Kate Middleton is having an extraordinary week in headgear. She donned a cream Lock & Co. fascinator for a garden party Tuesday and wore a scarlet creation by the same designer Monday at the Order of the Garter Service, but her latest millinery creation might be our favorite yet.
The Duchess of Cambridge brought her trademark chic style and slayed the hat game at her first-ever Royal Ascot Wednesday. The posh annual horse race is known for attendees' over-the-top headpieces and beautiful dresses, and the stunning royal fit right in with a cream long-sleeve lace Dolce and Gabbana midi-length dress and an off-white fascinator adorned with a large flower.
The woven feather-decorated fascinator, a Jane Taylor design, was the perfect accessory to the 34-year-old's lacy number. Kate paired the elegant ensemble with pearl drop earrings, nude pumps, and a sleek chignon as she accompanied Prince William, Queen Elizabeth, and a number of other royals to the event.
Another notable accessory, which stood out from her monochromatic ensemble: a purple name tag that Kate wore on her chest. The handwritten lettering read: "HRH The Duchess of Cambridge."
