From Kate Middleton to Oprah Winfrey and Priyanka Chopra, he designed the hats for many lovely ladies at the royal wedding.

Philip Treacy is the man of the moment -- almost every gorgeous celeb showed up at the royal wedding wearing a hat designed by the Irish milliner and London based fashion designer.

It is a popular saying that if you are looking for the biggest name in the hat business, look no further than Treacy, who began sewing at a really young age.

He studied at London's prestigious Royal College of Art, and has designed some bespoke hats for Sarah Jessica Parker, Lady Gaga and the royal family too!

Presenting some of his stunning creations from the royal wedding.
