Scary Card-Playing Clowns, Lady Gaga Monsters, And Saran-Wrap Savages: Has Fashion Gone Insane?

Fashion has finally proved we're living in the future — and not a utopian streamlined future, but a demented, decadent future where people do psychotic memory drugs, have head-rush upside-down sex and eat their babies. Just check out the evidence.

Here's our collection of the scariest, weirdest and most over-the-top fashion pics from the past week or so, including Lady Gaga-inspired weirdness, prosthetically enhanced evil clowns, and WTF sugar-cube-mouthed people. Most of these pics are from the Berlin Fashion Week, and come from Getty Images — except for the scary "casino clowns" image. Seriously, the scary clown image (#2) is the most horrifying thing we've seen in quite some time.
