Princess Beatrice Hat Page 1
It’s the end of September, which means if you’re a person who actually plans things, you should have started your hunt for the perfect Halloween costume about a week ago. And while you’re sifting through mounds and mounds of top hats and Cleopatra headdresses, we think you should consider the one hat to rule them all: Princess Beatrice of York‘s royal wedding hat.
You guys, Tom Ford is 50-year-old fashion genius. At this point, age and prestige have all but just handed the man the undeniable right to spout wise on just about anything he wants, and that includes stories we thought were over months ago. Case in point: the man still has thoughts on that much-maligned Philip Treacy fascinator that Princess Beatrice of York wore to the Royal Wedding.
Remember how much shade the Internet threw at Princess Beatrice of York for that hat she wore to the Royal Wedding? Apparently it got so dark, she needed to hire a new stylist to bring her back into the light. Enter Charlie Anderson, the architect of some of Emma Watson‘s strongest looks, who’s been doing a pretty good job keeping Bea out of the worst-dressed pages.
Remember (as if you could forget) that hat Princess Beatrice wore to the royal wedding? The one that got compared to everything from Fallopian tubes to the flying spaghetti monster and now has its own Facebook page and Tumblr? Some called it the most fascinating fascinator at Westminster Abbey, and others said it was an affront to everything that is good and right with millinery. But we hardly think anyone would object to the hat’s next outing, an auction to benefit needy kids all over the world.
British milliner Phillip Treacy, who created the hat Princess Beatrice of York wore to the Royal Wedding, is standing by his work even in the face of countless comments (and Internet jokes!) that that hat was just not cool.
There are hats, and then there are hats, and the ones atop the heads of the attendees of today’s Royal Wedding were most certainly wearing the latter. From chic chapeaus that perfectly complemented the dresses they were paired with to absurdly curly, feathery creations that looked more like they wanted to bite you than to stay on top of a princess’s head, the hats on display this morning were so stunning (and so frightening) that we haven’t been able to compose ourselves well enough to put them in a post. Until now! Herein, the greatest moments in millinery from the wedding of Duchess Catherine and Prince William.
