Lovely hats at the wedding of Stephanie Phillips yesterday (she is the younger sister of Peter Phillips and Zara Tindall). Zara wore a blue sinamay button with white windowpane sinamay flying bow by Camilla Rose. Princess Anne repeated an elegant ivory sinamay hat with sidesweeping brim, sloped crown, layered pleated hatband and feather spray. Lindsay Wallace wore a pink silk floral headpiece with swath of net veil and Autumn Phillips wore a lilac sinamay button percher with silk ruffle trim by Bee Smith. Savannah and Isla Phillips and Mia and Lena Tindall were all bridesmaids.

Have you seen the Liberty London silk scarf printed with drawings of 70 of her hats, released for her Platinum Jubilee? I’m not a scarf wearer but I might need this one… It’s for sale here. 

The following new millinery designs caught my eye this week (see the comments for more):

Ascot 2022 Day 3: Mike & Zara Tindall

The Tindalls attended Ladies’ Day at Royal Ascot today. Zara wore a vibrant green straw boater hat with unique triangular folded ribbon hatband. The design is trimmed with a fuchsia gravity-defying rose.

The punchy green and pink scheme on the hat is so well balanced by Zara’s cream shirtwaist dress with fun buttons that linked to the hat and other pink accessories. The pieces combine again to make a standout overall look for Zara.

The whimsical hat is an unexpected pairing for this dress, but that’s what makes it work so well. Pair the hat with a floral ensemble and it would be difficult to keep the look from falling to twee. Here, the hues pull together while the edginess of the dress balances the frothy, fun hat. I’ll admit it’s not something I would wear but it’s so interesting to admire and Zara deserves kudos for carrying it off so flawlessly.
