Ascot Gavotte

The movie version of My Fair Lady got it all wrong. Part of the delight of Ascot is not the dramatic contrast of white and black, but the marvellous blaze of color as captured in these wonderful hats (thanks to the BBC for these great photos).

Then there’s the kind of titfer that Heather and Jessica over at Go Fug Yourself would have a field day with.
Men, for the most part, however well connected tend to look a little dare I say soppy? in formal headwear. And, in my humble opinion, no-one, but no-one, looks better in a hat than HM the Queen. Unless maybe Helen Mirren.
