I’m competing in the Milliners of Etsy challenge to create a hat ‘inspired by a movie’. The deadline is the 1st of June.
I love watching films so I’m loving this theme, the problem is choosing which one I want to use. This is why I need your help, please suggest a film that you think would give inspiration for a fabulous hat!
Here’s some that I like. Film-noir thrillers like ‘Dark Passage’ with Bogart and Bacall.
‘Bringing Up Baby’ with Katherine Hepburn & Carry Grant‘Some like it hot’Anything with Ginger Rogers! This is ‘It Had To Be You’.‘Bachelor Mother’‘Lady In The Dark’ (fabulous dream sequences)‘The Red Shoes’Anything directed by Alfred Hitchcock. This is ‘Rebecca’.Big number spectaculars like ‘How To Marry A Millionaire’ with Monroe, Bacall & Grable or ‘Gentlemen Prefer Blondes’ with Monroe & Jane RussellThe brilliantly disturbing ‘Whatever Happened To Baby Jane’ with Bette Davis and Joan Crawford at their acting best.
Loving the hats Giorgio Armani sent down the runway at Milan fashion week for his ready-to-wear autumn/winter 2012-13 collection. I love that 1940’s style brim that comes down over one eye, adds such mistique. Made me think of Ingrid Bergman and Humprey Bogart in Casablanca and Joan Crawford who wore alot of that style of hat.
