Almost every actor on Broadway this season is wearing an elaborate or opulent hat. For costume designers, their head piece creativity (from movable goldfish to Beanie Baby-topped hats) knew no bounds in plays from revivalist "Hello, Dolly!" and "Little Foxes," to newcomers "Amelie" and "Anastasia."
For example, icon Bette Midler wears this 30-inch-wide hat made of wire, beading and burnt ostrich feathers dyed red from designer Rodney Gordon in "Hello, Dolly!" during the revival play’s signature song. Fun fact: This is just one of 93 women’s hats in the musical.
Check out a number of other hats appearing on Broadway this season in the slideshow below.
