News, but not the serious kind
Is this a runway, or Tobacco Road?
For instance, the photo caption calls this “a creation,” but to me, it just looks like some chick having a butt. Is smoking a cigarette with black gloves and red lipstick the creative part, or what?
Was this lady supposed to stop and light up on the runway, because I have to say that will make fashion shows pretty tedious. Perhaps the designer should have looked for a slightly less addicted model?
I’m telling you right now, if I start seeing fetchingly attired models festooned with nicotine patches, that’s going to detract from the fashion show aesthetic. And once they start hacking up yellow phlegm on the audience, well, that’s a little more glamour than I can stand….
