You may have thought that big fancy hats were only reserved for royalty, but Ann Shoebridge proves otherwise with her elegant dramatic designs.

The collection was shot by photographer Jo Duck who used a solid red background for many of the images, emphasizing the celebration of Japanese style. Each of the hats has a name like Shibuya, Ginza and Kawaii. Ann Shoebridge says she was inspired by things like "Cherry blossom season, warm sake, big city lights and a hint of Kyoto rustic charm," according to stylemelbourne.com. Funky nail designs by the Super Rad Nail Sisters also accompany the shoot.

Titled 'Tokyu Hats,' Ann Shoebridge's collection is a mix of Eastern inspiration and royalty to make you feel like a princess on any given day.
