1963 Sally Victor Hat

From the March 15, 1963 issue of Vogue magazine. This turban hat, by Sally Victor, has swathes of red and gold velvet intertwined in the folds of white chiffon.

You'll notice that with dramatic hats like this and the Lilly Dache posted yesterday, the models' hair is pulled away from the face and tight to the head. They are each wearing dramatic make-up and statement earrings, which are needed to offset the high voltage drama of the hats.

Get the look with this late 1950's red satin cocktail turban, now available in our EBay store. Click the picture to see the listing.

I love vintage hats, can you tell?
