Er... what's the deal with the no-eyebrows?

I'm not sure. He actually had models wearing facial prosthetics in a recent show, which made them look like aliens. I did know a model years ago and she shaved her eyebrows and scalp line, which would be fine for a fashion model during the Renaissance.

I liked this show because most of the Paris shows this year feature fairly normal clothes that you could actually imagine people wearing on the street or to work. This stuff I could really only imagine someone wearing in the Beetlejuice version of the afterlife.

what...

Who pays for this stuff?? how is this a career?

I'm not saying it's atrocious or anything (at least not... entirely). The entertainment factor is high. But... what ... is the market exactly?

It's like Halloween. They come up with the really crazy stuff for the runway show, and then people say, "Well, that's certainly eye-popping and different, but I could never imagine wearing it". And then they say, "oh no, that's just for the models and Lady Gaga. Here's the stuff we really sell." He has a few boutiques and designs stuff for other lines, and most of it is a lot more appropriate for humans, although not affordable for humans at my income level.
Here's some of this stuff, I think:
