Queen Mathilde was in Paris yesterday to take in an exhibition at the Centre Pompidou dedicated to late Belgian surrealist painter Rene Magritte. For this visit, she repeated a charcoal grey silk headpiece that, while from the front appears to be a stacked calot, is actually a pair of open rings that encircle her head. The first time we saw this design, I was not a fan but the styling here with Mathilde’s fantastic blue frock and grey accessories has made me warm to it. These open crowned headpieces have such a light and airy aesthetic that works well for less formal engagements such as this.
