  1. I do like pillboxes. The best were 1. Princess Eugenie’s pillbox variation. It was so much more than just a pillbox! Lovely pink shade too.
    2. Crown Princess Mary’s purple pillbox, simple, chic, and great colour on her. 3. Princess Laurentien’a camel, large-scale straw pillbox designed by Eudia, trimmed with autumn-hued pheasant feathers, because it offered a little more than ordinary pillboxes and the colour suited her.

    • It’s a pillbox variation, with an indented crown. It’s not a tall pillbox, but it can be considered a pillbox. The designer described it as a pillbox so that’s how we will label it as well!

  2. I hope that cocktail hats will keep on replacing fascinators. I hate fascinators.

    I also wish fashion reporters would stop calling EVERYTHING a fascinator.

  3. Pillbox looks so clean and allows the face to show its beauty. They all look fine. I did not realize how many pillbox had been worn in 2014.
    I likedthehat Queen Max wore last year …mostly a white hat with black brim…and not covered with decorations. Hope we see more of that type in 2015. Simple elegant and sophisticated. Queen Elizaeth looks so nice in uncluttered hats.

  4. Mary’s is beautiful, as is Eugenie’s magenta number.

    But for 2015 – please can we see big, brimmed hats make a real return please? I’m bored!

  5. I like the classic and elegant look of a pillbox hat. I’m surprised how many different princesses and queens wore them last year!

  6. Crown Princess Mary’s purple pillbox was my overall favorite, and I loved the outfit she wore it with too, right down to the purple shoes. I love pillboxes but we seemed to be deluged with them in 2014.
