Thank Balmain for clearing that one up.

(People who have the balls to wear jumpsuits probably also have the balls to wear insane patterned ones, the thinking may go.)

Note how this model is wearing TWO, one face on her chest and one face on her face. (Meta face.)

(Balenciaga, always complicating things.)

14. Don't: Wear animals that are instantly recognizable.

My colleague Peggy Wang thinks these are panthers, but they also look like whiskered parrots, which is sort of cheeky.
