Mainly, I think, because it bears a resemblance to Camilla Rutherford's coif in Gosford Park. I love it so much, I want to take it behind the middle school and get it pregnant:

If you were one of the many fashion insiders who bemoaned the sorry state of this year's goodie bags at Rosemount Australian Fashion Week (my heart bleeds for you), it probably won't make you feel much better to hear what Jean Patou's freebies were like in the 1920s.
Attendees of his fashion parades would receive a Patou lipstick which came in its own Cartier lipstick case (the picture above is actually of a Cartier cigarette case, but you get the idea; it would have been pretty lux.)
As if seeing the clothes wouldn't have been reward enough!

What I found rather amusing was how journo Rachel Wells tried to weave into the story this woman:
Davina Reichman, 25, turned up to the Nicola Finetti show on Monday night in an outfit she had made from a $6 roll of bubble wrap.
"We're in a recession. Times are tough. People are watching their money," said the financial consultant who, in recent months, has fashioned a dress out of newspaper and a pair of pants out of serviettes.
Reichman is among a growing number of recessionista who are demanding more bang for their buck - a fact not lost on designers and local and international store buyers.
Interesting angle, SMH, but do you really think the woman garbed in packaging materials is doing it for the money?
