Hats From The Women (1939)

The Women is a fast paced, witty movie about gossipy upper class New York wives. The costumes designed by Adrian steal the show. These women would have been wearing couture and Adrian does a great job of interpreting that look through a Hollywood lens. He suffuses glamor with surrealism. And what you get are some really put together looks finished with fabulous accessories including some marvelous broaches and some really interesting hats that at times can be gorgeous and others, really out there.

Note the Schiaparelli influence on the look on the left.

The glitziest Great-Depression era Nevada ranch I've ever seen.

What are your favorite movie hats?
