    1. Ou Madame Tussaud. Je crois que c'est dans leur culture. Elles sont fades et ont l'air de s'emmerder a cent sous de l'heure

    3. Marie, a mon age, 83 ans, on peut me pardonner de dire s'emmerder au lieu de s'ennuier. Mais au moins leurs vies privees ont l'air d'etre exemplaires, contrairement a bien des princesses europeennes

  5. You never see the Japanese Imperial ladies' shoulders, but the lady at the end of the line is bucking the dress code!

    1. Yes, I'd sure like to know what that's about...maybe something got spilled on her cream-colored gown and the blue was an emergency replacement? (That could explain the rather grumpy facial expression.)

    2. The one smack in the middle, her gown has no sleeves, how shocking!!!

  6. Empress Michiko's gown is sooooo lovely. She has such a distinctive style of dressing, so graceful.

    Masako looks vibrant and beautiful.

  10. The ladies (bar the one in blue - which is just odd) all look like they are attending a debutante ball. The Empress looks lovely as does the Crown Princess.
