This afternoon, the Times fashion blog ran a post about how male models can't walk. It's ostensibly a look at a Washington Post article in which a dance critic discusses model movement, but it reads like a deleted Zoolander scene. This is just the first sentence: "At the Calvin Klein men’s show on Sunday, one model walked into a wall, a few awkwardly bumped into each other as they passed on the runway, and one looked as if he was going to keel over from the sheer effort of trying to walk in a straight line."
