official events representing the queen which highlights her more than before.
