Slovakian President Ivan Gasparovic and his wife Silvia arrived in Denmark today for a state visit. The Danish Royal family arrived at the airport to greet them with hats in tow. Queen Margrethe repeated an electric blue beanie cap that I just can’t find much good to say about (any hat that makes a queen look either bald or like a Teletubby is just WRONG). I think this hat should be retired.
Princess Marie wore a charcoal grey Garbo hat to match her lovely grey coat dress, but I think the floppy brim of the hat made it fall flat. One of her structured pillboxes would have better suited the structured military cut of her coat dress, me thinks. The only successful hat of the day (in my humble opinion!) was Princess Mary’s structured dark blue felt chapeau designed by Danish milliner Susanne Juul. It was absolutely splendid.
