Can You Find Dinah's Hat?



On Monday's Guiding Light, Dinah (Gina Tognoni) married Shayne (Jeff Branson) in a lovely — if terribly brief and shamefully cheap — ceremony by Doris (Orlagh Cassidy), Springfield's closeted lesbian mayor who has joined more people in matrimony over the last two months than the number of Republicans who have been caught having extramarital affairs. Unfortunately, I was distracted by Dinah's hat. 

For a moment I thought a middle aged Black woman from Detroit was distressed that a piece of her pastor's anniversary ensemble was missing, but the more I became mesmerized (read: horrified) by the hat the more confused I became trying to figure out where I'd seen it before. Was I watching GL, Plan 9 from Outer Space or Forbidden Planet? So I'm leaving it up to you, gentle readers: can you find Dinah's hat?

LMAO!!! That hat was awful!!!
Did you see when she arrived at the municipal building and was gonna greet the guests and they couldn't kiss her or hug her because the giant flying saucer was in the way. I thought Robert Newman was about to lose it!!!

3 WORDS regarding Dinah's hat:

RUH ROH RASTRO

Well. Um. Ya know, Vanessa Chamberlain Reardon did help pick out that hat. And, Um, Vanessa is a society matron right? So, um, the hat probably is something rich folks would wear? Um. Oh Hell, it is a DAMN UGLY HAT!!!!

Don't worry folks, I heard that the hat is 'recurring' and not on contract..so we won't see it every day.

Dinah pulled it off like no other soap character could and would. While it might have been a rush wedding at city hall it was rich and meaning and the scenes leading upto the wedding were worth something.
Even friday's episode in which she and Vanessa road around town on horse & buddy were great.

she didn't have that hat on in pre-wedding scenes with shayne, nor during the vows or at the reception.
Let's give Ashley an award she took the hat off dinah's hands pre-vows.

I'll take this dinah wedding over many other soap weddings, it was meaningful

 Yeah, all that is true, but I expected at any moment for that hat to start shooting at Romulans

Only a diva can wear a hat like that and Dinah's a diva. It worked. Have you ever seen what Dinah wore to her wedding to Roger Thorpe? Or what she wore to her mother's wedding to Matt? Yikes.

Yesterday's outfit was OK but Dinah's best wedding ensemble was definitely the dress and veil she wore back in 1997 when she tried to marry Hart in the ambush ceremony at the Jessup barn.
