Royal Wedding Coverage: Hats Off!

Victoria Beckham wears the tallest heels on earth to the royal wedding and a Phillip Treacy hat. Check 'em out here on Styleite. The slideshow will be updated again, so you might have to click through to see her.

Livestream on WSJ.

BBC news site live updates. Elton John pics. Also, it has so much traffic, I think it may crash!

As of 4:56 AM ET: people I have never heard of and celebrities are arriving at the Abbey. But the unofficial must-have wedding attire is funky hats. Madness! (UPDATE: Many of the hats were by Stephen Jones.) Women in uglier hats by boring designers too. A lot of great ones though.

As of 5:05 AM ET, Official Statement: "Mrs. Carole Middleton is wearing a sky blue wool crepe coatdress with matching satin piping and passementerie at the waist and cuff over a sky blue silk shantung ‘Sydney’ day dress with short pleated sleeves and pleated pockets.  The dress and coatdress are by Catherine Walker.  Mrs. Middleton’s hat is by Berkshire-based Jane Corbett."

Terrrrribly complex details about Prince William's outfit available here. Yes, I do know what passementerie is, but haven't the foggiest what a "forage cap" is. 

5:15 AM ET: Crowd goes crazy for Prince William and Prince Harry.

5:25 AM ET: The Prince is looking mighty fine. He seems be handling the pressure well, happy and a bit nervous.
