But they did not warn us that fashion could also be outrageous, and that we are meant to knowingly nod our heads and blindly applaud the creativity behind the (frankly absurd) stuff the farshurn people deem farshurnable.
Exhibit A: Emma Leth’s wedding dress.
Emma Leth is a Danish actress, ‘It’ girl and the face of Balenciaga who married artist Tal Rosenzweig over the weekend.
She wore an outfit Harper’s Bazaar contends is the “coolest bridal look of all time”, InStyle called it the “most unique”, but perhaps it was Vogue who nailed it with most nuance: “The floppy, chicly absurdist straw topper looks as if it is the size of a bald eagle’s wingspan, or maybe a small bush.”

Leth said the Jacquemus hat meant a lot to her in the context of her wedding, and wasn't just rested upon her head for aesthetics:
“Getting married is a deeply private thing that you do in front of a lot of people,” she said, according to Vogue.
“This is why I needed a hat that combined the feeling of hiding and sharing generosity at the same time.”
