Works because of the light catching the curve of the brim of the hat, that dark shadow down the back of her neck! An intriguing positive/negative effect.

If she thinks that hat is going to protect anything apart from her face from harmful UV, I fear she is deluding herself. Have a quiet word with her, Richard, talk some sense into her.
