Cronuts have been a phenomenon for some time now, but the distinctive pastries have just caught on among the fashion crowd. Last week, designer Rebecca Minkoff and blogstar BryanBoy Instagrammed themselves moments before biting into the croissant-doughnut hybrid. Today, fashion photographer Terry Richardson posted his own homage to the treat. The image—of a greasy, unboxed Cronut ready for consumption—is captioned, simply, "The illusive and delicious Cronut." Who in fashion will hop on the Cronut train next? Anna Wintour is surely out; we're placing our money on Alexander Wang, a designer that's been known to enjoy more than a few guilty-pleasure foods.
Update: The Cronut finds one more fashion fan in model Heidi Klum, who saved a seat on her private jet earlier this month for a box of the frosted delights.
