Ascot Day 1: Wrap Up

The first day of races this year also saw hats worn on a few noble British heads. The Duchess of Rutland topped her wonderfully fitted 1950s-esque coat with a percher hat trimmed with an oversize pale blue rose studded with net tulle veil. The hat is the “Full Bloom” design by Edwina Ibbotson Millinery.

Lady Carolyn Warren, wife of the Queen’s racing manager John Warren (and daughter of her former racing manager Lord Porchester) standing just behind the Earl of Wessex on the left below, wore a wide flat brimmed hat in pale pink, lavishly trimmed with curling bows and what looks like a mix of crin and feathers.

Turning our attention to non-royal heads at Ascot today, numerous beautiful designs that caught my eye including:
We end Day 1 with racegoer Edite Ligere in a fantastically theatrical navy hat with bows and blue ostrich plumes by Sarah Marshall for John Boyd.
