All Hail Duchess Fergie, the Unsung Royal Fashion Hero

Eighties fashion is back, and we're plundering the archives on a daily basis for original outfit inspiration. Fortunately for our keyboard-weary fingers, Princess Eugenie just saved us a whole heap of work. The royal recently joined Instagram and has dedicated a collection of her first posts to throwback shots of her mother, Sarah Ferguson, Duchess of York.

Fergie has long been seen as a bit of a rebel in regal circles, and during the peak years of her public exposure, she was cast into the fashion shadow of Princess Diana, but a glance into the history books will show that the former wife of Prince Andrew had some cracking looks a few decades back—so cracking, in fact, that we have a feeling we're copying them without even realizing (just see all of the polka-dot action for starters). See what we mean by scrolling down.
