The windows at Barneys currently display an homage to Iman, to whom the CFDA will give the Fashion Icon prize at its annual awards next month. A collage of photos of Iman rests on the floor of the window. In some images her breast are exposed, but another that the Post seems to have found particularly offensive includes a front view of a naked man with insanely chiseled abs. The Post reports that as of yesterday the picture had been moved farther back in the display. But in a hard-hitting investigative video report of this situation, a stylist on the street tells the Post he has no problem with the penis, which you have to hunt for to spot. “I thought I’d see that on the Lower East Side. I think that’s fabulous!” he said. “It’s a beautiful penis.” The Post reporter wonders if this is appropriate for children’s eye level. “It’s New York. Kids have seen worse,” the stylist says. The paper seems far less bothered by Iman’s bare breasts.
