Have you ever heard of Ascot?

It is a small town situated about twenty-five miles west of London. It is known worldwide thanks to a major social event in Great Britain: the Royal Ascot Racehorse, which takes place every month of June since 1711. The royal family attend the meeting and arrive each day in a horse-drawn carriage.

Such a prestigious meeting requires an elegant attire. Here is a video with some tips in case you are invited!

Hats are a very important accessory for women in Ascot. Now, some are really elegant and  others are... simply crazy! Take a look at them! Do you think you can describe them?

Which one's your favourite?
