Eugenia Kim

The story of the quirky Ms. Kim is one fantastic screw-you: After getting fired from Allure magazine, the Parsons School of Design student was flagged down by store owners while wearing a red guinea-feathered cloche she had made in class. (She created the hat to look a little like hair, as she had shaved her head bald after a bad haircut.) Behold, another career is born. Winner of the CFDA Perry Ellis award for Accessories Design, mad hatter Eugenia Kim now has a booming business that claims Cameron Diaz, Madonna, J. Lo, Nicole Kidman, and Britney Spears as clients. Her face-flattering fedoras and sunhats go for around $200-$300 apiece.
