Now on to the Roaring Twenties. This week's pic once again comes from Claire Byers, whose ever-adorable but still got attitude boys' caps were featured in our last Fab Hat post. Intriguingly, Claire is the only one sans-headwear in this group photo, but no matter. The picture is still all-around hat-tastic!

Performer Madeleine, looking the bee's knees in men's haberdashery & flirty fringe frock (far right), had this to say about her chapeau of choice & why hats are so divine:
"I must say in my case the hat was NECESSARY so that you didn't see the wig was actually an insane 80's hairstyle that a man wore to play a woman in drag in a show I did.
Hats...a great statement or just a way to cover what's happening with your hair."
Hah! You can't argue with Madeleine's logic.
Even the most dashing hat can serve a practical purpose.
