princessbea_butteflyhat.jpgPrincess Beatrice has had a rough trot lately. With the tabloids trailing her every move, she was recently roasted in the press after she was snapped in a bikini while on holiday. The nasty folks at the Daily Mail even went as far as to nickname her 'Pampered Miss Piggy'... harsh much?!

But Bea now has a reason to smile after Roberto Cavalli revealed to the Mail (ironic?) that he would like her to be his new muse.

The Italian designer, who is pals with Bea's mum the Duchess of York, said that she 'looks great' and he is going to 'create a couple of things with her in mind.'

Perhaps Bea could collaborate with Cavalli... After all, she seems to have an excellent eye for style herself (see above left, in a Philip Treacy design).
