I adore this hat

I was watching Charade last night and I had this image of Audrey Hepburn wearing a crazy veiled hat and I just could not remember what movie it was from. I knew it was kind of wacky...and I knew the getup was worn to a clandestine meeting in a more obscure movie...which made me think Love in the Afternoon, no dice. Think Think Think...then it hit me! How to Steal a Million...lucky for me the hat/mask I had in mind was in all the publicity shots, I guess someone else thought it was a fabulous look too. First thing after Thanksgiving, I WILL me making myself one of these masks!

Oh man. LOVE Charade and Love in the Afternoon. Though aging, you can't pass up Gary Cooper or Cary Grant. That mask is utterly fabulous!

That beautiful mask is from the film "How to Steal A Million" - Audrey stars with the dashing Peter O'Toole - and it's hilarious. Definitely recommend this not-so-well-known film!
