Last week we had our first edition of hat Yay or Nays. The panel was torn! But in the end Marie Dauncey and her poodle hair were rewarded with a Yay. Although the curly powdered hair was very much in style, Marie's was very curiously styled for her portrait. I suppose it was all about the hat when she considered her outfit! Now let's journey to Spain for our next hat selection
Vicente López paints the Duquessa de Nájera (1795) as she adds a hint of bold color to the otherwise subtle clothing pallet via her hat. Yay or Nay?
