The coupe glass has quite the wild history. Some say it was molded from Marie Antoinette’s left breast because she wanted everyone to toast to her health via her bosom (royalty, amiright?!). But in reality, it was invented long beforehand in France as the first glass made specifically for drinking champagne.
Still, the sexy myths persist to this day. Karl Lagerfeld designed a Dom Perignon bowl inspired by Claudia Schiffer’s, ahem, assets. And Kate Moss lent her anatomy to the design of a glass for London’s 34 Restaurant.
Anatomy aside, the curvaceous coupe adds an element of glam to any home bar. These are our picks for you.
