Vogue China Shows You How Not To Wear Fake Tattoos

Ever since Karl Lagerfeld stuck a few temporary tattoos on some models at Chanel‘s Spring 2010 show, ink has been in. Colored or black, words or images, fake tattoos are officially all the rage. They’ve appeared prominently on the Chanel, Rodarte and Gautier runways, and most recently, on the pages of Vogue.

Model Marloes Horst recently posed in nothing (literally) but a bunch of fake tattoos for a spread titled, Tattoo Me Beautiful in China Vogue’s May 2010 issue. We’ll admit it: we’re a little into the tattoo trend. But these tattoos? Not so much.

The delicate image of Marloes tangled up in a tattooed-looking sheer cloth redeems a spread that for the most part, seemed to fall just short of what could have been great — had the stylist channeled more Rodarte and less Miami Beach.
