|Norma Desmond with Veil in Sunset Blvd.|
|Elegance Magazine, 1967|
But then who could forget this image of Jackie Kennedy in her black veil at her husband's funeral? This image is a vivid one for all of us~
And now enter the burka. That took all of the fun out of the veil for me. Gone was the feminine mystique of it all--now it is the paradigm of female repression. And wouldn't you just love to see men wear burkas for a day??
So, in contemplating your next hat, would it be veil or no veil?
