This Week’s Extras

Royal Hats

Our friends over at Luxarazzi have an interesting interview with milliner Sylvia Martinez about her participation in a recent exhibition which included designing pieces for Grand Duchess Maria Teresa and Hereditary Grand Duchess Stéphanie.  I’m curious to hear your thoughts on her designs.

Some very interesting millinery at the Chanel runway show this week- see here for the closeup and here for the full ensemble. I’m not sure I’m feeling the slouchy crowns. Also interesting were Dolce and Gabbana’s lavish floral crowns  and Stephen Jones’ over-the-face angel wings at Dior. And I have no words whatsoever for Stephen Jones’ men’s tweed caps.

I’d love to see this crimson and gold feathered fedora by Jess Collett at the Cheltenham races this year on a royal head. What a fun style departure it would be for the Duchess of Cambridge.

You still have a few more days to cast votes for your favourite new, repeated and men’s royal hats of 2016

Have you heard about the Georgian Papers Programme, in which more than 350,000 usually unseen royal documents from the Georgian period (most relating to King George III and Queen Charlotte) are being made available online? This article at the Guardian has a great explanation of the project as does this page from the Royal Collection Trust. The project went live this morning.

  1. I hope the Luxembourg ladies trade their Sylvia Martinez hats. The multicolored one would be a nice jolt of color for Princess Stephanie. The cream lace looks more matronly.

  2. Yes, that fab Jess Collett hat would look great on Duchess Catherine.
    And how handy that palace balustrade proved for two squirmy toddlers who wouldn’t hold still – providing a perfect child-sized viewing post. Sooo cute!
