Out of all the loony things I’ve seen on Jayne Mansfield this has to be the weirdest…. It’s a Jayne Mansfield Hed-Topper… Yes I said it…. Head topper… Tacky jokes aside this is a great scarf… And expensive for the time at 2. 98! Apparently it wasn’t uncommon for her to advertise different companies junk. I think the most bizarre I have heard of is the Jayne Mansfield Tanning Ring when I find it I will be posting it.

……This has to be the best part! Lets open up the Instructions and see whats inside.

Here is a little example of how this Hed-Topper works. Enjoy.

Alas I have to say I brought out my inner Charles Nelson Reilly with this scarf. I love it!

    SO jealous of this I can’t stand it. It’s true that Jayne Mansfield endorsed many products and God knows how many record albums she appeared on, at least 10 that I know of. But I’ve never even heard of the Hed-Topper let alone seen this before. And the unfortunate title given Jayne’s faith, only adds to its greatness.

    My favorite thing is probably Jane demonstrating the different ways to wear the Hed-Topper. That it also can be worn as a scarf,Not to mention that it’s the “Scarf To The Stars”, kills me.

    The tag is beautiful. The product is so pathetically plain.

    You look marvelous.

    OMG. The picture of you pursing your lips (all the way to the left) is the best ever!

    As for this kitsch, it’s incredible!

    Kudos on the well-deserved Classique d’ Camembert– the item is spectacular and so are your photos. Extra kudos for the hilarious Charles Nelson Reilly “Apache scarf” mention– impressive that someone your age can throw around these pop culture references so expertly!
