Bad hair days are out. Turbans are in. But will the public welcome them?
According to a FOX News report, designers such as Ralph Lauren, Marc Jacobs, and Prada are offering fashionable turbans with a whopping $700 price tag. And Prince, J-Lo, Katie Holmes, and Mendes are donning them for illustrious events....
Turbans were very popular in the flapper era, but were also worn into the '40s, '50s, and '60s by famous stars like Joan Crawford and Ava Gardner.
For centuries, men and women from many different Middle Eastern, Islamic, and Central and South Asian cultures have worn turbans. But since the 9/11 attacks, some tuban-wearing foreigners have been attacked, the attackers thinking they were turban-wearing Muslims, when in fact the victims were turban-wearing "Skihs." [sic]
The former style director for E! Networks, Elycia Rubin, told FOX News, that turban wearers "need to be careful not to offend people for whom turbans have religious or cultural significance." [Link]
