Hats are back, thanks to Lady Gaga, Duchess Kate and other celebs

July 29, 2012 |  6:00 am


Hats may once have seemed like a wardrobe staple of the past — an accessory reserved for the ladies of an era when no one left home without a proper head covering.

Hats have been a tenet of British style for decades, and here in the U.S. they are making a comeback. Modern millinery seems to have a definite place in L.A.'s urban jungle as style-savvy men and women, the royal set from across the pond (including the Duchess of Cambridge) and celebrities such as Lady Gaga are bringing a variety of headpieces back into pop culture.

In Sunday's Image section, find out more about the status of the hat, and meet a couple of L.A.'s creative milliners.
