Vice convinced their friend Elektra to take a hit of acid and then sent her to the tents and then sat back and let the whole ridiculous, hilarious trip unfold in front of them. The show was Topshop Unique, and the observations were–as you can imagine–choice.
Here are some of our favorite parts from poor Elektra’s trip:This. Girl. I mean, really. We are not even exaggerating when we say that this photo literally made our whole afternoon. If you’re thinking this is the person who Vice gave acid to…you’re wrong, but your’e forgiven. This is some other show-goer, whom the aforementioned tripper sees outside Topshop Unique and whom Vice describes as “basically acid health care.”
A tripped-out take on the sometimes shockingly-skinny runway models? Quoth Elektra, “I also started to get really concerned about the well-being of the models. They were so thin! The one with pink hair in particular [Ed. note: You mean Charlotte Free?]. She was a goner. She had a week left, tops. May she rest in peace.”
Elektra photo bombs Nicola Roberts and….
Elektra’s take on the whole experience: “I feel like I’ve been through so much. And SEEN so much. Good stuff and bad. I feel that, from now on, nobody should ever go to fashion week not on acid. It would be stupid.”
And there you have it. Thank you Vice Now we never have to try this out ourselves
