Queen Elizabeth stepped out again yesterday for the Royal Windsor Horse Show. To present a number of fair prizes, she wore a dove grey lampshade style hat with a light lattice patterned straw brim. I like the idea of this hat although the colour is a little too pale and the wide bands around the crown and brim edge lend a rather heavy hand to this hat and seem at odds with the light brim. I’m also not sure about the top stitching on both the hat and the coat (see the visible stitches around the hat crown and coat collar?). What do you think of this hat?
Designer: unknown. It looks like Angela Kelly to me
Previously Worn: This hat is new
