Freaky Faces

I’ve never been a fan of realistic mannequins in shops. I’m that awkward girl you see knocking into them and apologising because, my god, they look real, and then blushing when I realise I’ve just apologised to a plastic person. In fact, it doesn’t even need to be a mannequin, any old inanimate object gets human treatment from me. Just last month my best friend got a good laugh at my expense when I walked into a stand of Jack Daniels in Tesco, apologised and carried on completely oblivious.

Wigs on mannequins pushed me, I’ll admit. Now even a lack of hair won’t help you figure out if the person who’s top you like is breathing or not. But I could handle it.
Until now.

As part of their new line, modeled by Lana Del Ray, H&M have added false eyelashes to their mannequins.
Eyelashes.
I kid you not.
Am I really the only one who thinks this is a step too far? I mean come on, what’s next, toenails and nose hairs? Plus, aside from being completely unnecessary, I just think their creepy as hell.

What do you think about H&M’s new advertising campaign?
