The Countess of Wessex celebrates her 49th birthday today. I think Sophie is looking better than ever these days and her collaboration with British milliner Jane Taylor is one of the most exciting ones in all of royal millinery (and yielded two of our top ten royal hats in 2013). I can not imagine a better pairing than Sophie and Jane… so my pick for the Countess is something completely different. Vintage, simple and classic. I think this black cocktail hat with pearls and net veil would be dynamite on Sophie.
The designer of the hat above(left) is unknown; the hat on above right was designed by Nerida Fraiman. I’m curious, dear readers, what hat would you like to see on the Countess of Wessex this year?
NOTE- It is also Queen Mathilde’s birthday today. Think about what hat you want to suggest for our newest European Queen- we will celebrate her tomorrow!
