With every royal wedding comes a fresh batch of fancy hats and fascinators to admire, which the fashionable guests at Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank’s nuptials certainly delivered. Though some attendees went the chic and subdued route, others really went for it, opting for bold headpieces that totally caught our eye as they headed into St. George’s Chapel in Windsor to watch Eugenie and Jack tie the knot.
No matter which option the guests chose, one thing was for sure: no one was immune to the blustery winds that took a few unlucky hats captive as guests filed into the chapel.
Ahead, admire all the stylish toppers that managed to stay put for the cameras at this year’s second royal wedding, and then be sure to check out all the details about Eugenie’s stunning dress.
The Duchess of Cambridge paired her magenta Alexander McQueen dress with a matching fascinator that featured both netted and floral detailing.
Queen Elizabeth II
The queen wore a light blue hat with a prominent white flower in the front, much like the one she wore to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding. Oh, and get a look at those gold wisps jutting out the top — so chic, that Liz!
Rather than matching her headpiece to her dress like many other guests did, the eldest granddaughter of Queen Elizabeth II opted for a gray fascinator with metallic flowers and enough fake leaves to fill the floral department of a craft store.
The English model and actress certainly stood out from the crowd with her peacock-esque headpiece, which featured a bedazzled netted veil and elongated feather pieces on top.
The Duchess of York and mother of the bride wound up making quite the impression with her hat choice. As soon as she stepped out of the car at Windsor Castle, many compared the large bow on her green topper to the golden snitch from Harry Potter.
Pippa wore an intricate emerald green fascinator that perfectly matched her sleeved dress.
Cara said, “Dress code, who?” and showed up to Eugenie’s wedding in a badass Emporio Armani tuxedo, which she finished off with none other than a Nick Fouquet top hat.
The English model looked like she was strutting down the catwalk when she arrived in her Ralph & Russo Couture outfit. Naomi paired her caped dress with an equally as eye-catching headpiece, complete with rhinestone-adorned floral detailing to match the crystal stones woven into her dress.
Though the Duchess of Sussex kept things relatively subdued, simply opting for a navy Noel Stewart fascinator with layered tulle detailing to match her Givency ensemble, there’s no denying that she totally nailed the color coordination.
An English actress and the wife of Lord Frederick Windsor, Sophie chose a sizable hat with ample feathers and netted detailing on top to match her sea foam green outfit.
