Someone call Mr. David Attenborough, because the following pages are a Netflix series waiting to happen. "Most of the species", would say the illustrious Briton, but with a Brazilian accent, "that belong to the insect family don't use fashion accessories or the latest trend when it comes to footwear." But most species of the insect family, in fact, have never had airtime(s) either, pass the pun, in Vogue. Who are we to say that a ladybug can't be girly, that a beetle doesn't have a rocker soul, or that a cockroach would never be an influencer? We know: in fact, the most preposterous thing here is that we never thought about how lucky insects are to be able to wear more than one pair of shoes at a time.
