The turban has been around a loooong time, had a resurgence in the late '60s and early '70s when Elizabeth Taylor and Marisa Berenson showed how cool they could be, and is once again making a comeback. SJP looked glam in SATC2, Moschino showed them on the runway, Arlenis Sosa sizzled in a swimsuit/turban combo, and we spotted this navy and brown spotted turban from Anthropologie ($178), with which we promptly fell in love. We think it would look ultra chic with a fitted sheath dress, black shades, and a red lip. What's your opinion?
Not too long ago on The Late Show With David Letterman, guest Jennifer Garner revealed that she used to run a lucrative scrunchie business back in college. This got me thinking about these vintage (and oft-mocked) ponytail holders. Just exactly where did they come from, and who used to — or still does — wear them anyway? Find out this and more, when you read on.
Ever since the royal wedding and even the recent Kentucky Derby, fascinators have captured the attention of people everywhere. Not only are they stylish accessories, but depending on their design, they can add instant personality to any ensemble.
I recently came upon Etsyer HeartFeltByAviva's shop, which features all sorts of whimsical fascinators and headbands you'll likely adore upon first sight. Better yet, 10 percent of all the proceeds from the sales of the crafter's handmade head-toppers go to charity. Peep through to check out the line, and then tell us: which one is your favorite?
Today's royal wedding had everyone excited to see what Kate, her bridesmaids, and royal relatives would wear from head to toe.

Kate Middleton is known for her long brunette hair, which she often complements with a wide array of fascinators and intricate hats. While some are more over the top than others, let's take a look back at the many fascinating hair accessories of the princess-to-be.
The Fall 2011 Alexander McQueen show had some of the most exciting hair in all of Paris Fashion Week, with models' heads all but concealed beneath an armor of large metal barrettes. As with most things McQueen, the look was equal parts medieval romance and dark modernity. Get a 360-degree view of how stylists put the barrettes together, and marvel at just how many hair accessories they used.
If you remember Eliza Doolittle's debut at Royal Ascot in My Fair Lady, then you know all about this classiest (and flashiest) of British horse races. Ascot is famous for its hats, but these days at the UK race, outlandish fascinators and other wild headpieces are much more in vogue. It kicked off earlier this week, so to celebrate, we've put together 10 of the most creative and dramatic pieces of headgear from the opening day. Check out my favourite ones now.
