This illustration of a woman modeling the newest hat by Rose Descat appeared in the March 2, 1929, Vogue. The Chinese Bangkok straw style has a wide band and relaxed (if not floppy) brim. It is nicely offset by her print blouse, beaded necklace, and drop earrings. Artist Porter Woodruff creates shallow shadows in the background, which combined with her closed eyes endow this work with a snapshot quality.
