After seeing a reduction in popularity, the turban was brought back in fashion in the 20th century by designer Paul Poiret and the turban style was adopted by silent film stars like Gloria Swanson. By the 1930s, the turban became a signifier for well educated women and was sported by Greta Garbo. Due to the ration of hats, scarves were very popular during the wartime. The best known turban is the one Lana Turner is wearing in 'The postman always rings twice' (last picture of the collage). The white turban is a favorite of mine for hazy summer days, and Lana pulls it off so well.
Another actress who looks absolutely dashing in a white turban is no one other than she who is dubbed 'the most beautiful woman in film' Hedy Lamarr. The still below is from her movie Lady of the Tropics (1939).
The turban is a bad-hairday-safer and very easy to tie. When you are a bit creative you can do many things with it. But even so I do not want to withhold this fragment from 1942 on how to tie a turban.
