Kate Middleton commissions hat from erotic designer
While Kate Middleton is traditionally seen as a fashion forward royal, her latest commission has sparked confusion.

The Duchess of Cambridge has chosen erotic designer Piers Atkinson to make her a new hat for the Queen's Diamond Jubilee this June.

Mr Atkinson is famous for his 2010 collection Sex On The Brain, which featured nudes in the linings and Barbie dolls in suggestive poses.

The commission has come as a surprise as the designer is very publicly disapproving of the royal family.

In a 2010 interview with Fashion156.com the milliner claimed that the Queen was one of his favourite hat wearers.

However, he then went on to add: "I'd love to meet a royal socially - imagine that inbred sense of superiority, generation after generation."

Piers Atkinson's creations have earned him a large celebrity following, with stars such as Lady Gaga, Rihanna and Paloma Faith all wearing his eccentric designs.
