Zara Phillips' Purple Wingnut Hat And Other Ridiculous Headgear

Weddings, music festivals, racecourses and hen-nights are four very different things that are ingrained in our sociological make-up, but with one very important aspect in common. They’re all a brilliant excuse to wear a ridiculous hat.

Weddings, music festivals, racecourses and hen-nights are four very different things that are ingrained in our sociological make-up, but with one very important aspect in common. They’re all a brilliant excuse to wear a hat.

In Britain, whether we would like to admit it or not we love to wear hats, in fact the only thing that we actually love more than just wearing a hat is being able to wear eye-catching, attention grabbing hats. Don’t believe me? Take a look around you when you’re at a festival this summer. Between the drink and music you won’t remember, get a good panoramic view of the crowds. Eighty five percent of the pop going mass will be wearing a hat of some description, ranging from casual beanies to an ‘Oh-Em-Gee-it’s-a-rhino-on-his-head,’ style hats that obscure the view of anyone within three miles.

Princess Beatrice’s awesomely ridiculous hat looked like a glorious toilet drawn by Walt Disney.

There just isn’t anything quite as good as the woozy feel good brought on by wearing something ridiculous on our heads. And any old excuse is a good excuse. Look at the Royal Wedding, a fantastic day that united a nation but what were the two things everyone was talking about afterwards? Not Kate and Will, oh no, they were talking about Pippa’s derrière and yep, you guessed it, Princess Beatrice’s awesomely ridiculous hat.

A hat that managed to look like a glorious toilet drawn by Walt Disney and yet still be worn with a reservoir of pride. The thing went global and sure, there was ridicule but we all really know that this was just a flimsy mask of jealousy because we didn’t get our own mental head-warmer...
