Hugh Jackman named the best hat wearer

MUMBAI: Wolverine star Hugh Jackman has been named the winner of this year’s Male Celebrity Hat Wearers list, beating Sir Sean Connery, Daniel Day Lewis, Jonny Depp, and Peter Andre to the title.

The chart is produced by promotional consortium Luton First with the town’s famous millinery and hat-making industry.

"Hugh Jackman’s outback hat, worn in the film Australia, not only achieved instant fame on the big screen but also popularized the look for men’s casual wear generally” said Philip Wright, of Luton milliners Walter Wright chart.

"Mr Jackman has also been seen sporting some stylish trilby and pork pie hats off screen."

While in the female celebrity’s category, Carla Bruni was named ‘best hat wearer’. The Queen, with her second-place title, was noticed for her fur-look style hat worn to the unveiling of the memorial statue of the Queen Mother in February. The Queen beat fashionistas Madonna and Victoria Beckham, who appeared in fourth and fifth places respectively. The Countess of Wessex took third place in the chart.

Philip said celebrities were continuing to set international trends, wearing statement hats.
