Hats off to!! She has once again proved to every one that she has her head firmly on her shoulders, especially in the style department. The Duchess of Cambridge has just bagged the coveted title of the ‘Hat Person of the Year.’
Britain's future Queen has been bestowed this title for her enviable style by the Headwear Association today on 27th January, 2012. This is the association’s third annual ‘Hat Person of the Year’ award.
Kate Middleton acquired a phenomenal 91% of the votes in the organization's online poll to finish at the top, after impressing everyone with a wonderful array of amazing hats over the past year.
The 30-year old Duchess beat of stiff competition leaving behind high profile hat wearers like, Ne-Yo and Justin Timberlake and Charlie Sheen, who ended up as very distant runners-up.
Bagging style awards is now like a habit for the always impeccably attired Duchess of Cambridge. In 2011, Kate Middleton added the Harper's Bazaar 's best-dressed honor to her kitty, as also the International Style Star honor by Vanity Fair.
It may be recalled that Kate Middleton looked terrific in a gorgeous burgundy/wine colored Jane Corbett hat, when she attended church service on Christmas Day with the Royal family at Sandringham.
Clearly an avid headgear fan, the stylish Duchess was the cynosure of all eyes atwedding in Edinburgh last summer, when she sported a large cream hat, a Gina Foster creation.
The earlier winners of the Hat Person of the Year award include Headwear Association claims it is the ‘oldest fashion trade association in the industry.’ Their basic aim is to promote hat wearing and the headwear industry all over the world.and Brad Pitt. The
