Wearing a Turban as a Fashion Statement: Fashion Do or Don't?

Various styles of turbans are worn all over the world and they are usually worn for religious reasons. In the 60s and 70s however, celebrities like Joan Crawford, Faye Dunaway and Elizabeth Taylor made it glamorous to wear a turban, much to the dismay of some religious groups.

Since then, they haven't been as trendy, which is why fashion bloggers were surprised to see Eva Mendes wearing one at the premiere for The Place Beyond the Pines. I still think Ryan Gosling is her best accessory... but what do you think of her look? Is wearing a turban a fashion do... or don't?

Even though Eva Mendes had some of the best arm candy a girl could ever ask for at the premiere of The Place Beyond the Pines in Toronto, we can´t lose focus on the fact that the beautiful Latina actress is wearing a turban on her head.

    I think she is trying to just impress the camera becaz she is with the hottest male movie star in Hollywood. She just wants all the publicity and not give Ryan an inch of the camera fame......I do agree it is a very nice color and it goes well with the outfit. If i had a choice i would drop the head wrap though and let the hot celebrity get his moment into. Ryan you a gorgeous babe. What ever your GF does, it is not going to draw attention away....\\\

    Unless you actually know how to tie the turban, and the significance of its colour!

    In the case of the Sikh (who do traditionally sport such), the meaning of the colour:
    (*) white -- ultra-religious
    (*) orange -- angry about something
    (*) any other colour except pink -- preference-only of wearer
    (*) pink -- colour-blind and/or utterly devoid of fashion-sense.

    (apt that the pic of Eva Mendes took place in Pigtown -- where bizarre is the norm)

    They don't look too bad, in my opinion, and I wouldn't judge someone for wearing them... they just aren't really my kind of thing.
