Gallia in purple by British milliner Bundle MacLaren. From her 2012 Olympia collection.
As she describes it: "white silk 12" saucer adorned with a handsewn orchid with white silk petals, satin buds and stripped coque feathers".
Bundle famously had 12 of her creations on heads in Westminster Abbey at the Royal Wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton in 2011. In 2012 Kate's sister Pippa Middleton wore one of her hats.

Why am I photographing it? Lucky Mrs G wore it to a very special wedding last weekend.
