I have been a fan of Philip Treacy’s for a while now though I haven’t posted about his work. Considering today was the royal wedding, it is a great opportunity to. First of all, I adore these pieces and the whole general idea of fascinators. Paired with a demure dress, they’re like little pieces of modern art to wear. The wedding gown by Sarah Burton was a disappointment! Even though it was modeled after Grace Kelly’s fantastic gown, it can’t match up to the greatness. I felt like it was extremely meager and could’ve been done up way more. If McQueen was still alive, he would add some “oomph” and pizzaz to spice it up! Though Kate may be simple, this royal wedding was a once in a lifetime kind of thing.
This camel colored piece that Princess Beatrice is wearing was my favorite at the royal wedding.
As Victoria Bekham tried so hard to keep her fierce, model-esque facial expression intact, she looked totally glam in this Philip Tracy number next to a quite dapper David Bekham.
This socialite is wearing a fantastic blue fascinator.
Though not at the royal wedding, this Philip Treacy piece SJP is donning is out of this world.
This piece is very sculptural and reminds me of Alexander McQueen fall ’09 RTW.
Personally, even though they’re not orthodox here, if I could get my hands on a Philip Treacy fascinator I’d don it to a party in the U.S. in a heartbeat, would you?
