At the DSquared2 fashion show in Milan on Monday, heads turned in confusion as models traipsed past with what some might not consider a classic fashion accessory -- the Starbucks cup. WTF?
Really? Is this high fashion? Do you feel more stylish when walking around with a cup of money coffee? It is a status symbol. It definitely says "I just dropped hella cash on my caffeine fix." We asked a few readers how they feel when they walk down the street with a Starbucks cup.
"I don't think I ever say to myself, 'You know what this outfit needs? A Starbucks cup!' but I do find that I play the part when I have a cup ... my inner Rachel Zoe comes out. " -- Larissa
"I feel more hoity-toity corporate when I treat myself to a latte at Starbucks ... And that my job is more than Admin Assistant." -- Eva
"If it's a particularly large cup, like one of the Olsen twins." -- Dan
Well, we guess next time you go to Starbucks, you should think about working that cup. Strut down that street like it's a catwalk!
As for the DSquared2 show, we actually think it takes a little of the "runway" out of the look -- like these are people you might see on the street and the model above is on a "Walk of Shame." We're not sure if that's a good thing. Reader Aarthi says "When I saw this, I was drawn in and thought 'maybe this is a collection that has a busier woman in mind.'"
