Le Blog de Betty

I’m sure you’re all already familiar with Le Blog de Betty, but I just discovered it a few weeks ago and am utterly transfixed by her icy beauty and impeccable style.

I know everyone craves the easy yet glamourous style that the French seem to have in their blood, but while most people think striped shirt, I think more perfectly coquettish glittered heel. Check her out and dare to disagree.

Bunny Ears

We first saw this confusing accessory when Madonna wore them to the Met Gala earlier this year and again in her Vuitton shoot. They’ve shown their face (ears?) a few times since then and now the Sartorialist spotted someone wearing them on the street. She was en route to the Louis Vuitton show in Paris which makes it a bit less confusing. The Cut covered it here and echos my sentiments exactly.

Marc Jacobs on how they came to be:

“There’s a girl who works for us, Lucy, she’s on the design team, and Adrian, one of the boys, was tying a little bit of fabric around and it reminded me of bunny. We were thinking of all these different things like can-can dancers, and I saw this piece of fabric wrapped around Lucy’s head and said, ‘Bunny ears, that’s what we need to finish this look.’ So we made all these radzimir bunny ears and that’s how it happened. I like the kind of Playboy, French coquette aspect to it.”

Herein lies the breakdown between couture, ready-to-wear and street fashion. It’s clear that though bold, couture to street style often doesn’t translate.

What do you think? Will this really catch on? Would you wear them?

Dry Your Eyes

Hey, for all of you who are still sad about the demise of Gourmet, Cookie and those two bridal magazines (who knew you could be so many different “types” of bride!), wipe those tears away!

Condé Nast has launched their newest venture, Truly Madly Dating for all you GQ and Glamour types out there looking for love.

To this I say, really, Condé Nast, really? But hey, best of luck to all of you looking for online love. Fingers crossed that neither GQ or Glamour are next on the chopping block.
