|The Green Stall - Matthew Darly - 1777|
It was common for women to wear vegetables in their hair - a pouf a la jardiniere - including such tasty morsels as cabbage, radishes, herbs, turnips, carrots, and artichokes.
"I shall never again wear anything but vegetables! It looks so simple, and is so much more natural than even flowers." - Overheard in Court
|Marie Antoinette - La Belle Poule|
|Fruit Stall - Matthew Darly - 1777|
But a lady is not limited to wearing perishables on their head, how about a wig made of a protective product, such as Saran Wrap? We're completely smitten with these wigs by Kate Cusack - they too capture the spirit of the grandiose, the extravagant, and the glamour of the 18th century versions. We would just die to wear one of these to a grand ball!
