In preparations for Diamond Jubilee celebrations to commemorate Queen Elizabeth 2's 60 years on the British throne designers have been asked to create their version of the Queen's crown to be displayed in Harrods. This is just one of many many celebratory moments leading to grand finale of Royal Celebration that the entire world will be treated this Summer. In the words of Vogue: "It will be bigger than President Obama's 2011 state visit, bigger even than last years Royal Wedding." So, today, I thought, it would be a great idea to post all beautiful crowns displayed in Harrods. The top Crown has been designed by Lanvin.

Even though this year's MET Gala guests opted for significantly more head pieces and hats than ever before it was still not enough, in my opinion,considering that exhibition itself features the work of legendary Elsa Schiaparelli. Those who chose to wear head pieces and hats, treated us to a fabulous selection of very strong statement pieces (well, just what Elsa herself would prefer ).To me Karolina Kurkova in this impossible liquid gold gown paired with the gold turban is sublime vision. Both the gown and the hat was designed by Rachel Zoe .
Stunning all the way around!
Italian Vogue's Franca Sozzani chose this very light butterfly piece by Philip Treacy I suspect. No one does butterflies like Mr.Treacy. :-)
Giovanna Battaglia wore this Dolce&Gabbana ,very reminiscent of Frida Kahlo gown and beautiful floral crown.
Finally, Linda Fargo wearing Naeem Khan has absolutely stole my heart - such an amazing, very unique, high fashion approach to the evening full of gowns that no longer surprise...Wishing everyone great week, to me this entire week is all about New York and of course hats!
