I'm not sure which is the greater irony — that a fashion designer (Jean-Paul Gaultier, in fact) designed this ensemble, (doubtless) deliberately spoofing other bare-breasted runway fashions; or that the photo is currently at the top of Yahoo's most-emailed content list — exactly where it would be were the model's breasts actually were exposed.... (The image is worksafe.)

Gee, uncanny resemblance to the Prince formerly known as the artist. Perhaps a separated-at-birth situation?

I can't find the link (even after Googling for 10 minutes), but I think Gaultier borrowed that design from someone else. I remember seeing a site a few months ago with all sorts of clothes with life-size photographic representations of naked bodies on them.
