Le Smoking at Hermès Fall 2008: Love It or Hate It?

Naughty Natasha Poly. Or shall I say naughty Jean Paul Gaultier for having his model smoke on the Hermès runway! I'm not so intrigued by the clothes, but I am drawn in by what's happening all around. I certainly don't condone smoking, but it works with the mature collection. And the Persian rug-covered catwalk takes me to an exotic place, far, far away. Though I wouldn't realistically wear this look, I dig the combination of the rug, cigarette, and belted coat. Do you?
