Today was day three of the Royal Ascot, and as with all things British, that means a bunch of hats for us to point at, laugh at, and fall in love with.

But in all of our hat-watching days, never have we seen something quite as magnificent as this. This hat is a replica of a plate full of breakfast food — kindly note the eggs, the ham…the beans.

What’s particularly lovely about this piece of headwear, though, is that the woman sporting it seems to be doing so without so much as a hint of irony. Granted, we only have this one picture to work with, but there’s nothing in her eyes that says, “I’m in on the joke.” She looks, actually, almost sultry. Well played, breakfast head lady. Well played.
