Bunny Boost! Marchesa Unveils its version of the Playboy Costume

A Playboy Bunny is a waitress at the Playboy Club. The Playboy Clubs were originally open from 1960 to 1988. The Club re-opened in one location in The Palms Hotel in Las Vegas in 2006.Bunnies wore a costume called a "bunny suit" inspired by the tuxedo-wearing Playboy rabbit mascot consisting of a corset, bunny ears, a collar, cuffs and a fluffy cottontail.    Source: Wikipedia

The Playboy costume is one of the most recognizable costumes around the world. And so goes the Marchesa designers does it spin on the costume and unveils it at the new Playboy club in London. I think the sketch is more dramatic than the actual translation of the garment to cloth. Its missing that tuxedo flavor and has been replaced by the Marchesa signature formal red carpet appeal. Although the detailing of the lace bodice and beading is elegant; to me, it just appears a bit goth without that punch of white added to the mix.
