Keeping to her go-to pale summer palette, the Duchess of Cornwall was in cream from brim to toe. She repeated her ivory straw picture hat with off-centre peak crown and a wide, asymmetrical brim trimmed in multiple layers of sand coloured straw ribbon looped into a side stylized bow.
Jill: She looks very lovely, the hat is flawless both on her and with the dress. I wish she had dared to entertain a new silhouette as this seems to be the same shape as yesterday’s chapeau but I can’t fault her too much for that since it suits her so well.
Christie: I know it sounds like I’m loving everything today. But this piece is another ‘love’ moment from, I’m assuming, master milliner Philip Treacy. It’s actually quite a unique crown shape, but is balanced beautifully with the drape of the trim. I love trims that become effortlessly part of the design and the look, and I think that this hat most certainly achieves that. Just gorgeous.
Royal Hats: It’s a beautiful hat but I think the detail is lost in this sea of cream. I know Camilla has a style that she’s comfortable but I would love to see some of her MANY cream hats find new life paired with some more colourful coats and dresses.
Fiona: Nothing to write home about here – a nice safe hat but I do like the mocha jinsin detail. I am not keen on the fit and flare coat which is a style she so often wears and is ageing, I think a straight up and down or form fitted coat would be much more flattering. I also think she is very mono coloured with nothing outstanding in the accessory department so a little more latte/mocha colour in the accessory department would not have gone astray.
It seems that we are all fans of Camilla’s beautiful hat but have mixed opinions about the rest of her ensemble. What do you think?
