The Flamboyant Ladies’ Day Hats Steal the Show at the Royal Ascot Races (PHOTOS)
One of the most glamorous events held anywhere attracted an eye-catching assortment of attendees at the Ascot Races in Birmingham, England, yesterday, all donning their best headgear. ;
The women in the stands at the Ladies’ Day event at the track enjoy the once-a-year opportunity to wear some of the most outrageous fascinators, none of them really suitable for keeping one’s head warm or dry. The bright colors, immaculate details, and expert construction of the headpieces receive even more attention than the horses racing for the gold cup prize on the track.
We have spent the last two or so years admiring how perfectly Kate Middleton wears her fascinators to royal events, and now it’s time for everyone else to have their chance in the fashion spotlight. Click through for more pictures of some of the fabulous (and some questionable!) hats at the event.
