Bin Laden Dead? Obama Birth Certificate? Donald Trump Trumped? Forget It: The Royal Wedding is Where It’s At

The biggest atrocity in headlines today is not Donald’s running mouth or President Obama’s birth certificate

(page 3 of 3)

I think all of the fun-making is because we really don’t understand the hat. But Phillip Treacy — the designer of that hat and many others worn at the wedding (including Victoria Beckham’s, which is not nearly as strange-looking) — doesn’t really offer any help for those struggling to figure it out. “My inspiration was beauty and elegance in a 21st-century royal wedding,” Treacy told “I thought they looked gorgeous and beautiful. But no one is crying if anyone didn’t.”

He continues: “It’s about making you feel a million dollars. So you’ve got something beautiful on your head and the head is the most important part of the body to embellish, because it’s what you meet. When you’re wearing something on your head, you feel beautiful.”

Riiiight. If you’re thinking of getting your own Treacy creation, I’ve got some bad news: there are no stockists in the Hudson Valley, The good news? They’re available in select Saks stores, Neiman Marcus locations, and Samuel’s Hats in Manhattan, in addition to a few other locations. There are also a couple available on eBay for around $150.

Finally, what I really, really want to know is: how the heck did Beatrice attach that thing to her head?
