This latest trend will give you the hump! Fashion show models take to the catwalk in hunched-back outfits
With style that looked more at home in a horror film than a fashion show, models took to the catwalk yesterday in hunched-back outfits.
These outlandish designs were the latest creations from Dutch fashion duo Viktor and Rolf at Paris Couture Week.
They threw out the fashion rulebook with bizarre hunched and high-padded shoulders on blazers and dresses, that framed the models’ faces.
Twitter users compared Dutch designers Viktor & Rolf’s latest creations to Edward Gorey’s The Gashlycrumb Tinies, Uncle Fester from The Addams Family and Nosferatu, the 1922 silent German film

The look was complete with platform heels, adding to the dramatic height created by the costumes.
The models’ long, talon-like nails, blood-stained lips, high pink blush and hollowed-out eye make up – reminiscent of the 2009 animated horror film Coraline – finished the effect.
The ghostly connotations didn’t go unnoticed on Twitter as users compared the clothes to Edward Gorey’s The Gashlycrumb Tinies, Uncle Fester from The Addams Family and Nosferatu, the 1922 silent German film
