Madonna’s Bunny Ears: can anyone buy a pair?
Yes, you too can own your very own Louis Vuitton bunny ears like the ones Madonna wore last night to the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute Gala!
A modified version of the Marc Jacobs-designed accessory will hit stores this fall, according to a rep for the French luxury fashion house. “They will be much, much smaller, and the bunny ears will be attached to a headband,” the rep says.
The silk ears will be offered in black only. A price has not been set yet.
So where did Madge find the wacky headpiece?
The original bunny ears made their catwalk debut in March at the Louis Vuitton Fall 2009 show at the Louvre in Paris. No word if Madonna will be sportin’ any in her upcoming ad campaign for LV.
While Madge’s ensemble last night may not be getting the best reviews, there’s at least one style trendsetter in New York who’s giving the music queen props for daring to be different. “Loved it,” exclaims Simon Doonan, creative guru at Barneys New York and author of Eccentric Glamour. “This is a great era for glamorous eccentricity. People are bored with glamour gowns.”
Doonan goes on to say, “The ultraconventional glamour-gown look? That’s so last century, dahling! Think Lady Gaga!”
Madonna and her bunny ears were seen after the gala at Jacobs’ afterparty at Monkey Bar, according to WWD.
