F is for Faux Pas!

This piece could just as easily been titled "F is for Fish Hat," but you have to admit, the fish hat is definitely a faux pas - especially when worn to some gala event, as pictured here. Marlene has chosen to wear hers to the opera this evening, and it's causing quite a stir. Those little black dots swarming around her are flies, which indicates that this is no faux fish. It's a genuine dead thing, gutted and placed fashionably atop Marlene's lovely head. Marlene knows she's hot, and she thinks she can get away with fashion statements that lesser women couldn't even attempt. She thinks the looks of horror and disgust being shot her way are just jealousy. She's wrong! That is one nasty hat.

In Tim Burton's version of Alice in Wonderland, Alice questions whether her mother if she would follow fashion if fashion meant wearing a codfish on her head. I imagine you have arted up that scene some time before the movie was released. Lovely.
