Karolina Kurkova Probably Picked A Bad Time To Wear A Dress Printed With Assault Rifles

We’ve never been thrilled about the fashion industry’s fondness for taking a provocative image and printing it all over clothes for the sake of, well, more provocation.

As we mentioned, noted bombshell Megan Fox has the cover and corresponding interview of this month’s Esquire. In previews, the piece had already made the rounds for douchey quotes: Megan compares being famous to being bullied, yet still doesn’t see why people would rather spend their sympathy on those without mansions and Bentleys. Now, the full profile has made it online and intrepid bloggers have finally managed to read it. Turns out, the whole thing is about as fun as sticking pins in your eyes. More »
