Washington (CNN) - Just days before her wedding, Chelsea Clinton was spotted by Women's Wear Daily outside the Vera Wang showroom in New York City, sporting an enormous straw hat that drooped over her entire head.

Ostensibly meant to shield her from prying eyes, the hat (and the rest of Chelsea) is featured prominently on the WWDEYE Scoop's website, along with a story detailing some other juicy tidbits about the Clintons' pre-wedding festivities.

In the piece, which was posted online Wednesday, Rosemary Feitelberg said that Chelsea Clinton was "asked on the street what she found most challenging about planning a wedding." Feitelberg writes that, "Clinton looked up briefly but remained silent and lowered her head again." Feitelberg also noted that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton attended the Vera Wang event with her daughter, and described the nation's top diplomat as scrolling through her Blackberry "momentarily on the sidewalk while waiting for her handlers to disembark."

According to Feitelberg, both Clintons were attended by a number of "burly" secret service agents who "cooled their heels in nearby SUVs and periodically patrolled the street."

Secretary Clinton also went to designer and longtime Clinton pal Oscar de la Renta's showroom on Tuesday, says WWDEYE, though the piece has some conflicting information about whether or not Chelsea was with her. Feitelberg also takes the liberty to declare that Chelsea Clinton's wedding will be "leagues above her parents' considerably more meager nuptials." She goes on to say that Hillary Rodham "wore a granny-looking dress when she exchanged vows with Bill Clinton."

WWDEYE says that while designer Wang did not comment for the piece, she is "said to be designing the bridesmaids dresses as well as the flower girls' dresses."

    The only thing wrong is that it's not being televised. With all the ugly stuff we endure everyday, hour after hour, it would be nice to watch and enjoy a lovely moment in this young, beautiful couple's life! May Chelsea & Marks life be filled with sunshine!

    I agree 100% with Telling It Like It Is...say it again! CNN, you are the worst. Leave the girl alone. She is not a politician and she is famous by default and not design....Leave her alone to enjoy her day!
