    GREAT SHOTS!

    WORTHY OF AN EXHIBITION!

    BIG UPS MR. MONTGOMERY.

  • Black Diva

    You better work it girls!!!

    Where is Miss Fenty in her hat? She's one of the closeted girls.

  • Don

    Wonderful shots.

    Am I the only one who thinks that the 7th picture from the bottom looks like Mary J. Blige?!

  • Typical DC BS

    Those are great pictures.

  • Head Garments

    It is nothing like-it, to see a woman who can "rock" a hat, very few woman can put-in-on and pull-off that finished and refined look.

    Wonderful pictures....

  • Head Garments

    I meant "very few women"

  • TJ

    @The Advoc8te, I thought the exact same thing. Could that be the reason why the picture is so much bigger than the rest?

  • Darrow Montgomery

    TJ, The picture is only bigger because it is vertical and i need to post all photos at the same width. if it was/is Ms.Blige I would have no idea. I stink at celebrity spotting!

    Thanks for the comments.

  • bloomingdale20001

    I thought that was Mary for a min too!

  • Brahmin

    Not only very beautiful, you capture history in a dignified but light hearted way.

    I would put my bottom dollar that was Mary J. Blige - for reals.

    If you look close at the glasses you can kind of see her tell tale scar. Pretty sure that is her.

  • Wendy Glenn

    You are all correct that pic is of Mary J. Blige, Cicely Tyson was also at the funeral and yet I don't see her picture, she too wore her head piece with style and grace. I remember the old mother's back in the day who felt undressed if they did not have a hat on in church or when going to a brunch or lunch out.

    Thanks Wendy! That was making me crazy!

  • Anita

    @Advoc8te:
    I really think that was Mary J Blige. Didn't she make an appearance at Ms. Height's memorial?

  • Anita

    And I saw Maya Angelou in a black and white photo, too.

  • Michael Korwin

    These photos show how Dr height inspired women to reveal their petsonalities in the most flamboyant fashion. Perhaps we can exhibit the real Height Hats next?

  • Raine Bradley

    Once again, Anita and Wendy Glenn, that pic IS NOT Mary J. It is Suzzanne Douglas, actress of Parent'Hood, How Stella Got her Groove, Tap, Inkwell. I am her publicist. I am right. The hat was made by Louise Green of LA, who is an awesome, awesome designer!

    Thanks for getting that great shot of me and my black hat with the pin honoring Dr. Height that I designed. What a pictorial tribute. It was an honor to work so closely with this great lady for the last two years. She was my connection to my own legacy. If this ever becomes part of an exhibit let me know. Stay well and blessed - ALL!
