The Best Hats from Royal Ascot 2012

Racegoers at Royal Ascot 2012 sported some spectacular headgear.

Florence Brudenell Bruce attends day two of Royal Ascot at Ascot Racecourse on June 20, 2012 in Ascot, England.Here's the rule: You go to Royal Ascot, you wear an awesome hat. Here are some of this year's best looks so far.

Just because you attend Royal Ascot doesn't mean you need to go bananas with your hat choice. Understated and classical in a subdued neutral also works. Just ask Kate Silverton in her taupe and featured fedora.

Yellow is fast becoming the color of the season—and it looks like this lady got the fashion memo!

You don't need a slash of feathers or florals to look fantastic at Royal Ascot. Princess Haya Bint Al Hussein picked a graphic, minimalist navy blue hat—with a squiggle! We love it.

Things we love: when guys and gals get dressed to the nines. Michael Owen and Louise Bonsall make a fantastic-looking pair here—with her in fuchsia headgear.

There's something about a full-on traditional look that really tickles us pink and at this year's Royal Ascot, Princess Anne really nails it. She's wearing a pink-and-cream wide-brimmed hat, a floral bodiced-top, pleated midi-skirt, and matching cream shoes and handbag.

You don't need to get all dolled up to wear a fancy hat—you can wear a fabulous headpiece even if you're only sporting a simple day dress!

Don't be afraid of fun new hat shapes—not everything needs to be all classical a la Kate Middleton and the royals. We love this tall, feathered creation on the far left here.

Love animal prints? Why not wear them on your head?

We love Lisa Scott-Lee and Faye Tozer's retro-inspired pin-up girl-esque hats—they look like they just stepped out of a Marilyn Monroe movie.
