The Princess of Wales, Catherine (Kate Middleton), single-handedly made hats and fascinators famous once again after her wedding in April 2011. Check out all the hats, headbands and fascinators Catherine has worn since 2011. Kate Middleton was crowned Headwear Association’s ‘Hat Person of the Year‘ in 2012 with a staggering 91 per cent of total votes.
Since her engagement in November 2010, the Duchess’s impact on the millinery industry has been enormous. She has raised the profile, not only of established names like Philip Treacy and Sylvia Fletcher of Lock & Co, but also little-known designers such as Rose Cory and Vivien Sheriff. And though the engagements for which she chooses to wear hats are not unusual – church services, weddings and Royal Ascot – her sartorial influence has inspired many people to sport formal headwear for all manner of special occasions.
