What's with Fashion Week's whitened skin obsession?

12 March 2009

Fresh from being wowed by the ghoulishly-white skin and crazily-coloured eyes at the Galliano show last night, we're starting to sense a bit of a pale-faced trend going on in beauty... Dior wowed us with their geisha-like take on '20s flappers, McQueen's 'coke can' girls were sheer alabaster and Viktor & Rolf showed girls with whitened-out complexions – and not much else in the way of make-up. So if three's a trend and four's a phenomenon, the only question that remains is whether you'll be pulling a whitey next season? Answers on a postcard please!
