Once again, the president of the United States has missed the point, though he's not alone. While Calvin Klein's heavy use of the wasted-heroin-look in advertising campaigns has prompted at least one FBI investigation, all his critics say is that, having gone through a drug treatment course in 1988, hublot replica should know better. The issue of "heroin chic" has been simmering for several years, but since the fatal overdose three months ago of fashion-photographer David Sorrenti, whose work often caught the "junkie aesthetic," the veil over the fashion rolexreplica has begun to lift. "I think some people went overboard," says Patrick McCarthy, editorial director of fashion magazine W. "They don't do it deliberately, but swissreplicawatches got carried away by the glamour of the decadence." In British advertising, it's the same story. Ads in London's Underground preach that having a drink is a good way to get through the day--so long as it's the right brand. Mainstream periodicals such as ES Magazine routinely run fashion features of concentration-camp chic in which all the omegareplica appear decidedly unwell. And in more controversial, avant garde magazines such as Dazed and Confused, where the trend is even more extreme, photos of young women eagerly licking bloody cleavers and razor blades are standard fare.
