This Week’s Extras

Royal Hats

The following new millinery designs caught my eye this week:

Dramatic red and cream stripes on this oversize picture hat from NY based  milliner Anya Caliendo
Black and white crin design with lace applique trim from Italian milliner Giulia Mio
Stunning straw teardrop perchers in pale pink and shocking pink from British milliner Rosie Olivia
Vivien Sheriff’s take on a brown fedora- chic, wearable and miles away from boring!
Pyramid disc covered in pleated Petersham ribbon in the loveliest shade of blue from Canadian milliner Helen Gair
Delicately beautiful pink straw calot with flower and birdcage veil from UK milliner Laura Cathcart
Red leather percher with giant white bloom from Tasmanian brand Cessiah Alice Millinery
Interesting cloche variation in black straw from Dutch milliner Myra van de Korput
Simple but beautiful hand draped turban in luminous blue straw from Queensland based Leigh millinery
Striking, chic and oh-so wearable burgundy fedora in fur felt from UK milliner Camilla Rose (love the feathers!)

And from Brisbane based milliner Marilyn Van den Berg, this cream straw disc with twist and stunningly realistic spring flowers. This is the kind of hat I dream about wearing to Royal Ascot.

 Royal Hats

Congratulations to Princess Mabel who was awarded the Geuzen Medal 2018 for her inspiring leadership and committment to end childhood marriage globally.

Prince Christian of Hanover and Alessandra de Osma celebrated their religious wedding in Peru yesterday. There were no hats but head over to the Royal Order of Sartorial Splendor for a great review of the bride’s dress and tiara.

Princess Charlene shared these charming snaps of Princess Gabriella and Prince Jacques helping their father, Prince Albert, celebrate his 60th birthday this week.

  2. This Week’s Extras were jam packed with amazing hats. Congratulations to the talented milliners whose creations are so beautiful that I cannot comment on just one. I hope we get to see many of them at Ascot this year. Thanks so much Hat Queen for a great write up.
