A Day at the Races

Forget about the horses, it is the head wear on display at this year's Royal Ascot that is grabbing all the headlines. You could be forgiven for confusing the elite sporting event for a Mad Hatter's tea party. From the bizarre to the beautiful, quite literally anything is possible when it comes to choosing a hat for Ascot. Hats adorned with birds, giant insects, shoes, a replica of the Titanic and even an iPad are just a few of the crazier creations spotted. No one would have blinked an eyelid if Princess Beatrice had worn her infamous Philip Treacy fascinator here. Beatrice in fact sported one of my favourite looks on display - a retro wide-brimmed hat which screamed sophistication. Opera singer Katherine Jenkins also drew admiring glances in an oversized scarlet hat, which perfectly complimented her figure-hugging red dress.
