Their Clothes? An Investigation

Givenchy’s Matthew Williams, Bottega’s Daniel Lee, and Rick Owens are just a few of the fashion stars baring their chests (and more!).

You might say we live in a post-trend world, where the general fracturing of culture means that giant flares can be popular concurrently with the skinniest trouser.

Are you a nudie or a prudie? When she posted this naked selfie, even her daughter was shocked.
