Quick quiz: the fashion model seen here…

has the Mother of all Toothaches.

– shows how you can make a swell hat from toilet paper.

– is just learning to tie a turban.

Рhas a pathological fear of being killed freakishly, like Isadora Duncan.

This is no suprise, Lauren is after all the original creator of the lampshade chapeau which has gained commonplace acceptance and use at university parties the world over.

Where the heck is ‘oddly enough’? If I wanted to read a blog, I’d look for one. Um, not this one.

How to dry your newly washed sheets when some rat has stolen your clothes line!

Posted by Ivan Hackman | Report as abusive

“Tumble dry” does not mean tying the clothing to one’s head and doing summersaults until it’s dry!

What is the model thinking?

“I look like a Middle Eastern clown, but at least no one is looking at my clown shoes. Hey everyone, the circus is in town!”

“This is it. I’m going to kill Ralph!”

“I feel like a butterfly trying to chew my way out a cocoon.”

“‘Bows and flows of angel hair,
And ice cream castles everywhere….\'”

Some of the things Designer create are totally garbage. Like this one its gross and who in their right mind would wear something so stupid on their heads?

I’ve never seen anybody with such a bad toothache. Must be really painful.

Why am I reminded of The Flying Nun?

Posted by RLM | Report as abusive

The head piece is actually designed by British miliner Philip Treacy. The model is more a statement and lucky enough to have worn and photographed wearing an art piece by worlds most creAtive hatmaker of all times. By the way the model is not an American women, she actually is from the middle east..May be RL, just may be wanted to create and present a vision of America more tolerant, humane and merciful…….

I just want to know who is going to buy and wear this mess. I definitely expect more from Ralph Lauren and/or anything going out on his label.
