Hats are Haute

From Marc Jacobs' runway to The Sartorialist, hats are topping off fashion's most alluring outfits. Pull the brim low and embrace your mysterious side. If you are feeling particularly confident, add a punchy 40's inspired red lip. The amazing transformation that happens when a woman puts on a good hat is remarkable! Instant chic.

Same girl in both photos, from The Sartorialist. I adore how she's wearing different hats, but in the same quirky, jaunty and humorous manner. Isabella Blow would be proud to see a real woman wearing a hat that is more avant garde than the usual newsboy.

Isabella Blow's eccentric style quickly set her apart from the rest, catapulting her to success as a fashion director at Vogue and Tatler. Her unusual style and penchant for Phillip Treacy hats made her into a style icon. Her recent suicide may have influenced this season's fashion designers, as such creations were a staple on the FW 07.08 runways.

your comments on my blog are HILARIOUS. keep it up.

also: Those boys look TOTALLY DIFFERENT - the calculus of their outfits come from completely different textbooks - they just happen to use some of the same symbols. TOUCHE!

Isabella is a style icon. Daring, unique, a walking work of art.
I always love to see Phillip Treacy's hats but also love Stephen Jones's too. It is a shame that these days there are few occasions where such hats are suitable. Unless you are a fashion icon living in a fashion capital. Or on a runway.
At least those milliners are able to keep the craft alive with their collaborations with designers for the shows.
