I was reading up on how directors avoid hats and anything else that would obscure the faces of their leads (even life-saving helmets, R.I.P. Wun-Wun), and realized this holds true even in animated movies.

It’s kind of a shame, though, because wouldn’t the Disney princesses have amazing hats? I decided to explore a few in fashion sketches.
