Naked on the Runway

Forget clothes, models bare all while flaunting the latest hats and wigs.

Who needs them when you're strutting down the runway, modeling hair accessories?

That was the mindset of wig designer Charlie Le Mindu, who showed hot naked models at his runway show on Sunday in London.

The nude models wore only hats, shoes, bags and wigs, but his show was about his collection of hats and wigs.

Le Mindu's "Haute Coiffure" wigs have gotten tons of attention—being featured in Vogue, Marie Claire and the British music paper NME.

In addition to Lady Gaga, his celebrity clients include VV Brown and Veruschka.

Personally, I love some of Le Mindu's funky wigs sold on his online boutique. Like the big Vuitton wig, about $156; I'd wear it for a fun night out. Would you?

But really in regards to the shows, let the models wear clothes and spare us the nudity.

Tell me, what do you think about nude models strutting down the runway?

For those of you who feel that this kind of display is 'degrading' to women I say to you that I prefer to take the classic Greek and Roman perspective.  Such a display honors and glorifies the female as the 'giver of life.'   When one views the statuary of the classic period in places like Rome or Athens you begin to understand that the human body is one of natures most beautiful creations.  Even though we do not all look like the Venus DeMilo or the depiction of David we each in our own unique way have a distinct kind of beauty.  Yes, these ladies are a bit too thin and that is the only thing that I find wrong or offensive.  They should not be forced to look like plaster mannequins just so they can model someone's personal 'wet dream' of a fashion.

I THINK IT IS VERY WRONG TO DISPLAY WOMAN IN THIS WAY I MEAN YOUR SHOWING WIGS... WHY THE NAKED BODY? TO DEGRADE MORE WOMAN?

Just read Obamaisaliar's comments. The hats would have had a better chance of being looked @. Who would want to gaze at the females he mentioned? I just wish I had thought of his handle first!

Thinking  How the heck ya gonna concentrate on HATS? I guess you would have to save the best hats for last just to get some attention on the the main thing. (if that is indeed what they were truely displaying)
