Princess Michael of Kent celebrates her 69th birthday today. Marie-Christine’s hat style, as we all know, tends toward the dramatic. While she occasionally wears an oversize pillbox, she is most often seen in a large picture hat trimmed with showstopping flowers, feathers or bows. I thought about recommending a different hat style for her but can’t imagine her truly suiting a tailored trilby or minimalist calot. I think Princess Michael simply suits a picture hat- the bigger and more dramatic, the better. The hat I have chosen for her is made by New York milliner Suzanne Newman, a hat designer who makes marvelous high-society hats. I think this pairing of designer and muse would be a match made in millinery heaven.
