Of course everyone has been talking about the Royal Wedding and the first thing I did this morning was fast forward to the moment Kate Middleton stepped out of her hotel to reveal a glimpse of the DRESS! What can I say except it was classic, elegant and designed by Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen. It featured “traditional Carrickmacross craftsmanship,” a lace technique that dates back to the 1800s.
Something borrowed was from the Queen. Kate’s tiara is a 1936 Cartier halo. But I could not believe all those hats! I loved seeing everyone in hats! How come we don’t wear hats at weddings here in the US?
Of course Victoria Beckham’s hat was brilliant! I also loved Sophie, Countess of Wessex’s hat which looked lovely with her blond hair. Princess Eugenie and Princess Beatrice hats certainly made a statement but weren’t my favorite. My favorite was the mother of the bride – that blue color was so beautiful and it was created by Berkshire based milliner Jane Corbett. I want to go out and buy a hat now but where would I wear it??
