In a recent Toronto Sun article, Christina Hendricks was asked if she has experienced any 1960s fashion epiphanies through her role as Joan Harris, the head-turning office manager at Sterling Cooper, on the wildly popular TV drama, Mad Men.
Hendricks replied that she loves hats and in particular that she loves men in hats. She was also quoted as saying that “Don Draper’s wide-brimmed fedora looks great on him.”
Sun columnist and editor Bill Harris then wrote the line in the article that’s closest to my heart (which in no way discounts his opener: “It’s the Don of a new era”):
That sound you hear isn’t thunder, it’s a stampede of men desperately trying to find a chapeau shop that sells something other than baseball caps.
Hendricks is not speaking as her Mad Men character when she talks about her love of hats. She commented in the article that her husband, actor Geoffrey Arend, likes hats too, saying that “he wears a little bowler” and added that “he looks very good in a bowler.”
I’ve always liked that Christina Hendricks. She’s gorgeous, talented and has got very good taste!
