This Week’s Extras

Royal Hats

The following new millinery designs caught my eye this week:

Classic picture hat with large handmade rose in navy and denim blue by UK milliner Laura Cathcart
Vibrant pink colour blocked felt fedora with striped hatband from Dutch milliner Wies Mauduit
Adore the sweeping brim and delicate flower trim on this picture hat by UK milliner Sarah Cant
Cream turban with beautiful pale pink leather flowers from Melbourne based Murley & Co.
Striking and modern black & white saucer percher  by Aussie milliner Louise MacDonald
Royal blue straw fedora with interesting, customizable hatband from American milliner Karen Morris
Wide brimmed hat covered in pink and yellow ombre feathers from UK milliner Edwina Ibbotson
Prettiest pink straw dotted button percher with flying bows from UK milliner Ellie Vallerini’s first collection
 Laser cut mirror (yes, it’s glass!) hat with straw crown from London milliner Stephen Jones

Incredible feathered bandeau from French “artiste plumassière” Nelly Saunier. The combination of colour and texture is very unexpected but incredibly beautiful.

 Royal Hats

Lovely look at Queen Margrethe waving to well wishers from the balcony of Amalienborg Palace with her family – minus Crown Prince Frederik –  on Monday, her 78th birthday. (Princess Josephine looked to be in a navy version of her Princessefin woven ribbon headband).

Sweet snaps released by the Swedish monarchy to mark Prince Alexander’s second birthday on THursday

New pictures taken by Crown Princess Mary to celebrate Princess Isabella’s 11th birthday

And finally, Buckingham Palace lit up in honour of the Queen’s Commonwealth Canopy project. The legacy she continues to build is astounding.

    • The second photo of Jazmin was shared publicly in November so taken then (or earlier!). I certainly don’t mind sharing hats not previously highlighted here on the blog but let’s give a date context for them.

  1. I can definitely picture the Duchess of Cambridge in the pink percher hat by Ellie Vallerini! The pink and yellow ombre feathered picture hat is a “wow” hat! I would love to see that at Ascot and the dress the model wears looks like the perfect dress to wear with this amazing hat!

  2. Sheikha Mozah is a stunner, isn’t she? She owns a fashion house (I thought it was Celine, but I may be mistaken.) I love Louise MacDonalds flying bows, always so elegant and I’m smitten with admiration before the feathery wonders of Nelly Saunier.
    Thank you for featuring me Hat Queen; this fedora is very wearable, I think I’m going to wear it if nobody else wants it.

  3. Hoping we will see some of these new designs at the wedding! Also hoping that Max discovers Wies Mauduit — this fedora would be perfect for her!
