Queen Mathilde Awards Music Prizes

Queen Mathilde was in Argenteuil this morning to present awards to winners of the Queen Elisabeth – Cello 2017 Competition. For this event, she repeated her pale grey rounded edge pillbox hat with knotted bow trim on the back. This hat is a great pairing with her pale blue dress – a larger or more elaborate hat would overwhelm the dress and the two pieces combine here to create a soft ensemble that seems very well suited to the Belgian queen.

  1. This is a gorgeous hat. I like it best with Th Queen’s hairstyle of June 12, 2016, which doesn’t have a side part.
    But my taste in pillboxes is clearly changing, now that I’ve seen a few larger pillbox styles in recent times (thank you so much Hatqueen!) This one suddenly looks a tad small.

  2. My favorite pairing with this hat is the coat and dress in June 2016, because the twisted fabric effect on the waist of the dress mimics the hat’s “bow” and the color seems identical. However the hat does work well with the other two outfits; I think because it is so pale and the bow so thin that it matches the spider web like effect on the first coat and the gossamer fabric of this dress. Very interesting clothing designs with a versatile sweet little hat.

  3. A versatile if unassuming hat, this pillbox goes again with another outfit. It’s understated but regal.
