Lady Movie Stars in Interesting Hats

Its been a long week, so let's agree to take it easy and see if I can't do better next week.

Sirens of the silver screen of yesteryear.  Period and costume specific hats.  Lets take a look.

Here's Marie Windsor in a decidedly non-Noir get-up.

an odd answer to "I'm going to slip into something more comfortable"
Maureen O'Hara as a PIRATE

Veronica Lake goes militaristic

if this had been on a recruiting poster when I was 18, I would have been career military
Ingrid Bergman as Joan of Arc

only Bergman could work a suit of armor
Jane Russell goes out west

I'm sure we had a theme but I've quite forgotten what it is right now
Gene Tierney pioneers the tiny hat

well, it does match the coat
And, of course, Dietrich in the hat she made famous

special bonus picture: Sophia Loren in a hat

I'm sorry.  Google made me do it.

Weren't there a series of insane hats in My Fair Lady?

Oh, yes. One could write a whole separate post. Not sure how I didn't think of Ms. Hepburn in her mega-hat...
