  Emma Thompson stays true to her style no matter the occasion – even if she’s receiving one of Britain’s highest honors in Buckingham Palace.    When the actress, 59, was appointed a Dame Commander of the Order of the British Empire by Prince William in early November, the actress arrived in a fitted dark blue pantsuit, which she paired with plain white sneakers – and her footwear choice sent Twitter wild. Many users praised her bold decision while others claimed that she was disrespecting royal protocol.   Get push notifications with news, features and more.

Their fashion police went, ‘Oh my god! What is she doing? She is destroying the whole Cannes experience! Everyone is coming to see the beautiful Cannes actresses all dressed up looking gorgeous and look what she is doing, she’s wrecking the whole thing!'”    But Thompson wasn’t bothered one bit by the backlash. “I don’t care,” she declared.
