Hollywood's Hats

Hollywood's Hats
Tuesday, January, 09, 2007 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.


*Did you guess the hidden star? The answer is, Kate Moss!
