  • Description

    Hats took the fashion headlines on the first day of Royal Ascot race meeting June 16 - and Visnews was there to film some of the latest and more sensational styles.

    Fashion winner was undoubtedly the large wide-brimmed mob cap worm by designer Dawn Offenbach. Her "wedding-cake" hat matched a white frilled apron dress.

    Brilliant sunshine provided a perfect setting for picture hats, pom-poms, flower-pot hats, exotic straws, "coolie" shaped hats, and head hugging lace mob caps.

    The Queen surprised the Ascot fashion-world by wearing last year's outfit - a yellow lace dress with a big-brimmed straw hat.

    Fashion experts called it the "best-dressed" Ascot parade in years.

    SYNOPSIS: Royal Ascot -- race meeting and fashion parade. With eyes not only on horses -- all kinds of horses -- but on everything that goes to make this one of the world's best-dressed outdoor events.

    And with blue skies and summer breezes it was a day to go to anyone's head.

    Hats spectacular or hats simple -- they all contributed to the gaiety that's so much a part of the Ascot scene.
