Rick Owens, the avant-garde designer and king of the luxury gothic look, decided to forgo the waif-like models that usually stalk the runway and opted for an exclusive cast of plus-size steppers. After marching out in draped monochromatic looks akin to nun's habits, and sporting mean mugs and menacing looks, the crew of lady steppers broke out into a performance that culminated in a human centipede chain. We're not sure if Bethann Hardison's call for diversity on the runway inspired his provocative show, but either way Owens' performance-driven presentation will be the talk of the town.
