Fedora Hats used to be a 'Man's' Hat - Every sophisticated movie star, gangster, businessman, every mans-man used to wear a Fedora in the 40's and 50's - My favourite image of the Fedora is the cover of one of my 'Dean Martin' CD's - Dean and his Fedora were 'iconic'. Women, on the other hand wore more feminine, feather and flower-like designs. The past is definitely making a comeback, but in reverse - this time around, its women who are 'rocking' the fedora and the look is classy with a mysterious edge - check out the following images:
THe popular fashion ads for Burberry are known for their Fedora wearing female models - They make the Fedora look charming and timeless!
And yes, we can't forget that men still look great and sophisticated in a Fedora too!!! Johnny Depp oozes sexiness in this picture - I love the Fedora on him!
So here's to celebrating the Fedora!!!!!!
