Barbra Streisand is an icon in every sense of the world. The Brooklyn-born triple threat went from a NYC cabaret singer to Broadway star overnight and went on to conquer the silver screen, pop charts, and every stage she set foot on. She also established herself as a fashion icon thanks to her fearless sense of style.
Babs has had too many fabulous stage and film costumes to count. She won the hearts of audiences with her bold wardrobe choices, from her mini dresses and go-go boots in The Owl and the Pussycat to her elaborate costumes in Funny Girl to her many feathered hats in Hello, Dolly!, to her stunning concert gowns. But, fun fact: all of Streisand’s costumes in A Star is Born came straight from her own closet.
Below is a gallery of 30 fascinating vintage photographs of a young Barbra Streisand wearing hats from the past.
