Grayson Perry, Britain’s self-styled “pre-eminent transvestite”, has just received the award of a CBE from Prince Charles at Buckingham Palace. He – Grayson Perry, not the Prince – wore a midnight blue dress and matching fitted jacket with a wide-brimmed black hat trimmed with feathers for the investiture. Perry described the outfit as his “mother of the bride outfit”. A spokesman for the Palace is quoted as saying that his “attire was entirely appropriate”.
You can judge for yourself, for here is MSN video of Perry speaking afterwards.
In my view, Grayson Perry’s makeup, handbag and shoes all complement his dress well, however one thing would really perfect the look – Perry needs to acquire a matronly bust.
