Queen Philippe and Queen Mathilde continued their marathon trip to China today in the city of Suzhou where the Queen spent time at a centre for children with disabilities. She looked a vision in her pale pink mottled dress topped with a new headpiece made to match.
The headpiece consists of pale pink straw petals rimmed finished with rims of brighter pink stitching- the petals are gathered together to create a large, stylised flower. Described by the designer as a “Hibiscus and Chinese rose coloured hat in banana fibres,” it is a modern and innovative headpiece that works beautifully with this particular dress.
My favourite images today involve a curious little girl who just could not resist reaching out to feel Mathilde’s hat. I’m sure many of us can relate!
Designer: Fabienne Delvigne. It is the ‘Aramana’ design
Previously Worn: This headpiece is new
What do you think of this new floral headpiece? Can you imagine it with something other than this dress?
