Looking through photo galleries of Paris Couture Fashion Week this morning, and I stumbled across a photo gallery of Maison Martin Margiela photos from the runway. When I saw the first picture of a model with her face completely covered by what looks like a beret set crown to chin, I thought "This must be from backstage - maybe a makeup prep trick I don't know?" And then I clicked through more. Slender women -- skinny, skinny women honestly -- barely clothed in the couture they are modeling, with all their faces covered with bags. Like corpses or torture victims. As if the sequins and flowers could make the design less hideous.
I am appalled.
