Georgiana was notorious for beginning fashion trends. One of these was the introduction of the large ostrich feather. She would drape 3 foot feathers over her hair, they added bounce, height and style to the up-do's.
Antoinette also jumped on the feather train, wearing similarly tall plumes atop her head. The look caught on and soon enough a fashionable crowd would appear to be merely a sea of feathers bobbing up and down.
It looks like some designers are dipping into the possibility of bringing feathers back en vogue. Check out this feather design from Bebe. What do you say to this? Yay or nay? Should feathers come back?
