Style Icon, inspiration, Carmen Miranda!

Carmen Miranda, Portuguese-born Brazilian samba singer, Broadway actress and movie star popular in the 1940s and 1950s. She was, by some accounts, the highest-earning woman in the United States and recognized for her signature fruit hat outfit that she wore in the 1943 movie The Gang's All Here.

Here's some of her outfits and hats I really adore!


  1. I love her, I absolutely love her! It's kind of silly of me, but I love to be brazilian because of her (well, not only because of her). I've read her biography, written by Ruy Castro. If you find it in english read it! It's her best biography, in my opinion!

  2. Carmen Miranda is so much fun and she was just beautiful ! Thanks for the great images !
