She broke her pelvis or something; have seen pics of her on twitter with crutches. Don't know how it happened. But that's a drag.

I wish I could give that guy on the steps a warm meal, and a smile.

Don't want to go too OT but that photo says quite a bit about society.

Wow that photo makes me really sad. I mean there are this two different worlds, its not avoidable. But at least you can show a bit of respect and humanity (though I am sure they did not even recognize him)

I'm trying to not look too into that picture. I mean, yea, it speaks levels of us as a society but I find it hard to believe it was done out of malice.

^ I agree.

Was the photographer perhaps trying to make a statement at the expense of the editors? Or about the excesses of fashion in general? In which case, aren't we all culpable? And how can we call these women out, in particular, or Taylor only, for that matter? In my view, it's part of a much larger systemic issue, and it's possible the ladies were asked to stop and pose, not even aware of the man on the stairs. If so, it's a politically interesting image, but I am not judging individuals in this case. I'd like to know about the context before I judge.

If I had to pick a symbol, it'd be this one:

Not Plain Jane: I'm sure they posed for the pic, not even knowing the man was there. Classic case of being in the wrong place at the wrong time.

But I do think it helps perpetuate the idea that the fashion industry is just a big, fancy playground for silly little bubbleheads.

That being said:

For sure: that's why I was thinking maybe the photographer had an agenda?

Looking at the picture I think they were actually posing for another photographer, they all look at the same angle (right) but the picture is taken on a different angle. Maybe this another photographer used the background of the girls posing to make a statement...

Ok I don't know why and obviously I'm the only one to think this... But I can't help to feel this is photoshopped...
