Queen Elizabeth and the Duke of Edinburgh celebrated the 150th anniversary of the Journalists’ Charity at Stationers’ Hall in London today. The Queen wore what I think might be a new hat in cream straw with a squared crown and small, flat brim. While I like the shape on Her Majesty, the embellishment made this hat one I do not like. The silk calla lilies look unattractive and their placement, plumb in the middle of the Queen’s forehead, is unfortunate. The cream jacquard band around the brim relates neither to rest of the hat or to the Queens suit, making me wonder if this hat was made to match another outfit?
Designer: unknown. The shape of this hat and the style of embellishment is characteristic of Angela Kelly
Previously Worn: I believe this hat is new.
