Darcey Bussell – Ballet Day

Today is Ballet Day….and so it seems fitting that I share a post on Darcey!

Darcey was awarded an OBE in 1995 & wore this large black upturned hat to obtain her award.  There is a wide satin band around the edge of this halo hat, accentuating the size of the brim.

I think she looks gorgeous in this hat….and yet sadly there are so few images of Darcey wearing hats.  I definitely think she should wear more….as she looks relaxed & happy in this dramatic piece.

She is becoming a Dame this year too….congratulations!
