Berets from Cuba

One wouldn't think so, looking at all the Ché wannabees and lookalikes, but Cuba isn't really a beret country. 
Berets are typically worn as part of a uniform, be it for school children, police or military and to keep the memory of Ché Guevara alive. 
The Basque community living on the island doesn't seem to have held on to their traditional headgear.
But, Cuba isn't the country it once used to be. These days super model Gisele Bündchen, one of the richest women in the entertainment industry, is welcome to do photo-shoots for Victoria's Secret - a rather capitalist cosmetics concern.
Good on Gisele though, she does so while wearing a Basque beret!
