Prince William's cousins Beatrice and Eugenie showed up to the royal wedding this morning wearing fashion-forward outfits topped by avant garde Philip Treacy hats which were described as "comical" but many critics.

Princess Beatrice wore what could have been a very understated Valentino Haute Couture taupe dress with matching jacket, but she topped it off with an oddly shaped Treacy hat in a matching color that pulled focus away from her demure dress and put it squarely on her unflattering headpiece. The hat has already inspired a Facebook page devoted entirely to the beige disaster, called Princess Beatrice's Ridiculous Wedding Hat. As of press time, the group has more than 5,000 fans, many of whom called it "dreadful", "Mickey Mouse ears", or a "pretzel."

As for Eugenie, she didn't fare much better in her tight Vivienne Westwood suit and poufy asymmetrical skirt that emphasized her hourglass figure.

The girls are known for be fashion risk-takers ... but in this case, I don't think the risk paid off!

In fact, Beatrice, who appears to have dramatically slimmed down for the wedding, has looked better wearing practically nothing at all! Check her out in a royal blue bikini last summer in St. Tropez ... after the jump.
