Odd accessories for fashionable legs
The world of fashion frequently takes some rather odd turns when it is launching its models down the catwalk and none more so than some of the legwear offerings made this week.

According to the Times' fashion pages, one of the slightly more surreal sights during the many catwalks of the last few weeks has been a model clad in tights accessorised with glass.

"Tights with chunks of glass clamped down the sides, guaranteed to wreck your Zanussi, were a particularly useless but not isolated display of things to do with Uhu," fashion reporter Lisa Armstrong remarked.

At the recent Paris Fashion Week, Jean Paul Gaultier has courted controversy by wrapping many of his models in the skins and furs of animals but has also been making statements through his use of hosiery.

Website CatWalkQueen reports that his creations have focused on "duskier shades of primary colours", matched with tights in similar striking colours.
