Princess Bea’s Bad Hat Does Good

By Tonya Garcia Comment

The auction of Princess Beatrice’s famous fascinator is complete, and a whopping $132,000 has been raised for UNICEF. This is a true lemons-to-lemonade story.

The hat has its own Facebook page and became an Internet meme that propped the hat on the heads of everyone, including heads of state.

The hat’s designer, the famous milliner Philip Treacy, has gotten ample attention for the hat, telling that he wasn’t told what to design, but was inspired by “beauty and elegance.”
