More Ungulates, Even-Toed


There may be some ongoing Biblical controversy over the presence of camels in Egypt, but there was no doubting the presence of their toes at the Marc Jacobs holiday shindig.

Sometimes I wish I were this creative. This is not one of those times.

You're welcome!

I was going to say something about those costumes...but then I didn't know what to say. How about "I'm glad I'm not wearing it"?

I now know what my limitations are. If I didn't before, I do now.

They were quite well constructed though, don't you think?

HILARIOUS! haha
The two girls with the big camel-toes in their bellies are priceless!

I saw an art instillation about 4 years ago that was basically a giant costume very much in the same vein as the camel toe girls. The name of the artist and exhibit is escaping me, but if I remember, I'll post an image, just for the sake of comparison.

Suzanna Mars said...

Oh, Claire, I'd love to see whatever that was!

This is spectacularly grotesque - and quite cheeky of him. He looks like he needs to be gracing the pages of Vice magazine or something...It would be hilarious if he made it on the list of Vice 'Do's'...

Suzanna Mars said...

Indeed, Riz, it is grotesque! But don't you think that the camel toe, viewed dispassionately, is sort of a negative fashion in and of itself? And rather than mocking it and being merely clever, these revelers were celebrating its position as anti-fashion?

Uh huh.

Meaning, their spectacle and your spectacle quite possibly are two different beasts.
