On Monday, the models walking the runway in the 2013 menswear collection show were seen carrying “automatic weapons, wearing balaclavas, and sporting red-inked words such as 'ONLY KILL FOR LOVE' on their topless torsos,” according to the Daily Mail.
The show also featured a sandbag-paved runway and models wearing body tattoos, war paint and specific slogans like 'LIFE'S A GAME AND IT'S NOT FAIR'.

When Madonna posted an image of herself wearing a full on Game of Thrones Khaleesi costume on Instagram last week we weren’t exactly surprised—this is the woman who rolled into the Grammy Awards wearing a tuxedo and a grill earlier this winter, so why not celebrate the Jewish holiday of Purim with a leather corset and a pair of tiny dragons? Still, we were hypnotized by her white-blonde, braided Daenerys Targaryen hair. Functioning as a bleached out cultural weather vane of sorts, it tapped into multiple obsessions at once—the return of "Game of Thrones" to HBO, spring’s new extreme hair lengths and, most notably, fashion’s current platinum mania.
