Tressed for the Runway: Pubic Hair Fashion Show

Every once in a while, an event will come up that's just too intriguing to pass up. And even better, when you go with all your high-expectations, the night actually holds up and exceeds set expecations. Last night's under-the-radar body art fashion show was one such event.

Artist Stefan Monzon's fashion show-style human exhibit IT'S WHAT'S ON THE OUTSIDE THAT COUNTS promised to be all about pubic hair coiffeurs. Yep, that's right. A high-style couture-conscious runway show with models sans designer duds 'dressed' down below. Complete with hair extensions and embellishments, and 'set' for the runway with holding sprays and gels. Definitely too good to miss.

The event was held at California Market Center in downtown L.A.'s fashion district (site of other more heavily-clothed runway shows during Fashion Week). This being a show where the audience would probably liked to be slightly liquored up, the smart organizers had an open bar with wine/beer/appetizers for 45mins prior to the show, giving plenty of time for the mish-mash of artsy peeps, hipster dudes and dudettes and a very, well, surprisingly normal crowd to get their drink on.

And the strut-friendly DJ beats, one by one, the nude yet very 'decorated' models walked the catwalk with the 'down below decor' getting more elaborate with each outing. These weren't some fancy stencilled Brazilian wax-type grooming job, but artistic, full-fledged 3D hair sculptings, that:
SMOKED (model #1, a sassy Rosario Dawson lookalike with matching gold nipple rings and a smattering of sexy tattoos strutted out with a multi-colored dyed hairpiece embedded with a smoldering incense stick)
INVOLVED PUPPETRY (a Medusa-esque model came out with coiled-hair snakes slithering from her netheregions and underarms, with the help of attached strings which she manipuated down the runway)
FEATURED A PIRATE (MAYBE) (a straw-like figure holding a sword that may or may not have been a pirate attached to the frontal area of a brunette)
AND ENDED WITH LITERAL FANFARE (the last model's 4ft peacock feathers fanned in and out like an accordian as she spun down the catwalk in all her teal-green glory)

Other notable 'pieces' included a blonde with a blue trident and matching thunderbolt tattoo and a leggy, double-blonde wigged model with mermaid-like hair down to her waist...and also hair down to her knees.

After the pube-spectacle, we contemplated the Downtown Standard and Golden Golpher bars nearby, but hunger got the best of us and my date for the night and I ended up grabbing sushi (post-pubes sushi...refraining from any jokes of poor taste here) and pie on the way home instead.

Unfortunately, due to the nature of the show, no cameras were permitted so I don't have any accompanying photos.

It's genuinely very difficult in this active life to listen news on TV, thus I only use world wide web for that purpose, and obtain the most recent news.

I leave a comment whenever I like a article on
a blog or I have something to contribute to the discussion.
Usually it is triggered by the passion communicated in the post
I browsed. And on this post "Tressed for the Runway: Pubic Hair Fashion Show".

I was excited enough to leave a thought ;-) I do have a couple of questions for you if
it's allright. Is it just me or do a few of the remarks look like they are coming from brain dead individuals? :-P And, if you are writing on additional sites, I would like to keep up with you. Would you list all of all your public sites like your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?
