Paris Fashion Week has weighed in on the U.S. presidential race, sort of. "A variation of Palin's signature beehive-with-bangs hairdo was seen at Yves Saint Laurent's spring-summer show on Thursday, when designer Stefano Pilati sent models down the runway with piled-high beehives that appeared to be channeling the 44-year-old former-beauty-queen-turned-vice-presidential-candidate's look, although without the bangs."
