    An extremely rare ‘bicorne,’ or 2-pointed hat, that was worn by Napoleon at the battle of Waterloo was sold at auction in France for $325,000 on Monday. The hat went under the hammer for €280,000 ($325,052) at Lyon-based auction house De Baecque. The bicorne had a pre-sale estimate of €30,000 to €40,000 ($34,881 to $46,441). De Baecque told Fox News that the hat was bought by a private European collector who is "passionate" about the period of the First French Empire. The bloody battle of Waterloo, fought on June 18, 1815, saw Napoleon’s forces defeated by a British-led allied army....

    Hillary Clinton says she’s “still” not over the 2016 election, and she showed it Sunday during a speech at Yale — cracking a joke about Kremlin interference and busting out a large Russian hat to boot. “If you can’t beat them, join them,” Clinton quipped. The jab came during her commencement speech at Yale’s Class Day. Keeping up with the university’s longstanding tradition of bringing an “over the top hat” to the ceremony, Clinton pulled out a black Ushanka and playfully went to put it on. “I see looking out at you that you are following the tradition of over-the-top...

    Hillary Clinton took subtle jabs at President Trump during her Class Day speech at Yale, which she began by pulling out a Russian hat in an apparent reference to the ongoing investigation into Russian election meddling. The former secretary of State and 2016 Democratic presidential nominee noted the over-the-top hats students traditionally wear during Yale's Class Day and said she "brought a hat too." "A Russian hat," Clinton said on Sunday while showing the laughing crowd an Ushanka hat. "If you can't beat them, join them," she added.

Eugenior Joseph, 22, was reportedly dining with his girlfriend’s family at the Dadeland Mall location of the restaurant on Mother’s Day. His MAGA hat allegedly drew the attention of a female staff member, who gathered her co-workers to confront him, a witness told the site. The witness further claims about a dozen of those employees circled his table, pointing fingers.

    Billy the Kid is a tourist draw in parts of New Mexico. Now a New Mexico hat-maker is hoping to capitalize on the outlaw’s fashion sense, namely his hat. The legend of Billy the Kid dates back more than a century, and in every picture that has surfaced of the cowboy there’s been one thing in common, his hat. “A lot of people thought that the hat he was wearing was a prop that the photographer gave him,” Kenny Bratcher said, “but a guy like Billy the Kid, I think would’ve worn his own hat.” Kenny Bratcher has been making...

    TEL AVIV – Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke on Friday flipped his middle finger at a group of pro-Palestinian protesters at a gig in Glasgow, Scotland who were calling for the band to cancel its upcoming gig in Tel Aviv. Activists from Glasgow Palestine Action, Glasgow Palestine Solidarity Campaign and Radiohead Fans for Palestine demonstrated outside the festival prior to the band’s performance. During the performance itself, Palestinian flags were waved from the crowd, prompting Yorke to exclaim no less than four times the phrase “some f**king people!” into the microphone before reportedly flipping off the flag wavers. Radiohead has come...

    President Trump stopped to retrieve the hat of a Marine guard Saturday evening after the wind blew it off his head. The wind then blew the hat right off again. The moment happened as Trump was about to board Marine One upon his return to the U.S. after attending the G-20 summit in Hamburg, Germany. Moments earlier the president departed Air Force One at Joint Base Andrews with his wife Melania. (VIDEO AT STORY LINK)

    Joining her father President Donald Trump on his trip through the Middle East, Ivanka Trump has dressed more modestly than usual, and that streak has continued during their visit to Israel. The first daughter was photographed wearing a rarely seen accessory (at least on her): a hat. She wore the small navy hat perched on one side on her head, with a headband securing the velvet topper. Her hair was styled in a soft chignon at the nape of her neck. Hats are worn by Orthodox Jewish women following the concept of Tzniut, which is Hebrew for modesty or humility...

    An old-school, wide-brimmed rope hat — some in white and navy, others in red and white — has seemingly become the ironic must-have fashion accessory of the summer. It is the “Make America Great Again” campaign hat first worn in July by Donald J. Trump in Laredo, Tex., and since spotted on hipsters from Williamsburg, Brooklyn, to the Silver Lake district of Los Angeles and in the football locker of Tom Brady, not to mention on the heads of the hundreds of Trump loyalists at his rallies. “I was certainly surprised to the extent it caught on,” Mr. Trump said...

    Donald Trump visited the Mexican border yesterday to try and mend fences with Hispanics while still looking tough on illegal immigration following his comments that Mexican illegal immigrants included 'rapists' and 'murderers'. But all the talk on Twitter was of the white baseball cap sported by the Republican candidate for president - which featured his campaign slogan 'Make America Great Again'.

    Andy's mom has always been a bit of an enigma. In the first Toy Story, we barely even saw her face. That's all fine because throughout the movies, the real focus has been on Andy and the love he has for those toys. But this is Pixar, and it stands to reason that there is more than meets the eye when it comes to the Davis family (Andy's last name). In order to understand who Ms. Davis really is, we have to start with something seemingly simple: a hat. In the picture below, you see Andy's cowboy hat that...

    ... So what happened? Why did guys stop wearing headgear in midcentury America? The turning point, most people say, was John F. Kennedy's inauguration. Before Kennedy, all presidents wore top hats on their first day at work. Kennedy brought one, but hardly ever put it on. Fashionistas say Kennedy, one of our most charismatic presidents, made hats un-happen. And, chronologically speaking, after JFK, guys everywhere, even balding ones like astronaut John Glenn, went topless. But I am the son of a hat designer. And my father, Allen S. Krulwich, had a different explanation. The president who de-hatted America, he thought,...

    Remember the laughs -- and gasps -- that greeted Princess Beatrice when she showed up for the royal wedding wearing that, well, unusual hat? Well now the young royal is getting the last laugh. Beatrice, 22, put the blush-colored "fascinator" up for auction on eBay, and it's now been snapped up by an anonymous bidder -- for $130,000! According to People, the princess is donating the cash to two charities: UNICEF and Children in Crisis, the later of which was started by Beatrice's mother Sarah Ferguson (a.k.a. "Fergie," the Duchess of York) to provide education to children in some of...

    LONDON — The eye-popping hat worn by Princess Beatrice at Britain's royal wedding is to be auctioned to raise money for charity, Buckingham Palace said Thursday. The famous creation — which some said looked like antlers— will be sold on eBay with the proceeds to go to the charities UNICEF and Children in Crisis. The hat was the handiwork of Britain's leading milliner, Philip Treacy, who designed many of the ladies' hats worn at the April 29 nuptials of Prince William and Kate Middleton, now known as the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. The unusual design of the beige hat...
