Today, I would like to talk about fashion. Well, actually I want to talk about fashion that is paraded around on runways. I was curious about it all so I got me to the Google and learned some interesting facts.
Lower-end (affordable) clothing is presented by models who are approachable and friendly. Stores like JC Penny and Sears do that. Ridiculous clothing priced beyond anyone’s means is presented by models who look arrogant, starved, and angry. There is some sort of subliminal logic to it. I guess they are telling us that rich people don’t have to smile and please anyone. There might be some truth to it.
But let’s go back to the runway for a moment. What is up with that? What is the joy in having emaciated people walk around in ugly clothing? Well, I think it’s a lot like Nascar. People are really waiting for the crash. It’s like sitting on the porch during an electrical storm waiting for lightning to strike the transformer. It is GOING to happen….eventually.
I make my point……
You put your left foot in, you put your left foot out……
You break your other ankle and your turn yourself around…..
That’s what it’s all about!
On your marks!
Might as well jump. Jump!
Go ahead and, jump.
Get it and jump. Jump!
Go ahead and, jump.
Cossack dancing at it’s finest.
This Russian woman can not only do it in heels…
She is also carrying a handbag!
Thank goodness for thongs….. (for her sake, at least)
Hey! Hey! HEY!
And not only are the models a trip, so is the clothing. We’ve all seen it. No need for more photos…..
Except this one.
You can see another coming around the back, so it’s some sort of group deal. No sure what this is supposed to be. Maybe they are prototype costumes for a musical version of Oh Brother, Where Art Thou?
The elastic leg bands give it such a nice, jammies feel.
There are many good reasons I am not in the fashion industry. Besides the fact that I am completely uninterested in clothing (for the most part), I laugh far to easily.
