“To our Fans and Friends: As R.E.M., and as lifelong friends and co-conspirators, we have decided to call it a day as a band,” the group said in the statement. “We walk away with a great sense of gratitude, of finality, and of astonishment at all we have accomplished. To anyone who ever felt touched by our music, our deepest thanks for listening.”
Modern-day fascinators, embellished hair ornaments adorned to one’s head with either a comb, clip or band have become the go-to celebratory headpiece, with society pages brimming with trendsetters showcasing their attachment to the daring hat alternative. Less fussy than a full-coverage hat, perfect for keeping blowouts voluminous, light and airy for warm summer nights and the ability to transform a simple cocktail dress into a formal stunner — the fascinator is turning heads.
