Royal Ascot has arrived and it sure didn’t disappoint.  What other event would attract both the Royal family and Z-list celebs? When some people may focus on the horses and the actual races, many others look forward to seeing what crazy hat creations will be debuted this year and if any celebs will make the humiliating mistake of failing to meet the strict dress code requirements like Roxanne Pallett last year.

Ladies day is set to bring many weird and wonderful spectacles with women aiming to outdo each other in the fashion stakes.  Many people are already betting on what colour of hat the Queen will wear at the Ladies Day event that takes place on Thursday 16th, with yellow currently being the favourite.  Even though the events only began yesterday, there has already been an array of emm how shall I put this… interesting hats! For many people the bigger the hat the better.  One of Tuesday’s most memorable hats is the Louis Mariette head-piece worn by Anneka Tanaka-Svenska.  How these women don’t topple over I will never know.

Ladies day will probably see the celebs flocking to Ascot, each wanting to look the best.  So far, the Royal Ascot has been lacking in the usual celeb appearances.  Well some lesser known ‘celebs’ have been in attendance like Jezza Kyle and his wife, Danielle Lineker and Holly Valance.  We look forwards to when the A-listers begin to arrive and hat war truly commences.  Other people attending the Royal Ascot had attention grabbing iPad and iPhone hats, huge feathered creations and even a ginormous crown outline created with flowers.  Lady Gaga was surely an inspiration for many of these wacky designs!

The lovely Kate Middleton is yet to make an appearance at the Royal Ascot.  We eagerly await her arrival to see what she will be wearing next as she has been displaying an impressive array of hats and outfits over the past week at the many royal engagements she has been attending.  We will keep our fingers crossed that she will appear at Ladies Day.  Bring on the rest of the week and the rest of the hats!  Show us what you’ve got ladies!!!
