Oil & Fashion are now like oil and water.

With the sheer amount of oil-based products needed to allow fashion commerce to exist, you would think they'd just send a gaggle of sleazy fashion photographers and models down there and they'd soak up all the oil anyway. But no, they send Steven Meisel and ONE model. At this rate, nothing will get cleaned-up.

Whenever fashion photographers try to get political it rarely works. They lack the conceptual rigor of fine artists, which is why they should have either sent the gaggles as I mentioned, or Thomas Hirschorn, some duct tape and a model. He would have made better use of the limitations.
