Hotter with Hats?
Kutcher's headgear of choice? The trendy trucker cap. "He doesn't take so much care of his hair, so this is definitely a good look to just throw on," says New York City-based hat designer Eugenia Kim, who recently launched a men's line (her fans include Usher and Johnny Depp).
Depp likes to top off his style with a little whimsy. "He knows how to wear a hat right, so that it flips up on one side and is very flattering with his cheekbones," says Kim. Plus, "he has such an innocent look, and the fedora's a hat that gives a little bit of attitude."
The baby-faced singer may be trying to toughen up his image with a military-style cap, but Kim says his efforts backfired: "He almost looks prettier with it on!" (Her suggestion: "If it were slightly more boxy, I think it would work better with his jawline.")
Like his wife, Madonna, Ritchie has an affinity for the old-fashioned newsboy cap. "He looks really young with the hat on, like a little Oliver Twist," says Kim. "He looks so English – but he looks cute either way."
Diggs's dapper homburg-style hat "is a huge thing in hip-hop," says Kim. "He looks more street, he looks like he has more attitude – but the hat could really work for him if it slipped down on one side a little bit more."
He may be from Fresno, Calif., but Mr. Britney Spears shows his New York City pride in a Yankees cap that appears to be brand new. "He just bought that hat and put it on," says Kim of Federline's flat-brimmed topper. "It's not worn in."
Chesney's chapeau does more than hide his shiny pate. "The cowboy hat is like a facelift, because you have the brim coming from the sides up, so that naturally lifts up your face," says Kim. "Plus it shades just the right points – it's like eye shadow for men."
"He really looks like a thug," says Kim of the That '70s Show actor's appearance in a tight-fitting skullcap. Except for one thing: "He has a round face, and the hat is accentuating the top, round part of his head, so his face looks a little chubby."
"I think the doo-rag works for him," says Kim of the rapper's scarf-cap combo. "The beauty of caps in general is you have to make them work for your individual style." Also winning Fitty points? "He's wearing his hat asymmetrically, which is very flattering."
The die-hard Boston Red Sox fan supports his favorite team on his hat (among other garments). "He looks a little more comfortable with the cap – it's sort of his post-frat-boy look," says Kim. "But he has really good hair, so he could go with or without."
