This classic ruffled cloche pattern is named for Austrian-American actor and inventory Hedy Lamarr, who co-developed a radio guidance system for Allied torpedoes during WWII. Though the US Navy did not adopt the technology until the 1960s, the principles of their work are now incorporated into modern Wi-Fi, CDMA and Bluetooth technology.
