Claudia Schiffer's Boobs

Happy New Year!

Okay, that formality's out of the way, so I can now turn to the critically important meat of this post: Claudia Schiffer's breast has been turned into a bowl.

This is news in and of itself — Karl Lagerfeld has designed the bowl for Dom Pérignon as an homage to Ms. Schiffer's ladybits, oh my god! — but I'm posting about it also because the design is additionally an homage to Marie Antoinette's milk bowl, which was discussed in this space a scant five months ago. So it is internally relevant! Also, while the Marie Antoinette breast costs $3,700, the Schiffer breast is a mere $3,150 — plus a bottle of Dom.

That said, the Lagerfeld-Dom Pérignon-Schiffer boob bowl raised two questions in my mind:

The first is that, while Claudia Schiffer is admittedly completely super-hot, and I realize that she is Karl's re-obsession du jour, it was my understanding that it was not specifically her breasts that were the source of her fame. For a more famously be-boobed model, I'd have gone with Lara Stone or Sophie Dahl.

The second was really good, and allowed me to put my Wine Snob Hat on (it's a very ugly hat), and was something along the lines of "But really, isn't a breast the wrong shape glass out of which to drink Champagne?"

Except then I did some googling, and you know what, people? The coupe Champagne glass was modeled on the Marie Antoinette breast bowl! Zomg!

Unfortunately, "the bubbles dissipated quickly due to the large surface area exposed to air and spillage was a constant problem." So while it is not perhaps bubblishly efficient, it is nevertheless completely historically appropriate to drink Champagne out of Claudia Schiffer's boob!

Wait...you were not familiar with the champagne bowl until now?

I can't decide if that means that your life has been uncultured or sheltered.

Both? Neither? I was familiar with the coupe but never realized there was such thing as a flat-out bowl. Let alone that the whole thing was mammary in aesthetic origin.
