Macarons have become increasingly popular in the last few years, going beyond just a culinary experience and becoming a symbol of fashion. For a cookie, they’re quite expensive, and eating them is a sign of luxury.
Macaron shops like Ladurée exude a chicness that isn’t symbolized by other pastries. The macaron is thus the most fashionable of all desserts. As such, it is fetishized and accessorized, and prêt-à-manger becomes a prêt-à -porter. Ariana Grande scrumptiously stunned in Kenley Collins’ macaron dress. That one was made just for her, but here are other options for those who like to wear what they eat.
