  1. Penny is unfailingly elegant. Love Scarlett Gray’s entire look except the shoes. Glad to see the lovely Ukraine-inspired headpiece.

  2. What wonderful posts from Day 1 of Royal Ascot. Thank you Hat Queen.

    Countess Mountbatten and her daughter Lady Alexandra are very elegant. Two beautiful hats.

    Lady Carolyn Warren’s hat is fab, I love the flying bow.

    Charlotte Hawkins, Scarlett Gray and Rosie Tapner all wearing stunning hats.

  3. Fine looks from the Countess Mountbatten of Burma, Lady Alexandra, and Lady de Mauley. Here are a couple of just released closeups of the Countess’ hat (presumably made by Dillon Wallwork):

    The Crown Prince of Dubai was also in attendance and presumably wore a top hat at some point:

    So glad to see Lady Carolyn Warren in something new and such a vibrant color like this. Unfortunately this was a rare hat and outfit misstep for Carole Middleton IMO.

    Another hat that stood out to me (beyond all the fantastic ones already featured) was Belinda Strudwick’s scarlet top hat and trouser suit:
