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.

    It looks good on some ladies. I wear one everytime I wash my hair. But it could been seen as offensive to people of he Hindu Faith.

    It depends on how you wear it. Some look really good. They're not for me though, I hate stuff on my head.

    Well... I think all the people wearing turbans look better without turbans. I always thought it was a cultural thing and that's how I view it so I don't see it as a fashion statement, not really.

    Great samples of this awful Un-Amarican look. The soiled rag on the head seems to make a statement. What statement? " I am suspicious"
    Thanks for exposing this horrific trend.
    These people look like they should get extra treatment at a TSA checkpoint. God knows whats under that smelly thing coiled a top their heads like a dog turd.

    This is not a way to deal with a bad hair day! Remember the turban temple shooting?
    This look is best left with the sand and camel droppings.

    Considering that the US is a country of different cultures and ethnic groups coming together so it could be said that it is very American. If you don't like it don't wear it and don't worry about what other people. I don't wear pencil skirts, and I don't care about people people who do. Why should it matter.

    I love it because it's simple and when you don't feel like showing your hair it can be awesome to wear with a cute outfit.

    I guess if you look like Eva Mendez you can pretty much wear anything and pull it off.

    This is FASHION we're talking about. Of course, it's acceptable. Eva looks good in it. It looks a ton better than all the wigs I've been seeing in the fashion world lately.

    Im marveling at the contention that they havent been that "trendy" lately.

    Obviously someone doesn't keep up with current 'high fashion...'

    acceptable only if you are undergoing chemo treatment for cancer and/or if you are a woman over 85 years of age.
  • Melizmatic kevracer 2012/09/11 20:51:23
    I disagree.

    Kylie Minogue can rock it.
