Before there was Emily Ratajkowski, the perfect pair belonged to none other than Marie Antoinette. According to lore, her royal breasts were deemed so unparalleled, that the champagne coupes we know and love today were sculpted to match her shape. That's right. You've been drinking out of a French lady's tots this whole time.
Then about 200 years passed and someone decided to update the coupe, and the glassware world rejoiced as Kate Moss offered up her bosom. Artist Jane McAdam Freud took a mold of Moss' left boob and made a limited edition coupe for London's 34 restaurant. Good thing Kate Upton didn't volunteer her set because we'd all be wasted.
