Obsessed: English Weddings Hats

So I can not lie, I honestly couldn’t care less about the royal wedding.  I know, I know…I get that it’s a huge deal for England and sure, I’m happy for William and Kate but it was just a little too much for me.  However, I DVR’d a bit of the ceremony (I figured hey, it’s probably a once in a lifetime opportunity to watch, right?) and I can’t stop obsessing over the amazing unique hats that everyone was wearing.  I mean WHAT a fantastic concept.  Weddings don’t happen super often so why not take the opportunity to dress up and express yourself via “head art”? 

After looking through tons of photos, I’ve selected my top 6 choices; some are argued to be the fashion mistakes of the event but I don’t care!  Most of the hats were created by England’s resident hat guru, Philip Treacy.  Apparently Philip has been designing hats for celebs and royals alike for years; and, according to InStyle.com, the Irish-born designer has even designed hats for American stars such as Lady Gaga, Demi Moore and Sarah Jessica Parker– love it.  Here are my favorite hats from the big deal (and yes, I don’t care what you, Gawker or anyone else says, I looooooove Princess Beatrice’s Lady Gaga hat- it is EVERYTHING.)  Which were your favorites?
