Its that time of year again when half the nation are on the search for the perfect Ascot dress and hat ! It’s never easy, and why oh why is it that at every other time of year, the shops are full of gorgeous dresses – that is until you desperately need one?
Then I remembered something that happened a few years ago – when a girl turned up at On Your Head Be It the day before she was going to Royal Ascot, a last minute ticket had become available, and she had a limited budget.
She nipped into Primark on the way to the studio, and bought a white dress costing £22, many of our things had been sold or hired already, but as it was white it left more options open for finding a last minute hat or headpiece. After looking at all possibilities we found a gorgeous headpiece, made of spiralling feathers, in black – which then made it easy to team up with black shoes and handbag (already in her possession).
Imagine my surprise when watching Ascot highlights when the programme started with a slow motion shot of my client in her primark dress and her big spiralling feathers headpiece ! in fact they used that shot for the rest of the week to open the programme.
The moral of this tale is – you don’t need to spend lots of money on a dress to get noticed, but money spent on hiring or buying a gorgeous designer hat is money well spent because at Royal Ascot – its all about the HAT, and it should be all about the Crowning Glory.
