Bunny Ears: Hottest Fall Trend?
At first I thought it was a joke. When Madonna showed up to the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute Gala in New York this May wearing a costume that looked straight out of Donnie Darko, I was sure it was just Madonna being Madonna. There is no way that she put on turquoise bunny ears with the intention of looking fashionable. Turns out, I was dead wrong. She was partiaking in a trend that is taking over fall collections. Not only was her get-up a Louis Vuitton creation, but it was designed by Marc Jacobs and unfortunetly, he's not the only one hare-obsessed this season. Moschino's Cheap and Chic collection this fall features a ridiculous pink felt hat. Now, everytime I open a fashion magazine, I see a LV ad that features those terrible pinnae. Also, Lady Gaga (who is one of my fashion icons) was recently spotted with a lace bunny ear headpiece to accent her Alexander McQueen wool dress. Gaga can literally pull off anything, and although her choice of bunny ears is more subtle, they still look, for lack of a better word, stupid. I really don't understand the appeal of it. I don't think it's avant-garde, I don't think it's artsy, I think it's flat-out hideous and I don't care how trendy it would make me look, you're never gonna see me with animal ears.
