There's a VERY fine line between art and a totally tasteless portrayal of suicide, and Vice magazine definitely straddled it with a fashion spread called "Last Words" in the their Women in Fiction issue.
The spread features models reenacting the suicides of famous writers, including Virginia Woolf, Dorothy Parker (who attempted suicide several times but ultimately died of a heart attack at 73), Charlotte Perkins Gilman, Sylvia Plath, Taiwanese author Sanmao, historian Iris Chang, and poet Elise Cowen.
Like any typical fashion story, the models' outfits were meticulously styled

If you're not rich and own fur, you are making a big fashion faux pas in the shaded eye of Karl Lagerfeld.
Unkle K recently shared his thoughts about fur with Vice magazine, saying:
"If you cannot afford it, just forget about it. Don't use it as an investment piece to show people how rich you are. Use it like a cheap knitted thing. It's like a big stone. Lucky you that you can have a big stone, but if it troubles you financially to have the stone, don't have the stone. If you can afford it, OK. But if you think it's an investment, then forget about it."
Karl also explains his use of fake fur, adding "I don't like that people butcher animals, but I don't like them to butcher humans either, which is apparently very popular in the world."
Oh, Unkle K, you and your logic never ceases to amaze us.
