Last week, Sarah Ferguson announced on “The Oprah Show” that her daughter Beatrice would be putting her crazy lady octopi fascinator up for sale on eBay, and that proceeds would benefit UNICEF. The auction doesn’t end until May 22, but bids are already up to more than $30,000. So what might one do if you…

Beware Your Tiny Hat

File this under bizarre fashion emergencies. This guy superglued his tiny hat to his head and couldn’t get it off. He thought he might have to wear the tiny top hat around forever until Dr. Shabir saved the day by performing an emergency hat amputation, a hamputation. Let this be a warning to Helena

No One Rocks A Fedora Like Yoko Ono

Fedoras have made such a comeback recently that they’re now normal, as opposed to trendy. But few celebrities or style geeks have mastered the swagger of a fedora like Yoko Ono. I love how she’s giving someone not pictured in the photo the side-eye that’s framed by the brim of her hat and sunglasses. That’…

Want A Man? Wear A Hat

Ladies, having trouble attracting a man (AND HOW)? Then grab a bowler hat. That’s right: a bowler hat. According to Daily Mail writer Deborah Francis-White, a jaunty cap will do the trick to attract a mate. Says Francis-White: “I’ve worn a bowler hat and the effect is extraordinary. When I walk down the street dressed…

A Winter Hat To Tap Into Your Animal Instincts

Guess what: winter sucks. If you live in the Eastern hemisphere like we do, you know that starting December 1st or so, it can be nearly impossible to go outside and feel even moderately warm. You need armor. And preferably something heavy-duty that doesn’t look crazy (read: no homemade mustache knit caps or scary bank…

Do Not Want: Margiela’s Fur Headdress

Just when you thought all the fervor over “Where the Wild Things Are” had died down, Maison Martin Margiela designs this fur headdress. Not only is this thing made of 100 percent Murmansky fur, (i.e., fur from the raccoon dog), but it’s also extremely large and hideous. Not for us. Nope. [Fashion Indie]…

Spirit Hoods Help You Look Like The Bear You Think You Are

Oh, look! Over there! At the end of the bar! It’s … a panda bear? Oh, wait, no, no, it’s actually just a guy wearing panda bear ears and paws. Ugh. Part of a new trend of “spirit animal” fashion, we’re seeing more and more people out and about with spirit hoods. Theoretically, yes, it’…

Dude Looks We Love: Slouchy Beanies

If I may be so bold, I don’t think there are many things as sexy as a guy in a slouchy knit cap. Maybe Cate Blanchett’s voice. Maybe David Bowie as the Goblin King in “Labyrinth.” But that’s about it. For example, I had never really given Josh Hartnett a second look until he started…

Lady Gaga Wants To Be A Fashion Intern

Not content to wait for a closet full of insane headware to be delivered, Lady Gaga wants to DIY a few. A rep for Philip Treacy, who has designed hats for everyone from Alexander McQueen to Valentino and Dior, told British Vogue that “the [internship] request came through quite a while ago.” Apparently Treacy and…

Snooki Has Some Serious Hat Head

Mayday: Snooki has landed in Miami, and homegirl doesn’t travel light. While many of us try to pare down when we pack and move, not Nicole Polizzi. She just grabs everything she has and even wears it if she needs to, like this random sombrero she must’ve picked up one Spring Break in Cabo. [Miami,…

How Do We Feel About Russian Fur Hats?

Yesterday, we asked how you felt about berets being back. (Let’s just say your answers varied.) So here’s another winter look we’re putting out to the jury—the ginormous fur hat, last seen loitering on various NYC hipsters, some skinny actress during her Aspen vacation and/or at the Sundance Film Festival. These Russian-inspired caps have a…

Are You Braced For The Beret Comeback?

Off the top off our heads, heh, people who wear berets: Beatniks, Parisians, Carrie Bradshaw trying to look like a dumb Parisian, models in the Spiegel catalogue, women in the ’80s.

That doesn’t paint the most appealing of pictures. While the beret has been around in fashion circles for ages, you probably haven’t…

This Wolf Trend Has Really Taken Off

Judging from oh, say, all those three wolf moon shirts that keep popping up all over the place, wolves are (still) hot, hot, hot right now! They must be if international “it” girl Daisy Lowe wore this fetching (har) hat to Rihanna’s “it” concert in London this evening. Being complete sheep (ha), we scoured the…
