Fashion and foolishness

At a time when Islamophobia focuses it’s insinuations on women in niqabs, aint it special these parodies show up on the Paris runways in both mens & women’s wear!? If the models step outside for a little Gauloises break they can be immediately arrested, carted off to jail, & prosecuted. According to social psychology, there are any number of possible explanations for this fashion travesty, running the gamut from the nerd is now haute couture to designer’s secret admiration for the veiled women defying autocracy. If it's the former, nice job! If it's the latter, they chose a damn poor way of expressing it. (Photo on left by Thibault Camus/AP & on right by Antonio de Moraes Barros Filho)
