Fashion may not be Prime Minister Stephen Harper's strong suit.

A photo of Harper precariously balancing a hat on top of his head rather than simply wearing it is prompting chuckles on Twitter. The photo was taken Saturday while the prime minister was watching U.S. Open tennis with his two children, Rachel and Benjamin.

The incident is just the latest in a long line of fashion disasters for Harper.

In April, his outfit on a beach walk in Colombia prompted widespread ridicule. And who can forgot the infamous vest?
