The World Has Gone Mad -- This Is Officially The Most Ridiculous Thing To Happen On A Runway

But first, let me take a selfie.

Nothing epitomizes that statement more than the Dolce & Gabbana models during Milan Fashion Week. As part of D&G’s spring runway show, the models snapped selfies mid-runway walk. These images were later uploaded to the brand’s Instagram account.

Look, I get it, selfies are thing. They have made themselves a permanent fixture in our culture; they aren’t going away anytime soon. But honestly, isn’t this just slightly ridiculous and also somewhat distracting? The point of fashion week is for designers to debut their new collections to the world and to set the trends for the upcoming seasons. Editors and celebrities, the people that are deciding what’s in and out, go to these events to appreciate the collections, the color and structure of the different pieces, not to watch models snap stereotypical duck face poses on the middle of the runway. As someone who is desperately trying to oppose the selfie onslaught, seeing this kills me.

Also, on a somewhat bitchier note, isn’t asking the models to walk, pose, and take selfies at once just a little bit too taxing on their fragile bodies? Let’s save some lives and curtail the selfie movement.
