Mike and Zara Tindall are in Gold Coast, Australia with their family for an annual trip to fulfill commitments as brand ambassador of Magic Millions racing events. Yesterday, they attended the Magic Millions Carnival and Raceday, Zara in a chic hat described by the designer as a “hand crafted black straw boater beautifully woven with traditional black grosgrain ribbon and a 9-10cm brim for great sun protection.”
I love the hat’s informal ease, emphasized by it’s brilliant pairing with Zara’s red animal print dress, beach waved hair and sandals. It might not be my top choice for a formal royal engagement but for a spokeswoman at a sporting event in the middle of summer, it hits just the right note of effortless glamour.
Designer: Sarah J Curtis’ Harmony Black Boater. Scanlan Theodore dress.
Previously Worn: this hat is new
Zara donned a polo helmet later in the day to participate in a charity polo match that raised over $300,00 AUS to support those who have lost their homes and livelihoods in the devastating Australian bushfires. In the end, races and hats simply don’t matter when people, animals and the environment are suffering.
