I’m sure you all join me extending our deepest sympathy to Queen Elizabeth and her family as they grieve his loss.

Commentary and discussion about hats feels unnecessary today. Comments are left open for messages of condolence.

Cheltenham Festival 2021 Day 4

Zara Tindall shared a fourth fantastic at-home racing look today, again put together by stylist Annie Miall, with red hat described by the designer as, “Peachbloom felt base, adorned with a large velvet poppy, decorative leaf cut-outs, and bow loop detail.” There’s lots to admire about this design beyond it’s vibrant cherry hue- the gently rimmed shape of the beret base, the stitched detail on the bow, the great impact of the cutout leaves. It pairs beautifully with this black velvet collared tweed coat and wraps up a week of wonderful millinery looks that have been a joy to admire.

Cheltenham Festival 2021 Day 3

For the third day of this year’s Cheltenham Festival at home, stylist Annie Miall put Zara Tindall in a classic felt beret hat trimmed with a large crystal bow. It’s another strong look, the hat’s whimsical bow giving focus and counterpoint to the sleek lines of the rest of the ensemble.

Cheltenham Festival 2021 Day 2

Zara Tindall and stylist Annie Miall continued their nod to British millinery during this year’s Cheltenham Festival (from home) today with a striking button beret percher hat. The design, in teal corded felt, features multi- looped bows, cutwork leaves, a teal quill and a magenta silk rose. Cocktail perchers remain a popular style and as such, we see many royal heads but the detail on this particular design- the wonderfully textured corded felt and the impactful cut leaves- makes it uniquely stand out.

Cheltenham Festival 2021 Day 1

While this year’s Cheltenham Festival is taking place without spectators, Zara Tindall and her stylist, Annie Miall, are collaborating this week on at-home racing looks featuring hats from different British milliners. They kicked things off today with this striking black felt beret-saucer hybrid trimmed with a vine of cream leather flowers and arrow trimmed feathers. The hat’s scale and shape works with the coat’s high collar and the scheme of black and white with petrol blue is not an obvious pairing but still works really well.
