Hat Trick: My Take on the Royal Wedding

Confession: I don't really care about royal weddings. My parents are British, and I still don't care. I didn't watch it. But then I saw some photos of the hats, and that shizz is hilarious.

How do they keep a straight face with those things on their heads? I'm baffled.

I like how the one on the left looks totally pissed, like she just realized it's not Crazy Hat Day during her high school's pep week.  And then the one on the right is whacked out on Xanax blissfully unaware.


Even the royal cars have little doo-dads on top.




Subtle.




I actually kind of love these two. These are clearly the fun aunts you go to the pub with after the wedding.




Hat trick. Also, kind of reminds me of the movie Heathers for some reason.  Now I'm scared.




I'm going to be honest here. Posh Beckham scares the bejeezus out of me. She always looks like she desperately needs a sandwich. She generally looks so pissed off and hungry that she might actually eat you if you're not careful.





It protects her brain from the aliens.





"You told me I looked awesome in this hat."
"I lied."

  2. I wouldn't be able to stand anything on my forehead like that (ie Posh's little round hat). What makes me laugh is these are the upper crust of society. Do they know people are laughing at them?? LOL!!

  3. Heathers - hilarious! A friend of mine posted the pick of Fergie's daughters and commented that they looked like Cinderella's ugly stepsisters.

  4. Apparently the two in the first picture are the Paris Hilton's of Britain.

    PS - my code word thing to post is ihidefat. WTF?

  5. Those are not hats. They are forehead cozies.

  6. I caught the end of the whole thing. Saw some lady wearing a replica of the church on her head and it just did me in. Love the ones you found.

  7. Good heavens.... It was hilarious to see those "princesses" exit their ride. My friend said they looked like the wicked step-sisters from Cinderella. LOL

  8. I am to understand Posh is pregnant?

  9. Heathers! Brilliant!
    Ironically Victoria is very pregnant... perhaps it's the baby you hear asking for a sandwich.

  10. LOL!!! I love this! I like hats, but the regular, normal looking ones. Not the hats that look like they're still alive or are about to poke your eye out!

  11. They all look like some play on a vajayjay to me ... it seems like the more obnoxious the better the person wearing it is supposed to look ... they mostly all look dumb!

  12. I love hats, but I don't get the point of wearing one stuck to your forehead. Especially if your "hairdo" is a pretty pathetic ponytail. Some of them were great, but.....erk.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Seriously absurd...most of them look like idiots. The lady in all electric blue with the canoe on her forehead... wth? They look so uncomfortable too.

  14. ::crying!!::

    OH! And BTW: Posh is NOT pregnant. Shhhhh!!!

  16. The redhead in the first picture is Princess Beatrice and your better respect, because I have a creepy girl love for her!

    ReplyDelete
  17. Haha- I like the comment above from anonymous about the hats looking like vajayjays- cuz that is exactly what I thought about the blue one lol

    my favorite has got to be that funky pointy one in the first and last picture- lmao!

  18. I would have been so pissed if I had a seat at the wedding and had to sit behind one of those hats and couldn't see anything!

    ReplyDelete
  19. This was hilarious! I didn't follow the wedding at all...so this was a nice little off the beaten path summary!

  20. The only ones that actually looked like HATS were the two "fun aunt" hats. I actually thought that purple and green outfit was really pretty.

    It's the squid thing that Fergie's daughter was wearing that freaked me out. The Queen's hat made sense! Seriously folks, if the Queen doesn't look like she's being attacked by an inhabitant of a zombie haberdashery, you shouldn't either!

    Oh, and I learned something! Those tiny hat things that aren't really hats are called "Fascinators".

  21. Has anyone photoshopped a picture of Lady Gaga into the wedding party yet? Because those hats? Look straight out of her closet.

    Also? I love the lady in head to toe royal blue. Hasn't anyone warned her about being too matchy-matchy? (Wait, do you think she dyed her pubes to match, too?)

    Thanks for the morning's entertainment!

  22. I noticed the hats when I turned on the news yesterday - I got a good laugh out of them!

    ReplyDelete
  23. This is what happens when you riffle through Lady Gaga's closet for your headgear.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Those are insane! Are they trying to steal attention from the bride with those things? Seriously, some of those hats could take someone's eye out!

    ReplyDelete
  25. My girls and I DID watch the wedding....more than anything we had fun watching the hats. My 7 year old just looked over my shoulder at the last photo on your post and commented, "Whoa, Mom, that was the one that freaked us out!".

    From the mouths of babes, eh?

    ReplyDelete
  26. I think the hats serve one of 2 purposes:
    1)"I didn't get to marry William or Charles, etc. but YOU WILL LOOK AT ME."
    2)"I am going to piss off the Queen and there is nothing. she. can. do."
    Specific comments:
    -The 1st photo is of (the original) Fergie's daughters and her revenge for being uninvited (I'll bet she "helped" pick the outfits)
    -The "Heathers" gals are the daughters of Diana's brother. Ain't no ugly in THAT family.

  27. Is it me or does the girl in blue look like Monica Lewinsky?

    ReplyDelete
  28. Oh great big belly laughs going on here! Thanks, I needed that.

    I think Victoria Beckham looks like she has a dog's dish stuck to her forehead.

  29. this cracked me up. Such an absurd contrast from a life of a special needs mom, lucky to have clean laundry at hand... great escape and fun look at the craziness.. . ah the simple things.

    ReplyDelete
  30. great post! I read some fashion editorial and they talked about how awesome all these hats were and they used pretty much the same pictures you did. I thought maybe it was just me that thought these things were crazy. Good to know others feel the same way!

    ReplyDelete
  31. awesome post.
    I became sort of fascinated by the headgear myself... not all in an "ooh I love those hats" but in a "some are pretty, some are ugly and most are pretty ugly" sort of way

    ReplyDelete
  32. Nice.. I blogged about that too. :)
