Juicy front row tales are what make runway shows so memorable (well, you know, after the clothes), and a princess throwdown is pretty much as good as it gets.
At yesterday’s Elie Saab show, Thai Princess Sirivannavari Nariratana wanted to meet British Princess Beatrice of York. Princesses should know each other, okay? Anyway, according to the Daily Telegraph, one of Bea’s security guards was all, “She don’t want to meet no princesses. She’s sitting here, not getting up.” OUCH. And then Sirivannavari was all, “Is that the sort of princess you’ve got?” To which: you go, girl!
This has us totally crushing on the Thai royal. Apparently Sirivannavari is a fashion student, and she has actually shown a collection in Paris. She has also “appeared in daring outfits including a figure-hugging black dress slashed to her upper thigh matched with black lipstick”. She was a little more conservative yesterday in a blue and white printed dress with some sort of dramatic cape situation (and anklets!). Conversely, Beatrice wore a red Saab frock.
Of course, we have to ask…
this is some kind of spaceship or something.
