Hat From the Past

Royal Hats to a Faberge exhibition, held 68 years ago this month in London, attended by the late Princess Margaret. She is photographed here with the great Russian jeweller’s son, Eugene Faberge, examining a small jewelled box. Her hat, a conical design with short brim, bow and veil, is equally memorable.

    • The word “attractive” must have been meant to apply to the veil or the hyacinth blue color, it’s hard to imagine it applied to the hat itself — those pointy shapes look like something out of science fiction!
