Nobody is Perfect, but Really?

I spent time Sunday looking at designer garments from various 2015 Spring runway shows.  I know I'm a little late given most of these shows ran between September and October 2014, but better late than never, right?

I would imagine most designers try their hardest to ensure each design is flawless in its appearance before going down the runway - i.e. hanging properly on the models, no wrinkles, no missing or dangling closures, etc.  After all, the runway is where their potential customers first see their designs, and retail buyers are identifying those items they feel will sell within their stores.  So, imagine my surprise when I saw the following runway mishaps.

First, there was the hanging threads on the shoe of Donna Karan's Look #5.  From the runway itself, this would not be noticeable, but you can't help but see it when publishes a close-up picture.

Now, big picture, this really is not a big deal.  The shoe is cute, and at least the model's feet have been properly pedicured and toes painted.  But then, my further navigation yielded more questionable results.

Here is Guy Laroche's Look #34.  Is that an unfinished hem on the contrast panel?

And, there was the crotch mishap with Giamba's Look #35.  I know that it isn't, but I swear it looks like this model was wearing a displaced sanitary napkin.

What is happening in the crotch area of this runway look?  REALLY?!!  Giamba Spring 2015 Ready-to-Wear - Look 35 -

But, the absolute worst has to be Jean Paul Gaultier's Look #10.

In what universe would anyone think this "look" is runway-worthy?  I'm not so much offended by the belly fluff - hell, I got that!  But, at the very least, a Brazilian wax was in order.  Just...EEEEEWWWWWW!!

Be blessed!
