The Many Magnificent Hats Of The 2013 Royal Ascot

The Royal Ascot is a prestigious hat fashion show that takes place each year in the charming town of Zanydanyshire, England. Only the most eccentric of millionaires are invited to participate, and lords and ladies are known to spend all year painstakingly hot-gluing their hats from scratch.
