Royal Ascot Page 1
Models, royals, and crazy hats? It’s our lucky day!
Today marked the third day of the annual Royal Ascot, in which fancy British people wear fancy hats to watch fancy horses race.
The hats at today’s Royal Ascot races were far more subdued than yesterday’s wacky and tacky styles, so today we’re focusing on the “Royal” part of things.
Today marks the start of the Royal Ascot, a five-day
hat horse race. The royal family (minus Prince William, Prince Harry, and Kate Middleton), notable Brits, and other Brits headed to Berkshire to watch animals run around, but we’ve got our eyes on their toppers.
This was the week of hats! So many awesome hats! This was also the week Anna Wintour accepted a Webby, Lady Gaga‘s meat dress went on display, and Carolina Herrera was confirmed as Twilight‘s wedding dress designer. And have you seen Elle Fanning‘s stunning Marie Claire editorial? Because you should.
Okay, we’re officially declaring June “British Hat Month”. Hats, hats, hats. Today marked the first day of the Royal Ascot, one of Britain’s most prestigious horse races. And let’s be real, there’s really no more hat-appropriate event than a horse race.
