A head for hats

From the most famous milliner to a face that could make any milliner famous.

Audrey Hepburn, in my opinion the most beautiful woman ever to be photographed, could make any hat look good by positioning her elfin little face beneath it.  

Famous in a time when hats were still a part of any well put together ensemble, she wore a miriad of different styles, some almost bigger than her.

From minimalist simplicity, and sharp defined shapes, to flamboyant confections, dripping with excess, she carried them all off with aplomb. So ok most of us are never going to be as beautiful as Audrey, but maybe a hat could help…
