Tori Amos´ Corset

As a corset lover, I´d like to include in my blog some famous corset and this is the first one:

Tori Amos´corset

Tori Amos designed this yellow and black striped corset with feathers, which she titles "Honey Bee." The cups have white flowers at their centers becoming eyes, wire antennas on the cups and wire mesh wings on the back creating a very true-to-life bee. Also present is the original notebook and sketch completed by Tori reading "Honey Bee / With Love / Tori Amos / With Hagene Wist (sic)." The corset is hand-made by Frederick’s of Hollywood based upon this design. Proceeds from this sale benefit RAINN (The Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network).
