Hats Off: 13 Striking Headpieces from Couture Shows

Seasoned couturiers and milliners Philip Treacy, Jean Paul Gaultier, and Christian Lacroix were among the first industry luminaries to turn heads with elaborate hats at Haute Couture Fashion Week, and have been whipping up towering headdresses and jewel-encrusted chapeaux for decades. Meanwhile, the custom serpentine headpieces and gilded skull-like masks sported by models at the recent Valentino and Maison Martin Margiela shows warrant just as much attention as the meticulously handcrafted clothes themselves. In light of the Spring 2017 couture week currently underway in Paris, we revel in the most striking headpieces seen on the haute runway.
