what? why?

>> We all know that I adore what Nic Ghesquiere has been doing lately, but this strikes me as a bit odd.  Balenciaga is requesting of fashion editors that all designs from the Fall 2006 collection "be shot as complete looks to portray what was represented on the runway," WWD reports.

Not only that, but the fashion house is also asking that no accessories be shot without a total look -- unless it is a still life or a close-up shot.  Where's your respect for creative license, Nic?  I was looking forward to some great editorials with that beautiful clothing, but now I feel like they're all going to look the same!
