Sarah Jessica Parker Harper’s Bazaar

DEJA VIEW?: The September Harper’s Bazaar had some people seeing double. In the edition sent to subscribers, Sarah Jessica Parker, shot in profile, wears an enormous, $1,200 feathered headdress by Ellen Christine Couture. The image seemed familiar because just a few months earlier Vogue produced a scrapbook of images and lists, a special newsstand edition, dedicated to the Costume Institute gala. On that cover, Parker, shot on the red carpet in profile, again wore a headpiece, that time a mohawk-inspired Philip Treacy.

Fashion magazines duplicate each other all time — how else to explain the ubiquity of One Direction covers lately? — but this seemed like an especially accelerated homage. Not so, says Bazaar — Vogue had nothing to do with it. Hats are just Bazaar’s accessory du jour.

“We love a headpiece,” said Laura Brown, executive editor, special projects. “Sarah Jessica joins Gwen Stefani [last September], Kate Hudson [October] and Gwyneth Paltrow [May], all cool cats in hats on our cover in the last year.”

Of course, Vogue also slapped a wide-brim hat on Stefani in January and a cloche on Carey Mulligan in May. No doubt the hat arms race between the two titles will continue unabated for the foreseeable future, but it seems appropriate at this time to ask readers, to borrow a line from Stephen Sondheim: Does anyone still wear a hat?
