Paulettes fame was international: her exquisite creations featured regularly on the pages of Vogue and Harpers Bazaar , and crowned the heads of the rich and famous across the globe, among them Greta Garbo, Marlene Dietrich, Audrey Hepburn, Rita Hayworth, Princess Grace of Monaco and the Duchess of Windsor. She collaborated with Cecil Beaton on the award-winning hats for My Fair Lady and Gigi, and over the course of her long career designed headwear for such legendary Paris couturiers as Pierre Balmain, Pierre Cardin, Emmanuel Ungaro and Thierry Mugler. A fascinating character and a true fashion pioneer, she is a source of inspiration for some of the worlds most important milliners today, including Stephen Jones, who has contributed a foreword.

Although a hat may be designed for the purpose of practicality or aesthetics, it is part of a complex interplay of wider cultural meanings. Throughout history hats have played a significant role in expressing and revealing notions of class, gender, authority, fashion and etiquette. By examining the consumption and production of hats from the 18th century to the present day, this book explores their significance as markers of social and cultural change. Taking a thematic approach, Clair Hughes charts how headgear during the modern era has been shaped by status, gender and necessity. Using case studies such as the bowler hat, which has moved up and down classes and professions, Hughes reveals that although a hat might seem bound to its status and context, it is as susceptible to subversion and reinvention as the society which creates it. From the transition of pilots' helmets from practical headgear to fashion items, to the Slouch hat and the baseball cap, hats have responded to cultural or political movements, often becoming conscious displays of identity and social allegiance. Drawing from material and historical research as well as depictions in art, literature and film, Hughes provides a fascinating insight into hats as a visible performance of social values and culture.
