Porter Woodruff created an elegant portrait showcasing an extraordinary hat. A woman rests her arms on the back of a chair, angling her head to reveal Franklin Simon's deep purple velvet hat accented with three curled ostrich feathers. The graceful, moody illustration appeared in the December 15, 1931, Vogue.
