|Detail of Howell Conant photo of Grace Kelly, 1956. Drop dead gorgeous!|
This is how you do it.
The above photo is a detail of a picture by Howell Conant from the book Grace of her looking so very beautiful the day she pulled into the harbor in Monaco, to meet and marry her prince and become a princess. Conant says in the book that he thought the hat looked great and told Grace as much, but was embarrassed to later learn the Monégaques complained that they couldn’t see her face. I’m with Conant on this one. Grace looks amazing in this combination of hat and glasses.
Consider this your invitation to join Adrienne and me in our “How I Wear My: Hat” roundup by sending me a picture of yourself in a hat by November 1.
How do you wear a hat?
Completely unrelated side note: By time you read this we may have no power in NYC because of Hurricane Sandy. If this is the case I will publish the post as soon as I can! If you are in the way of this storm, stay safe.
