  1. Now that’s a lot of hat. It rather dwarves the diminutive Margaret doesn’t it. I normally like her 60s style, but this doesn’t do it for me. It’s a forerunner of her 90’s garden on the heads isn’t it.

  2. In the first photo she has such a stunning smile and the sunny yellow is really set off by her dark hair. She was truly beautiful and this hat though dated to us today was vogue at the time.

    • I do love that shade on her, but there should be a crimes against millinery feature, where this could be a contender!

  3. On one hand, yikes! On the other hand, I totally remember when people wore things like that, the more outrageous the better – a fashion trend that hopefully will not return!
