The 2013 Royal Ascot kicked off this week, and famous royals like Queen Elizabeth II, Prince Charles, Princess Beatrice, and Princess Eugenie have been rockin' their fancy toppers as part of the long-standing tradition. Royals are joined by plenty of extravagantly dressed revelers to watch Europe's famous event, which has been the highlight of the Ascot Racecourse's year since it was founded in 1711 by Queen Anne.
But while the sky's the limit when it comes to fabulous fascinators, the Ascot is known for its strict dress code. Women must wear a day dress of acceptable length with a hat or fascinator, and they can't show off their stomachs or shoulders. Men are required to wear black or gray morning dress with a top hat. Another tradition of the Royal Ascot is the procession, which involves the queen and other royals riding in to the racecourse every day in horse-drawn carriages. See royals from the Queen Mother to Princess Diana attend the Royal Ascot over the years, including pictures from this year's festivities.
Kim Kardashian gave birth to a baby girl on Saturday, but just five days before delivering her first child, she was lounging poolside. Kim showed off her pregnant stomach in a skimpy bikini while hanging out at a spa in LA with friends, including Robin Antin and makeup artist Joyce Bonelli. The ladies snacked on a fruit and cheese plate during their three-and-a-half-hour stay, and while Robin and Joyce drank cocktails, Kim sipped on pink lemonade. The sunny afternoon wasn't the first time Kim flaunted her baby bump in a bikini during her pregnancy, since we also saw her in a two-piece during her family getaway to Greece back in April.
Kim and her boyfriend, Kanye West, may have welcomed their daughter a little earlier than her expected July arrival, but Kim seems to be enjoying motherhood already. She sent an email to Ryan Seacrest proclaiming that "It's so crazy!" and her sister Khloé shared that both "mommy and baby are healthy & resting." Kim has yet to reveal the baby's name, though sources say that she and Kanye are close to picking a moniker for their little one.
