Ferrero Rocher shows that all that glitters is not gold

Chinese-American fashion designer Vivienne Tam designed a Ferrero Rocher inspired gown in a Christmas campaign by Mirum Hong Kong.

This mashup of Vivienne Tam and Ferrero Rocher chocolate is certainly eye-catching. Ad Nut appreciates the adventurousness of the brands involved, but personally believes covering oneself from head to toe in gold is a fashion faux pas; a bit over the top, even if it is Vivienne Tam. Ad Nut has to dig out a pair of shades as a shield from all that glitter. 

Thankfully, the dress only mimics the wrinkled wrappings of the chocolates—imagine all the hazelnuts that would go to waste if they'd used the real thing.

Finally, Ad Nut is deeply touched that Ferrero Rocher went to the trouble of immortalising yours truly (below). It's a true honour, and might even force Ad Nut to reconsider gold as a fashion choice.
