  1. Great to see Margrethe out again in this hat and outfit; perfect for transitioning seasons and also fits the nautical theme without being too obvious.

    What a fantastic photo of Laurentien! I think a cocktail hat would be the perfect addition to her dress; I’m imagining this ribbon cockade design from our own Wies, but with a black base, sage green bow on the back, and a white (or black bejeweled) button of some sort to clearly color coordinate but without matching too much:

    Okay, now how does one get a job with the House of Oranje helping with hats and outfits? Haha . . .

    • Great idea Jake! That hat with your color changes would look incredible on Pincess Laurentian.

      I love the hats on Queen Margrethe, Princess Akiko and Princess Charlene.

      I absolutely love the yellow straw wave disk with red sunburst flowers by Felicity Northeast. It almost doesn’t look real as the flowers seem to float. This would be a spectacular hat at Ascot on Princess Haya.

    • Great styling, Jake! Excellent choice for Laurentien!

      Loving the two-toned straw trilby by Louise Pocock, who also created the ombré fedora that caught my eye last week. Both look so wearable as well as chic.

      Congrats to Anel Heyman on her win. What an entrancing design. At first I thought the feathers were meant to float in the breeze, but it looks from the photos as though they are fixed in place. Lovely.
