Hats off!

Since she officially became a royal last year when she married Prince William on April 29 -- Happy Anniversary! -- Kate Middleton has made a big impact on fashion from her nude pumps to ladylike dresses. And even Hollywood has taken notice.

Several stars have been inspired to accessorize with fun fascinators, just like Kate.

Kim Kardashian showed up at Perez Hilton's birthday bash in Los Angeles March 24 sporting a playful black fascinator adorned with a silver ribbon design atop her long brunette hair.

Like Kardashian's design, fascinators became popular in the early 20th century and are often worn to the side or the front of the forehead, making the accessory look oddly bird-like at times.
