Continuing on the same note as my previous post on floppy hats, I dedicate this post to my love of berets. I like the diverseness of the beret. One can look like an innocent Parisian ingenue, or a badass revolutionary (see: Patty Hearst, circa 1974).
Arguably the look that started it all: Faye Dunaway in 1967's Bonnie and Clyde. This crook's look wasn't complete without a fantastic felt topper over her honey-colored bob.
Jane Asher (left) and Pattie Boyd both sported berets when in the company of their Beatle boys. Coincidentally, both of the girls wore the hat on their travels to India.
French icon of sex, song, and style Brigitte Bardot pulled off the equally-as-iconic French accessory without a hitch.
Another lovely French actress, Catherine Deneuve, looks positively chic in her knit beret atop her cropped hair.
Gorgeous gamine Audrey Hepburn poses for some early fashion shots with a white beret resting on top of her head.
Supermodel Agyness Deyn matches her beret to her gloves, while Alexa Chung, Peaches Geldof, and Michelle Williams sport the look for some added spunk to their outfits. Kirsten Dunst and Blake Lively (as her GG character Serena) both choose berets of the pink variety.
Alicia Silverstone stars as Cher Horowitz, the most fashionable girl in school, in the 90s classic Clueless, so naturally she would sport a beret on several occasions throughout the film.
Groupie-turned-singer/songwriter Bebe Buell poses in a beret for an earthy photoshoot during the mid-1970s.
Except for the whole impregnanted-by-Satan thing, things look pretty great for Rosemary Woodhouse (Mia Farrow) in Rosemary's Baby, in a plaid beret and matching scarf.
Queen of punk rock Debbie Harry adds an element of feminine sweetness to her otherwise rocker looks.
Marilyn Monroe perfectly captures the Parisian essence of the cafe scene during Gentlemen Prefer Blondes when she and Jane Russell's characters take a rest at a French bistro to sing "When Love Goes Wrong, Nothing Goes Right."
Screen legend Ingrid Bergman is captured during a candid moment with her Gaslight costar Charles Boyer and sporting a beret.
Photographed several times in a beret, each of different colors, chanteuse France Gall had an affinity for these floppy felt hats.
An eleven-year-old Anna Paquin accepts the Academy Award in a blue beret and matching dress.
Nicole Richie, Zooey Deschanel, Eva Green (in The Dreamers), and Jenny Lewis each have a love affair with red berets.
