Animals have long been a staple of jewelry editorials and advertisements, but they typically tend toward the exotic: tigers, cobras, peacocks... think kirsten dunst draped around a lion in her 2011 Bvlgari campaign. But this editorial, shot by Peter Lippmann back in July for Marie Claires accessories insert, Marie Claire 2, sidesteps the unnecessarily glamorous movie stars and cuts right to the chase. The best way to wear fine jewelry, in my opinion, is to be casually unaware of its finery. And theres nothing more un-self-aware(?) than a goofy, weirdly surprised-looking chicken. Plus theres something about plumage that looks somewhat couture-y, you know what I mean? Maybe I would have known about this sooner if Id been aware that Marie Claire 2 was even a thing. Anyway, Im sorry to be so behind the times.
