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?

COCOPEREZ.COM reports:
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.

    That is true... flappers where kinda cute. Somehow it didn't come off as a flea infested camel scrotum placed a top someones head.

    I suppose. Or it could just be globalism. Ethnic exposure.... that kind of thing.

    Well I've seen plenty of older hats that are modeled after turbans.

    Probably wouldn't, LOL. However, I think the turban fashion is more of a woman thing.

    I think you are right. I was just being sensationalistic about this wacky turban thing. I'm really a lefty. I'm just trying to get the right wing base all riled up.

    Maybe it ain't just your fault, though if you're part of a stereotype or secret organization. Yeah, it may be your fault?

    DO YOU THINK SHIPPING THEM OFF TO THEIR OWN TURBAN-FRIENDLY ISLAND MIGHT BE HELPFUL, OR SHOULD WE BE FORCED TO LET THEM STAY AGAINST OUR WILL AND DESTROY THIS COUNTRY FROM THE GROUND UP??

    I think they should receive some type of steep financial penalty along with a large fine.

    I'm quoting fellow sodahead Iamthemob:

    "Turbans are more cultural than religious.

    Also...they're hats. So...people can wear them."

    I completely agree with him.

    Interesting, so what does one do when they are a Women and going through Chemotherapy???

    Being a Women and Bald is not socially exceptable!...I know, I experienced it....

    I got stared at, and giggled at because one I was bald "not by choice" and wore and turban because I didn't like the wig...It was to hot!

    I think this is a really ignorant question....You wear what you want to wear, unless of course we have Fashion Police now...I got to ask the public what I can wear now?...What is socially exceptable??....You people need to grow up!!!!!!

    I like how you started your comment with "being bald is not socially exceptable![sic]" and then ended it with "what is socially exceptable??[sic]", it's funny.
