  3. ... also, all the ladies seem to have the same lipstick or gloss. Are they bought by the imperial house as grouped purchase!? knowing their rules about no individual initiative.

    1. The ladies do look basically the same. Last night, I was looking at a picture of Masako holding baby Aiko. If Aiko hadn't been a baby in the picture to mark the age of the photo, it could have been taken a week ago. Her hat and coat haven't changed at all. From having no real value as a woman, to showing no individuality as a member of the Imperial Family, it must be very difficult for these women.

    2. I hope now with a new emperor and empress the imperial household agency can modernize a bit but wow what a family and archaic institution where you live in the 21st century but force to live like you in the 19th century. I hope I see Empress Masako in nice dresses like the one queen Maxima or queen Mathilde have been wearing

  6. Sono felicissima di vedere l'imperatrice Masako con questa tiara(delle Giapponesi la mia preferita). Altrettanto bello vedere la Principessa Kiko con la Japanese crown princess scroll tiara. Segno che il successore di Naruito sarà Akishino e suo figlio.

  7. This is the only monarchy that the grandmother, daughters (in-law) and granddaughters wear the same style of clothes. From age 20 to 80 the fashion, hair and makeup is the same and interchangeable. The lack of individuality is oppressive and for the sake of her mental, emotional and physical health, I hope being the Empress will allow Empress Masako a bit more freedom now.
