London's Daily Mail seems to be first on the spot with a fashion hat report: the pregnant Victoria Beckham, with soccer star husband David, arrived in her own dress design and a Phillip Treacy hat while Mr. Beckham was wearing Ralph Lauren. BBC image
While Paisley Dodds, AP’s chief of bureau in London, readied a story specifically on hats of the day, the wire service offered this preview:
Floppy, feathered, flouncy and expensive — hats were in full force Friday with guests lining up outside of Westminister Abbey for Prince William and Kate Middleton’s wedding. Some looked like dinner plates. Others were so large they covered faces. One woman wore a bright red fascinator that resembled a flame licking her cheek.
And as for "THE DRESS," the BBC's best guess is the Alexander McQueen design house. Prince William will wear the uniform of colonel of the Irish Guards, a red uniform with gold braid. The two princes, William and Harry, arrived together in a "gorgeous maroon Rolls," texted Mackenzie Carpenter from the route.
