One Shot: Duchess Kate Wears Statement Hat for the Holidays

The Duchess of Cambridge stepped out with the royal family over the holiday weekend sporting one of her signature statement toppers. This aubergine hat -- an updated trilby silhouette -- was designed by Jane Corbett, who has been described as the royal family's milliner, and apparently the jacket was designed by an independent British designer.

As a spokesperson for the royal family told Richard Palmer: "The Duchess is keen to use independent British dress- makers, whose skills and craftsmanship she admires."

It sounds like the Duchess may be taking a page from Michelle Obama's playbook in highlighting lesser-known designers.
