  6. Yes, Empress Masako looks wonderful!
    I like how the emperor's tie compliments the pale blue of her kimono.
    Can't wait for the official enthronement ceremonies in October. Sure to be lots of great pics there too.

  8. Wow. Empress Masako looks fantastic in this traditional outfit. Her hair is beautifully styled as well.

  9. Empress Masako outshines the other ladies of the imperial family, even the young Akishino princesses with their unbecoming lopsided bangs.

  11. I think Crown Princess Kiko and all of the young princesses are so beautiful!! It is very nice to see the pretty kimonos. They wear their kimono's that fit their age. The only one whose kimono doesn't fit their age is Masako! Masako doesn't wear the kimono properly. Especially the color and patterns doesn't fit her age.

    1. What's wrong with this color and pattern?You just want to say Empress Masako badly.

    2. Both too bright. Should be darker colors. Kimono's bottom is supposed to be straight down. Obiage(sash hold the Obi) should hide under the obi(Big sash). I wouldn't say anything bad to Masako If she just wore her kimono correctly.

    3. There is no rule that Empress Masako must wear a dark colored kimono just because she is in her 50s.In your theory, Princess Kiko in her 50s must wear a dark color,but she is also wearing a brightly colored kimono.
      About Kimono's bottom,you're talking about the hem or talking about ohashori? If it's a kimono's hem, it doesn't always have to be straight.Sometimes it may be a little slanted.Depending on the time and occasion, the hem of the kimono is worn longer, shorter, straight, or slanted.
      Next,obiage is not hidden under the obi, but rather a little show.When an unmarried woman wears a long-sleeved kimono, the obi is placed on top of the obi, like Princess Mako and Princess Kako.
      So,Empress Masako wears kimono correctly.
      You should not say that Empress Masako is not following the rules of kimono.You should say you don't like Empress Masako's kimono.
