Is this the age of runway rage?

fashion-feather-160.jpgModels are seductive, pouty, playful… And this season we are seeing a new emotion: rage. Does this model make you want to buy the dress? She makes me want to crawl to the panic room and bolt the door. 

“Relax, Velma, it’s only hypnosis. Those people in the audience are all laughing at you. They wonder why you let some guy calling himself ‘Hannibal Laguna‘ send you out looking like Morticia  Addams. Why didn’t you get a pretty dress, Velma?

“But Velma, you won’t remember any of this until a small black feather drops onto your elbow. Then, Velma, it’s payback time…”
