Penne for your thoughts?
This isn’t what you’re probably thinking.
This woman was not the victim of a Mafia hit, despite the telltale pasta on her head just like those wiseguys who often seem to flop forward into their linguine after they’ve been wasted.

No, this model is just showing what happens when you take the phrase “angel hair” too literally: you wind up wearing a kind of clothing where you don’t need to ask the dry cleaner for starch, because it’s already there. This photo slideshow says it all:
