    Just about to read it now - I've seen that site before (articles about Eyes Wide Shut); it's nuts but interesting.

    "Wah wah wah, the models are too skinny, do u want us to lyke, die 4 fashion or sumthin?"

    Death is the subject of all kinds of art - music, visual art, movies, books, and yes, even fashion. It's been glamorized for hundreds of years. Just because Western culture is afraid of it doesn't mean we shouldn't talk about it.

    ^ fashion has a peculiar relation to death though - because of its specific time structure.
    there's lots of good (better) literature on fadhion and death, i can recommend stuff if anybody's interested.

    I'm curious what you mean by time structure! Can you say more?

    I know that this is thread is a bit old, but isn't it funny that The Neon Demon - that is, the only high fashion-themed movie that's come out in a while (that I can think of, anyways) - is very dark/death-centered?
