All The Crazy Hats At Britain’s Royal Ascot

By: Julie Gerstein / June 23, 2012

The British — they have a reputation for being so refined and proper. But look, these people totally wild out. Take the Royal Ascot — a five-day celebration of British royalty and horseracing. The Queen and a bunch of members of the royal family show up, and there’s lots of white gloves and fancy dresses. But the biggest star of the day? The wackadoodle hats that women wear to the festivities — particularly on Ladies’ Day. We’ve culled a selection of some of the crazier headwear — including a woman wearing a soccer field as a hat, really — for your perusal. Enjoy!
