Tatler magazine calls Thai princess world’s most stylish royal

Written by Aashis pandey

Thai princess Sirivannavari Nariratana, 31, is making serious waves with haute couture elite, with the Daily Mail reporting she’s now gracing the September issue of Tatler.

Princess Sirivannavari, the daughter of King Vajiralongkorn, 66, is featured in the current September issue of Tatler magazine, where she is praised for having a dazzling list of accomplishments that would be befitting of a fairytale royal.

It is far from the first time the princess has graced the pages of a glossy magazine.

This year alone Sirivannavari has been on the cover of Vogue Thailand and Elle Thailand, and has been featured in Hong Kong Tatler.

Just last month she was spotted attending a number of the hottest show’s at Paris Fashion Week, demonstrating her elegant, feminine style at Christian Dior and Chanel, among others.

Her first taste on the international fashion stage came in 2004 when she showed a collection from her eponymous label, Sirivannavari, as a guest designer at Milan Fashion Week.

In September 2007 French fashion powerhouse Pierre Balmain invited the royal, then a 20-year-old fashion undergraduate, to present her collection at Paris Fashion Week.

Two years later Princess Sirivannavari received a bachelor’s degree from Bangkok’s esteemed Chulalongkorn University, graduating with a major in fashion design.

In 2010 the princess left her beloved home to spend the year studying in Paris.

She has also presented collections in Milan and studied in Rome, although her focus remains on her business in Thailand.

Speaking to Tatler, Princess Sirivannavari described her grandmother HM Queen Sikrit as a ‘true icon’ of fashion. Her father, the country’s beloved head of state, is also known for his sartorial flair.

The princess recently received a government award for contemporary artists, becoming the first royal to be honoured.

Sirivannavari, an honorary member of the Thai national badminton team, also continues to make time for her other passion: horse riding.

The royal has competed for her country in dressage, including an appearance at the 2013 South East Asian Games.

She told the magazine: ‘I train six days a week, I’ll ride three horses for an hour each. I’ve had injuries.

‘I’ve broken my leg, I have a screw in my left foot, but I have never given up. I put all my efforts into achieving my goals.’
