The biggest fashion show on earth, the royal wedding, got underway in a riot of bright colors, flamboyant fascinators and larger-than-life hats.  The hats were the big talking point of the day, as many guests jazzed up their formal outfits with creations by milliner-to-the-stars Philip Treacy.
Most were plasing to the eye , while some were just a sight for sore eyes. Here are a few of the Royal Lids that made out collectors list

The stepmother of the groom complements her Anna Valentine champagne dress and two-tone coat with an airy Philip Treacy hat, one of up to 100 he's made for guests at the ceremony and parties.

Twitter addict & wife of the House of Commons Speaker John Bercow adds a dash of whimsy to her black lace sheath with a feathered fascinator.

Prince Edward's wife stayed neutral in a beige Bruce Oldfield dress and coat with a rosette spray from Jane Taylor perched on the side of her blonde hair.

The next royal in line to get hitched . Standing  out in an intricate black Philip Treacy hat, paired with a periwinkle look by Paul Costelloe.

The expectant star designer  matches a swingy navy dress from her own collection to a dramatic , gravity defying floral Philip Treacy fascinator.

Born Sophie Winkleman, the daughter-in-law of the Duke and Duchess of Kent, is in the navy in her diamond-patterned suit and sculpted straw hat with festive twirls.

The mother of the bride adds something blue in her sky blue silk dress and matching passementerie coat by Catherine Walker (one of Princess Diana's favorites), paired with a matching hat by Berkshire based milliner Jane Corbett.

The groom's royal cousins(looking like the ugly sisters of cinderella)  make for a quite interesting  duo in their Philip Treacy hats. Eugenie sets off her bold blue floral Vivienne Westwood suit with an equally electric hat with feathers and flowers, while Beatrice accents her red locks with a sculptural blush topper to match her Valentino coat.

The wife of the heir to the Belgian throne is terrific in teal, including her structured Philip Treacy hat.

The singer leaves her hippie chic style behind, picking a classic wide-brim hat with embellishments to match her red sheath and cropped jacket.

Prince Harry's date tops her custom Alberta Ferretti suit  with a beige netting-topped fascinator.

The stylish sisters make quite a striking photo as they enter Westminster Abbey. Palmer-Tomkinson is a vision in blue, topping her Deborah Milner off-the-shoulder dress and matching Nicholas Kirkwood shoes with a rosette-topped fascinator by Philip Treacy, while her sister matches her multi-color fascinator to her purple sheath dress and fur stole.

The Spanish monarch is a vision in violet, from her silk suit to her netting fascinator.

The Danish monarch picks head-to-toe aqua, including her feather spiral-topped chapeau.

The Swedish princess is a bright spot in her coral wrap dress and matching wide brim straw hat.

Accompanying her husband, Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg, the Spanish beauty adds a touch of flair to her black netted suit with a spray of red roses.

The wife of the Chancellor of the Exchequer George Osborne plays off her filmy gray dress with an elaborate swoop of feathers.

Arriving on the arm of her former footballer husband Trevor – note his coordinating tie and pocket square! – Brooking goes for layers of textured purple.

Accompanying her husband Prince Michael of Kent, the royal family member adds a swath of teal organza to her white hat.
