My Fantasy of Chinoiserie at Ascot


As a devoted hat lover, this is the week every year I get my fix watching all the amazing hats at Ascot. It occurred to me to research what hats and attire one could wear to go Chinoiserie at Ascot. Leave it to the brilliant milliner Philip Treacy and the incomparable Alexander McQueen, both Brits I might add, to come to the rescue!

A friend sent pix of the Royal Enclosures at Ascot and I posted a list of what the Queen "suggests" that you wear. Very funny!

Zowie!!! The clothes are fantastic but the theatrical delivery is a bit much for me...

I saw these pictures a month or so ago and loved them -- of course, it's all fantasy, but these are all incredibly fun! Also, is it just me or does the houndstooth outfit and overdone red lips remind you a bit of Lucille Ball in her I Love Lucy days?

Averill-Absolutely-someone even did a post showing Lucy and that photo. Chinoiserie Chic was feeling left out with all the Ascot hats, so I thought I'd have some fun!
