Isabell Kristensen, a Danish-born haute-couture designer who has dressed Liza Minnelli, Nicole Kidman and Shania Twain, looks remarkably calm given the mess on her head. Her three-part Ascot creation consists of a plain white "pringle" that resembles an oversize flower petal, a lilac bow and a bunch of purple hydrangeas. Photo taken June 14, 2011.
