Oh boy. First Lily Cole, then Lou Doillon, now the Marchesa girls are making the transition from fashion to, well, fash-off, as they get on board with Playboy.
But don’t worry - the girls aren’t literally stripping off their elegant layers for the delight and delectation of men-folk the world over. No, instead they are lending their dazzling design talents to the original Playboy costume, designing a special couture corset for….the delight and delectation of men-folk the world over.
Lavishly bedecked with beading, embroidered lace and a provocative little peplum, the outfit made its debut last night at a special – um – fashion show at the brand spanking new Playboy club in Mayfair. Bunnies teased the crowd in a catwalk parade of various permutations and combinations of the infamous Playboy outfit.
Naturally, the all black ensemble specially created by Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig drew the loudest wolf-whistles, but let’s hope it also draws the largest sums of money when it goes up for auction in October, with proceeds going to Breast Cancer awareness.
Think of it as a gesture of goodwill from your bosom bunnies.
