Fabulous Hats in Art That I Must Have

Ladies in art history have some fabulous hats. And I must have them. Clearly.

Nefertiti Bust
Nefertiti Bust, Thutmose, 1345 BCE

Do not even attempt to tell me it’s out of style. It’s exquisite.

A Portrait of a Woman, Lucas Cranach (the younger), 1526

Do I know how this stays on? No. Do I still want it? Yes, of course.

 

Gust of Winds, John Singer Sargent

Loose and whimsical. Just perfect for those en plein air summer days.

 

Marie Antoinette, Elisabeth Vigée Lebrun

This hat comes with a side of alienation and revolution. Is it worth it? Darling just look at it.

 

Julia, Ramon Casas

I will swirl my wine to perfection in this get-up.

The Scornful Woman, Egon Schiele, 1910

Yes. Put it in the pile. Though I must perfect that impeccable grimace before I am worthy.

 

Sarah Siddons, Gainsborough
Sarah Siddons, Thomas Gainsborough, 1785

Fabulous actress, check. Fabulous hat, double check.

 

Frida Kahlo Self Portrait with Thorn Necklace

Technically more of an accessory, but it’s fabulous. I will also have the monkey and the pissed-off hovering black cat.

 

Lady with Hat and Feather boa, Gustav Klimt

Ah, I think this is the one. But you know she doesn’t make eye contact with the servers.
