Why it’s important: Because a dress embellished with what looks like giant fake eyelashes is always noteworthy. And I’ve been looking for a pair of pants that can give me that awesome thigh-chafing sensation I could only previously find in skirts and dresses.

Why it’s important: Because it makes dressing like you’re the unlucky lead in a slasher flick seem appealing. Also, it will make a great addition to menstrual fashion blog Period Clothes.

Why it’s important: Because the look on the right might be representative of an origami uterus and it might not. Either way, they’re all structurally very impressive.

Why it’s important: Because the outfit on the far left is what a sexy modern day Jafar from Aladdin would wear. The others are possibly gratuitous.
