Kentucky Derby Museum chooses Gena Conti Millinery for the 2005 prestigious Hat Exhibit

"C.DeVil” is a one-of-a-kind chapeau.
This hat is SOLD

This hat is hand blocked from 4 layers of imported bleached sinamay and is completely hand sewn. The sultry curved brim is covered with pleated, off white horsehair (not to worry – it’s synthetic). Both brim and crown are draped with black chenille dotted white Russian veiling.

Antique patent straw embroidered band circles the crown. Vintage, black patent straw bows and feather wing also adorn this hat. Complementing feathers of black and white stripped hackle and curled red rhea tail circle the front and side of “C.DeVil.”

“She’s our tribute to the dramatic and stylish cartoon character, Cruella DeVil, as we imagine her sauntering through the Churchill Downs’ Millionaire’s Row !”
