Grand Duchess Maria Teresa of Luxembourg celebrated her 59th birthday yesterday. As we surround her in good wishes, let’s suggest a past has we would like to see her repeat in the coming year.
Looking back through the Grand Duchess’ millinery, there is such diversity- percher hats, picture hats with dramatic brims, cloches, pillboxes, and many bold statement pieces. While I adore Maria Teresa’s brave and plucky approach to hat wearing, I would love to see her repeat a classic picture hat with simple lines, similar to the black straw hat seen below. This ensemble – a simple but perfectly tailored dress and jacket topped with a large, classic hat – is my picture of Grand Duchess Maria Teresa at her very best. I’m curious of your picture for her- what hat would you like to see the Grand Duchess repeat in the coming year?
