Today’s christening of Prince Oscar at the Royal Chapel in Stockholm’s Royal Palace was more of a family affair than a state occasion (as happens with many second royal children) and as such, there was a small contingent of royal guests. Crown Princess Mette-Marit of Norway, who was chosen as one of Prince Oscar’s godmothers, wore a sparkling headband. While I could go on again about how much I wish Mette-Marit would actually wear a hat, I’m instead going to move on to the other Scandinavian crown princess’ hat because it’s actually worthy of discussion.
Designer: Miu Miu. It is the “Embellished Pearl Headband”
Previously Worn: I believe this is new
While the Norwegian crown princess’ headpiece was disappointing, Crown Princess Mary of Denmark wowed in a new picture hat. In black finely woven straw, the design featured a sidesweep upfolded brim that is balanced by a gentle pleated wave ruffle on the brim’s other side. Tying beautifully with Mary’s border print dress, the hat is embellished with a cream spray of leaves studded with several types of feathers. The gentle movement of this design makes it a winner for me and I thought its pairing with this dress made for a spectacular ensemble.
