India Fashion Week Show Mocks Paris Hilton

Paris Hilton cannot escape ridicule. At New Delhi Fashion Week, Geisha Designs poked fun at the socialite with a line of eveningwear that "sought to capture the 'haughty self-display' among the elite." And instead of showing with traditional format where vamping models merely stomp about with frozen faces, the Geisha models strutted the runway as if it were a red carpet:

Models took a stroll down the red carpet, pouting and blowing kisses as they posed for photographers at the edge of the runway. One model clutched a crystal ball, another a half-filled glass of wine while a third cradled a doll.

…[T]he Indian designers said they were just having a bit of fun at Hilton's expense and not condemning celebrity socialites.

"They are here to celebrate dressing up. They want to enjoy life and we just want to enjoy with them as well," [designer Paras] Bairoliya said.

It's nice to see a fashion show have a little fun with the notion of celebrity, isn't it? Meanwhile, the real Paris Hilton is currently working on a reality show for MTV, in which twenty guys and gals will compete to be her "best friend forever." Which makes India look even better.
