Hmm, I liked the Dquared2 theme of sexy, kinda punk librarian. A little more subtle than their usual collection though. But what caught my eye was they sent a model down the runway smoking a cigarette. And while I doubt to many young girls follow the shows in Milan, it promotes the idea that a cigarette is a fashion accessory. This bothers me a little, even though I am a smoker, as I thought the mindset of cigarettes = glam was so over. I think the designers are just lashing back after too skinny models got banned in some places; I know in Milan recently ruled that runway models have to be 16 and over and be able to present a medical certificate to show they are not suffering from an eating disorder. Well, it is Europe - everyone smokes! So maybe it's just not a big deal? What do you think?
