1940s Hats

from Otto Preminger's LAURA


  1. Such a different world back then.

  2. Too true!

    I don't really look good in hats, so I'm not sure it's a fashion I'd like to see come back -- but those 1940s hats are a hoot to look at!

    1940s women's fashion had a very sculptured look to it -- the shoulder pads, the sculpted hair -- and the hats just added to that look. It was sort of a bizarre time for fashion.
