Race fans, hold onto your hats!

1ST PLACE – 1940S FAB

Linda Cloche, $175
“I like the classic shape,” says Cronenberg (pictured here in the winner). “It’s detailed, but not too costumey. And the blue is so pretty.” Thanks to Angelina Jolie vehicle Changeling, this classic hat’s got legs again. “There’s a reason she looks so good in that movie,” says Cronenberg.

VINTAGE VALUE

Patent Flower on Black & White, $32
This 1980s-era hat calls to mind days at the races. Think Julia Roberts. “I have issues with big flowers, but you sold me with Pretty Woman,” says Cronenberg.

MAD HATTER

Olive Branch, by Frank Olive, $169
Cronenberg loves the unusual Alice in Wonderland shape of this topper. “And the feathers. It’s intricate, but it doesn’t overpower.”
