Prada ... what were you thinking?

RTW 2008 collections and along comes Prada. I hate to be catty, but can someone tell me what Prada was thinking here? This poor guy looks like a eunuch that got dragged to the disco dressed by an eight year old. Ha-ha. This is not the only hideous outfit to be presented at the 2008 collection. But it was certainly the one that stood out to me.

But, hey, let it be said that I am all for great expression experiments. I have certainly had my share. :)

Paris: Fashion Becomes You

If you don't know, Paris is undergoing a fashionable change right now with the intrusion of fashion week. This artistic event is another great chance to see fashion gone wild. I think the sentiment of the season was definitely summed up by John Galliano's display. Looking more like a masquerade party than a fashion show, models on his catwalk looked like they snuck into mom's powder room and threw on her oversized wardrobe, mixing and matching patterns like there was no tomorrow. Raccoon eyes, multip color mushrooming caps, flopping over the sides of the head, fur coats, lollypop color tights: all just part of the showcase he called Xanadu.
