A UK Guardian hack, covering the R Lauren show, pointed out the obvious:

"...Fashion is always about idealisation, but without a pinch of realism it merely looks like a costume. This was inadvertently highlighted by the models themselves, whose tattoos (still popular among models these days) and multiple ear piercings looked odd juxtaposed against the white angora sweaters and baby-pink satin gowns.
When clothes can't even overcome the reality of a fashion model, you have to wonder how they'll cope with actual women..."

Obviously, that's hardly a concern for those responsible for model selection - and the "clients" seem powerless to do anything about it.

I think the problem with models today isn't that they look too individual for the clothes... it's that they don't look individual ENOUGH. Personally, I can't tell most of the skinny anemic skeletons walking the runway apart from each other...
