A bathing beauty, photographed by Richard Rutledge. 1957.
"A hat is like a super power times ten." said master milliner
Stephen Jones. "You move differently in a hat, you feel differently, you act out a part.
But more than anything, hats are about the person wearing them."
Think of Faye Dunaway in her beret, Jackie Kennedy in her pillbox
or dear Isabella Blow in an outlandishly fabulous creation.
Hats add glamour and they are worn for precisely that reason.
Huge hats add serious glamour but really anything goes- as long as it's
worn with conviction.
