veryone knows that cheetahs have no need for shoes, but a hat is a different story. Here we see the fastest cat on earth wearing a shoe for a hat, with aplomb. The high-heeled Elsa Schiaparelli shoe hat was created in 1937 in collaboration with Salvador Dalí. The idea came from a photograph taken in 1933 by Dali's wife Gala, showing the artist wearing a woman's shoe on his head. There is a whole bunch of Freudian theorizing about how a shoe (worn on the head) manifests some sort of phallic folderol, but the cheetah, being a stylish cat, just likes the way it looks.
