As a kid who would occasionally skip school to head up to Tahoe, the obvious giveaway as to where I'd been was the "raccoon eyes" effect. To me it looks like this would give the opposite effect - is that bare skin on her lower left cheek? Whatever, the model resembles a burn victim.

Creepy. Looks like a gimp suit for a Barbie doll.

I see a resemblance to the Louis Gossett Jr. character in 'Enemy Mine'.

Most of us could "fashion" designer clothes that would be either more practical or weirder than what they come up with.

Looks like Leatherface from 'Texas Chainsaw Massacre'.

It puts the lotion on its skin or else it gets the hose again.

I'm surprised that ANY fashion house would even show let alone sell something with such poor quality stitching! Even when weird the big companies usually deliver quality. LOL cool smile
