Hat fashion

Last week was India Fashion Week, and the grand finale of the week was the Kumar collection... which also seemed to buy into the Weird Head-wear theme. This first one looks like a section of dryer hose that's been spray-painted chartreuse. She doesn't appear happy to be wearing it, either. The dress is kinda cute, but the hat really doesn't seem to go with it at all.

And this one appears to be a primitive Instant Messaging device, with rolled-up notes impaled on sharp spikes.
The detailing on the jacket seems very classy, but who would know? I'm a little suspicious of designers who feel the need to distract from their clothing with such bizarre headwear. Aren't their designs fabulous enough to stand alone on their own merits?
