The Royal Wedding: Hats, darlings!

Posted on April 29, 2011

Darlings, we’re pretty tapped out, but we couldn’t close the blogging day without the following advertorial, brought to you by the British Millinery Association. If there was one common response worldwide to today’s proceedings, it was, “Man, those Brits sure do love their jacked-up hats, don’t they?” Old Black ladies in church on Easter Sunday would look at these hats and think, “Those white ladies are wearing some crazy hats!” Hats of the UK? We salute you today. How could we not? It was like a garden full of color and shape and just a little bit of crazy to make it fun. Pick your best and worst. We’ve gotta give it up to Princess Bea for sheer nerve. It takes some royal brass ones to show up at your cousin’s wedding wearing a be-ribboned toilet seat. Brava, darling. Way to get yourself trending on twitter.

    Chelsy Davy looks like she is wearing mismatched pieces from Steinmart paired with what was once a headband from Claire’s. It’s all so problematic.

    Joss Stone’s hat is adorable, but she ruined the look by TALKING ON HER CELL PHONE!!! Tacky, tacky, tacky. Put it away.

    Surpising absolutely no one, Bea’s ridiculously awesome hat has become a meme. And has been immortalized in cupcake form: http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=198541056854265&set=a.125716464136725.10101.125418864166485&type=1&theater

      Haah! That’s fabulous!

    LOVED Kate’s gown! Totally worth the wait.

    Another thing that is obvious–none of them shop at Kohl’s. How refreshing to see sleeves, and not a halter top in sight.

    I know people want to be noticed and photographed, but showing up to a family church wedding looking like the York girls did is just plain disrespectful.

    Is the hat that Tara Palmer-Tomkinson is wearing a statement of some sort? After all, it’s the shape of a certain portion of female anatomy and it has a huge flower in the center….
