This Week’s Extras

Royal Hats

Princess Beatrice attended the MET Gala Monday night in New York. The layered headbands she wore, combined with this gown, made a stunning look for her.

A number of you have messaged me about the numerous other headpieces seen at the MET gala on Monday night. British milliner Stephen Jones shared a number of his creations included in the event’s exhibition along with the show stopping beaded brocade mitre hat he created for gala co-chair Rihanna.

  1. Her Majesty wears pants, called trousers in the U.K., when she goes riding at Windsor. And I agree that her collection of designer scarves are fabulous and beautiful works of art!

    • Thanks Maja for the wonderful slideshow of Princess Alexandra. You can really see all sides of her lovely cream hat with net trim and I didn’t realize that this hat has a “poof” on the back right side which makes it more interesting. Her outfit was lovely, too.
