I never imagined that a hat could ad so much pizazz to an outfit. The races at the J & B Met, was the perfect platform to sport the different styles of head cover. From elegant sloping hats with large brims, some as big as satellite dishes, to subtle fascinators gently dangling from the side of the head, to cheeky little feathers assembled in a bouquet, there was a hat for all. Some took cover behind head pieces that would have covered the wing span of an eagle, others donned  cylindric shapes reminiscent of the Zulu culture, beautifully adorned with embroidery and other paraphernalia. You be the judge, here are some of what I observed.
