And so my number one hat of the Royal Wedding was the hat worn by Miriam Gonzalez Durantez. Fantastic, one of the best versions of turban hat I have ever seen. It looked perfect from every angle, it was unique, appropriate, full of Spanish flair and I would wear it in a heart bit!
My hat is off to the milliner Conchitta who is responsible for this beautiful hat!
That single black ribbon running through the feathered petals of the flower has me absolutely speechless.
I thought that The Queen herself looked beautiful and very well put together in her yellow ansamble.:-)
I love the simple elegant lines of the hat worn by Kate Middleton's Mother. Beautiful blue-grey color and very demure outfit. Class all the way!
I thought Queen Sofia and Princess Letizia of Spain looked beautiful in their very well coordinated hats.
Princess Letizia is one of the most beautiful women of the nobel blood. I loved her choice of the hat.
I thought Zara Phillips looked beautiful in her wide brimed sinamay hat.One of my most favorite hats of the Wedding was a very simple hat worn by Miss Charlene Wittstock.
A perfect example of how to dress your head in such a way that you actually wear your hat, not all the way around, when your hat wears you.:-) . Unfortuantely, there was plenty of examples to that.
One of a more "fashion forward" hats of the Wedding. To tell you the truth I still do not know how I feel about this hat, but I decided to include it anyway: it looks interesting, chic and like something I would definitely try on.:-)
I absolutely loved the cobal blue outfit worn by Tara Palmer-Tomkinson. And the hat is flawless! Right next to Tara is the lady wearing beautiful hat made by Stephen Jones.
This little pill box hat charmed its way into my heart and I actually thought it is one of the sweetest little hats of the Royal Wedding.
Also one of my favorite hats in beautiful pearl grey color. The craftsmenship is remarkable and the handmade silk flowers are stunning.
On May 2nd, MET Gala marked the opening nignt of the magical tribute to Alexander McQueen: "Savage Beautiy" exhibition that is now opened for everybody to visit. I am planning to see it this very weekend and hear it is one of the most beautiful exhibition organized by the Costume Institute to date.
What was surprising is that this time many of the guests chose to actually dress their heads with jeweled pieces and even hats!Something you do not see very often here.
Nothing, of course, as glamorous as what we saw in the Royal Wedding but I happen to think that, somehow, the Royal Wedding had its influence.:-)
A while ago I have wrote a post "Head Games: Jeweled Hair.Volume 3." and it is so wonderful to see that the art of head dressing is coming back, making statements beyond fashionable "trendsetting" (I hate this word!)
I am wishing all of you great weekend and if you live in the country that celebrates Mother's Day, just like we celebrate it here in the US, I am wishing you beautiful Mother's Day too. :-)))
