Top of the titfers

Only two hat-wearers have been featured more than once in the Oxford Enchiridion of Egregious Headgear. The first is our Queen, who has maintained her quiet simplicity and grace into her eighties while her hats have become ever more manic, and the second is Muammar Abu Minyar al-Gaddafi, Guide of the First of September Great Revolution of the Socialist People's Libyan Arab Jamahiriya. He has always been a bit of a show-off hatwise, but has recently acquired a sense of style, as demonstrated by this little gold number.

Facially he hasn't changed much, however; he is still a dead ringer for one of Tenniel's creations.
