Kentucky Derby Museum chooses Gena Conti Millinery for the
2005 prestigious Hat Exhibit
"C.DeVil” is a one-of-a-kind
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 !”
