Runway Beauty: Marc Jacobs

HIDEOUS. I suppose this was meant to complement Marc's vagabond collection ( called the models "gorgeous urchins"), but this has gone too far. Each and every one of the girls literally looked like a bag lady. Complete with bags under their eyes! I appreciate Marc's vision but this is just not aesthetically pleasing in the least. Deliberately bad hair, purposefully washed out skin, and overemphasized flaws - why do this? Do you hate women, Marc? Why make beautiful women look ugly? And if that's what you're going for, at least make like John Galliano and give us something shocking, like the bloodsucking vampire models.
