King Philippe and Queen Mathilde of Belgium paid a one day official visit to Rome yesterday. For this visit, the final stage of a tour to the founding countries of the European Union, Queen Mathilde wore another new hat. This calot, worn off to the side of her head, was covered in the same fabric as her Armani coat and featured a wide twisted ribbon tail. This hat did not work for me- I think the same fabric on the hat and coat was just too much and the twisted ribbon ended up looking like an oddly placed lightening bolt. What did you think of this hat?
Designer: Philip Treacy (see this pair of very similar designs)
