  1. Queen Maxima’s style always fascinates me. But her wrap hats are not my favorites, especially when they are so similar in color to her hair. Queen Margrethe’s cereal bowl hat is just ridiculous.

  2. Good choices on the bad hats! They really are all bad. The worst are the head bandage things on Max & Mathilde. Awful.

    • As outlined at the bottom of the post, voting has been set so that you can vote once every 24 hours. I think this is a more fair way to handle polls and I will be using this method with all polls in 2015.

    • Haha, what country are you from A? I have heard of people voting over and over to make sure their candidate gets in… but I believe most states impose “one man one vote”!

      • None of your business. Besides the old polls used to say that we can vote as many times as we want. That’s how it should be.

        • Let’s keep things respectful. Indeed- the polls used to have no restrictions on voting. I decided to make the change and I’m sticking with it. I understand not everyone will like it and that’s fine.

      • As they used to say in Chicago in the days of Al Capone (perhaps they still say it), “Vote early … and vote often.”

  3. I strongly dislike Queen Margarethe’s blue “Teletubbie” hat. Beautiful color, but the black leather?
    and and the little beanie stem on the top are just plain ugly.

  4. I actually like a couple of these! I love Queen Maxima’s leaf hat. So stylish! So different! And, while it would never make my favorite list, Countess Sophie’s wacky stovepipe hat is interesting, quirky and a little outlandish.
    I truly hate the ‘bandage’ hats, however!

    • I agree. I actually quite liked that leaf hat, but it wasn’t in my top 10. I was surprised to see it in the worst hat collection.

      • Let’s please call this group the “least favourite” – opinions about these hats are entirely subjective and in truth, they are simply the ones that readers here have nominated as their least favourite. It feels far more respectful to the designers and those who wear them if we refer to them as such.
