In today's most unbelievable news, three girls dressed as Japanese lolitas tried to convince handlers at Tom Ford's exclusive presentation that one of them was Vogue Japan editor Mitsuko Watanabe, and it actually worked. The fact that they got in isn't even the best part—Watanabe was already inside. They were kicked out shortly thereafter, but if these girls could lie their way into breathing the same air as Anna Wintour, Beyonce and the rest of the model-celebrities modeling Ford's new line, just imagine the possibilities. With two days left of Fashion Week and Halloween six weeks away, it's time to put that pre-holiday costume planning into hyperspeed.[NY Post]
