Since she let her prince go, Fergie, 34, has let herself go. She and Andrew have been spotted together recently, but her sense of style is as on-again, off-again as her royal romance. The Duchess of York has been known to drop a bundle on clothes, and sometimes, dressed in Yves Saint Laurent, she looks fine. But most of the time, well.... Early last' year she turned up for a photo shoot with her hair bedraggled and a hole in her black opaque tights. Fergie's outfits aren't so much classics as lacking in class. Or, as one London columnist quipped, "She has the knack of wearing clothes that never go out of style. They look just as ridiculous year after year."
