Royal Wedding Hat Designer Interview: Prime Minister's Wife 'Appalling' For Not Wearing Hat!

Mon, May 2, 2011 1:58pm EDT by 8 Comments

Samantha Cameron opted to wear a jeweled clasp instead of the required ‘fascinator.’ Do you think it was a royal snub?

It was all about the hats on April 29 but Samantha Cameron, Prime Minister David Cameron‘s wife, chose to defy tradition. Even though no dress code was enforced for female guests, the Daily Mail reports that it was understood that women would “wear a hat for the wedding service.” HollywoodLife.com spoke with Philip Treacy, the man behind Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie‘s fashionable creations, and he called Samantha’s decision incredibly offensive.

“I thought it was appalling, because the prime minister’s wife is a lovely woman and I’ve met her and she’s charming,” Philip revealed at the screening of L’Amour Fou hosted by Vera Wang. “But however it was a Royal Wedding and the prime minister’s wife represents Britain and there’s nothing more English than a hat. So to go to a Royal Wedding without a hat was a mistake!”

Men were required to wear either a military uniform, morning coat or lounge suit. Samantha did receive praise for her turquoise Burberry dress and orange stole.

But did she make the biggest faux pas of the 21st Century?

You recognize therefore significantly in the case of this subject, made me in my opinion consider it from a lot of varied angles. Its like men and women aren’t involved until it’s one thing to do with Woman gaga! Your personal stuffs great. All the time maintain it up!

Regardless of the quality of some of the toppers, wearing a hat was part of the official dress code, and was on the invitation. It’s expected for any wedding, let alone a royal one.

I believe that I read that women’s dress code was not on the invitation, unlike the men’s. Though I know that a hat is an unwritten standard at these kinds of things.

To be honest, I thought the hat designs of the two Princesses were far more offensive than a bare head. It was a royal wedding, not a zoo, and they turned up looking like a peacock and a moose! I’d prefer the PM’s wife’s jewelled clasp to that any day!

I totally agree with you. Better no hat at all than some of those awful creations that only make their wearers look like total idiots.

A hat designer who makes ugly hats said it was appalling she didn’t wear one. Maybe she was the only one with taste!

So, this man has made an obscene amount of money making many women look like retards. There isn’t enough money in the world to make me wear one of his hats and prance around in public looking like a joke.
