The Royal Ascot begins today, complete with princesses, princes, a queen, and everything in between decked out in their finest fascinators and top hats. The highlight of the Ascot Racecourse's year is the royal event, which celebrates its 300th anniversary this year, since it was founded in 1711 by Queen Anne. Despite the outlandish hats, the Ascot is known for its strict dress code, and several years ago, it made headlines when fake tanners were banned. See the extravagant and the elegant toppers now, including Princess Beatrice in a much more toned-down fascinator compared to her famed royal wedding stunner. And I can't wait to see the fascinators on "Ladies' Day" Thursday!
