High & Mighty: The Beehive is Back! In Vogue! And on Moi!

I can not believe that the Met Gala, Punk: Chaos to Couture, is almost here - thankfully still a month and a half away - because, frankly my dears, I don't have a thing to wear!  I have been so busy finding dresses for our RARE vintage clients, I have not had a moment to think about me.  Anyway, I trust that the vintage fashion Gods will bestow something wonderful...  hopefully soon : )

In the March issue of Vogue, Contributing Editor to Vogue, Marina Rust, tried out the beehive.  She called the beehive "very flirty hair, a conversation starter, and it makes you easier to find!"

And, honey, ain't that the truth!  Last year, the fabulously talented John D'Orazio, created a larger then life beehive for me to wear to the Met gala.  We festooned it with beautiful colorful bugs and butterflies from Evolution (inspired by Elsa Schiaparelli's 1938 metal insect and synthetic necklace that was worn by Millicent Rogers and is in the collection of the Costume Institute at the Met).

So in the March issue of Vogue,

Marina Rust's editor sent her to John D'Orazio because he did a "wild, over-the-top beehive for one of the guests at the Met gala". 

John recalling my do said, "it was decorated with beetles in honor of the Schiaparelli exhibit, which called for something exotic, for glamour."

And, yes, it was a real conversation starter!
