• Short Summary

    Great shots of women in the right and wrong hats for their face shapes.

  • Description

    Titles read: "HOW TO CHOOSE A HAT!".

    London.

    Women in a milliner's salon try on hats. One woman is assisted by millinery expert Gina Davies.

    We then see various shots showing how to choose a hat to suit different face shapes. A black Flemish bonnet is wrong on a narrow oval face but suits a rounder face. A black postilion hat is too heavy for a narrow forehead and chin. A 1910 hat with quill trimming suits the same face.

    A 'square-jawed wearer' wears a fuzzy hat. Gina changes it for a halo bonnet with flowers at the sides and veiling - it does look much better!
