image for Princess Beatrice's Wedding Hat Up For Auction

The bizarre hat worn by Princess Beatrice at the wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton has been put online for auction.

The highest bid currently stands at £18,500 and the auction runs until May 22nd.

All proceeds will go to the charity British Fashion In Crisis.

BFIC chairman Marcia Golders-Entwhistle is delighted with the response so far :

"We at British Fashion In Crisis are over the moon with the level of bidding for what has been affectionately called 'The Star Trek Hat'.

If anything demonstrates perfectly what a sad state British fashion finds itself in at present, then this creation does.

Some of the creations that are making it onto the High Street nowadays are a disgrace and wouldn't have got past the designer's sketch pad in the heydays of the Sixties and Seventies.

We hope to use the funds generated by the auction to invest in producing good, new talent that have imaginative fashion ideas rather than creating the first thing that comes into their head after suffering a bad reaction to a couple of eccies".

Make grimbo's day - give this story five thumbs-up (there's no need to register, the thumbs are just down there!)
