Car Crash Couture: The Princesses Look To The Lion King

Now that the royal dust has settled, and Team Buckingham Palace take a moment to tuck into their official reception vol-au-vents, we have time to properly reflect on the unnerving, eye-frazzling spectacle that were Princesses Eugenie and Beatrice's royal wedding outfits.

Don't get us wrong, we're not advocating that everyone bar Kate should have been bland and boring for the royal wedding - the Queen, Victoria Beckham and Tara Palmer Tomkinson get full marks for their efforts. But if, like Eugenie and Beatrice, you've got stylists and (relatively) unlimited funds at your disposal, there's really no excuse for getting your outfit wrong.

So we were shocked to see what the princesses decided to sport for the big day. Eugenie wore Vivienne Westwood, while Beatrice opted for Valentino, and both wore hats by Philip Treacy. On paper it should have been great, but we can't help but be reminded of stage productions of The Lion King. And not in a good way.
