New Orleans’ cherished Café Du Monde, which has been slinging beignets and chicory coffee 24 hours a day for over 150 years, is the most-Instagrammed spot in Louisiana, according to a new ranking of commonly IG’d spots across the U.S.

While most of the places on the list are sports stadiums, universities or natural beauties like parks, there are a few foodie-catnip locations in the roundup. Other than Café du Monde, Harpoon Brewery captured Vermont’s most-Instagrammed crown, not — as one would think — the Ben & Jerry’s creamery.

Additionally, both the Iowa and Minnesota State Fairs topped their respective state’s most-snapped spots — and, let’s be honest, we know the real draw here is pictures of deep-fried butter.

Oh, and butter cows. How could we forget butter cows? Butter sculptures of farm animals = “like” bait.

As for top travel destinations, Disney World, the Grand Canyon, Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta and Saint Louis Zoo won their respective states, which makes total sense: No one knows you’re in a cool place unless you take selfies there.

The Latest Craze in Disco Styles Is See-Through Jeans—but Beware of Foggy Bottoms

Posted on

On a clear day, you can see forever—or at least that’s the wicked thought behind L.A. designer Agi Berliner’s transparent idea: see-through jeans. Exhibitionists notwithstanding, most folks wear them over bathing suits or as attention-getting evening wear with halters, garter belts and body stockings. Created for the disco crowd, the $34 jeans are selling like, well, hot pants. In just six weeks, 25,000 pairs have already been sold in such major department store chains as Macy’s, Bonwit’s and Saks.

“What’s limiting American designers is that we’re afraid to do something different,” says Berliner, 32, a Hungarian émigré who fled with her family to the U.S. in 1956. Agi thought up the gimmick in London while marveling at the way plastics were being employed by designers of punk fashion. In her L.A. office, where she designs for La Parisienne junior sportswear, Agi spent five days on the phone and six weeks testing to come up with the right plastic.

Agi herself tried out the French-cut jeans with the zipper in front, and quickly found several problems: Some plastics tore away from stitching, others wouldn’t bend and all fogged with perspiration. The ideal material proved to be a vinyl supplied by a bookbinder. The steam was eliminated with a series of vents behind the knees and in the crotch. “They’re no hotter than polyester pants,” claims Agi, “and if you wear them with tights, they won’t stick to your legs.”

Whatever the discomfort and despite the problem of Saturday night feverishness, discomaniacs report one major advantage of the plastic pants: no laundry bills. To keep Berliner’s see-through jeans clear, all the wearer needs is a little Windex.
