Beatrice Borromeo has been named the "Most Stylish Royal" by society bible Tatler. The 36-year-old has taken the crown as the most stylish European royal, edging out style icons Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle.
The publication particularly noted the unique choice of her wedding outfit in 2015. At her wedding to Pierre Casiraghi, the Italian aristocrat donned four different haute couture gowns.
While Valentino designed two dresses for her civil service in Monaco, Armani Prive created two more gowns for her religious service in Lake Maggiore. Tatler dubbed it as proof of Beatrice Borromeo’s “sartorial savoir-faire.”
The magazine also mentioned that nearly six years after her wedding, the Italian native continues to maintain her elegant fashion sense:
“With a penchant for Valentino, Armani Prive and Chanel, it’s no surprise that the mother-of-two cuts an elegant figure everywhere she goes – whether it’s a red carpet, a royal appearance or simply yacht-hopping.”
In 2015, Vogue dubbed Borromeo’s wedding dresses as "a love letter to the greats of Italian fashion." Luxury fashion stylist, Miranda Holder, told Yahoo! News that the Monaco royal’s fashion sense stems from her “confidence”:
"She embraces womanhood, embodying beauty and grace - her fabulous sense of style is as much about her inner confidence as it is the clothes she wears."
The stylist also mentioned that Beatrice Borromeo’s fashion statement is almost unmatched:
"Beatrice artfully combines old-school sophisticated Hollywood glamour with an effortless 'undone edge’, there is almost a Kate Moss-inspired rock chick aesthetic - a look which can be tricky to pull off."
The former model recently appeared at the Red Cross Summer Concert alongside the Royal Family of Monaco, wearing a stunning black gown.
She has consistently stood out at the annual Rose Ball for The Princess Grace Foundation, among other royal events.
Beatrice Borromeo has previously stunned audiences at prominent events like Paris Fashion Week, Milan Fashion Week, and the Cannes Film Festival.
