Fashion is hiding its face right now ... literally.
At a show Friday during Cibeles Madrid International Fashion Week in Madrid, models showing off Carlos Diez Diez' Spring/Summer 2008 collection wore a gold contraption covering their faces.
One male model wore gold chains covering part of his face, his mouth and most of his torso, like a long beard.
Female models wore a similar contraption draped around the jawline.
Fashion was looking pretty strange in Berlin too, where a model wearing designer Nadine Miayahara's clothes wore a dark blue shawl covering her mouth during INFASHION Asia-Pacific Weeks.
