The Shoe-Shaped Hat That Got Away
A stiletto-shaped hat Bill Cunningham created for the late Anna Piaggi was stolen from an exhibit of her hats in Milan during Milan Fashion Week. Piaggi's nephew Stefano Piaggi told WWD, "We tried to keep this unpleasant event secret until the end of the exhibition, but it's leaking out. We reported the theft, but we didn't get any news yet."
The hat, which Cunningham made in the '70s, was taken the last weekend of September. The rest of the show, entitled Hat-ology, will go on until Nov. 20.
