Hillberg & Berk at the Royal Ascot June 23 2014
The Royal Ascot: oversized hats, shining thoroughbreds, socialites, and celebrities. Few other events are as exciting as this most well-known of horse races. In both reality and fiction (we are thinking Audrey Hepburn in My Fair Lady), the Royal Ascot is a hub of gorgeous horses and refined fashion, and unsurprisingly it is the latter that usually takes center stage.
This year, Hillberg & Berk sparkled at the Ascot fashion scene. There is no overstating just how ecstatic we were when we heard that Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II, decided to show off her one-of-a-kind Hillberg & Berk brooch again, and not at just any of her many social engagements, but at the Royal Ascot itself. Glamorous in hot pink, Her Majesty paired her brooch with a stunning triple string of pearls and a fab hat. We love everything about her look, especially being part of it.
