Although weird, artistic window displays are no surprise in Los Angeles, the Juicy Couture window display on Rodeo Drive actually made us stop in our tracks and ponder it for a while. The first thing that caught our attention was the amount of hardware draped around the model's waist, sort of like a modern-day chastity belt. (And it's a bit of a shame that they missed a perfect "Juicy" branding opportunity there.) Then we started noticing all the disembodied hands modeling rings and holding cakes. Wasn't Halloween over a week ago? And then there's the model wearing two watches. It's like a cotton-candy trainwreck that we just can't look away from.
