Love it or hate it, Princess Beatrice's Philip Treacy hat has reached iconic status since its debut at the Royal Wedding—a status she's probably counting on to bring in the big bucks when she auctions the fascinator online for charity. Beatrice's mother, Sarah Ferguson, appeared on Oprah yesterday, telling the host, "She's putting it up on eBay to auction it for UNICEF and for Children in Crisis." Just imagine how much Lady Gaga's Treacy collection could fetch for charity if she joined forces with the Princess. It would probably feed a small country. Just sayin'. —Phillip B. Crook
