It may be her cousin’s wife who gets all the attention, but Princess Beatrice is morphing into quite the trendsetter.
Despite having been victim to a handful of fashion faux-pas in recent years; the 23-year-old has finally grasped the gist of ‘less is more’.
The redhead stepped out with boyfriend Dave Clark wearing a very simple all-black ensemble; but looked incredibly radiant and chic as a result.

Beatrice opted for a feminine winter coat buttoned to the neck; detailed with a bow at the waist and frills along the torso.
She teamed the outfit with suede ankle boots, a large patent bag and unstyled but perfectly brushed, to within an inch of her life, long hair.
The Goldsmiths graduate has been dating the 29-year-old for five years.

Clark, who works for Richard Branson at Virgin Galactic, opted for a smart casual look with blue jeans and a grey sweater, smartening up the outfit with suit shoes, a shirt and an overcoat to keep out the chill.
While he busies himself working for Branson, Bea is said to be organising a series of internships following her History and History Of Ideas degree.
A Buckingham Palace spokesperson said: ‘She hopes to broaden her knowledge and experience to complement her position as a member of the royal family. She will look to progress this work into other relevant areas.’
The couple were recently spotted in the studio audience during the latest series of Strictly Come Dancing, supporting friend Holly Valance.
At the time, the former Neighbours actress said: ‘My friend Princess B came along on Saturday. She’s on strict instructions to vote for me. That’s the only time I can boss a princess around.’
