We have seen Princess Haya Bint Al Hussein in both black and white hats so far during Ascot week so I suppose it was only natural that she choose red next. Her large red picture hat for Ladies’ Day today is lavishly trimmed with feathers and straw twists.
Christie: I just love her eclectic style! This hat has all the theatrical elements that no doubt Princess Haya loves. It’s beautifully finished and the textured crinoline trim lightens the look and works well with her dress. I love that she’s opted for more subtle pieces with her jewellery, as the neckline is elegant and works well with a larger hat. Although, not 100% my style, I appreciate the effort, detail and craftsmanship in this look.
Fiona: What a beautiful and perfectly coordinated Ascot look. The lady in red top to toe looks amazing. The appliqué lace detail in the dress is so well picked up by the light and airy trimming on the hat. She loves her horizontal wide brims and she carries them so well. All round a perfect look and one of my favourites so far.
Jill: This is what I have been waiting for all week! I love this, it is everything I see an Ascot hat to be in my mind and is definitely my favorite of the day. I adore the layers of texture, it is a perfect compliment to her dress and is a wonderful example of how to make a tone on tone hat interesting. It’s a lot of hat (and a lot of red) but she carries it beautifully.
Royal Hats: One word- WOW. This hat is why I love Royal Ascot!

I suspect you have much to say about this dramatic red ensemble and can’t wait to hear it!
