LV THROW BACK.... BUNNY EARS OF COURSE
Ever since the first bunny-eared model stepped onto the Louis Vuitton Fall Catwalk and after Madonna donned them at the Met Galas people have been wondering, why the bunny ears?
Well,Marc Jacobs has finally explained himself. In the making of the 2009 Fall/Winter ad campaign video, he said: "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." Apparently they made 30 to 40 colors before choosing the right one for Madonna's Fall Ad. The bunny ears have been explained . . . we can all breathe now.

This was years ago and I am STILL not over it !!! I remember purchasing my own lace bunny ears from Bcbg Maxazria and was inspired to incorporate them for a gala I attended .all though I regrettably ditched them at the last moment losing my confidence. But why??!! I do love the French coquette aspect and it's definitely fun and whimsical. And really..me questioning my confidence in fashion? GASP.
Anyhow EVERY Easter I think of that incredibly memorable Louis Vuitton runway show and I simply just adore the frou-frou bunny ears. I know Lady Gaga feels the same way. I mean she has too , right? I cannot possibly be alone in this.
Perhaps we should all make these and wear them to a summer garden party ??! And someone please be incredibly ambitious and wear a pair to Easter brunch with the in-laws today!
