WWD still doesn't know who designed the giant floppy hat Chelsea Clinton wore as a disguise when she slipped into Vera Wang yesterday. They did, however, talk to a hat expert about what it all means: "Milliner Eric Javits couldn’t take credit for the topper, though he once designed a cloche one for the bride-to-be. 'I really like that she was wearing that hat. It shows she has grown from an innocent and is assured of herself as a woman. You can tell she’s interested in fashion because she really fixes herself up,' he said." [WWD]
