The Barneys Holiday Catalog: Dead Octopus Wig Not For Sale

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

The folks at Copyranter call this the "most disturbing image" in the Barneys New York holiday catalog. Okay, we kind of see where they're coming from—it's a photo of a model wearing an $80,000 necklace and a dead octopus as a wig on her head. (By the way, the dead octopus isn't actually available for purchase at Barneys.)
