Lady Gaga’s Architectural Digest

It ain’t no thang to spot Lady Gaga wearing crazy headgear or anything, but the one she wore at the 30th Anniversary Gala of MOCA (Museum of Contemporary Art) was notable for being designed by none other than uber-architect Frank Gehry. Now that’s an interesting fashion collaboration. [L.A., 11/14/09]…

Quick Pic: Keep Your Ears Warm This Winter With A Hair Hat

This week, the temperature dropped enough for our ears to feel the cold. It’s time to bring out the hats and ear warmers but wouldn’t this “Hallowig” hair hat be a more, um, interesting way to keep toasty this winter? Knit yourself a new ‘do by following these instructions. [Knitty via À La Garçonnière]…

Smile! Creepy Hat Forces You To Grin At All Times

Just what we all need—a hat that makes us smile. Constantly. It’s called “The Happiness Hat” (obviously) and you either smile in it or suffer the consequences—literally, from a jolt of pain it inflicts upon you. For some reason I don’t think Bright-Sided author Barbara Ehrenreich would be feeling this contraption—because as she see…

Hair Model Citizen: Chic Hat Head

Actress Monet Mazur is today’s hair model citizen and here is why: There will be days, my loves, when your trusty tresses will, quite honestly, look like s**t. I know, I know, it’s so unfathomable, but true. Whether you have paparazzi following you around while you’re shopping or you’re simply afraid of running into a…

Wear Big Hats This Summer—Without Looking Like The Queen Mum

Big hats are often placed in the little-old-British-lady-at-a-garden-party category. Not anymore! They are the chicest chapeau to wear if you want to look properly polished while making a serious style statement. If you are bold enough to wear one, that is. Be warned—these wide-brimmed, bright-colored and flowered-covered numbers are not for wallflowers. Here’s a few…

Um, No: The Cap-Sac

This is the age of multitasking, so it shouldn’t be a surprise that fashion is following suit. Voilà: the Cap-Sac, a hat-cum-fannypack that protects you from the sun and stores your keys and wallet at the same time. Amazing! The nylon 80s-vibe chapeaus come in funky fresh colors like turquoise, pink, electric-yellow and cool zipper…

Lady GaGa’s Head Is The Center Of The Universe

Are you sick of Lady GaGa? We aren’t! Yesterday, the Lady was on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” to perform “Poker Face.” Not only was her intro interesting (she starts off sounding like Amy Winehouse and ends up playing the piano while standing on the bench in heels), but her outfit, once again, wa…

Quick Pic: Posh Popularizes The Police Cap

Apparently, leather police-style hats are totally in among a certain crowd. Lady GaGa wore one last week, as well. [NYC, 5/3/09]…

Poll: Would You Wear This Hat?

At yesterday’s Diane Von Furstenberg fashion show, the models wore knit hats loaded with pom-poms. Would you wear one?

Fashion Extras: Cold Weather Accessories

When the cold weather hits, looking hot isn’t an easy thing to achieve. In many cases, an attempt to stay warm can result in a Marshmallow Man phenomenon, something that wasn’t even stylish in 1984. Check out these scarves, gloves, and other winter warmers that will dress you up, but not necessarily weigh you down.

Cloche Call: Eight Ladylike Hats

If your mother is anything like mine, she probably used to yell at you all winter: “If you don’t put on a hat, you’re going to catch pneumonia!” I hated wearing my stocking hat when I was younger — all the cool girls had ear muffs or knit headbands. Oh, how the times have changed.

Quick Pic: Put On Your Crazy Hat

Yesterday, there was hat-like hair at Christian Dior, and today there were giant wildflower bouquets atop the models’ heads at Junya Watanabe. Apparently headgear is big for spring. [Junya Watanabe fashion show; Paris Fashion Week; 9/30/2008]…

Style On The Street: Transitioning Into Fall

How long has it been since it was cool enough for you to wear pants? Far too long, in our opinion. This hat-wearing gal, with her tank and skinny jeans, makes us yearn for sunny days that aren’t at all humid, when pants can be worn without sticking uncomfortably to the legs. Autumn rocks. [Trender

Hat Hair, Meet Your Greatest Enemy

Bangs are cute and all, but they make wearing hats rather difficult. If you push them back into the hat, then you can’t take the hat off since your hair will be stuck in an awkward style, but if you leave them down, the bangs get plastered onto your forehead. That’s why someone invented the…

Ten Chic, Irresistible Straw Hats

I burn easily and absolutely must wear a hat when I go to the beach. While I usually don the baseball cap I’ve had for about eight years (perfectly broken in and also a little smelly), I think a straw hat would look a lot more sophisticated. And who knew they came in so many…

The Daily Hotness Slideshow: Guys In Hats

Catherine and I are obsessed with hats. I can’t wait for the weather to commit to Spring so I can break out my awesome woven straw fedora. In the meantime, we enjoy looking at pictures of guys in hats because most of the time, it makes for some serious sex appeal. Unless they are covering…
