Kate Middleton’s Potato Chip Hat: How Do You Feel?

So, Kate Middleton wore a crazy hat to the wedding of her husband’s cousin Zara Phillips. A lot of people are saying it looks like a potato chip, but I think it also kind of looks like she got hit in the face by an errant pizza, and the pizza dough just kind of stuck there, just like that. A lovely snapshot of a moment in time. Her embroidered coat in this photo looks like a slightly browned tortilla, right after you take it out of the pan and fill it up with delicious burrito fillings. So basically, she is wearing carbs. She probably has them on the brain, poor thing. I bet she really misses them.

Anyway, to be fair, the hat looks slightly less atrocious from other angles:

There is also the possibility that she’s just trying to fit in with her new family and their eccentric, ovary hat wearing ways. How do you feel?

Sorry! This poll is now closed.

    I don’t think it’s terrible, but I don’t think it’s great either.

    I’m surprised to be in the minority here. I thought it looked lovely! The flower might be a bit big, but the rest I found very elegant. I also think the simple colour was a good choice.
    Really, am I the only one?

    It’s nice enough. Kind of big, but acceptable.

    In other, better hat-news, Princess Beatrice had an interesting blue thing on her head, and didn’t Princess Eugenie look lovely?

    You’re not the only one, Jenny. I think it’s gorgeous. It’s simultaneously dramatic and functional in that it keeps the sun off of her face. Given the right situation to wear it, I totally would.

    I think this hat is much more beautiful than some of the other hats she has worn in the past, like the little feather pouf thing she wore back in 2006 with the same outfit. It definitely matches better. There is one photo of her looking up at the camera while wearing the hat and it looks incredibly seductive with one part of her face obscured. In the UK they wear crazy hats all the time, this is definitely tame so I don’t know why its so “terrible”. I think it’s beautiful.
