FAKE A BOW
Now we know why they call it a ‘fascinator’: the royal transfixes millions of wedding watchers with her sculptural, bow-topped Philip Treacy adornment paired with a Valentino Haute Couture dress and coat.
Leaving no question that she’s a true English Rose, Sarah Ferguson and Prince Andrew’s elder daughter attracts a flight of butterflies while heading to another royal wedding – this time that of her cousin Peter Philips in 2008.
A nest of feathers is all that Beatrice needs to make a statement while heading to witness a 2006 formal knighting by the Queen during the annual Garter Service at St. George’s Chapel.
KICK SOME ASCOT
For the annual horse races in 2008, the princess follows English tradition by selecting an outrageous hat: a towering white variety adorned with a single oversized bloom.
Teetering over her forehead, Beatrice’s circular hat balances its fashion-forward geometry with a spray of complementary feathers and frills at the 2010 Ascot races.
It’s a bird, it’s a plane…nope, it’s just another outrageously plumed fascinator worn by the princess during an annual parade celebrating the Queen’s birthday in 2010.
Returning to her favorite hat designer yet again, Beatrice selects a neutral Philip Treacy look that’s anything but tame for 2011 Easter services at St. George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle.
COMING UP ROSES
It’s another day at the races as the royal attends Ascot in 2009 with her head topped with a perfectly framed floral still-life.
A safety net it’s not! Beatrice peeks out from behind a bold, netted nimbus, at Ascot Ladies’ Day in 2010.
BLACK & HEIGHT
Opposites attract for another 2008 outing to Ascot, as the princess’s chapeau balances a sleek white oblong with inches of wild black feathers towering above.
