Now I don't want to go dying on a beach covered in fake tan and arousing the suspicions of Hercule Poirot. But I certainly do want a hat like this crazy red number worn by Diana Rigg's character in the 1981 film version of Agatha Christie's Evil Under the Sun, don't you? In fact all Ms Rigg's headgear in the movie is lust-worthy. Just don't get me started on Poirot/Peter Ustinov's swimming get up - he looks like a demented baker.


  1. Yes, he does look exactly like a demented baker!!!

    But have always adored that red hat...and a turban is SUCH a glamourous way of hiding one's hair rollers, murder weapons, or anything else the character may have been up to...

  2. Oh I love Christie...I still have to get on that Orient Express one day...... Great hats!

  3. ooh so love the idea of the turban as nifty concealment device as well as fashion item. What's in yours?! Orient Express tickets I hope! x
