Hat head? Pshaw, the residents of Tinseltown do not worry about such mortal quandaries. Instead, celebrity trendsetters have embraced the entire hat spectrum, whether as a means of styling their outfits or attempting to slink around unnoticed. If you┬'d like to get a little incognito via this popular and classic look, we have all the information on what style to snag and where the bold-faced names buy their brims of choice.
The major fashion houses (Prada, Balenciaga, Gucci) always make dome-toppers galore, or you could hit up important vintage stores (The Way We Wore, Resurrection, Decades, What Goes Around Comes Around) for unique pieces. Currently though, there are a handful of hot hatters that Hollywood covets: Eugenia Kim (popular styles like the Muffy 4, $195 cashmere equestrian cap, are worn by Madonna), Jacqueline Lamont (Jessica Simpson owns many of her $132 newsboy caps), and Tracy Watts (the $242 Pinched Fedora was worn to great effect by Jennifer Lopez).
However, if committing to such investments seems silly, we respectfully direct you to Hollywood Hatter hollywoodhatters.com. Their Derby Bowler ($40, in black, white, red, brown, or blue) and Small Brim Fedora (also $40, in brown, black, and gray) are exactly like Lindsay and Kate┬'s, respectively. They also make a grand pork pie┬--in the style of Buster Keaton, Charles Mingus, and seen on Proenza Schouler┬'s Spring 2007 runway┬--for the small sum of $40. As a mere moral, we can┬'t swear you won┬'t have mussy hair when you remove your stylish new hat, but you will look fantastic, and isn┬'t that what really counts? Sure.
