Grand Duchess Maria Teresa celebrated her 65th birthday yesterday. We’re honoring this milestone today with a look at a pair of vibrant Fabienne Delvigne hats in her millinery closet:

While the downward curve of appears to be a little more pronounced on the second hat, the nearly identical scale and repeated flat bow trim on two waved disc hats makes them firmly twins for me. Fascinatingly, it’s not just the hats that are twins- so are the coat shapes and the dresses, the red with an upper bodice of lace and the pink with purple sequins. The Grand Duchess does not often wear hats and these two were worn back to back in 2017, making their similarities even more peculiar.
This is not the first instance of the Grand Duchess ordering a particular millinery design in two colours- what do you think of this repeated design in her wardrobe?
