Royal Ascot has just wrapped for the year, and you know what that means—it’s time for our annual celebration of attending hats beautiful and bonkers, sublime and silly.
Women’s Wear Daily reported in their fashion recap from the event that “toppers ranged from small, feathery fascinators to oversized statement millinery. Some hats were adorned with traditional elements such as florals and feathers, while others had whimsical touches including skulls, seahorses or spaghetti.”
Not a visible part or a bald spot in the place!
Here are some nice roses.
This woman’s hat looks like a Schiaparelli octopus.
The Queen of course wore a bright, bright, bright color with some traditional floral detailing.
This hat actually has a purpose for its eccentric design—promoting the RAF Benevolent Fund.
We probably cannot say the same for the spaghetti.
Or the seashell.
Or the butterflies.
Or whatever the hell this is.
God bless this ridiculous tradition and its ridiculous dress code; long may it entertain us.
