Fashion for the well-dressed penguin

The Fashion Police have a lot of love for Norma Kamali. She makes amazing, retro-inspired swimwear… and also fluffy penguin suits. Well, even penguins need their designer fashion fix, don’t they? (Aside: we’d like to award this model a special medal for bravery in the face of fashion crimes. She’s been forced to endure so many indignities this year already, all in the name of fashion… Model, we salute we!)

Not even I would wear this now!” Because it’s 2011, not 1983. Do you copy that, Betsey? (Still love you, though.)
