Ever since the royal wedding, I’ve been seeing hats, fascinators, and the like, everywhere. Perhaps it’s the power of suggestion, but headwear seems to be having a moment, despite Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie’s unfortunate adornments on the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s big day, which soured me on the whole Philip Treacy thing. But shortly after the royal wedding, I experienced Shourouk’s amazing headpieces and rethought my position — especially when I found out that Michelle Obama tapped Shourouk for a topper proposal. Then she told me about her friend the designer Elisa Palomino, who places gorgeous and enormous flowers and such on her models’ heads, and rocks a flower in her own hair like nobody’s business. And not long after my Shourouk encounter, I spied this Telegraph slideshow featuring hats, hats, hats. And there’s more! My friend the designer and blogger Grace Sun wore this fantastic specimen recently to a wedding shower. And then here’s a recent shot of Princess Beatrice at the Royal Derby; this time I actually like her fascinator (or what have you). It’s hat madness! Maybe I’ll finally get up the moxie to wear the bowler hat that’s been sitting unworn in my closet for a year. I bought it because I love the idea of a chic tribute to Charlie Chaplin, but when I put it on I feel a bit self-conscious. It takes a bit of gumption to wear head ornamentation, for some people anyway, don’t you think? Others seem to be natural born hat-wearers, as if it’s in their DNA or they’ve somehow acquired the hat-wearing attitude. Which are you? Tell us in the comments!
