Is it time, ladies? Has the stench of Gypsy Rose Lee and Miss Piggy been washed away? Is it time for the long-maligned opera glove to come back to the world of fashion?
Alexander Wang, Antonio Berardi, Betsey Johnson
Carolina Herrera, Chanel, Christian Dior
Diane von Furstenberg, Doo. Ri., Givenchy
Haider Ackermann, Jason Wu, Jean Paul Gaultier
Lanvin, Nina Ricci, Tory Burch
Looks like it already has.
Honestly? These all look pretty fabulous to our gay eyes. Except for the pink Betsey Johnson and purple Chanel. There’s just no way we can avoid seeing Miss Piggy in those instances. The DVF look at the top is TO DIE.

The Opera Glove: YEA or NAY?
And we don’t mean it in some philosophical sense. Can you see yourself wearing opera gloves and not be at a costume party?
