A nicely dressed and beautiful young woman poses for her portrait at the Werner Art Gallery. A. L. Werner operated his studio out of 101-103 Genesee Street in Buffalo, New York. The woman is identified on the reverse of the photograph as “Aunt Christine”.  She appears to be very fashionable but her millinery taste is somewhat suspect. By today’s standards, her hat can best be described as ostentatious. However, her choice in headwear was likely quite stylish for her time.

  1. looks quite expenisve, her style.
    btw – I would not wear that hat, but I would like to try her dress.^^

  2. As a hat lover….I would regard it as a “two hat pin, hat” and I wouldn’t change one feather on it!

  3. Love the hat, it works for her. 🙂 She looks part black to me, which is interesting, considering how richly she’s dressed at that time.

  4. Looks a bit like Scarlett Johansson
