Ahead of the Curve: Lillian Wang
Photography, Luca Trovato, Town & Country, February 1999.
When Lillian Wang von Stauffenberg opted for this cupcake "tower," in lieu of a traditional cake for her 1998 wedding, it was a seriously chic, unexpected choice. Stylish but appetizing. Different but not too edgy. Back then cupcakes weren't seen everywhere.
Whether in interiors, events or fashion, I think it's fun to look back and find elements that began as something so fresh but later were copied to the point of being commonplace. Although, I think the design of the confection above still holds up.
BTW: Lillian Wang is the bride who provided her guests with parasols as shown in the post below.
