We're excited to bring you the best fashion finds, shopping stories, and style news from one of our favorite sites, Fashionista. Today, they're giving us a look at the crowns designed for the Queen's Diamond Jubilee.
Queen Elizabeth has long been considered a woman of many hats–and she’ll soon be adding many more to her burgeoning collection of (mainly pastel) headwear.
In honor of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, Harrods has tapped thirty-one of the biggest names in fashion–including Mulberry, Valentino, and Lanvin–to design revamped versions of the St. Edward’s Crown, the fancy-pants topper Elizabeth wore during her coronation way back in 1953.
And while there’s maybe a little too much crushed velvet for our taste, there’s also at least one fuzzy Jamiroquoi hat (Cavalli), one tiny Corgi (Paul Smith), two life size snakes (Bulgari and Boucheron), and what appears to be a crown made entirely of that caviar nail polish (Mulberry).
All the designs will be on display at Harrods in London starting today–but if, like us, you’ll be on the wrong side of the pond for all the jubilation, here are fourteen of the new crowns via Vogue UK. Cheers, m’dears.
