The Unusual Feature Demi Moore and Kate Middleton’s Royal Ascot Hats Have in Common

The annual Royal Ascot is more than just a sport. The event is a medley of tradition, class, royalty, and fashion where some of the biggest names in the entertainment industry as well as powerful members of the royal family grace us with their gorgeous outfits and unmissable headpieces.

Since its establishment in 1711 by Queen Anne, the annual gathering has become a social marker on the British calendars, attracting visitors from all over the world.

As per usual, the event is a hot spot for celebrities and the industry’s who’s-who, all clad in posh outfits that must adhere to the dress code that is strictly mandated by the Queen.

Dress Code

Yes, the Royal Ascot is about horseraces but A-listers witness the show with their best outfits on. Apart from the expectedly beautiful ensembles, you are also likely to see outrageous and over-the-top hats, making everyone feel like they’re part of the royal family, who are never amiss when it comes to showing their style prowess.

As to what is your best bet when it comes to the event, royal dress expert and stylist Alex Longmore said staying elegant and chic far outweigh being fashionable and trendy.

Demi Moore wowed the crowd with her massive hat and chic green dress

While we saw some familiar faces at this year’s Royal Ascot, we were also introduced to some new ones, including American actress Demi Moore, who made her debut at the event this year.

Being a newcomer comes with added pressure to dress to impress, and in this case, the “Ghost” thespian certainly did not disappoint onlookers.

Donning a curve-hugging green outfit, accessorized with a black purse and matching sling-back heels, the 56-year-old looked like she was a regular attendee at the social gathering.

However, this event wasn’t just about the posh dresses and suits, it was also about the hats, which could make or break a look.

So with Demi, it was hard not to notice her black headwear with an elaborate pink floral detail attached on one side.

The hat’s size was a far cry to what Meghan Markle or Kate Middleton had previously worn in royal outings, but it certainly had the same flair as the Duchesses’ other hats.

Philip Treacy also designed Kate Middleton’s blue hat

This is because Demi’s intricate, unmissable hat was designed by Philip Treacy, the creative soul behind some of Kate and Meghan’s hats.

Speaking of the Duchesses, the mom of three also sported the milliner’s blue hat with a flower detail that perfectly matched her elegant Elie Saab dress during the first day of the Royal Ascot.

The former “Suits” actress, meanwhile, didn’t attend this year’s event, which, according to sources, was still on maternity leave, so she was probably with baby Archie Harrison at their residence, the Frogmore Cottage.

First Royal Event

Although her debut at the horse-racing show, this was Demi’s second time attending a royal event.

Her first, wherein she wore another Philip’s creation, was back in October at the wedding of Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank, an appearance which surprised the public.

It turns out, the actress is good friends with the Duchess of York and Prince Andrew, the 29-year-old’s parents. This might be a reason she got the coveted invite to the Royal Ascot.
