Inspired by Master and….Bande à part (1964)

Inspired by Master and....Bande à part (1964)

dievca was delighted and inspired by Master’s Fedora the other morning.
What is sexier than a Woman wearing a Man’s Hat?

The word fedora comes from the title of an 1882 play by dramatist Victorien Sardou, Fédora, written for Sarah Bernhardt.  The play was first performed in the United States in 1889. Bernhardt played Princess Fédora, the heroine of the play. During the play, Bernhardt, a notorious cross-dresser, wore a center-creased, soft brimmed hat. It was popular for its fashion sense and its ability to protect the wearer’s head from the wind and weather.

Another example is the Cafe Scene in:

Bande à part

Bande à part (1964) – Dance scene [HD]

Anna Karina wears a Fedora Hat in a very cool and sexy way — it changes the tenor of the scene.

dievca wears hats very well, too. she went digging for her Hat Box which was hidden away in the move.
dievca found three versions of a Fedora!

Now, it would be more fun and sexier for dievca to wear Master’s Fedora, but His hat is too big for dievca’s head (too many brains?). So, she is planning a presentation outfit using something from her own array of hats.

-All black with the black Fedora and red lipstick for a Beatnik Noir look.
-White button down, Men’s tie,black wide-leg pants,black heels,black Fedora:  Kate Hepburn look.
-Brown tweed dress, brown stockings and riding boots, tan trench and the brown Fedora.
-Tan Linen suit, silk tank, silk neck scarf, brown peeptoe heels with the straw Fedora.

dievca’s wheels are spinning! Any suggestions?

 Just incase you are interested:

Godard’s “A Band Apart” dance scene in two more ways:

Start at 2:00 and watch Anna Karina’s eyes…Godard (the director/her lover…is standing a few feet away) The real-life background music in the café (you can barely hear it) is “Shake it Baby” sung by John Lee Hooker.

50 years later…the same scene with Nouvelle Vague’s music (the new music really fits!)

A huge “Thank You” to Master for truly setting me on to this post with His Fedora and His passion for Cinema. XO

PS. dievca did learn the Bande à part dance.
