WEDNESDAY, MARCH 31st, 2010 struttin' some easter glam

EasterParade2"In your Easter bonnet, with all the frills upon it, You'll be the grandest lady in the Easter parade!"

Irving Berlin's ode to New York's Easter Parade in the eponymous 1948 musical (ooh, don't miss it: a period treasure with Fred Astaire, Judy Garland, Peter Lawford & Ann Miller, all shockingly young and cheery!) refers to a tradition that began mid-19th century, when the city's social elite would attend services at one of the 5th Avenue churches then parade their new fashions down "The Avenue." The, ahem, "less-than-elite" would come to catch a glimpse of the latest trends in a part Red-Carpet glam/part Runway couture event for the pre-television/PRE-pre-blogging age. Circa 2010, the Easter Parade is a bit more Lady Gaga than Lady Astor. However, we'd like to revive the tradition of haute glam with these spectacular creations currently heating up our shops.
