Wow! Talk about cool and random! According to Glamour magazine, Gwen, along with Cameron Diaz and Aretha Franklin, are being inducted into the Headware Hall of Fame for 2010… who knew there was such a thing! She’s getting the honor for always being in style and just being herself. Congratulations to Gwen — she deserves it!
Glamour — The Headwear Association (yep, really) announced its inductees into the “Headwear Hall of Fame” this morning, and the Queen of Soul was among those honored for being “current day hat wearers as well as early influencers that have had a positive impact on the evolution of hat wearing and headwear fashion.” We don’t think there’s a more deserving candidate–the inauguration hat (which was eventually pulled from one of a dozen versions created especially for her!) was only one shining example of her ability to be fabulous in hot headwear.
Rounding out the female inductees is Gwen Stefani, who has clearly never met a statement-making accessory she couldn’t conquer.
The rest of the list is comprised of Ne-Yo, Payne Stewart, and Carlos Santana. Courtney Bush, president of the Headwear Association, said, “Every year we honor those in the public eye that are frequently seen in their daily lives wearing fashionable and trend-setting hats. From Stewartâ€™s ivy caps on the links to Arethaâ€™s scene stealing giant bow hat at Obamaâ€™s presidential inauguration to Santanaâ€™s and Ne-Yoâ€™s ubiquitous fedora or Cameron and Gwenâ€™s ever changing fashion-forward choices, we recognize current and past hat enthusiasts for their positive influence and hat-wearing style.â€ Past inductees include Jackie Kennedy, Johnny Depp, Princess Diana (do tiaras really count?!), Jennifer Lopez, and Sarah Jessica Parker. This year’s winners will be formally inducted at a gala dinner in March.
