For their latest story in an ongoing documentary segment called “Fashion Week Internationale,” Vice takes to the streets of the worlds big-booty and cocaine capital, Colombia.
The series compares the worlds of high fashion Colombian modeling – where mounds of fake yip center the runway and “sleeker, more European” style girls are preferable – and then the more authentic catwalks featuring curvy women, both in naturally and surgically altered forms.
Many of the women in the latter group are accused of having the “narco-aesthetic,” a term made popular with the continued glorification of Colombia’s most infamous icon, Pablo Escobar. At one point the interviewer even takes a trip to his brother Roberto’s house, but I was far more interested by urban pole dancing and the close-up imagery of botched ass implant surgeries. Shit is loco.
