All of the most amazing hats from Royal Ascot

16 June 2022

Royal Ascot is here in all its glory – and while jockey are battling on the track, racegoers are also competing in the annual competition to lead the style stakes.

Today is Ladies Day, and a host of celebrities, fashionistas, and people in search of fun have turned out to enjoy the sunshine and millinery parade.

But whose hat is the biggest, most beautiful or just downright most audacious this year?

Hatmaker Tracy Rose dazzles in a daffodil-yellow beacon. Not dissimilar to a bishop’s mitre, but with vibrant flowers, an oversized shape and flamed top, her hat is in equal measures stunning and startling.

Mum’s the word for Robert Rinder as he rocks up, top hat and all, with his mother Angela Cohen, whose white hat with feathery detailing is matched with pearls. TV personality and barrister Rinder is obviously the Judge – but we’d say it’s a fabulous look.

Baby pink feathers were a recipe for success for this racegoer (Adam Davey/PA)

This racegoer looks stunning in a baby pink gown and feathery hat that is both Old Hollywood and so Ascot. Her dramatic nails and bracelet tie the look together for a thoroughly modern race day vibe.

Victoria Grant goes full Mad Hatter with this lime green and pink look (Adam Davy/PA)

Director Tim Burton would be a fan of this one as hat-maker Victoria Grant sports a look reminiscent of the director’s Alice In Wonderland. And the net draped down the front of the hat is oh so dramatic.

This racegoer went for a turquoise waterfall (Aaron Chown/PA)

Netting, butterflies and cascading layers bring total melodrama and glamour to this racegoer’s headwear as she contrasts her vibrant hat with a white number.
