Pearly King

Mr. Valentino proves that while it may be possible to wear more pearls at one go than the late Queen Mary, it is probably not aesthetically advisable to do so.


  1. Undoubtedly the recipient of many a pearl necklace during his short life.

  2. As expected, Thom beat me too the pearl necklace comment. But, yes. Pearls! necklaces! Too much! Pearls! Yes. Yes! Pearls. More! Pearls! Yes!

  3. I just stumbled on Wikipedia's article on fascinators that noted, with an apparently straight face, "A hatinator combines features of a hat and a fascinator." And now here's the perfect illustration of it.

    1. I refuse to believe in the concept of a hatinator until I see one worn by a member of one of the ruling families of Europe at the level of the Princess Royal or above.

      Actually, I refuse to believe in almost anything until it is endorsed by the Princess Royal; it simplifies things to a remarkable degree.
