Folks, what is RULE NUMBER ONE for fashion shows? No Zombies! So you not only hire zombie models, you even dress them in festive outfits and send them out! Oh, I’m sure nobody noticed, until that one lurched insanely toward the Vogue editor!

This train wreck gets worse. You mistakenly use the hair styling guide from that country music show, and suddenly it’s Paris in the Ozarks! Those models had to crawl down the runway because they couldn’t walk with such heavy hair! Why does this never happen to Lagerfeld?
