Imperial Royals Celebrate Aristocratic Club

Last Tuesday, June 3, 2014, members of the Imperial Royal family attended the 140th anniversary of Kasumi Kaikan, a aristocratic club in Japan.  Empress Michiko looked to be wearing a large saucer hat with swirled ribbon in the same pale silver as her beautiful suit. While I would love to see a more detailed picture of this hat, it appears to be a winner. Princess Kiko repeated her white pillbox hat (I think this hat has a bow at the back, seen here during its last outing). The slightly rounded edges on this hat work well for Kiko’s angular features, although the all white ensemble is rather boring. Perhaps this club has a secret dress code?
