Birthday of Hereditary Grand Duchess Stéphanie of Luxembourg

Royal HatsThe newest European crown princess, Hereditary Grand Duchess Stéphanie of Luxembourg, is turning 29 today. While Stéphanie’s wedding to Hereditary Grand Duke Guillaume last October was a serious hat extravaganza, we have only seen her in one hat since her glittering wedding. For her birthday, I thought we’d take another peek at a hat she wore during her engagement; a grey pleated and layered Fabienne Delvigne design. It’s not my favourite hat of all time, but it’s not horrible either. I think it’s a pretty good effort for her first ever public hat appearance. Next time, some colour (and maybe a brim?), please!

  1. This grey textured confection of a hat goes perfectly with the grey and white boucle jacket worn over a white satin and voile ruffled dress. Very beautiful with the mix of fabric textures and ruffling but not over the top with the subtle grey and white colors. I would definitely wear this ensemble with a longer dress hem.

  2. I’m really questioning the definition of a “hat.” The subject of this post appears to be a large bow rather than a hat. In other posts, we see items that are on the verge of being large fascinators. I’m still wondering if a toque is really a hat, although it is close to the pillbox style.

    • It is a hat. A very ugly hat, but a hat nonetheless.

      I really hope Grand Duchess Stephanie stops taking fashion advice from her mother-in-law. This is just the sort of terrible thing Grand Duchess Maria Theresa would wear.
