this image from Fritz Lang's
Metropolis. Created in 1927,
this German classic portrays a
futuristic world where rampant
industrialization crushes those
who keep it running. But that's
not what fascinated me.
Look at that headdress!
heroine transformed into an evil robot.
One of my most favorite films, that day
I was mesmerized by the fabulous head
pieces Brigitte wore throughout the film.
Inspired, I hunted the web and found a
plethora of over the top "toppers" from
the teens through today. Some magical,
others funny, and a few beyond ugly.
Enjoy my flight of fancy and
escape your mundane Monday!
