Dries van Noten showed his fall 2012 menswear collection in Paris yesterday. While the models walked, a group of artists painted large-scale murals on the runway's backdrop — with no "wet paint" warning signs in sight. Sure, Anna Dello Russo probably has a change of clothes handy, but this could be just disastrous for some other poor showgoer who gets paint stains on their ostentatious nice  outfit.
