Today is Monaco’s National Holiday. As part of the official celebration, the Monegasque Royal Family attended a mass in the Cathedral of Monaco. As an official event, all the royal ladies (except for Stephanie, who seems allergic to headgear) wore a hat.
Let’s start with the good, shall we? Princess Caroline of Hanover & Monaco was dressed in a new Chanel suit (as usual!) but repeated this bold fuchsia and black netted cocktail hat. The hat was last seen a decade ago (at the Monaco National Holiday celebrations in 2002) but does not look it’s age. I thought it was great.
Charlotte Casiraghi was glamorously chic in an understated black hat. While some may have looked too informal in such a hat, she looked amazing.
And now for the less than good- Princess Charlene topped a gorgeous navy coat dress with a black bumper hat trimmed in a swath of blue net veil. The flat-as-a-pancake shape feels costumey to me, like a prop used long ago by a comedian after he sat on it.
