A British wedding must have accessory is the headpiece. A hat to be precise, and the funkier the better. It’s almost sec religious to say that British wedding guests will not be allowed to pass till she puts a hat on. Kate Middleton is famous for donning hats to events and weddings, and she looks ridiculously good in them too. Coloured, feathered, flowered, furred – she’s worn them all. So it’s no wonder that for the British royal wedding, we will definitely expect a sea of hats and headgears filling the room.I know nothing about hats except that it’s not a simple look to pull off. You’ll need to try it on and pair it with your outfit, otherwise that headpiece will simply look unflattering and out of place. You have to wear the hat and not let the hat wear you.
The only famous hat milliner that I know and have goshed over is Philip Treacy, who is no doubt world famous and top talent at what he does. I’m sure he’s overwhelmed with the amount of hat orders and demands pouring in since the invitations were out for the Royal Wedding tomorrow. But, I’m eager to see what he’s created for his royal guests and how they will pair up his creations. The man knows his hats, otherwise Alexander McQueen wouldn’t dream up a collaboration with him.
He’s adored and donned by famous fashion fans, including intern Lady Gaga.
So, any bets on who will be crowned the Mad Hatter of all at tomorrow’s royal ceremony? Here are some safer choices by Philip Treacy from his Spring/Summer 2011 collection.
Surfing through Philip Treacy’s website makes me wanna customize one instantly for my own afternoon tea party as I’m an overnight fan. Gosh, I’m so excited to watch the royal wedding happening in less than 24 hours.
