Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden celebrates her 37th birthday today. Over the past two years, we have seen Victoria in very few hats as she has usually chosen feathery or floral fascinators. I’m not sure this has always been a good millinery choice for her. Instead of fussy fascinators, I would love to see Victoria embrace more substantial hat shapes that fit better with her modern, clean-lined fashion aesthetic. I think Victoria could carry off hats in interesting shapes- percher and cocktail hats that are not large in scale but architecturally interesting and without fussy embellishment. I would love to see her in something along the lines of this beauty, designed by Australian milliner Jill Humphries of Jill & Jack Millinery. The colour and the gently waved lines would be beautiful on Victoria.
That’s my pick for Crown Princess Victoria. What hat would you like to see her wear?
