Typically, the world’s most notable figures are immortalized through things like bronze statues, bank holidays, and buildings named after them. Not many people have their own head vases — and we think this might be the greatest honor of all. 

Head vases have adorned homes for centuries. Our favorite examples date to the mid-1900s, when a handful of iconic, accomplished, and extremely fashionable women had their beautiful heads commemorated through this eye-catching décor staple.

Carmen Miranda

Carmen Miranda was an accomplished actor, skillful singer, and dazzling dancer with an unmistakable look. She was known for wearing elaborate costumes topped with tutti-frutti hats

Miranda’s likeness has influenced countless headwear, jewelry, and clothing lines throughout the years. It can also be seen on the Chiquita Bananas at your local grocery store. But most of all, her legacy lives on through head vases that emphasize her signature headwear and expressive face. 

Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis

As first lady of the United States, Jackie O's fashion sense set trends across the globe that live on to this day. Her a-line dresses and tailored suits portrayed a perfect combination of flair and finesse. She also had an unmatched ability to accessorize, punctuating her outfits with oversized sunglasses, pillbox hats, and statement pearl necklaces.

Jackie O will forever be celebrated not just for her fashion, but also for her ability to use it as a vehicle for self-expression and as a source of inspiration for women everywhere. For these reasons, she is more than deserving of a head vase.

Betty Grable

Betty Grable took showbiz by storm when she was a teenager and starred in more than 40 feature films throughout the 1930s and 40s. At the peak of her career, she was the highest-salaried woman in America, earning a grand total of $3 million before retiring from the silver screen in the mid-1950s.

Beyond her impeccable acting chops, Grable was also an iconic pin-up model revered for her perfectly arched eyebrows, eye-catching red lips, and porcelain skin — all attributes that make for a great head vase. Additionally, her legs were reportedly insured for $1 million.
