At her presentation this morning, Norma Kamali decided to show her fall collection on cardboard models, instead of using real ones. (This, on one hand, does eliminate the underaged-model issue.) The presentation was also the launch of Kamali Kulture, the lower-priced line that's under $100 and currently available for pre-order.

And even though these weren't real models, they still towered over everyone else, in all of their massive, cardboard-cutout glory. The idea was cute, but there's something that's just a little bit nerve racking about bumping into larger-than-life paper that's also wearing polka dots. Click through the gallery above for a look at the "clothes."

Update: We've been informed that the cutouts are actually Norma Kamali's official "Glamazons," and you can find them towering over you at her flagship boutique in NYC.
