Dom Pérignon is releasing a glass modelled on supermodel Claudia Schiffer’s breasts. The Lagerfeld-designed bowl is a reinterpretation of an iconic 1787 dining service made especially for Queen Marie Antoinette. Reportedly, that bowl was the exact size of Antoinette’s breast. Decanter coverage here <link>. The glass, which is sold as a package with a bottle of 1995 Oenothèque, costs US$3,150 (£2123).

I suspect most of us know what Ms Schiffer looks like, here is how Queen Marie appeared in a state portrait.

Maybe Dom Perignon could have asked Carla Bruni. Isn’t she the modern Queen of France rather than a German supermodel? I’ll leave you to find your own images of Mrs Sarkozy. I’m told they’re widely available.
