Sarah Ferguson made quite the fashion statement at Princess Eugenie’s wedding, just as we expected. The Duchess of York suited up in a bold green outfit for her daughter’s big day, wearing a blazer-like dress with satin lapels by Emma Louise Design and carrying a vintage clutch that her own mother carried at her wedding to the Duke of York back in 1986. Aww! Though Sarah’s homage to her mom was certainly sweet, there was one other outfit detail that people can’t stop talking about: her hat.
The mother of the bride wore a wide-brimmed hat that perfectly matched her dress and featured a sizable bow jutting out on the sides. As soon as Sarah arrived at St. George’s Chapel to watch her daughter tie the knot with Jack Brooksbank, Twitter erupted with hysterical reactions to her standout accessory, with many drawing comparisons to the golden snitch from the Harry Potter series. I mean, I’m not gonna lie: it does look a bit like she grabbed the elusive Quidditch ball from Harry’s grasp, increased its size tenfold, and secured it to the back of her hat. Sorry, Sarah – there’s no unseeing this one.
