Two very different, completely unrelated yet iconic items of clothing are going up for auction.
Sarah Ferguson, aka the Duchess of York, aka Fergie, told Oprah today that her eldest daughter, Princess Beatrice, would auction off her infamous Philip Treacy fascinator on eBay to benefit UNICEF and Children in Crisis, according to People. (Fergie also, as it has been widely reported, confessed to Oprah that not being invited to the wedding while her daughters attended in all their couture-and-Treacy-finery was “very difficult.”)
Bea’s hat garnered almost as much attention as Kate’s wedding dress or Pippa’s bum, and has inspired the creation of several Facebook groups (my favorite is “Princess Beatrice’s hat looks like a uterus“). While most of the attention has been negative, Bea doesn’t mind.
