Philip Treacy isn’t too upset about the outcry over the wacky hat he designed for Princess Beatrice to wear to the royal wedding.

"My inspiration was beauty and elegance. It's a 21st century royal wedding," Treacy told HollywoodLife.com. PHOTOS: What Kate Middleton and famous guests wore to the wedding

When asked if Beatrice or her sister Eugenie (who also donned a bizarre style by Treacy) weighed in on the design, he said, "No, they didn't tell me [what they wanted] because I've known them for a long time and I wanted them to look gorgeous and beautiful."

"They trusted me to make them. Gorgeous and beautiful can be open to interpretation … I thought they looked gorgeous and beautiful. But no one is crying if anyone didn't," Treacy went on. PHOTOS: Famous royal weddings
