Apparently, the original costume sold for a pretty penny at auction.

You can buy a reproduction on Etsy for $650. Where would you wear it?

This reproduction-while excellent- shows the failure to copy brilliant subtleties that sets the original apart:

  • The more interesting double stripe taffeta fabric
  • The "cuffed" edge heavily wired to shape, more rounded, flattering
  • Dried grasses (not 2 fern sprigs) & flower arrangement that shows movement, doesn't just lie there.

I have a very well-made reproduction of this hat. You do not need to know why.

Gotta ask, Sans.

Do you also occasionally use a broom for things other than sweeping?

(...like say, for transportation purposes?)

I use broom only for sweeping snow off my car and giving a certain little fuzzy a whack on the backside. I am for all other things a Swiffer girl.

"Swiffer girl"?

Didn't Brian Wilson once write a song about you?

(...oh...wait...no...sorry)

Let's start off with the famous Ninotchka Hat! In terms of fashion this is absolutely ridiculous and I'd never wear it outside. In terms of historical costume appeal, I'd use it in a movie or show in five seconds because I LOVE THIS HAT!

Much ridicule is made about these Nuclear Power Plant shaped hats Adrian favored. In his defense, the organic shape is very flattering to a perfect face such as Garbo's: she has strong perfectly symmetrical evenly spaced  features. The hat creates a triangular shape along with her hark hair on either side of her neck perfectly framing her face without effecting the proportion.

Unfortunately, it's too different and comes across as silly, subconsciously reminding people of this:

PS I'm a hat collector & have several of the styles pictured in this thread.

This style of hat I'm sure was worn by many in its day, but this gent wore it better than most.

Ronald Colman! Yes!!!

Nowadays they just call a fedora a "Gangster Hat"

or, if you bought one at Disneyland in the 90s like I did, it was called an "Indian Jones Hat"

Ugh I have a marvelous Australian Wool Riding hat I no longer wear because everyone calls it an "Indiana Jones" hat. It's a weatherproof COWBOY hat:
