Blame it on the House of Fabergé. Ever since the company crafted its first luxuriant egg back in 1885 for Tsar Alexander III (it was a gift for his wife, Empress Maria Fedorovna), there's been nothing more covetable at Easter than an over-the-top, extravagant egg. And for anyone eggs-ercising (sorry!) restraint against all things sugar in the lead-up to the big day, an unimaginative chocolate mold, just doesn't cut it. That's why Vogue.com scoured the shops for our favorite incredible eggs-edible and otherwise-and asked a crop of créateurs to offer up their vision of how a decadent Easter egg should look. Whether space-age bijoux, hand-painted, glitter-sprinkled, paper-covered or femme fatale-personified, we're sure you'll agree the delicious options out there are far too good to eat.
