Statement hat which is becoming her signature.

I think they are a tad anti-social. If you are on her right, you cant see her face at all and it would be difficult to get her attention; if you are behind her (and sitting down) you wouldn't see anything; and if on her left and she turned her head away, she'd tickle your nose!

It would appear that Sophie shares the Queen's love of the Launer handbag. Sophie's seems to be the Tosca, which Launer's website says is a favourite of the Duchess of Cornwall and the Crown Princess of Japan:

The cream and black dress with black coat are a very complimentary match. However I am not a fan of the hat. The stark white looks completely wrong here and the mass of black feathers is just a bit over the top. Otherwise Sophie does look lovely.

I don't care for the flying-saucer-meets-feather-duster contraption. It is just too OTT; otherwise, I like the black-and-white palette of the outfit and her handbag. But the side view of Sophie's hair is beautiful; I think she could have worn another hat to set off her hairstyle and the outfit better. Don't get too carried away, Sophie!

Love the dress, the jacket and the bag.
Hate the hat. It just looks so ridiculous!

I like it very much. Sofie style is rather simple but she really can pull-off the hats.

Guess I'm in the minority here, but I LOVE Sophie's choices in hats! I thinks it's becoming her signature thing. Thanks for the link on the clutch, I like it too.

She looks lovely, but the hat is too big IMO

Too much with the hat, but everything else is very appropriate and elegant. The solid color of the jacket balances out the dots on the dress.

Phew, that is an expensive handbag. What on Earth do they need to carry in them anyway?

I love Sophie's dress and jacket combo, and I am so glad she wore black shoes! Black shoes are so much sophisticated. I am not a fan of the hat really, but it looks great on Sophie. She makes them work, and I love her hairstyle. The images of Harry and Sophie giggling because he did not know which cheek to kiss due to her hat were funny.

Sophie does look quite tired in the images. I was thinking she's now probably going to go to France to join Edward for their annual skiing trip. Jealousy does not even come CLOSE to how I feel about that, haha.

There is a part of me that likes outrageous hats, though I couldn't/wouldn't wear them myself. However, I am starting to wish that Sophie would wear one on the top of her head instead of attached to the side. They make me think the hat is hanging on her ear.

I like the dress with the jacket, adore the handbag, the hairstyle is perfect, but enough with these fascinators, Darling Sophie... We've had some fun, time to move on.

I love her hats and she always recycles so if the first time they look odd a second or third will always change my mind. The little bag is expensive I agree but Sophie always seems to make her bags last for years and I guess this one will be the same.

The hat is gorgeous. One of Treacy's styles that I adore (worn to the side, with a big feather, flower etc. as highlight). Not many can wear them well, Sophie can.

I love Sophie's look for the Memorial Service, even if it did look a bit "office-worky". She wore the dress well, it was a great fit. The hat, I am not a HUGE fan of, but Sophie wears them well, they are her signature style. Her hairstyle, as always, looks great.
