Historic Hat Wearers - Evelyn Tripp

image source: http://womeninblackandwhite.com
So whilst on one of my recent quest to find new treasure troves of  millinery inspiration I came across this image of Evelyn Tripp shot by Irvine Penn. Now I’m not sure why I had never heard of Evelyn Tripp before but this image grabbed my attention not only because of the wonderful hat Evelyn wore but because her features were so beautifully defined.

 On further rummaging around the internet I realised I had come across a historically great hat wearer!

I know that these beautiful vintage magazine images of Evelyn Tripp wearing an array of gorgeous  swoon worthy clothes will keep me inspired for hours so I just wanted to share a few of my favourites with you.

I think what makes the images appeal to me so much is the easy nature in which Evelyn Tripp wore hats. They seem so natural on her. Nowadays so many people say that they don’t feel they can wear a hat and many more just leave them for special occasions and events I love finding images of hat wearers past and present that wear hats effortlessly and feel confident in doing so whatever the occasion.

 I found so many other images of Evelyn that i couldn't share them all here, it amazed me to see the breadth of publications and work that Evelyn did, from being shot by world famous photographers  and appearing on the cover of Vogue to modelling for  sewing and knitting patterns. Somehow I can't see the likes of Kate Moss or Jourdan Dunn doing the same these days.
Anyway I hope you all enjoyed my finds. I'm thinking of putting together a pinterst board of all my other lovely images I found on my search, so I'll post the link if I do.
Have a great week xxx
