These tony turbans show how this classic form of headwear has gained favor in the high fashion world. Designers, stylists and fashion photographers have all put their distinct spin on the classic turban in the past few seasons, elevating the head wrap in a seriously haute way.

Today's tony turbans are made from denim or layered multicolored scarves; their proceeds help charitable causes and can be worn in even the hottest summer weather. They've been reinterpreted to channel several periods in fashion's history, from 70s bohemian chic to 60s retro and 90s denim.

The tony turbans above also appear on models of every skin tone and cultural background, a testament to the impact this head wrap has had on global fashion.
