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:
