Yes, we're talking about this hat again—and we promise it's the last time. Princess Beatrice put her kooky Royal Wedding hat up for auction on eBay last week, and someone (was it you?) bought the fascinator for $131,000. While a Philip Treacy creation usually fetches about $3,300, the money spent on this extra-special design will be donated to UNICEF and Children in Crisis. After the auction closed, Bea released a statement saying, "It has its own personality, and I am so happy that we have raised the most incredible amount of money and can make an even bigger change for the lives of some of the most vulnerable children across the world." —Phillip B.
