Carmen Miranda

Carmen Miranda, the woman with the most and the most heavy hats in showbiz. Also the owner of loads of platform wedges. Do you think she was as small as Kylie Minogue, we ask of you? Yes she was!  And another thing; nobody can carry that many accessories as well as she did, not even Mrs Apfel. Adore x 2!
