First a German Top Model appearance, now a runway show: Femen is making their topless rebellion a fixture in the fashion world. Today, the Ukrainian activists stormed the runway of Nina Ricci's Paris Fashion Week show to protest the industry's sexualization. Yes! Body-checking security guards and models in the name of feminism. It's just a matter of time before Chloë Sevigny x Opening Ceremony actually casts them in a show, just like Pussy Riot.
