Breast Behavior at Nina Ricci

Fashion show attendees may be jaded about antifur campaigners bursting onto the catwalk, but they got an eyeful this season when two topless Femen protestors briefly interrupted the Nina Ricci show in Paris. 

With dubiously translated slogans like "Fashion dictaterror" and "Models don't go to brothel" painted over their torsos, they ran out on the catwalk shouting and gesticulating. One of the protesters grabbed the wrist of model Hollie-May Saker, who deftly lifted her arm and continued to walk.

In a statement, the organization said the protest was aimed at revealing the "inhuman aspects" of the fashion industry. "Women sacrifice their lives and their health for this masculine business, which seeks to profit from women by any means," Femen said. "We are sending out a warning to all these pimps and fashion dictators, we are threatening them with our bare breasts."
