The Princess of York has made questionable fashion choices over the years

Princess Beatrice has had a remarkable style transformation, according to a fashion commentator.

In 2011, Prince Andrew's eldest daughter attended Kate and William's wedding wearing a Philip Treacy hat, which was compared to everything from a pretzel, a toilet seat, and a door knocker at the time.

But Princess Beatrice has gradually perfected her style and is now widely praised for her elegant outfits.

She is regularly credited as one of the best-dressed royal ladies, which is due in large to her stylist Olivia Buckingham.

Buckingham also dresses celebrities like Poppy Delevingne and Nicky Hilton.

She has introduced Beatrice to her now-regular designers, including The Vampire’s Wife and Self Portrait.

The stylist said: "I like to push my clients’ boundaries but also stick to their authentic codes.

"I don’t want it to be one-sided, what I enjoy is giving them creative freedom, then we meet in the middle and come up with a magical look."

Buckingham explained how she began working with the Princess of York.

"The whole process is collaborative when it comes down to choosing the final look," she told The Mail.

"We discuss the event and what type of style would work even down to the finer details like jewellery and shoes.

"I know that we both believe that if a woman can feel empowered and confident by clothes then that’s what they should be used for."

One of Beatrice's most memorable fashion moments was on her wedding day in 2020.

The princess wore a vintage dress designed by Norman Hartnell, which was previously worn by her grandmother Queen Elizabeth.

At the recent Jordanian royal wedding, Princess Beatrice looked phenomenal in a floor-length Reem Acra dress.

She also no longer wears the unusual colours and quirky headpieces that she used to wear.
