The window display, celebrating “Sin City”, has been produced by celebrity photographer David LaChapelle, and features the aforementioned neon moving pole dancers, a neon stripper, and even more perturbingly, a window full of around 8 disembodied giant, pink inflatable boobs which inflate and deflate at regular intervals. These sit next to windows containing neon dollar signs, inflatable hot dogs and burgers, and flashing XXX signs.
The Evening Standard explains that “the Vegas showgirl look is enjoying something of a fashion moment this season … at Versace, skintight cocktail dresses and high showgirl hair looked like a deluxe take on hooker chic.”
Hm… so, what to conclude from all this? Could the inflatable boob window display be a satirical comment on the fake, superficial, plastic surgery culture? Why not check out some of the images on LaChapelle’s website, and drawyourownconclusionsabout his attitudetowardswomen. (Fans of Moby may be advised to brace yourselves before doing this. Don’t say you weren’t warned.)
