STYLE ICONS OF
Sarah Jessica Parker and her Sex and The City character Carrie Bradshaw have single handedly brought fascinators and big statement hair pieces back to be chic and sexy for women of all ages!
Blake Livelys character in the show Gossip Girl have shined the spotlight on fun hair accessories for girls everywhere, making them fun cool and hip again! Some call her "The New Carrie Bradshaw" for today's teen girls!
The Newest Face of the Fascinator
Today in our history, if you were to show a picture of a fascinator hat to a person on the street and ask them to "name a well known person who wears these" 9 times out of 10 they would say Kate Middleton. Or as she is now called The Dutchess of Cambridge. She has put her "stamp" on these hats, as did Jackie Kennedy did with The Pillbox Hat many years ago. She has put a fun fresh twist on a classic look. I'm guessing in our future history books, you will see images of her, and she will be wearing the hats she has made so popular!
