Dramatic, unconventional, and more than a bit coquettish, bridal hats have been the preference of some of the world’s most fashionable brides: The Duchess of Windsor wore a blue straw halo-style hat trimmed with pink and blue coq feathers, Rita Hayworth chose an enormous cartwheel, and Grace Kelly wore a Juliet cap that matched the lace of her gown.
“You can do all kinds of wonderful things with hats. They can be dramatic, romantic, whimsical, or traditional,” says Kelly Christy of Kelly Christy millinery in New York City.
