When Nicolas Ghesquière sent his now infamous visor hats down Balenciaga’s Spring/Summer 2012 runway I wasn’t expecting to see many celebrities wearing them. Lady Gaga and Anna Dello Russo are two of the only women in the public eye that spring to mind when you suggest an over-the-top hat that’s drawn many comparisons to Darth Vader. But Emily Blunt gave the look a go in Time magazine’s Style + Design section. Perhaps she was channelling her Devil Wears Prada alter ego that day… Do you think she wears it well? I like it a lot.
I’m hoping we’ll see a few more stars rock the “Darth Vader” hat, now that Emily has given it the celebrity seal of approval. Who would you like to see wearing the hat next? And so far do you think the visor hat has looked best on the runway, fashion editor or celebrity?
