I am modelling a hat by Philip Treacy this weekend! He has designed hats for Alexander McQueen’s white Haute Couture collection at Givenchy in Paris, for Karl Lagerfeld at Chanel and for Valentino, Ralph Lauren and Donna Karan. Famous people who have worn his creations include Victoria Beckham, Kate Middleton, Sarah Jessica-Parker, Emma Watson and quite recently Princess Beatrice of York, who wore one to the Royal Wedding this year. In fact, 36 people wore one of his hats to the wedding. And this weekend, I join the list 🙂 The event is a Royal Tea in aid of ChildLine and Yokhuselo Haven for abused women. ChildLine is a free 24 hour counselling service for children and young people up to the age of 18. It deals with any issues which cause distress for children and young people, including child abuse, bullying, divorce, pregnancy and substance abuse. Children phone in and receive counselling. Counsellors listen and try and help the best way they can. Yokhuselo Haven is a haven for abused women. It aims to provide a shelter for women who are victims of domestic violence. The Royal Tea is a really fantastic initiative to raise money for these charities. The hat has to be auctioned off. I’m going to be very careful with it – the hat Beatrice wore to Prince William and Kate Middleton’s wedding was sold for 81 000 pounds!

ooooh I am afraid to say this for I am sure that I will get lynched, but I will say it anyway…
I would not wear one of those hats if I was paid to do it……
now they are called something like agitators, or indicators or something like that I cannot remember the name but it will come to me soon I think…..got it..facinator
Sorry Tamika but they do look very strange. I would love them as ornaments in my garden but definitely not on my head..oh dear no…
you enjoy yourself my dear wearing these creations, but just don’t ask me to do it..never in a million years.
I don’t like the glove hat. It kind of gives me the creeps…but I love Sarah Jessica Parkers hat! and the pretty black one.
I always think that silver or gold go well with navy blue…but those are wow colors! I am sure that whatever you wear you will look great! Best wishes!!!
Thank you!! and I agree about the glove!! haha
