What is a Fascinator ?
From Longman Family Dictionary: Fascinate - To transfix by an irresistible mental power, to attract strongly, esp by arousing interest; captivate ~vi to be irresistibly attractive - Fascinator n, Fascinatingly adv, Fascination n.
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia: A Fascinator is a fashion accessory, more commonly worn by women, on the head or in the hair. While it is simply defined as a head scarf, it may be anything from a small hair piece to a more complicated creation, but generally it is less substantial than a hat. It may be made from many materials, e.g. feathers or lace, and attaches to the head by varying means.
