Zara Tindall‘s stellar wardrobe is defined by her impeccable racing fashion, a fabulous archive of head-turning headpieces and an enviable selection of glamorous garments. Yet back in the noughties, the Princess Royal‘s daughter was just like any twenty-something, rocking crop tops and experimenting with denim.
The lovebirds attended the celebrity screening of “Meet The Fockers” at the Covent Garden Hotel, twinning in black and denim ensembles. Zara epitomised the cool-girl glamour of the era, exposing her lower midriff wearing an asymmetrical black crop top complete with three-quarter sleeves, a V-neckline and open shoulder detailing.
The accomplished equestrian, who would have been just 24 at the time, slipped into a fit-and-flare denim midi skirt, teaming her look with a pair of black-heeled cowboy boots and a quilted micro shoulder bag.
The mother-of-three wore her blonde hair in a poker-straight style, highlighting her fresh-faced complexion with a rosy blush and lashings of mascara.
Adding to her collection of Y2K chokers, Zara accessorised with a string pearl necklace and dainty hoop earrings.
Zara’s beau Mike matched his then-girlfriend as he donned a smart black shirt and wide-leg denim jeans.
2005 was quite the year for Zara’s style file. One of her most memorable looks was when she opted for a psychedelic-print shirt dress and knee-high boots for the wedding of King Charles and Queen Camilla. Adding to her 60s-inspired ensemble, the royal added a black fedora and dangling pendant earrings.
In the same year, Zara was a retro dream at Cheltenham Festival in a vintage shearling coat, black mini skirt and pinstripe tights.
The former Olympian’s style has transformed dramatically since her pre-wedding days, with the royal regularly serving in the style stakes as one of the best-dressed royal ladies.
Yet ironically, Zara’s zany outfits and mix-n-match trends of the noughties are going through a renaissance right now, with retro prints, full-length denim and low-rise waistlines dominating the high street. She’s always been a royal It-girl!
