‘What The Hell Are You Wearing?’ Starring Beatrice And Eugenie’s Hats
Oh goodness. Remember when Princess Beatrice started waving to you from her chauffeured car wearing what looked like a toilet seat? Then she got out of the car and it was so much more than that?
The design was a Philip Treacy creation crafted to look like a Disney discard. No, not really, but that’s what it looked like.
Treacy later told the Observer that his royal client was unfairly bullied by fashion bloggers for wearing the hat. “She is only 22 and there was a little bit of bullying going on. I didn’t give a f*** about 140,000 bloggers. In the future, we’ll look back and think she looked wild,” he said.
Then there was her younger sister, Princess Eugenie, who looked equally as ridiculous in a Vivienne Westwood ensemble and a hat, also by Treacy.
To her credit, Bea’s Valentino outfit looked gorgeous. And the fallopian-tube-pretzen-toilet-seat thingie was auctioned off on eBay, raising over $125,000 for charity.
