"Now they stroll up and down the aisles of the church, stars of splendor, beauty beyond measurement. Black ladies in hats," Maya Angelou writes in Crowns: Portraits of Black Women in Church Hats.

It's this dazzling display of style that we look forward to every year at Easter.

From classic cloches to wonderfully embellished wide-brim bonnets, there are plenty of beautiful toppers to marvel at as women around the world slip into their Sunday best.

In celebration of Easter Sunday, we've created a gorgeous gallery of classic hats, ensembles and other Easter-inspired fineries straight from the archives of EBONY magazine.
