Princess Beatrice's Hat Stands Out in a Sea of Fashionable Hats at the Royal Wedding

Posted on April 29, 2011

The royal wedding this morning was a showcase for the most amazing hats. Most of the women wore hats for the event: from large statement hats, such as the one by Philip Treacy worn by Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, to exotic headpieces, to teeny fascinator hats in a rainbow of colors. The disc shape was especially in vogue today. ITN put together this montage which gives a great look at all the hat styles that were on display today. We especially loved Victoria Beckham's Phillip Treacy hat -- it was just lovely.

Queen Elizabeth dressed in sunny yellow for the day and looked quite happy. Her hat was a bright yellow traditional shape with rose accents. It was created by her personal assistant Angela Kelly. The Queen's granddaughter Zara Phillips had a very chic, large, black, asymmetrical disc hat we quite liked.

But the winner for the most eye-catching hat goes to Princess Eugenie, who wore a demure blush coat dress by Valentino and topped it with a wild blush headpiece made by Philip Treacy. The hat was in an "O" shape with giant, stylized bows on top. She's so young and fearless -- and she just worked that jaw-dropping hat, clearly not giving a whit whether people liked it or not. It wasn't really what you would call pretty or chic, but it was bold and she gets style points for that. Princess Beatrice and her sister Princess Eugenie show up around the :50 mark -- you can't miss them. Princess Eugenie is wearing a most unflattering blue floral suit by Vivienne Westwood. She accessorized with a cobalt blue headpiece by Treacy which was embellished with feathers and flowers. Take a look:
