WTF, Tisci?

Here is a photo of Janet Jackson circa 1995 at the Video Music Awards wearing a cropped pervert top (as astutely pointed out by Mattie Kahn), not by Givenchy, but baring significant semblance to the modern day incarnation as evidenced by Bryan Boy’s back in the photo at right.

Is the lesson of the day that Jackson predates nearly every trend? We conjured up what the “17” in Ticsi’s version might stand for, but what is that “2” about? Personally, we really appreciate that her loud mouthed, micro-sized top, is chased with a small note in the form of a red ribbon that yells, “oh, and fuck Aids.”
