Voted for Maxima, I thought it was great especially with the diamond brooches on the side. My other vote would've been for Queen Anne-Marie, simply elegant.

This is the first I had seen of Ameerah. I had to vote for her hat, but I know it was the combination of her beauty and the tasteful trendiness of her chapeau.

Had we been able to vote on the top three, my second would have been Maria Teresa of Lux and Charlene.

I've voted for Ameerah,her coquette hat looked very classy,elegant and at the same time exotic on her!My ten points are for her....
Though Letizia's hat was very appropriate,I didn't like the whole outfit.Victoria's hat was excellent,but not very original

My vote went to Letizia. Although my pick for best dressed was Maxima, followed by Victoria, I found Letizia's hat the prettiest. It was delicate and feminine and I loved the colour. Victoria's hat was very elegant but nothing we haven't see before.
I also liked Marie-Chantal's, it was different and stylish.

It was a tough call between Letizia and Máxima, but I voted for Letizia. That hat has been growing on me! It is very delicate, stylish, and only Letizia could have pulled it off.

I loved that Máxima wore her diamond stars on her hat. It was a lovely gesture.

I also loved Queen Sofia's fascinator, the color was perfect on her.

Lastly, Victoria's hat looked great on her, and the color, fab, but it wasn't special enough to get my vote.

On the opposite end, what was CP Margarita wearing? I don't get that, I don't get it at all.

Letizia can wear anything and look fabulous but Ameerah was stunning in that peach confection. Maria Teresa looked even shorter with that deep crown.
However she was able to pull it off better than most

Holy biscuits! Where did this Ameerah chick come from! Dang nothing in my country looks that good.
As for the hats it was a close call for me; real close! I hate doing this but I have to jump on the bandwagon and vote for Maxima. Looked like a combo of a hat and a turban. I was going to vote for Margarita because of the colors and style, but the boring band around her head kind or ruined it for me, she is second though.

My vote for Princess Victoria. Princess Maxima's hat and a nice style is very similar to the Ottoman Sultan.

I am split between P Letizia and P Victoria, though I like the other hats that look like normal hats. Though I will say the other hats are pretty to even the odd looking ones but I have to go with the two I named as the prettiest.

Marie Chantal is my pick.
I loved her entire getup.

CP Letizia, it was her first time with the hat and she looked lovely, very feminine.
I also like CP Maxima's (original shape but she wore it well) and queen Anne-Marie (she is one of the best dressed women of her generation).
