Kate Middleton: Hat Designer!

Don’t think just because she’s the Duchess of Cambridge and future queen of England Kate Middleton doesn’t know how to be a milliner. MailOnline reports that Kate had herself quite a bit of say in the now famous Pringles chipesque hat she wore to Zara Phillips’s wedding.

The hat was created by British milliner Gina Foster with a little stylistic advice from Kate the Great. Kate knew she need a hat to match the Day Birger et Mikkelsen coat she wanted to wear. The hat she decided on was the “Launceston Place coulis” design from Gina Foster’s Kensington W8 spring/summer collection. The hat, however, only came in navy, so Kate requested it in a neutral straw color. And best of all? It was her idea to add the flower on the left side of the hat, which, if I do say so myself, is actually the prettiest part.

And honestly, who cares if Kate has been seen wearing the same outfit twice. It looks so good on her that I could care less. Well, Kelly Osbourne really seemed to mind, but that’s about it. The hat itself is interesting. It totally looks like a potato chip, but like a classy one that has a flower.
