Class of '95 (Yeah, That Old!)

There is so much to catch up on from the last time I posted that I don't know where to begin. 

Last night Lindz and I took a trip across the river to NYC (it's a whopping 10 miles away from my apartment) to see our childhood friend and carpool buddy Leslie Kritzer perform at Joe's Pub.  She wrote an autobiographical cabaret show about our senior year of high school called "Beautiful Disaster."  To steal a line from Bethenny, "We laughed, we cried, it was better than Cats!"  I am so lucky to be able to call this amazing, talented, gorgeous woman my friend for 30 years.  That's right... 30 YEARS!  Here's the embarrassing proof:

Me, Lindz, and Leslie walking to school...hello 80's!

Now on to the Royal Wedding because I have been dying to discuss.  I'm sure you're all tired of hearing about how gorgeous Kate's dress was (it REALLY was) and how handsome Prince William looked (just like Prince Charming), and what a HOT GINGE Prince Harry is (yummm-o), but let's talk about the real stars of the event...HATS!  Milliner to the stars, Philip Treacy, must not have slept from the time the engagement was announced until the morning of the nuptials.  36 of his creations were seen on guests, from Camilla to Victoria Beckham.  So many hats in every shape and size.  Here are some of the highlights:

David & Victoria Beckham: Spectacular as always!  I especially love her custom Christian Louboutin Daffodil pumps which match her dress from her own A/W 2011 collection.  David opted to carry his top hat so as not to mess his perfect coif...and it was purrrrfect :)
Carol Middleton: I didn't love the coatdress which looked off the rack, and the color was a total snoozefest.  BUT the hat was perfection!

Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall: What a loooong way she's come!

And of course the ULTIMATE topper...
Kate (something borrowed) Catier tiara.  GORGE!!!

Of course they can't all be winners:
Princesses Beatrice & Eugenie: UGH! What in the world were they thinking putting these monstrosities on their heads?  At least Bea's dress was lovely; Eugenie looked like a stuffed peacock.

Tara Palmer Tomkinson (London socialite): This woman had her nose rebuilt for the occasion after one too many sniffs but with not such success, so why in the world would she wear a hat that points directly at her crooked schnoz?

Zara Philips: Do you get HBO with that thing?
