Today's most fabulous bears are sporting pinafores. This one, worn by supermodel Beary in a recent runway show, is by up-and-coming label Martita Rampage.
"It's hip, it's fresh, it's now," Beary said after the show. "I was proud to be chosen for the Martita Rampage show. I even waived my fee." Since Beary won't leave her cave for less than $10,000 a day, that's quite a compliment to the new designer.
Unfortunately, like so many young fashionistas today, Beary isn't much of a lady and rarely wears underpants. Some speculate that she relies on the titillating paparazzi pix for publicity.
Since the toddler for whom Beary is intended as a holiday gift isn't much of a lady herself (the only thing standing between her and belching the alphabet is knowing all the letters), it should be a match made in heaven.
