Sarah Ferguson Steals the Spotlight in a Short Black Skirt during Her Latest Appearance
The 59-year-old Duchess of York made a red carpet appearance in New York City on March 21 for the opening night of a Broadway show about “The Temptations,” stealing the show with her grace and her style.
Ferguson arrived at the Imperial Theatre in an emerald green shell top paired with a black peplum hem skirt. She added a black leather jacket to the ensemble and kept things casual by wearing suede trainers instead of heels.
The mother-of-two attended the premiere of “Ain’t Too Proud – The Life and Times of The Temptations” in the best of spirits, generously smiling to the cameras as the press reacted to her royal presence.
Close to turn 60 years old, the Duchess continues to defy her age with her looks and impeccable style. She exudes a confidence that has turned her into a fashion inspiration for many.
You don’t have to be a member of the royalty to relate to her semi-casual iconic style, and she has taught us that there is nothing wrong to recycle outfits. In fact, for her Broadway appearance she used a high-neck top that we have seen before.
Ferguson wore the same high-neck top in green for her previous engagement in Dallas, Texas, where she attended the Annual Leadership Development Conference with the Women’s Foodservice Forum.
It is not surprising that Ferguson wanted to wear the garment once again, since she has revealed that green is her favorite color. In fact, the color has an emotional significance to her, and it is the one she wore on her daughter’s wedding.
“Mum had carried the handbag at my wedding to Prince Andrew and the admission tickets were still in it. They were green — which was why I wore green on the day," the Duchess shared with Daily Mail.
But not everything is about fashion for Ferguson. Even when she divorced Prince Andrew, the third child of Queen Elizabeth, in 1992, she has kept a public profile and continued with her charitable work.
Not long before her glamorous New York appearance, Ferguson traveled to Sierra Leone to launch a charitable campaign she has supported for some time.
“Such a privilege to be welcomed so warmly by children at this school in Port Loko, Sierra Leone, which has been helped by my charity,” she captioned one of her Instagram pictures documenting her trip.
“It breaks my heart that 121 million children don’t have a chance to go to school which is why I am here to launch Street Child’s campaign to build or renovate 1,000 schools and give an education to 100,000 children,” she added.

Ferguson’s relationship to Prince Andrew, who remains very close to her, made her bond with late Princess Diana, and the two enjoyed a great friendship before becoming distant to the point of stop speaking to one an another.
Nevertheless, Ferguson insists that the two of them were like “siblings,” and she recently used to occasion of the International Woman’s Day to honor Diana as one of the “strong women” in her life.
“Thinking of some of the strong women who've been part of my life - my late mother, my dear, departed friends Diana and Carolyn Cotterell and my fierce, beautiful, loving daughters,” she tweeted on March 8.

“Fergie,” as she is known, married into the British Royal Family in 1986, becoming Andrew’s wife in a televised ceremony officiated at Westminster Abbey. They share daughters Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie.
She has remained friends with her former spouse even after so many years, and they have been frequently rumored to be getting back together.
"Joint parents and best friends, and to try and set the best example for the girls," is what Ferguson has to say about this.
