Sophia says: it’s all about understatement.


  1. I want one just like Sophia’s, but sparklier. And pink.

  3. Do my eyes deceive me? Is that a Halston turban???

  6. Plummy, WHAT movie is the Divine Sophia shot from? I want the entire outfit! (A Friday note: I make turbans. And I wear ’em.)

  7. LaBellaDonna, I *think* that scene is from the film ‘Lady L’. I really dig turbans on other people, but me, I have neither the nerve nor the cheekbones to pull one off. Sigh.

  8. Pshaw! Maggiethecat, if you love the turban, the turban you may have! Perhaps not the one that is shown, but a turban, nonetheless! I have no cheekbones, either, but that does not leap to mind when I wear a turban. Remember that you can drape (and stitch, which I realize turns it into a “hat,” since a “turban” is actually draped each time it’s worn, but a “hat” stays where you want it to stay) that turban to suit YOUR features, and you can decorate it in a way that pleases YOU. If you are anxious and/or nervous, practice in the privacy of your own bedroom. Practice with a scarf or two; wrap it around a base, which can be ANYTHING, including a (shudder) baseball cap. You can wrap it high, or wide; you can wrap it with ethnic scarves, plain scarves, sparkly scarves (for “scarves,” substitute “bits of leftover fabric”), one or two or more scarves.

    You can wear a turban!
