Haute Hats n Old Hollywood

Myrna Loy and William Powell light up the silver screen with their chemistry. It’s their witty one liners that bring Nick and Nora Charles alive & their facial expressions that add the sizzle. However, for me it’s the hats that take the spotlight.

Myrna Loy looked divine in sexy humorous haute hats. You have to wear it and not let it wear you.

She’s comfortable looking high style and her hats top off her on screen style. I love these 1930 style hats she wore in Thin Man movies(all prints for sale on eBay). The skimming but head hugging styles are a lovely look. I usually love perch styles but these types of fashion hats really emaniate an understated sex appeal which was Loy’s appeal. A bit houghty and mischievous suited Myrna Loy and these styles of hats were an extension of her & the character.
