If I ever get a CBE [very unlikely] I don’t think I shall risk wearing a hat by Phillip Treacey when I go to the Palace. I don’t know if HM watches The Simpsons [perhaps she thinks it is a historical drama about the family of her unmentionable American aunt] – but last week when she conferred the honour on designer Katherine Hamnett, she must have thought she’d got Sideshow Bob standing in front of her!
The Queen, as usual, was unfazed by the hat [well, she is used to seeing her grand-daughters in odd headgear after all!]
Speaking after receiving the award [for services to fashion], 63-year-old Ms Hamnett urged the world’s major cotton growers to go organic.
She said cultivating it without pesticides was better for farmers, the land and the environment generally.
‘Consumers want organic cotton but the industry is taking a long while to catch up with demand,’ she said.
Exactly which OT prophet went round dressed like that, do you think?
