Dutch Princess Opens UNICEF Facility

Princess Beatrix was in The Hague today to open the new office of UNICEF Netherlands. For this event, she repeated a periwinkle blue hat with rounded felt crown and tall bumper brim in textured straw. I really want to like this piece but the brim looks a little too crafty and homespun for me. What do you think of this interesting piece?

  1. I thought the texture of the brim was a nice counterpoint to her dress. It often seems like her hats are so enormous that they overpower the whole look, but I can live with this one.

  2. It doesn’t read as crafty or homemade to my eyes, but it is still massive. There’s also such a disconnect between the brim and the crown. Still, I’m glad she sticks to what she likes despite our opinions. 🙂

  3. I can’t for the life of me like like the mega-bumpsters of Princess Beatrix, but the periwinkle blue color is a winner on Princess Beatrix.
