Australian actor Hugh Jackman and supermodel, singer and French First Lady Carla Bruni have been named the winners of this year's Celebrity Hat Wearers.
While, in the men's category, the X-Men Origins: Wolverine star has beaten the likes of Sir Sean Connery, Daniel Day Lewis, Jonny Depp, and Peter Andre to win the title, Bruni beat the British queen, the countess of Wessex, Madonna and Victoria Beckham in that order respectively.
The chart list was produced by Londons' promotional consortium Luton First, a famous millinery and hat-making industry.
"Hugh Jackman's outback hat, worn in the film Australia, not only achieved instant fame on the big screen but also popularised the look for men's casual wear generally," Philip Wright of Walter Wright millinery designers, Luton told IANS over e-mail from London.
"Jackman has also been seen sporting some stylish trilby and pork pie hats off screen with poise that make him achieve the top spot on the list," he added.
Philip said that celebrities are also setting international trends by wearing many "statement" hats of late.
