Book Review: What Shall I Wear Today by Fifi Lapin

Fifi Lapin, in case you haven't heard of her before, is the world's most fashionable bunny blogger. And as well as a blog that keeps thousands of fashionistas in ecstasy with her daily posts from catwalks the world over, the rabbit-shaped socialite (who claims she is spoilt rotten, spending an obscene amount of her father's fortune "which he made playing fast and loose with carrot and lettuce shares on the international stock market") has just had a book published too.

What Shall I Wear Today? Style Secrets of a Furry Fashionista was published by Sceptre earlier this month, and is the perfect accompaniment to Fifi's blog. Featuring gorgeous photography and illustration alongside interviews with designers and practical fashion advice for every occasion, this is an inventive and adorable twist on the traditional and somewhat tired style bible format.

And because there's such a wide-ranging assortment of designers involved, from Betsey Johnson and Vivienne Westwood to Marc Jacobs and Julien Macdonald, the credibility associated with those major names easily elevates it beyond quirky vanity project to a book which is both beautiful and useful.

Not everyone will be impressed by Fifi, but for those who aren't inclined to take style tips from a fictional rabbit fashionista, this would never be the right book for them anyway. For fans of Fifi's, or for an audience that haven't encountered her before but are likely to be taken with the scrapbook-style format, original illustrations and photography, this would make a perfect present.

The RRP is £12.99, but you can buy it from Amazon for £7.57.

  2. And she goes on a lot of glamorous getaways! What of the quarantine laws, eh?

  3. Well, she's very well disguised. And I imagine her passport says "French" rather than "rabbit".
