You know, I’ve been thinking… there are many tiaras out there that so many royal watchers go gaga over, yet no one ever dares to say that some tiaras are downright fugly.
So, with that being said, I thought I would post the world’s ugliest tiaras. Of course, it’s all subjective, but whatever, again, it’s a slow news day.
Now, this is a new tiara on the royal and princely scene and I have to be blunt here: It’s fugly. No, really it is. It looks cheap like a prom tiara from Charlotte Russe or Forever 21. I’m going to take a wild guess here, but clearly Prince Gustav of Sayn-Wittgenstein-Berleburg (Carina’s permanent boyfriend) was on a budget when he purchased this hot mess of a tiara. Clearly, the diamonds cannot be real. Up close they look like Cubic Zirconiums.
By the way, in case you didn’t know, Miss Axelsson is not exactly a princess. However, she does live in a beautiful and massive castle in Germany with her goofy boyfriend, and his father isn’t — allegedly — all that fond of her. But, hey, she allegedly redecorated her boyfriend’s castle and allegedly added a capitalistic coffeehouse on site which brings in money so…
HRH Princess Mabel of the Netherlands
Ah, Mabel. Mabel, Mabel, Mabel. Your sense of style is a legendary hot mess and your bridal tiara is one too. The tiara is too boring and cheap looking (though it probably cost a pretty Dutch penny.) The tiara looks like knives sticking out of her head.
HM Queen Margrethe of Denmark
Princess Astrid of Norway
No. Just no.
Grand Duchess Maria Teresa of Luxembourg
I can honestly say that it pains me to put Grand Duchess Maria Teresa of Luxembourg on this list. Why? Because I believe she is an awesome woman; however, this tiara is just a one big… No. It’s too large. Too ghastly. Sorry.
Princess Anna of Bavaria
Honestly, I am on the fence about this tiara. It’s okay, but not brilliant.
HRH I Forget Her Name of Savoy
This tiara is simply too BIG. Too ostentatious. Blech!
A kind note to HRH I Forget Your Name of Savoy… if your tiara is ten times bigger than your head… trash it, honey. You look like a contestant on RuPaul’s Drag Race in a cheaply made Aluminum tiara.
The Hesse Star Tiara
You know, I don’t hate this tiara… I just think it’s too… large. Kind of tacky like a Miss Universe faux-tiara.
Princess Astrid of Norway: Part Deux
Poor Princess Astrid of Norway. She is in the unfortunate position whereupon she is given all the crappy tiaras and this weird winged thing sticking out of her head isn’t exactly flattering on her. It looks like evil hell horns.
Yeah, it’s fugly.
HRH Crown Princess Mary Grey Weird Thingy Tiara
HRH Crown Princess Mette-Marit and the Amethyst Tiara
Sorry, but this Amethyst tiara looks cheap to me. It looks like a David’s Bridal tiara or a cheap-o plastic tiara purchased from the 99 Cent store in Reseda, CA.
HRH Princess Madeleine of Sweden and the Aquamarine Tiara
You know I’m on the fence about this tiara. It’s simple yet boring. And, cheap looking at the same time. It’s not horrid, just… blah.
So there you have it. The Royal Correspondent’s First Annual Fuglist Tiaras 2011.
Happy Valentines Day.
