Festival of silly hats

Posted June 25, 2008

Ladies' Day at the Royal Ascot race meeting apparently is a big deal in the U.K.  According to the New York Times:

The Royal Ascot meeting is undoubtedly one of the racing and social highlights of the British summer. The first recorded reference to Ladies Day, a day the focus switches from racing to fashion, was in 1823.

It's also a big showcase for silly hats.  Here's a The New York Times slideshow of some of the best hats.
