Hilariously Hatted Historic Statues
London's Statues Get Made Over by the HATWALK

These historical figures are entertainingly hatted for the showcase HATWALK. The 21 most famous statues around the city of London are given quirky designs from British millinery. Hats off should be given to the magazine publication Grazia and the Mayor of London, who worked in collaboration to create this event.

According to the Grazia website, “HATWALK brings together three quintessentially British elements—our rich history, high fashion and a healthy dose of eccentricity.” This celebration of all things British is not only charming but also well-executed.

Some of the statues featuring new headwear include the Angel of Peace, William Shakespeare, Winston Churchill and the Young Lovers to name a few. By following the map provided by Grazia Magazine, vistors can see the entire collection of hilariously hatted notables.
