The Royal “We” – Kate Middleton Models Engaging Millinery

December 2, 2010

I know, I know, Kate and Prince William got engaged two weeks ago (November 16, 2010) and I’m just now getting around to blogging about it.  You see, since then we’ve had an American holiday (Thanksgiving) and I went tent camping for the first time ever.  It was wonderful!  Despite being around 25 degrees Farenheit at night, it was better than dealing with all the bugs we get in this region.  Got to hear coyotes at night, screech owls, and saw armadillos and opossums. Yay!  I also appreciate hot running water and our washing machine more than ever.

Anyway, I’ve been thrilled to see how Miss Middleton has captured the attention of fashionistas around the world and, as every other milliner will agree, Kate acts as a beacon of hope for the millinery trade.  It’s one thing for a royal to wear hats – of course they wear hats, that’s what the British aristocracy does – but for one so young and cutting edge to wear hats is exceptional.  Plus, she wears them frequently and she takes risks with her hat selections.  Not limited to the standard fedoras, berets, and garden hats, Kate also wears sculptural and sometimes off-the-wall creations that are sure to inspire a sense of adventure in others wanting to imitate her style.

So, if we had a millinery award to give out, it would be to Kate Middleton for demonstrating that fashion forward outfits always have room for hats!

Here’s to you, Kate!

      I’m sure Ms. Middleton is wearing hats from several milliners. I know, however, that Jane Corbett has sold hats to Ms. Middleton in the past. Jane’s website is here:

      Good luck to you!

      Google “cocktail hats”. You’ll find some great sites. I haven’t found exact replicas of Kate’s hats, but I’m finding great stuff!!
