  • Princess Eugenie‘s mother, Sarah Ferguson, wore an Emma Louise Design dress, a matching hat, and nude heels to her daughter’s royal wedding.
  • Ferguson made a big entrance when she arrived, waving and pointing at spectators of the wedding.
  • As photos of Ferguson began to circulate, some Twitter users compared her wing-shaped hat to a variety of pop culture characters.

Princess Eugenie is known for her collection of extravagant hats, but she swapped her signature look for an emerald tiara on her wedding day.

Her mother, Sarah Ferguson, however, just might’ve taken a cue from her daughter’s typical style.

When she arrived at Eugenie’s wedding, Ferguson turned heads with her green Emma Louise Design dress and matching wide-brim hat. She carried a vintage Manolo Blahnik purse.

Almost immediately after her arrival, Twitter users began comparing Ferguson’s wing-shaped hat to a variety of things.

This isn’t the first time a member of Princess Eugenie’s family has made an impression with their headwear

Eugenie and her sister, Princess Beatrice, famously wore unconventional fascinators at the wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton in May 2011. Some drew comparisons between the princesses and Cinderella’s stepsisters.

The royal sisters later revealed that the criticism made them cry.

At Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding in May, however, the two went for more understated headwear.
