Blog: Dean BestDeliciously bold

Dean Best | 18 June 2009

The bold and the bizarre are always guaranteed to turn out for Ladies Day at Ascot, but this year, the most unusual yet came from a lady sporting an edible 99 Cadbury's Flake hat.

In celebration of the 10th anniversary of “Britain's most iconic ice cream”, Fredericks Ice Cream commissioned milliner Judy Bentinck to create a four-foot cone hat.

Made of mesh and satin, the 4ft headwear includes real chocolate flake pieces that racing fans can sample.

Freya Berry was the lucky (or should I say unlucky?) model chosen to wear the hat.

Let’s just hope the sun doesn’t make an appearance or she may well be sampling the hat herself…whether she likes it or not…
