Royal Wedding: The Hats

Well, I worked on a great tutorial for you all last night and it came together quite well...until the very end.  Then I made an error that goofed the whole thing up.  So, instead of a tutorial today I thought I'd take a look at the Royal Wedding, which is what everyone is interested in anyways, so why fight it?

I didn't start watching until just after the Abbey but I did catch the whole scene at Buckingham Palace and the big kiss that everyone was waiting for.

Of course, we all know by now, Kate's gown was by Sarah Burton at McQueen.  She looked absolutely beautiful (and amazingly at ease).

As did the rest of the wedding party and family.

But what caught my eye were all those crazy hats!  The best has to be these two:

Royal Wedding Crazy Hats
Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie
At first I misread the caption on this photo and thought this was the Deputy Prime Minister of Britain.  She's actually his wife.  Somehow it makes this ensemble a little less outrageous to me.

Royal Wedding Crazy Hats
Remember when Victoria Beckham wore a UFO style hat to another famous Kate's wedding (Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise) and got loads of backlash for it?  I think she was just ahead of her time...

 I'm not sure who designed the other hats but this blue piece is a Phillip Treacy creation.  I know we're all supposed to bow down to Phillip Treacy and his artistry but I really do think I'd go cross-eyed if I was wearing this.

 If you had attended the Royal Wedding what would you have worn?

Big and bold?

or sweet and demure?


Sweet and demure (and doesn't block everyone's view from behind you) :

Have a great weekend everyone.

Seeing the hats was a bonus to watching the wedding. They were so outrageous.
