    When will it stop?

    Here is a picture from the European Institute of Design during their Fall/Winter 2004-2005 Haute Couture collection show at Rome's Fashion Week July 11, 2004.

    I find it absurd. Only Homer Simpson would do that when he needs to work-out. Of course, the red ball hanging from the string of beads would need to be replaced by some sort of food.

    What does it have to do with autumn or winter anyway? The fabric looks thin enough...

    Looks like a snake (with a long chain attached to its tail) has just shead its skin all over her face. That is not fashion. That is nonsense.

    Hey, do they get paid to make that stuff? I think I'm seeing some easy money!

    Didn't the designer see "The Jerk". That poor woman's going to go cross-eyed watching that little ball and the designer's going to face a lawsuit.

    That woman is wearing far too much clothing. Other than that, what's the problem...?

    OMG! I was thinking nearly the same thing, reminded me of those old cartoons when they'd hold a stick with a carrot on a string in front of the donkey to get it to walk! Maybe that's how they get these models to wear these hideous outfits out on the runway, in public, by starving them then dangling a morsel of food in that ball in front of their face. They just keep following the food, trying to catch it :biggrin:

    That's just, well, um, words seem to be failing me...as soon as I stop laughing at her outfit, I might think of something better to describe it :rofl: No, really, my sides are starting to hurt! :rofl: :rofl:

    How did you two even notice bras and panty lines? I was so busy looking at that contraption on her face, that I didn't even notice if she had clothes on.

    well, if you look closely, it does seem to detract from her rather unusual nose. maybe that's what the designer was going for.

    I wonder if she's looking down because she's looking for the rest of her abacus..?

    Maybe she just isn't very smart and didn't realize she was supposed to wear the hat on TOP of her head :redface:

    And now that I take a look beyond that contraption over her face, I see that she does seem to be wearing some collection of rags that someone has half-heartedly sewn together to make an outfit for the poor waif. It doesn't even look like they did a good job sewing, all sorts of bunched up looking seams! I can do a better job of sewing than that!

    Ooh, since my fortune said I'd be famous in something new to me, maybe I should pursue my dream of being a lab coat designer! (I have these ideas for the ultimate geek coat that no scientist should be caught dead without!) After seeing this rag as haute coteur, I'm suddenly inspired that my lab coat might actually make it onto the Paris runways!

    Look at her head but not her body. You couldn't tell the difference. The nose is a bit weird and men have long hair as well.
