Which royals and stars worked with Philip Treacy, Stephen Jones – and L.A.-based milliner Louise Green?
Hats and fascinators did not disappoint at the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle: An abundance of couture headgear was seen at St. George’s Chapel Saturday morning, and all of it was on point, according to Los Angeles-based milliner Louise Green. “The quality, the level, the styling – everybody looked incredible,” Green said soon after the conclusion of the ceremony. “I didn’t see any weird hats. I only saw great workmanship and style.”
In her Cotner Avenue studio, Green created a trio of hats for London-bound Americans invited to the wedding: a blush-toned straw fedora style for Meghan’s former Suits co-star, Gina Torres; a lampshade design (similar to a bucket hat, the shape was popularized by Christian Dior in the 1950s) in navy, accented with an oversized silk cabbage rose, for Suitsproducer Silver Tree; and a dramatic, wave-like fascinator in gunmetal gray for Meredith Winston, wife of Ben Winston, writer and producer of The Late Late Show with James Corden. Torres’s hat, which featured sprigs of vintage leaves, also came with a healthy dose of symbolism. “She wanted classic American style; she wanted to go as an American, so she decided on a fedora, which was perfect for her,” Green explained.
