Dame Kristin Scott Thomas

We would like to say congratulations to Dame Kristin Scott Thomas who was recently honoured for her services to drama. Soon to play the Queen herself in The Audience at London's West End, Kristin Scott Thomas came face to face with Her Majesty when she recently accepted her dame-hood at Buckingham Palace. 
She opted for a classic sophisticated Navy coat and dress along with our pillbox hat which we dyed exclusively to match. We worked with her chosen garments to create a simplistically chic design that complemented the colour tone and incorporated her style.
