Fun Fashion Fact of the Day:
Elizabeth I loved hats so much that she made it mandatory for all fem ales over the age of 7 to wear a hat on Sundays and holidays. Anyone who refused to do so was stiffly fined.
Who doesn't love a good hat when the occasion is fitting (ahem the Kentucky Derby *see below*)? Personally, though, I would prefer crowns and tiaras if the absurd tyranny of the hat law was in place today.
