Nymphet Alumni

In this week's episode, we discuss the legacy of Frou-Frou in fashion, from its Belle Époque origins to the (New) Romantic taffeta explosion of the 1980s to the coquettish hyper-femininity of today's thotwear and couture alike. Over the course of over 150 years of fashion history, we weave together the can-can harlots of the Moulin Rouge, Princess Di's flounced and frilled wedding party, and the subversive stylings of Cafe Forgot.
