The Duchess of Cambridge (who attended her first formal event in ten months this evening) has developed what looks to be a wonderful partnership with Sarah Burton, creative director of Alexander McQueen. Burton designed a beautiful white double breasted coat dress for Kate that she has worn twice, each time with a different hat.
Look #1: With a black straw hat with windowpane lattice straw fly-away brim and curled feathers by Silvia Fletcher for Lock & Co. for Trooping the Colour on June 11, 2011
Look #2: With a cream parasisal straw percher with layered bow tails by Jane Corbett worn for the Order of the Garter service on June 18, 2012
Which hat, dear readers, do you prefer with this McQueen coat dress?
