Oh! The Hats! At The Royal Wedding

The Royal Wedding of Prince William & Catherine Middleton wouldn't be complete without the... HATS!  The Kentucky Derby is probably is as close as we can get here in the U.S. 

No doubt, we still have some catching up to do with the Britts!  These hats are amazing in shapes, design, and the details, my oh my the details.  Most of the hats you see worn at the wedding today (and some VIP guests) are created by Mr. Philip Treacy, an Irish Milliner. 

Flip through below and view these classy hats worn at the Royal Wedding.

I just love his hats.  The architectural designs of his work just can't be beat.  Who knew that hats can be so three dimensional?

Can you imagine the amount of time is put into each of these amazing pieces of art? Yes, they are pricey but my goodness a lot of work was put into each one.  From the designing to the modeling and then the production.

Definitely a show stopper.
