Anyone interested in the fashion world is surely accustomed to its affinity for all things outrageous. Whether it's an outlandish editorial or ad campaign, no one can say the fashion world is lacking in interesting invention. Fantasy has always been a part of fashion. Often, it trickles down to magazines from runway shows where designers and stylists come up with the most creative looks they can muster. (John Galliano, anyone?) But what happens when the realm of fantasy hits the magazines? We're thinking of Dazed and Confused with their line of "lipstick people," or the time British Vogue put Coco Rocha in a hot air balloon. American magazines are just as nuts: Remember the recent V spread of women's body parts emerging from shoes? It's a great display of the magazine's creative energy, but those readers who are not innately fashionable must falter when spreads that are supposed to help them get dressed churn out costumes and set pieces instead. So, what do you think: fantasy fashion, friend or foe? --SABRINA BACON
