Dress of the Day - July 5, 2011

Dress of the Day: Cartoon from "Punch," the British humour magazine. Today I am thinking about the topic of fashion satire. This cartoon from 1867 pokes fun at the long skirts then in fashion, see caption below.
Positively the last of the long skirts of the season by George Du Maurier. Punch (10 August 1867): 56.
Hostess.“Oh, how Tiresome! Somebody must be Standing on my Dress! Would you just run down-stairs, and see who it is, Mr. Brown?.”
Just as there are people who follow trends in fashion, there are people who refuse to follow the trends or even satirize them. What fashions today do you find ridiculous or funny or worthy of satire, and why?
