Going through so many fashion images every week, it’s easy to get a bit cynical seeing page after page of models in the same old contorted poses making the same old haughty (and oh-so-serious) fashion faces. So when I stumble upon something a little different, a little silly or cheesy, it breaks the monotony, pushes away any cynicism and reminds me that fashion can indeed still be fun.
