Not entirely surprising that Westminter Abbey is filling up with a sea of pastels. Most of the guests attending the wedding of Kate Middleton and Prince William are playing safe, though there are soSme very dramatic hats, including pretty fascinators on the heads of Williams’s three Spencer cousins.
The fascinator question is fascinating. Vogue pronounced the fascinator vulgar and dead more than a year ago, and while some of the little feather confections are, indeed, vulgar and cheap. But created by milliners like Gina Foster, Nerida Fraiman and Piers Atkinson they can be spectacularly gorgeous.
Sam Cam – aka Samantha Cameron, wife of the PM – looks brilliant in a fitted and draped teal blue dress by Burberry, but bravely she has decided to go bare headed. She is, however, clutching a gorgeous (and very on-trend) orange shawl which she may drape around her head.
