  1. Kisaval, I personally don’t see the “floating above the head” effect that you are describing — I think it’s just the latticework and the shadows that might be causing that — but here is a different photo that shows the base, as you were wishing:

  2. Both of these hats are winners, but I have an issue with how each is placed on the head. Sophie’s hat seems to be floating an inch or so above her head. It is probably just the photo and in another view one would see a base that would make the hat seem more “anchored”. I would like to see Charlene place her hat at a lesser angle. Just my opinion, wondering what the rest of you think.
