    That's just the way the fashion world operates.


     


    Also, the crowd at a show like Burberry is not going to be whooping it up anyways.  It's low key.  


     

    Yep, I know that. :) Didn't mean to imply it should be like a Surface commercial. Just not such dour expressions. I know the fashion industry lately prefers the models to look like heroin addicts but at least they could be happy heroin addicts! (If there is such a thing!)

    They should trot out a starving African child at the end just to show them where all that money spent on clothes could have gone.

    My opinion only.

    I recognise a person's right to spend money as they wish.

    Most of these models had very typical runway walks.  There's not a lot of variation, with the exceptions of people like Gisele (who is mostly retired from the runway these days) and Karlie Kloss.  Karlie's walk is the most distinctive by far, and one of the reasons she is the top (non-VS) model working these days.

     

    But by the sounds of it, you'd hate her walk even more than these typical examples. :)  You can Google for her if you want.

    Heh. :)

     

    Yeah, the dour expression is part of it.  The model shouldn't be the focus, the clothes should be.  Also, the heroin chic thing went out a number of years ago.  Even Kate Moss, who is primarily responsible for bringing it about, doesn't look like that anymore.  OTOH, most models are obviously thin -- just not as thin as they used to be, and the makeup isn't as extreme as it used to be.

     

    That being said, Karlie Kloss, whom I mentioned above, is 6'1" and approximately 115-120 lbs.  So ... :)

     

    EDIT:  Also, Cara Delevingne, who was in this show, has a distinctive walk, in that she sashays side to side a lot.

    So... there's supposed to be slow-motion in this video?

    I thought heroin chic was a 90s thing?

    Nice radio-controlled track mounted camera rig in the background!

    I'd rather see what the footage looks like at 1080p. 720p was honestly not very sharp, but that might simply be due to YouTube's file compression? Hard to tell.

    Are we to assume the videographers all used the standard Apple Camera app?

    Also, the stills look good.

    Burberry can be expensive, yes.  It's not extreme haute couture, or anything like that.  But sure, a woman can spend $13,000 on a trench coat, or $1,000 on a cashmere skirt, etc.

     


    But that's fashion.  You can say the same about pretty much anything, from automobiles to home theater systems to golf clubs.


     


    I'm sure the amount I spent on my new iMac last winter could have fed a lot of people, too.

    It was.  It's over.  Has been for years, now.

    What phone do you use again?  Does your username mean Give To Rwanda?

    I did not see any. I was getting a few dropped frames towards the end, though. Probably YouTube's fault.

    Bad posture more than bad walk. Models used to know how to stand upright and carry themselves.

    The video could have been over in 3 minutes but took 5x longer. Skip through to the underwear part around 2:30, watch that until about 5:00 and then jump through most of the rest and that's normal speed.

    The quality is much, much better when viewed directly at YouTube. The compression effects of the video post here are obviously horrendous and by no means do the 5S camera justice.

    You can change the quality to 720p with the cog on the video.

    Yeah, but they could put them in a lot of places, even in front of the Apple Stores. Giving money away now and again isn't the solution to the problem, everyone should have an acceptable minimum standard of living by design. Enjoying nice things is fine, it just shouldn't be restricted to a select few.

    Take another look at the models... They were all sprinting. THIS is as slow-mo as they get.

    Those starving Africans need some American Tourister luggage so they can move out of the frickin desert to somewhere there is food and water.

    From 26 seconds in to around 29 seconds, it looks like one of the audience has a superimposed face. He is next to the black guy with the NY hat.
