There are a number of additional hats to share with you all from the races today. Lady Carolyn Warren (wife of John Warren, one of Queen Elizabeth’s racing bloodstock consultants, and daughter of the Queen’s longtime racing manager the 7th Earl of Carnarvon) repeated the large red straw Philip Treacy picture hat with straw twist trim we saw her in last year.
Brigadier Andrew Parker-Bowles, longtime friend of Princess Anne (to her left, below) was photographed in a black top hat (silk, I think?)
Lady Kitty Spencer topped her floral dress with in a pale, steely- blue straw percher with crin and silk rose trim from Philip Treacy (it’s OC 273 from SS 2017). The combination of dress and hat is unexpected but works so well.
Lady Laura Cathcart wore in a nude pink picture hat of her own design with a wide, mushroom brim topped with a large bow.
Milliners Harvey Santos, Lisa Tan, Vivien Sherif, Stephen Jones and Jess Collett all in wonderful hats. The women are all in pieces of their own design, as is Stephen Jones, I believe.
Milliner Sophie Beale, shown here with Harvey Santos and Stephen Jones, in a beautiful black and white wide brimmed design.
Also at the races today were one of your favourite pairings- milliner Rachel Trevor Morgan and designer Stewart Parvin. Rachel’s black feathered headpiece is her own design.
With so many hat makers at the races today, my daily “Nod To Milliners” award is a tough call… it goes again to Lisa Tan and her marine blue straw boater hat with checkered feather trim, placed at a wonderfully jaunty angle and paired amazingly with a vintage Chanel striped suit.
