Princess Beatrice's wedding hat to be auctioned
Assoc. Press ^ | 05/12/2011 | CAROLINE MORROW

Posted on 05/12/2011 8:38:41 AM PDT by Responsibility2nd

LONDON – The eye-popping hat worn by Princess Beatrice at Britain's royal wedding is to be auctioned to raise money for charity, Buckingham Palace said Thursday.

The famous creation — which some said looked like antlers_ will be sold on eBay with the proceeds to go to the charities UNICEF and Children in Crisis.

The hat was the handiwork of Britain's leading milliner, Philip Treacy, who designed many of the ladies' hats worn at the April 29 nuptials of Prince William and Kate Middleton, now known as the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

The eBay ad copy:

"Capture the 'royal style' in this suave paper hat guaranteed to amaze strangers and send rivals into fits of jealous rage. Mailed flat; does not include half of a woman's head as depicted. Hand-constructed and ready to flaunt. Comes with a generous length of ribbon which attaches fabulousness to head as pictured. Waggles a bit when you strut."

Guy has a good sense of humor.

frankly, I don’t blame her,. if someone inflicted a hat like that on me, I’d be looking to get rid of it, too.

Call me old fashion, but I don't know when this eye makeup to make yourself look like a raccoon became so popular.

I haven't seen it on one woman that I thought looked attractive. Unfortunately I must be in a minority because I see more and more of it.

You’re right. I couldn’t see any attractiveness. The first thing she needs to do is remove a lot of her makeup. She has attractive parents so I’m not surprised that she could be attractive. She doesn’t have good taste, though.

She might be but I can't get past the "run-away-as-fast-as-you-can" crazy eyes.

No more tin foil needed. Will block unwanted signals while receiving those you need. For the contemporary active conspiracy addict that must stay in touch by satellite. Receiver controller in matching hand bag. Optional solar cell charger available. Rush to order now supply limited. Order before the government bands them and leaves you unprotected and out of touch.

If:

Her hair is blue, red or orange.
She wears a nose-ring.
She wears shorts and high heels.
She wears more than two rings.
She’s a white woman with black eye make-up.
or,
She’s a black woman with white eye make-up.

She’s crazy!

And I have it from a good source the wedding hat is an enlarged replica of an entirely different part of her anatomy....
