The ultimate Easter accessory was never a colored egg. If you know what we know, the yearly celebration of Jesus’ resurrection is also your annual chance to glide through those church aisles with the most excessively stylish hat atop your blessed head. So why on earth did these celebrities waste their creative headgear on the other 364 days of the year? Here’s a showcase of celebrities whose furious headpieces missed the chance to proclaim their love for Christ by blocking your view of the pastor.
