Phillip Treacy rules the royal wedding hats race

Perched precariously on foreheads and floating feet up into the air, the real show stoppers at the wedding are the ridiculously fabulous hats. Tiny hats, curly hats, an avalanche-waiting-to-happen hat. The star hat designer, Phillip Treacy, is the choice for Camilla Parker-Bowles and mother-of-the-bride Carol Middleton. Victoria Beckham opted for a Beetlejuice inspired hat, also by Treacy. Here’s images of the headwear seen at Westminister Abbey:
