The trendy hats of Johnny Depp: who makes them?

In recent years, Johnny Depp has drawn attention on red carpets and airports alike thanks to his large, trendy hats. As it turns out, he is not the only one loving this particular sombrero style. Singers Sia and Lady Gaga, models Cindy Crawford and Gigi Hadid, as well as the Kardashians, love the hats of this designer. Who is behind the great hats?

Gladys Tamez, hat designer for the stars

Gladys Tamez Millinery is a Mexican designer conquering Hollywood as well as other markets around the world. She is a specialist in making hats, and a star to watch.

Lady Gaga also buys hats from Gladys Tamez

If you see Lady Gaga with a well shaped and generously sized hat, there's a good chance that she's wearing Gladys Tamez on her head.

Lady Gaga's hat from 'Joanne'

In fact, one of Gladys' hats, a plush pink one, became very famous as the singer wore it on the cover of her album 'Joanne' (2016).

Beyoncé and Maluma also wear Gladyz Tamez hats

Gladys Tamez Millinery is a luxury brand, handmade with the finest materials in the industry. Its creations have conquered many Hollywood celebrities: besides Johnny and Lady Gaga, her customers also include Beyoncé and Maluma.

One of the most creative Mexicans

The magic of this Mexican lady within the world of handmade hats has gotten her into Forbes Mexico's list of 'The 50 most creative Mexicans in the world'.

Hats and bullfighting: a traditional family

The designer inherited the taste for hats from her family. "You could say that I grew up with hats. I come from a bullfighting family and hats were always customary," she told Adela Micha. "You go to the fiesta brava with your bolero. My mother, my aunts, the whole family with them."

The Kardashians: cowboy style

The Kardashians may not be bullfighters, but they do like to protect their faces from the sun with a Gladys Tamez hat.

Gigi Hadid and Kendall Jenner's hats

Gigi Hadid and Kendall Jenner, great friends and influences, love to show off their Gladys Tamez hats on social media.

Gigi Hadid: casual with a big hat

And it's really not just for posing and Insta pics that Gigi wears her Tamez hat. It's comfortable enough to use on a daily basis and versatile enough to combine with any sort of outfit.

These are the models the stars can choose from

As you can see, there are a bunch of different models the stars (as well as other customers) can choose from. They have elegant names like 'Joanne' (thanks to Lady Gaga) and Verushka, Dusty, and Turlington. The prices range from 240 to 3 thousand dollars.

 

Hats inspired by the Rolling Stones

Gladys also makes series of hats, and one of her best known collections was inspired by the Rolling Stones in their 1960s' outfits. This hat here is named after the Stones' song 'Memory Motel'. And there's also a hat called 'Jagger', in honor of the singer Mick Jagger.

Gladys Tamez: her favorite models

The Mexican's favorite models, because they go with everything, are the hats called Phoenix, Bianca, Valentino, Saint Thomas, Jerry Hall, Sinatra and Thalitha. In fact, she sees these hats as fashion essentials, comparable to the little black dress. You should have one as a basic in your wardrobe and you can combine it with any outfit.

Her first celebrity customer was Johnny Depp

Gladys recalls that her first famous client was Johnny Depp in 2012. "He was the first celebrity. I met him through my husband, as one of his friends was working in the wardrobe area in one of his films," she says.

Johnny Depp fascinated by her hats

"I took advantage of the opportunity and sent him a hat," the designer confesses to Luster Magazine. "He sent me a poem in appreciation, because he was fascinated by the style that the hat evoked, and he's been my client ever since."

Gladys Tamez: a hat named Johnny

The actor's hat took Tamez nine hours to mold. She named it 'Johnny.' Here we see what 'Johnny,' the hat design, looks like.

Johnny Depp's favorite: beaver hats

And which hats are Johnny Depp's favorites? The ones also described as 'beaver hats.'

Gladys Tamez: handmade

What the stars particularly love about Tamez's work is that her hats are unique. They are handmade one by one. This sets her apart from other luxury companies that make twenty or more hats at the same time with machinery.

Gladys Tamez for Lady Gaga: oversize caps

Lady Gaga is a particularly important customer for Gladys Tamez. "We started working before the album Joanne," she told Adela Micha. "And then we would make a kind of oversized cap."

Lady Gaga is friends with the Mexican hat designer

On more than one occasion, Gladys has confirmed that she and Lady Gaga are close friends. Lady Gaga is like a muse to Gladys Tamez: someone to work with and an inspiration in aesthetics.

Lady Gaga is a big client with more than 40 pieces

So far, Gladys has created more than 40 pieces for Lady Gaga. And she hasn't made the last one for Johnny Depp either.

The hats become a rage: Cindy Crawford

In fact, after Johnny Depp and Lady Gaga began sporting Gladys Tamez's hats, more celebrities came shopping for them. An example: the classic model Cindy Crawford.

Sia: her mythical wig... and a Tamez hat

The Australian singer Sia is another celebrity who has worn Gladys's hats beautifully. The designer told Los Angeles Blog that she aims "to have you wear the hat, not the hat wear you." This means that she wants the hat to fit the customer's modern outfits and lifestyle, rather than look like a period piece.

Gladys Tamez: unique pieces with famous customers

Besides Sia, Lady Gaga, Johnny Depp, Kendal Jenner, and Gigi Hadid, the handmade sombreros have also reached Jennifer Lopez, Kim Kardashian, Kate Moss, Maluma, Beyoncé, Samuel L. Jackson, and Janet Jackson.

Gladys Tamez has her studio in LA

At the moment, Gladys is living in Los Angeles. She arrived there from Mexico fifteen years ago.

American Horror Story

The designer says she has always been fascinated by Hollywood. In Los Angeles, she can let her creativity flow. In addition, she can design hats for film and TV productions, like this episode of 'American Horror Story.'

Gladys Tamez and her team of hat artists

Gladys Tamez continues to expand. She goes to fashion shows in Paris and even has a spot in the luxury London store Harrods. But regardless of her growth and fame, Tamez still works with the same team of artists, including her husband (on the left). We look forward to seeing more of her hats on our favorite stars!
