The Duchess of Cornwall celebrated her birthday on July 17, an occasion we belatedly celebrate with another inventory of her hats. This time we’re looking at all of the pink designs in her wardrobe, shown below in order of debut:
Designer: Both Philip Treacy
Introduced: July 22, 2008; June 17, 2009
It’s a lot of barely-there blush! Camilla clearly prefers pastel hues, especially for her summer wardrobe, and she wears pink well. There are a few surprises here- I don’t recall seeing hat #1 before and it’s lovely! The other surprise for me was aside from the feather pinwheel of #5, these hats are one of two shapes- either the chunky crown/gentle sidesweep of #2 and #3 or the sharp slice sidesweep of #1, #4 and #6. They are wonderfully dramatic shapes that suit Camilla but I’d like to see a little more variation.
What do you notice about these blush beauties? Which hats stand out here most to you?
