Subtly Chic Queen Elizabeth Overshadowed By Two Giant Flower Hats
We’ve all had that awkward moment when you show up at an event to see someone else wearing the same thing. But that generally happens when you’re wearing something from American Apparel and NOT when you’re being squashed by a mammoth fuchsia rose from Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland.
For Royal Ascot Day 1, Isabella Christensen and Simon Cowell’s ex Jackie St Clair made millinery choices that raised as many questions as they did eyebrows. Were they bribed by Princess Beatrice to out-ridiculous her Phillip Treacy hat? Is this a metaphor for the death of horse racing journalism? And what the heck are they going to wear on Day 3?
By comparison, Queen Elizabeth II looked subtly chic in pearls and a Kate Middleton-approved shade of pastel pink. We’ve been loving her scarlet and cobalt blue brights, but maybe she was feeling her age after partying on the SoHo House rooftop only hours before.
