Love this whirligig of a fascinator on Princess Alexandra's dark hair -- whimsical and silly enough to be interesting, but not so crazy that it's distracting.
But ... is that her hair gathered in the back, or is it -- shudder -- some sort of bow? Thoughts?

Our first new princess of the day! This is Princess Alexandra of Luxembourg, the only daughter of Grand Duke Henri and Grand Duchess Maria Teresa.
Unfortunately, her first hattery appearance disappoints me quite a bit -- there's something dated about this black hat, especially on a princess who is only 19! If you can't wear a crazy fascinator when you're 19, when can you? Also, it blocks the view of her pretty face a little, so that she has to tilt waaay back so that we can see her:
... much better! Except -- now, all I'm focusing on is the enormous bow she's placed right across her boobs, and the general mustard-iness of the ensemble. Oh, dear.
