Hats From the Past

Royal Hats  47 years to this day in 1974 when members of Monaco’s royal family celebrated the 25th anniversary of the reign of Rainier III. Princess Grace was a picture of classic beauty in a blush silk dress with a wide brimmed, natural straw picture hat trimmed with pale pink flowers. Princess Caroline made a more contemporary fashion statement in a printed dress with natural straw, relaxed brim Garbo hat and young Princess Stephanie wore a sweet white floral trimmed headband.

Ascot Hat From the Past

I don’t expect there will be many hats paired with sunglasses today but will trust you’ll share and discuss them in my absence here in the comments!

Hat From the Past

Royal Hats to this day in 1959, fifty-nine years ago, to a shopping trip to London that saw Princess Grace of Monaco in a short brimmed, velvet turban/cloche. I’ve been unable to find a colour photograph taken this day- do any of you know what colour this hat was?
