World Cup Fever Hits the Prepatorium

Hello-Hello, welcome to a wacky and somewhat frenzied Friday!  Does everyone have World Cup Fever?

It seems to be everywhere today, from Trafalgar Square…

There are fashion statements.


With accessories and cosmetics that are anything but run of the mill.

The style statements are not limited to the ladies.

Nor does one’s age impact choices for fashionable headwear.

Here is a woman who has pulled it all together: chapeaux, makeup and accessories.

We have celebrities, like Gossip Girl star Penn Badgley at Havaianas launch party for their FIFA Team Flip-flops.

And we have royalty. Below, Prince Albert of Monaco, and South African Olympic swimmer Charlene Wittstock, arrive before today’s match between South Africa and Mexico.

The opening concert celebration featured Shakira and Alicia Keys.

As well as John Legend and the Black Eyed Peas.

This flag conveys the overall message pretty well.

As does this big screen at the concert.

But this is what we would really like guarding the grounds here at the Palace.

We just need to put him in a different uniform.

Happy weekend!
