Thandie Newton's Weird Hat, If You Can Call It That

Thandie Newton's Weird Hat, If You Can Call It That

Mad Hatter Thandie Newton (in Chanel) gives a special touch of Christmas magic at the VIP opening of the Somerset House Ice Rink at London’s Somerset House on Tuesday evening.

The 35-year-old British actress kept it cute in a black trench, cute red shoes and a matching Chanel clutch.

But what is that thing on her head??

People are calling it a “feathered headpiece” but was it really necessary — YAY or NAY?

UPDATE: It’s a whimsical Philip Treacy hat.

    Jared you’re so cheeky ha ha ha !!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Thandie is cute but I don’t like this oufit on her, the shoes are nice thought.
    I don’t really know what is that thing on her head, but don’t forget she’s british, and british like to wear strange hats.

  • Helena

    I think the hat goes with the outfit, if anything looks weird it’s the random red shoes.

  • lauren

    she’s so pretty she can get away with it. Anyone else would look like an idiot though.

  • Rita

    too avant garde.

  • alexandria

    hate the hat, love the shoes

  • ohmy

    Looks like a giant bush/caterpillar stuck to her hair.

  • seb

    No, i actually do like the hat… it’s probably a Phillip Tracey and SUPER PRICEY! Not the kind of hat that one normally wear.

  • seb

  • Dannie

    it’s to take the attention off the shoes.

  • anonymous

    The Brits are famous for their eclectic hats. Have you ever seen pics of the Queens annual horse race; this hat is tame?. They are definitely not afraid to take it up a notch. She looks beautiful though.

  • fashionata

    She looks gorgeous but what is she wearing? I just don’t like the coat and the hat.
    She looks much younger than 35, her skin is absolutely flawless.

  • anna

    Her hat is cute, check for british hats pix!

  • The Narcissist

    Yay for being daring. The whole outfit is very…Tim Burton

  • ihavenolife

    ostrich in red patent heels. :lol:

  • Leni

    STRANGE. Not the right outfit and the shoes to go with that head dress. She looks like she is ready for a tribal dance.

  • Goya Babe

    She looks dreadful! hat possessed her is she only getting income from these ridiculous fashion houses and questionable shop “openings?” Is bubblegum flavoured vodka launching next? Doesn’t her “director” husband bring home any bacon?

  • lily

    I agree with you #26 she looks like a zombie.

  • angelina_mmm

    I like it
    she is beautiful

  • mietze007

    looks great, love the hat.

  • lila

    Beautiful face and nice make up but the outfit is blah.

  • chas

    She is hot. No ring? Is she married?

  • VIP

    yes she’s married and she has two daughters, sorry…………..

  • rady22

    hi, guys, nice discussion, Thanksgiving Day is coming, would you love to try something new to celebrate this great holiday? How about interracial hot dating? so many singles are there….you will be surprised…

  • Whatthe?!?!?

    That is an alien space probe, stuck in her head. It secretes some kind of an enzyme that prevents her from feeling pain. Thankfully, she is unaware that it is even there.
