Today's proof that fashion is dead

I have been thinking for awhile now that the traditional sense of fashion is dying before our very eyes. Mostly it's the fault of the Internet, that Great Leveler of Culture and Identity. Control of journalism and the entertainment industry is now becoming a thing in the hands of the average person... and it was only a matter of time before clothing style also became dictated by You and Me, instead of designers in New York and Paris.

But that doesn't mean that those who have been trying to tell us what is "in" are going down without a fight. Witness these... outfits... from a show in Paris yesterday:

The lady on the left is hopeless on a dinner date because of the chainmail covering her mouth. While the one on the right looks too much like a botanical reproductive organ.

I have to ask aloud: Who the hell actually WEARS stuff like this?!

See more wacky Parisian "fashion" here.

The one on the left looks like a Cenobite from the Hellraiser movies.

Call me old-fashioned Drew, but I just don't see the point of an outfit that requires a soldering iron to put on :-P

Me too. Those outfits are hideous. Was that show suppose to showoff someones idea for new Halloween costumes. Because those are "outfits" that any normal person wouldn't be caught dead in...unless it was Halloween.
