Dalida in kufiya

The great French singing star, born in Shubra, Cairo, Egypt. I have no idea what the source of this photo is, or when or where it was taken. But I love it.

And just for good luck, here's Dalida as Iolanda, singing "Desiderio di un'ora" in the 1954 Egyptian film Sigara wa ka's (A cigarette and a glass). She is making Hoda (Samia Gamal) jealous as hell.

Madonna in kufiya

I posted a photo of Madonna in a kufiya back in 2010, along with a note on the scene in early 80's New York City that might have produced her accessory choice. It wasn't a very good photo. Now, at last, I've located a much, much better one, via pinterest. Check it out.
