MOST DAPPER: PRINCE WILLIAM
THE TRADITIONS: LOVE 'EM!

KATE'S HAIR: A HIT!
What didn't readers love about the Duchess of Cambridge's wedding look?

The groom's royal cousin made quite the impression with her blush sculptural Philip Treacy hat. While fascinators are the signature look of royal affairs, 54% of readers "hated" the topper, and 32% admitted "it confuses me."
