This is a classic hollywood glam "wow" hat from the 1940s. This is a repost of one of my fav hats that was removed by CW because I put it (oops!) on my website after getting great feedback here. Well now it is sold and it is no longer for sale and so it can come back to CW. I love this hat and hated to see it go, although the woman who bought it loved it and looked sooo good in it I was happy that she had it. The hat is beautiful, thick and lush orange velvet with an orange velvet bow around the very flat crown. The underside of the hat is thick cream velvet. There is a little crown on the underside in orange velvet that holds the hat on the head. The hat has a designer label - Marie Clair New York. This is just such a gorgeous hat and the most amazing thing is that it is in almost mint condition with no scuffing or crushing of the velvet and no marks or stains on the cream underside of the hat, or anywhere else. An awesome hat!

    Did you post it on CW and also on a website for sale at same time? It's gorgeous and thank you for posting your lovely photos. So Rita - yet w/her hair color I doubt she would have worn this particular color. Can someone post some Rita Hayworth pictures? She was so beautiful!
