The Royal Ascot

Some of you may already be aware, but the Royal Ascot begins tomorrow, June 19th.  As much as the Races are about the actual racing, they are about fashion and how amazing of a hat you can find (for the ladies at least, sorry gents, you are required to wear only top hats).

And beware, if you see these ladies coming up to you, you're doing something wrong.  (They've come to put a hat on your head or to cover too bare shoulders!)

This coming week should see the web (and frankly all other forms of media that like to feature images of the royal family) flooded with pictures of incredible hats!  Can't wait :)
