This Week’s Extras

Archduchess Eleonore von Habsburg and Mr. Jérôme D’Ambrosio were civilly married in Monaco this week. The bride’s mother, Francesca von Habsburg-Lothringen, shared photos of the ceremony and following lunch, for which British milliner Stephen Jones made hats for all of the guests (he also made the bride’s headpiece).

My beloved daughter Eleonore just married Jerome D'Ambrosio, my fantastic new son in law in an intimate ceremony in at the Mairie of Monaco, observing all the restrictions of social distancing, followed by a very cosy lunch that was organised at a beautiful property belonging to a dear old friend in Cap d'antillbes. It was such a lovely day, such a precious moment with so much love in the air! A whole collection of hats was produced my world class milliner Stephen Jones for all of us! The happy couple are "Je ne sais où!" on a short honeymoon before Jerome has to go to Berlin for the next series of Formula E races as the season finally is about to start! Bless them both for all the love that they shared with only direct familly and a few close friends from Monaco. No one flew in, no one came from afar... but the match was made in heaven! @eleonorehabsburg @jeromedambrosio @fhabsburg62 @mareymann @stephenjonesmillinery 📷 @luc_castel Ferdinand and me!

Glorious social media that has allowed me to meet, to know and to work with such an amazing human being and talented artist. @marabarros I love you 😍 #picoftheday #uniquehat #rafapeinador #hat #hats #modernmillinery #bedpokefashion #redcarpetstyle #coolfashion #milliner #millinery #millinerycouture #stylist #styleblog #headpiece #racingfashion #sombrero #racewear #butterfly #instafashion #fashionhat #hampersanddiamonds #fashionstylist #uniquehat #couture #uniqueart #vogueteam Facebook: rafa peinador Twitter: @rafa_peinador Etsy: Posted @withregram • @marabarros Las redes sociales les sirven a algunos para vomitar su odio, protegidos por el anonimato o el hecho de no tenerte en frente. A mí me sirven para promocionar mis trabajos, para sentirme más cerca de vosotros y para conectar con gente que, de otro modo, muy probablemente ni conocería. No sé cómo di con su perfil pero sé que le escribí admirando su trabajo y confesándole las ganas que tenia de trabajar con él. Y me respondió. Y su respuesta fue una grata sorpresa porque me contó que a veces trabajaba por encargo pero que otras se le antojaba hacer una pieza única. Así que me pidió que le hablase de mí... Menuda cosa fue a decirme!! Le hablé de mis padres, del mar onubense, de mis miedos, mis sueños, mis fobias y el objetivo por el que llevo luchando desde que tengo uso de razón: SER LIBRE. La conexión fue inmediata y me envió 4 increíbles bocetos, a cual más hermoso, pero es cierto que este sombrero me enamoró. Gracias, @rafa_peinador por tan hermoso regalo, gracias por escucharme y captar mi esencia a la perfección, gracias por aparecer en mi vida. Nunca te he visto pero, ya sabes, ya te quiero! Benditas redes sociales!! • • • Sombrero: @rafa_peinador Blazer: Brazalete: @roselindeaccessories Pendientes: @noc.atelier Fotografía: @jesusmayorga.estudio #madrid #londres #diseño

A fascinating look at what it took to dress in the 18th century

Have you ever wondered what all goes into dressing in those big, fancy eighteenth-century dresses? What did Madame de Pompadour wear, and what were all the layers of her Rococo dress? In this video Lauren demonstrates getting dressed in a Robe a la Francaise, or sacque, gown, accurate to the period of c. 1750 to 1770. . This gown was made using Simplicity 8578 and The American Duchess Guide to 18th Century Dressmaking. Both are available here: . #historical #historicalcostume #costume #costumedesign #costumedesigner #sewing #dress #americanduchess #historiccostume #fashion #oldfashioned⁠ #georgian #18thcentury #1700s #1770s #1780s #1790s #georgianfashion #georgiandress #historicalcosplay #marieantoinette ⁠

Today, The Duke of Edinburgh has been succeeded as Colonel-in-Chief of @rifles_regiment by The Duchess of Cornwall, in a ceremony which took place at both Windsor Castle and Highgrove House. . The Duke has been Colonel-in-Chief of successive Regiments that have made up The Rifles since 1953, and today, they are the largest infantry Regiment in the British Army. . The Duke of Edinburgh’s arrival was marked by four Buglers, who are members of The Rifles’ military band. . The Duke was thanked for his 67 years of service and support to the Regiment, before the Buglers sounded the ‘No More Parades’ call, marking HRH’s final ceremony as The Rifles’ Colonel-in-Chief. . At Highgrove House, The Duchess of Cornwall was greeted by a Bugle call, and was welcomed by the Regiment’s Colonel Commandant as The Rifles’ new Colonel-in-Chief. . The Duchess has close links with the Regiment, and has served as Royal Colonel of its fourth Battalion since 2007.

  1. So many sculptural shapes in new designs this week: the stunning blue Ana Espina, the Marta Ruta flying bow (I noticed the knot, HQ!), and the rippled white Lia Gureeva. The folded trim on Louise Macdonald‘s percher and the ombré feathers on Aoife Harrison‘s also caught my eye.

    Wouldn’t it be wonderful to be a guest at a wedding with Stephen Jones hats available for all?!

    Lovely photos of Eloise, Prince Felix, and little Prince Charles and families.

    • I think it would be wonderful to be at a wedding with a selection of hats to choose from period, Stephen Jones or not! 😀

  2. Wishing Prince Joachim a healthy and speedy recovery!
