In the November 28, 2013 issue of CoinsWeekly, editor Ursula Kampmann pointed out two examples of numismatics in fashion - dresses with images of coins on them. In the left is actress Scarlett Johansson in a Dolce & Gabbana dress illustrated with Greek coins. On the right is a model in Milan wearing Dolce & Gabbana's centurion dress, adorned with Roman coins and medallions.
Johansson's one of my favorite actresses these days. But I'm not impressed with that dress. But the Centurion one is awesome. Hooray for numismatic fashion!
