Bless you, Caroline Reboux

I really don't mind Angelina Jolie.  I think she is talented and I enjoy when she chooses roles that aren't her usual action-flick hot-chick characters, because she sure seems to do enough of those.  I haven't seen Changeling yet, but I really wanted to, mainly because I seriously got CHILLS every time I heard her scream "I want my son back!" in the trailers.  Chills.

The other reason is because of the cloche hats she wears throughout the film!

I really don't know why I am in love with these hats, but I am.  They are just so iconic of the 1920s.

I also found a modern version of these beloved hats by Still Life NYC.  They claim they have yet to find a woman who does not look fabulous in this style.  I don't typically wear hats, but if I had $300 to splurge I would definitely get one.  My favorite is the brown with the cute feathers!

p.s.  Caroline Reboux was a 19th century milliner and fashion designer and is credited with the creation of the cloche hat.

p.p.s.  My apologies for the abundance of photos, I just couldn't resist!

  1. I love all these hats. I missed the film when it came out in the cinema, but I really wanted to see it. It looked like she played the part really well. In a way I hope she wins the Oscar, just cos I love her!

  7. Angelina Jolie plays the role really well and she is one of the best actress in our genre, no doubt on that. If you've watched beyond borders, I love that film. I've never been interested on hats, though they were look good. juicy sidekick
