If you saw any part of the guests at the Royal Wedding of Will and Kate last week, I bet you noticed the hats. No not the bland hat that the Queen and other older women wore, but the startling hats of the younger, allegedly more stylish female crowd.
Here is a link to one of the pages on the Internet that show some of the hats. Pay particular attention to Princess Beatrice of York, Princess Eugenie of York, Victoria Beckham and Tara Palmer Tomkinson. Notice the style of wearing these hats over the forehead. Indeed these ridiculous hats seem to defy gravity. In fact, I’m certain that they they do defy gravity and only pins can hold them on to their owner’s heads.
Just another ridiculous high fashion thing, you may think. But to me, all I could think of was that they got the hat covering the forehead idea from Canadian serial killer, Russel Williams.
Here Russel Williams can be seen with his forehead completely covered by his hat. And his reason for doing this can be seen by this picture. He wants to hide all signs of a receding hairline. That is his reason for wearing his army hat so low on his forehead.
So why are young women of high British society copying a Canadian serial killer? I’ve racked my brains ever since I noticed this trend and all I can think of is it’s some pathetic attempt by these ladies to have street credibility. Oh how high society has fallen.
