Sometimes, Fashion Confuses Its Own Kind (NSFW)

Maggie Rizer, on the 1998 Yohji Yamamoto ad that caused Tavi's blog to get shut down briefly: "I remember thinking during that photo how cool I thought the boots were and how confused I was that I was naked with streamers. In my mind it would have made so much more sense if I was naked and looking sexy, than looking like I was in my birthday suit for real. [Photographers] Inez and Vinhoodh took it literally I guess. At any rate, I still have the boots — Yohji gave me a few pairs in a couple of styles. They're pretty beaten up now, just about perfect." [Racked]
