Yes, the fun and frippery of Ascot fashion is in full flow, but Ladies’ Day is where it’s at!

I love all the creativity that goes with it, all the different ideas, ingenuity and the colour.

I get so inspired by the pieces that we see in the paper and on the TV highlights, and I hope that you will also come on my little journey of Hatastic! picks.


I wanted to show you the finalists of the ‘Who Wants to be a Milli-naire’ competition, which is for established and non-established milliners who want to get ‘noticed’!


The finalists get to go to Ascot in their creations, and the winner is announced on Ladies’ Day! Look out for the two designs by the fabulous Jane Marcantonio who I featured last year after her success at Ascot.

I’d love to hear your opinions on the finalists and I’ll announce the winner as soon as I hear!
