Over the knee boots, dyed furs, leopard print, microshorts, dresses made of transparent fabrics with rhinestones scattered in the most piquant places, corsets, logos - along with the image of a wolf from Wall Street in a power suit and a snow-white shirt, like a rare reputation, on the podium there are already several seasons in a row, elements of the wardrobe of another lover of currency, a kind of intergirl, triumph. The outfit of the heroine Julia Roberts from the film Pretty Woman, which in 1990 unambiguously signaled the profession of a hostess, today could easily end up in a wardrobe - and everyday! - from Emily Ratajkowski or any other Insta diva. However, the students have long outdone the teacher: if Vivian Ward was content with a pair of cutouts at the waist, then Ratajkowski somehow happened to come with the same in the hips. And no one even raised an eyebrow: they did not see that.

And what is happening on the catwalks that once put elegance at the fore! Highly moral guardians of spiritual bonds would grab at their hearts if they saw what - by their standards - orgy is going on at the Saint Laurent show, where the current creative director of the brand Anthony Vaccarello bares the models' breasts with enviable regularity: he will make an insert from the mesh at the level of the last, and then it will "cut" the top obliquely. Yes, yes, the nipples that have been trying to free themselves from the shackles of feminist patriarchy for so long (remember the glib #FreeTheNipple hashtag?) Are finally free. At Dior, models literally sparkle with branded lingerie in dresses that leave little room for fancy. Veteran of wedding fashion Vera Wong several seasons ago invited brides to go to the altar practically in their underwear - the skirts were so transparent.Autumn-winter look from Jeremy Scott - an electric blue feather fur coat, panties worn on mesh tights and velvet boots. Models Fausto Puglisi put on the garter belt, and the Fendi shows even more. Dolce & Gabbana, Balenciaga and Michael Kors have sworn allegiance to the predatory leopard. The old Gucci collections, which at one time excited the fashion community and made the name of Tom Ford, cannot be compared with the adventures that Alessandro Michele sometimes embarks on: what is it worth only a brilliant, almost fetishistic value jumpsuit with the same sparkling thousand sequins mask!Dolce & Gabbana, Balenciaga and Michael Kors have sworn allegiance to the predatory leopard.

Here it would be worth shrugging off one’s hands and admitting: everything that for decades was considered synonymous with bad taste, suddenly ceased to be considered either or not at all. But the matter seems to be much more serious: the very concept of "bad taste" no longer exists - it has become so thinned that in the end it simply disappeared, ceased to exist. Of course, emancipation made its contribution: it firmly stands on the fact that a woman can look and dress as she wants - without regard to the expectations of others and the norms imposed by society. In addition, this is the "stupidity" of fashion - if not in its purest form a struggle with objectification, then at least a challenge to the latter: whether intentionally or not, the designers turn the stereotypical sexual into the ordinary, devoid of any agitation. Yes, the revolutions that are just ahead of the world (and then - only if the situation is favorable),in fashion are already burning with might and main. If only because the members of the fashion community are much more open to everything unusual. Moreover, they are hungry for this unusual. While the townsfolk called the mini-skirt replicated by Mary Quant vulgarity, they put gloss on the novelty - and hit the jackpot.

A kind of catalyst - and generational change. Sated millennials with bare hands and other body parts cannot be taken: they did not grow up on Audrey Hepburn and Princess Diana (although they treat them with great respect), but on Rihanna, who can quite afford to appear practically naked for the CFDA award. Kim Kardashian and her many sisters have been seen topless about a million times. We watched "Game of Thrones" with its abundance of explicit scenes. And they hardly react to all this as to eroticism in the classical sense; by no means, nudity for them is the same element of pop culture and even everyday life, like, say, comics. And it doesn't bother at all. This means that micro shorts with over the knee boots will not stir up.>
